Default Leveling 06 2500 4x4

Looking to put 305/65/18'S on my '06 2500 4x4 Quad cab. There are a bunch of leveling kits out there. 2" and 2.5" Which is gonna be my best bang for the buck? Looking for the easiest/cheapest setup.

Those tires should actually fit without a leveling kit.
Cheapest best solution is by far Hell Bent Steel spacers.
Measure from the center of your axle to your wheel lip in the front and the back to see if you need a 2" or 2.5"
I have a 2" spacer ($65 shipped from HBS!) and still have factory length shocks but if recomend getting an extended shock for a better ride. With stock length you limit your wheel travel and the ride is a little bit harder
Any other question please ask

Thanks for the response! I just got the truck and it has the fugly OEM steel wheels on it with mismatched tires. I want something that will fill the wheel well. If I dont have to level it at this time it will save me money. Although I dont care for the whole nose down look of the truck And will level it at some point.

The tires I want are BFG all terrain TA




and the wheels I am looking at are these Ion Alloy model 171
