Default 2" level kit pics bfor/ after

Just put a 2" level kit on the front of my 2012, i went with the hell bent steel.
decided not to do the Bilstiens cuz my shocks only have 15000mi on them.
figured if i didnt like it, id change to the Bilstiens.
everything works great, no different from stock handling. i did have it aligned after install

Looks perfect!

I went the same route on mine for the same reason. Figured if I didn't like it, I can take it off and give it to someone else.

two options are usually
1) change shocks to an adjustable, like the bilstien 5100
2) use a lift kit that bolts on to your existing shock
i chose not to spend the money to change shocks, and went with the lift kit.
