Default 2003 Dodge Ram Help

Im to the forum and I'm needing to know what to do about my truck. Its a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 2x4 and I want it to be level. I'm not sure and I don't know much about trucks and everything that goes with them. But I need to know how big of a leveling kit I will need to level it out.
Thanks,
J

Thank you that is what I needed to know. So this is what I'll be needing? And is that a good price?

You have front torsion bars like my 05. You should be able to adjust them enough. I put an extra leaf on mine, then raised the front to get rid of most of the rake. It still looks level with 2,000 lbs in the bed. As mine is 4x4, you may be different, but at least check cause torsion bars are easy to adjust.

Now I was told that I don't have torsion bars on my truck. Cause that's what I was originally going to do. But I've also have had family members tell me that know about this kinda stuff told me not to do that cause it will mess it up. Idk what to do. I have people tell me to do it and then people tell me not to do it.
