Talking Newbie Help! Rough Country 2.5' Level or Combo Kit?

I'm new to the forum and a new 12' Ram 1500 owner as of about 3 days ago. Anyways I love the truck, HATE the rake. I traded in my old 05' Ram Diesel with a 3' lift and 34's so this truck feels like I'm driving a car so I really want to raise it at least a little or level it out. As much as I'd love a lift I can't afford it with the increase in truck payments so I'm thinking one of these two:

OR

http://roughcountry.com/suspension/4...ram_combo.html

Any thoughts? Anyone have any pictures out there? How do you guys think it would look on stock wheels (since I won't be able to afford new ones for awhile)?

Check out the 2.5 inch front leveling spacers on Ebay by the seller Sprngbender. I bought these and installed them. Best 70 bucks I ever spent on a vehicle. Replaced the OEM tires with Nitto Terra Grapplers (went from 32 inch to 34 inch). They filled the wheel well nicely.

Is this on a 2WD or 4WD? I'm looking for a level kit for my 2WD and not sure what to get...

I was incorrect, the 2wd uses a spring spacer, the 4wd uses a spacer on top of the strut/spring combo...
