Default Body Kt VS Leveling Kit

Hey I'm a little in between which one I should get. Which will sit higher a 2.5 front and 1.5 rear leveling kit or a 2" body kit. I have a 2X4 and want a little more height on the truck. I'm looking at 33" tires and hopefully keeping the same wheels if 33" tires fit on them. Also which brand is the best or most reasonable priced for the kits. Thanks.

no such thing as a 2 inch body lift for these trucks, its either 1.25 or 3 inch body lift. the levelling kits seem to be very popular, you could also go with a rough country combo kit which gives you the 2.5 level kit and a 1.25 body lift for 3.75 inch of lift thats the route i went. i running 34.5 with just the levelling kit right now. in the end i will have 3.75 inches of lift for 300 bucks compared to 4 inch lift for 4000

i looked into the rough country and the leveling kit says it is only for 4WD. I am looking at doing the same but can not seem to find a level kit and or body lift that will give me that 3 to 4 inch clearance for a 2WD

I have cooper zeon ltz 305/55 on the stock 20's on my 09 2wd without any lift. The tired are a 33x 12.1 or so. With a better offset wheel and the 1.5 inch leveling kit I just got in it should clear a 33/12.50 with the right offset. I have seen a 09 at the lot with a 3" bodylift running 35x12.50 on fuel wheels
