Default Leveling question

I want to level my 2011 Ram 4x4 1500 but am not in a position to be able to buy rims and tires. Any one know how the truck would look with stock rims and tires leveled? I am also very concerned about loosing my smooth ride and towing capacity as I haul a large trailer and jeep often. Lastly, I want it to still fit in the garage.

Help is appreciated.

From pictures I have seen of others, I think it looks good leveling and leaving the stock tires and rims. That is what I am going to do when I get the time.

x2, I think everything looks great with stockers on and a leveling kit. No towing problems but the truck will look funny with alot of weight on the back end. And the ride is the same if not better, but make sure to get it aligned after the kit is put on.

X3 A leveled truck looks better no matter what the size of the wheel and tire you have on it.

you can look at my album, and see a 2" front and rear kit installed with stock tires and wheels... ride and towing are still the same...I did install rear air bags, for extra heavy loads or towing
