Default 2010 4x2 help me level it

Could really use some input on leveling my truck. Little info to start I have a 2010 ram 1500 4x2. Has stock rims and tires (275x60x20). I'm more interested in getting rid of my rake. I have read a lot of forums here but still can't decide on what to.

1) I've already measured my front and rear and I need a 2.5" level.
2) I've seen a few kits that lift the from and back such as an ex. A 2.5 front and 1.75 rear. Correct me if I'm wrong but that will just lift the truck up and I'll still be left with the same rake correct?
3) does anyone have any good brands with just a 2.5" level for the front?
4) tires are also in the future... Probuably some nitto grapplers so if I just do the 2.5" in the front what the best tire suggestion? 33""
5) if I get 33" or 35" will I need a spacer as well?

Any help here would be grateful or any suggestions better then my idea above would be great. I promise to post pics if I can get some good advice and get the work done!!

Most 2wd leveling kits are the polyurethane spacers. (personally not a fan, but that's seems to be your only choice). I saw a thread about a guy on another forum using a top gun customs 2" leveling for his 2010 2wd and that it was made of steel. But couldn't find it on TGCs website. Regardless, the polyurethane types are all over the internet, just google it.

Once you level, assuming you can get 2.5" you'll be able to run 35x12." tires with a 1/4" spacer. (if using stock wheels) If you go aftermarket wheels then you can just buy a 0 to negative offset wheel.

If you only get 2" out of the level, it might be a slightly tighter fit and depending on the brand tire you get (some run big, some run small) you could have minor rubbing. Easily fixed by some trimming.
