I think i saw a similar thread the other day. I have a 2.5" leveling kit. Truck looks good just sitting there but now squats significantly when hooked to a loaded trailer. The Bilstiens may have a better effect. I wish now that I just saved and went with a 4'' lift. I may still be doing that in the future. IMHO once you go with a leveling kit you will wish you had gone with a lift. I am not sure how big a tire you can get under a leveling kit, I am sure someone will chime in with that info. It is all a personal preference. Just go to the picture thread and look at the trucks withk lifts and levels and see which you like the best and which may fit your needs/wants the most.

I went with the 2.5" HellBentSteel level. I really like the way it sits now. I have a 1" rake now instead of the 3 it came with! On the website they say a 35" tire could fit, but they recommend a 34. I don't plan on going bigger than a 33, just a more aggressive tire.
I've also heard a lot of good things about the truxx leveling kits and Bilstein adjustable shocks. Good luck..
