Truckr, I have a 2.5 kit ready to put on. Do you think I need the rear as well? Is your rear higher than the front? It looks a little higher from the pictures.

It seems every truck sits a little different. I'd say the best way to tell without putting it on is to go out on level ground and measure from the ground to the wheel well and see how much difference there is between the front and the rear.
I can say on my truck, if I had anything less than 1.5 I would be nose high. I've been looking at it very closely the last couple days and have decided I am probably as close to level as can be without being nose high. I actually wouldn't mind having a tad bit more height to the rear to be honest, but that is just me being picky. Good luck, and you will love how the truck looks with the new kit

Love the way your truck sits/looks.

Excuse my ignorance here.....

If you have a 2.5" level up front and another 1.5" level in the ass end [compared to the OEM nose-dive] how then does your truck look damn near level sitting?

I thought the 4th Gens sit dead level with [just] a 2.5" front hike.

Shouldn't the back end still sit [noticeably] higher with that combo you have?

What am I missing..... maybe it's just the angle of the pics, dunno.

romr: No, there was no rubbing, I took off the molded mud flaps because I did not want them rubbing on my paint. I replaced them with the heavy duty rubber Mopar flaps.
Grubrunner: Yeah, I hear ya man. I think the front sits high too. I had the kit installed and I thought they did the install wrong, but I had it checked and it was in fact done correct. I have chalked it up to every truck sits a tad different. I have a bad feeling my CV's are screaming though.
If you do look at TGC's site they have a pic of a 2.5 front with a 0.75 rear, and I think it looks nose high. So I don't have an answer for you except measure your fender wheel wells to determine what rake your truck has.
