Default Leveling Kits

Looking to level my 2WD truck with some 2.5" spacers. Any recommendations on leveling kits?

Maxtrak or CST are going to be your two best options to look at for a 2wd leveling kit.

I've got a 2011 ram 1500 CrewCab that I bought brand new and had a ReadyLift 2.5" levelling kit on it since the first month I had it. No problems in 5 years.

Buy Billsteins or Ranchos. Leveling kits are junk.

I put heavier coil springs in the rear and bilstein 5100 adjustable struts in the front set to 2.8 inches. Love the look now

Neither of these are applicable to a 2wd truck.

Newbie here, first time posting! Need some help. I'm putting on a 2" leveling kit by Hell Bent Steel this week on my 2011 Ram 1500 quad cab 4x4. My rear is currently 39" and the front is 36.5". Just wondering if anyone know what size tires I'll be able to put on it? Thanks!

Anything 35" and less. Leveled you can get up to a 35 from what Ive gathered.
