Tire and lift questions!!

I just purchased my first diesel, I is an 07 lariat 6.0, I'm looking into a bigger set of tires that are 285/65r20s on my stock rims, I was hoping someone can enlighten me on the type of lift I should get for it, I know I can stuff them under the wheel well as is but I was looking to give it a little lift at the same time, money is tight because I'm 19, and I'm towing a fifth wheel through thick mud half the time. Any suggestions on leveling kit or lift? Do they make a body lift for my truck? Thak you!

285s should fit no problem, no need for a lift.

I have 325/60r20 on just a leveling kit. Your 285s (like mentioned above) will fit without a problem

I'm looking to raise it up a bit anyways with out a doubt but I'm not sure what leveling kit I should buy, I was hoping for a 3 inch but I think I'll have to go with 2.5" what is the best bang for my buck as far as a leveling kit?

Whatever you buy remember this, you get what you paid for. There's more to lifting the front of an '07 than just stuffing in a set of coil spacers.

Could you by any chance link me to the Craig's list post? Chances are I won't see the post if he's in a different state

Best option IMHO for a level would be a set of 1.5" spacers. That would make you just about level and it doesn't put the front end too out of whack. But like stated above ^^^ cheaper is not better. Search the forums, there's plenty of reading out there.
