Default Leveling kit on 2014 1500 tradesman

Newbie here with a few questions from all the pro's. I have read thousands of posts about leveling kits and wheel and tire options. I have a shop in town that has always worked on all my trucks, but I've never owned a brand new truck and done any mods. I just bought a 2014 1500 Tradesman back in March. After doing my own measurements, I found my truck to have 2" of factory rake. Is there anyone out here running both front and rear spacers on their 2014? Pictures would be extremely helpful as well. My guy in town told me he could get me the 2.5" front with a 1.5" rear kit from Readylift. I would like to run 295/65 R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers with 20X9 Fuel Hostage wheels on this setup. Any experts have any advice??? Please help!!!

No problem man. If you have any more questions feel free to post them up in either that thread or this one and I can help you out.

There's definitely a lot of guys running some sort of leveling kit on their 2014's and a number of them running rear coil spacers as well. The suspension from 09-14 hasn't changed at all so anything you find for a 4th gen 1500 will apply to your truck as well.

I will definitely post up on your thread to try and see what guys are running. Have you heard anything about the 2013-2014's having ball join issues? I read on here a couple cases of that happening but I called all the guys I use for truck mods (professional mechanics) and even called Chrysler and they said there isn't an actual defect. They said it is a potential case by case basis. I honestly just don't want to mess up or shorten the life of my first brand new truck, ya know?

Ya there's been a few guys having that issue... but the percentage of guys having a problem compared to the guys that are not is very low. I wouldn't worry about it.

thank you sir! What do you think would be a good round-a-bout amount that I would have to pay someone to level out my 2WD 2006 Quad Cab? Looking over the instructions and it is a bit out of my wheel house.
