Default What kind of leveling kit are you running on your 2012?

Anyone know of any good kits? Does anyone have a tuff country leveling kit? I noticed they are noticeably cheaper than ready lift. Any input is appreciated

I went with rough country 2.5/1.75. I didn't want to just level my truck. I wanted to add a little height all around. I do use my truck and I didn't want the nose of the truck up in the air when towing or hauling. I think I paid about $130 shipped and 2 hours of my time to install it.

Was the ride affected with either of your kits? I love the way it rides stock but can't stand the raked look

I have the HBS 2" kit. Didn't mess with the ride at all. No wobble no problems At all. Was a bit intimidating to install cause I am by no means a mechanic. But I did it and it looks great
