Which Leveling Kit?

While I'd really rather lower the truck, being a 4wd it's not going to happen. So, I'm thinking about just leveling it out since I'm already running 33's. So which leveling kit should I go with that won't cost me an arm and a leg, but is still a quality kit?

Go with a mini spring pack, or if you're on a budget like I was, just do an add-a-leaf kit. Rides like factory.

A mini spring pack willbe able to reuse the stock length shocks were a add-a-leaf may require longer shocks and should not ride as good as stock. Both should use a adj track bar to recenter the axle as it will shift aprox 3/4" We sell all but add-a-leafs. If I can help PM me.

As stated, bang for the buck a QUALITY mini pack will do the job. Its less expensive than a hanger/shackle kit and allows you to reuse your shocks. If you need to replace your shocks anyway, I would go with a hanger kit. Dont get a cheap mini pack, as all they are is bundled plate steel. Make sure the pack is actually spring steel. Cary at CT will sell you the right stuff. If you decide to go with the hangers and would like to consider ours, just shoot me a pm.

I went with Rancho 2.5" lift springs in the front and 3" Blocks in the rear. Running 295/65R20 nitto trail grapplers. Ive got less than 200 in the whole setup. Just had to look around the web to find a deal on the springs and got the blocks from a local offroad shop.
