Default Leveling Kit Ordered, Truck goes in this week. Few Questions

Hey guys, Well I decided to go with this kit for my 2011 Sport.
http://www.readylift.com/c-246-dodge...d-only-25.aspx

Oh and before I forget, Mine is a 4x4 of course and it also has the auto 4x4 option as well, the truck came with it, otherwise I would have not gotten the option If I had the truck built. I have been told that auto 4x4 is a no no, to hard on the truck. Does this matter if it is auto 4x4? Again I never use this either, If I need 4x4, I got in 4x4 not auto

My friend works at a dealer and is knocking off close to 50.00 so that's a fair price!

Anyways this is my first truck and I know lots of guys tend to level the trucks after they get them, after really looking at the truck for a while I see why, the front is just to low and sloped at an angle and just doesnt look right. My question is

- Since this is the 2.5' lift is there anything I should do to the back before the shop installs the kit? A lot of guys have told me I won't need to both with the back at the moment because it is quite higher to begin with. As for actual truck mods I would like to lift it in a year or two and out new tires and rims on, but for now this will do.

I'd really like to hear some advice from some of the pros here seeing as lots know much more than your basic service tech. This is my first truck so I'm new

The correct leveling kit installed well should need no extras. But I would suggest some bigger tires to fill out the truck a little more plus who don't like big tires and before anyone else says it don't forget the pics! Good luck

especially on the pics. My Ram doesn't have the auto 4x4, but I was switching back and forth a lot today because some streets were good and others weren't. Worked fine that way. I'm not sure if the auto 4x4 is bad for the truck because it seems it would simply do what I did but without my input.

Cool, can't wait for feedback and pics or course. I do have the Auto 4X4 and it works great, set and forget. Also, no worries about damage by leaving it on while running on dry pavement.
