Ok heres the situation. I have a 2wd 2010 1500 laramie crew cab and im wanting to level it out and put some bigger rubber on her.

Level Kits: So far ones i have found for 2wd's are Daystar and Truxxx. Are there any others out there im missing?
- Im looking for a 2" level

Tires: Im wanting to get 35's on the stock rims (20x9 if im not mistaken) I like the agressive look of a MT tire but i would like one that doesnt have much road noise (humming) or if there is some noise not so bad that radio/exhaust cant drowned it out
-I have heard great things about the nitto Trail grapplers and the TOYO open country MT. also the Nitto Terra Grapplers were recommended to me but i think these would lack the aggressive look im going for. what are yalls thoughts?
--Most of all would any of these MT tires look stupid or ridiculous on the laramie stock rims? (it will be used as highway driver + farm worker)

Thanks in advance and as customary of this forum pictures are very much appreicated!!

Heres a couple pics of her.

My vote goes to Toyo M/T. I have them and love them. They do have a little hum but personally I like that.

I run 35's on my stock rims, can't you do the bilstein 5100 shocks for the level? Here is a pic of mine with stock rims, tires are Federal Couragia 35x12.50x20...there are some for sale on here at a great price to.

They will look great. Mine are on my stock painted 20's and I'm always getting compliments on them.

Those look great on the sport rims! Mine are the six spoke style (or however you want to put it) and no sadly i cant run the 5100 because they are for 4x4 only and sadly im 2wd :i_rolleyes:

Your ride looks awesome!

Your truck looks great! I went with a 2" level kit from truxxx. i wanted to go with one that was made of steel and not the polyurethane

I dont know about who all makes a leveling kit for your truck (mines an old body 2001) but the nitto terra grapplers that you mentioned I've never had but I had a brother in law that had a set on his Chevy 2500 and they were great as far as road noise went but they didn't last no time. As best i can remember I don't believe he got 30,000 miles out of them and before anybody says anything this guy was anal about his truck and had money and always made sure it was aligned this may not be the case normally but just thought i'd put it out there

Yeah it seems like everyone has different experiences with them. Some say they last along time others not so much. I do appreciate the info!:smileup:

Which setting do you have your 5100s set to? I have the Daystar leveling kit and I'm still 1.5 inches of being level. Thinking about changing them out to Bilsteins. Also, do you have a pic from the front or rear showing how fat those Federals stick out from under the wheel well? Your truck looks ridiculously good!
