Question I want, nay, NEED your opinions!

Ok heres the situation. I have a 2wd 2010 1500 laramie crew cab and im wanting to level it out and put some bigger rubber on her.

Level Kits: So far ones i have found for 2wd's are Daystar and Truxxx. Are there any others out there im missing?
- Im looking for a 2" level

Tires: Im wanting to get 35's on the stock rims (20x9 if im not mistaken) I like the agressive look of a MT tire but i would like one that doesnt have much road noise (humming) or if there is some noise not so bad that radio/exhaust cant drowned it out
-I have heard great things about the nitto Trail grapplers and the TOYO open country MT. also the Nitto Terre Grapplers were recommended to me but i think these would lack the aggressive look im going for. what are yalls thoughts?
--Most of all would any of these MT tires look stupid or ridiculous on the laramie stock rims? (it will be used as highway driver + farm worker)

Thanks in advance and as customary of this forum pictures are very much appreicated!!

Heres a couple pics of her.

Can't help you too much on the tires, I still have stock
HOWEVER, head over to Fat Bob's Garage for a 2wd 2" leveling kit. I picked up the kit plus Pro Comp ES9000 shocks for $180 (with shipping)

Here is the link

Also, check out my thread in this suspension section titled: Another leveling kit thread for some before/after pics. They aren't the greatest pics, but it gets the point across

Thanks for the leveling kit info! what other shocks might be a good replacement that would be about 2 inches longer to accommodate for the level?

From what the dude on the phone from Fat Bobs Garage said, the ES9000s are designed to accommodate the leveling kit, because they are a bit longer. The ES3000s fit, but the guy suggested the 9000s...maybe he just wanted more money??

I really don't know what other shocks would work. I am pretty ignorant when it comes to mechanical stuff. You want your TV and home theater installed and calibrated, I could help...but with shocks or installing parts, I really don't know.
