Default Leveling kit pictures?

Anybody out there with a leveling kit please post up some pics and what kit you went with! I'm trying to decide exactly what I want to do and pics would sure help. Also, I'd just be curious to hear what others stock rake amounts have been. I've got about 3.25" stock rake.

I've had the Bilsteins in since nov 2010 and love them. IMHO it is hands down the best way to level your truck. My thread on install with measurements and pics is here

Not a fourth gen but...lol
It's has an HBS 2" and has about a 3/4" difference front to back. Have been thinking about a 1" block in the rear recently.
In my opinion either bilstien ride height adjustable shocks or hell bent steel spacers are the only way to go. I've heard more complaints about daystar spacers then I have good things. HBS are top quality and yet inexpensive.

I have Bilsteins as well. Mine are set at the 1.4" setting though. Still leaves the back a little high. If I didn't tow as much as I tend to do then I'd go higher. Still thinking of going to the 2" setting though.

Here's when I had my old wheels:



And here's am updated pic with the new wheels are slightly larger tires (33's):

No problems at all, if I remember right the mopar level kit is made by either rough country or daystar. Maybe someone can chime in on that
