Lifting stock 05 f-250

So I have an 05 f-250 4x4. The front end sits lower than some chevys with timbrens. I hate it. I want to raise it up a bit. I was looking at this kit on ebay. Is this a good choice? any advice help would be gladly appreciated. Thanks

Do you do any snowplowing with the truck?

I responded to your PM.

Depending how tall you are looking to go will determine the best route to achieve the height.

For a 2" I would go with the BDS that I linked above.

Ifyou snow plow get factory 7k lbs springs..their are designed for what your using the truck for and will give you 2"+- Get a Adj track bar and castor plugs..and a set of Bilsteins and you will be happy.

Ready lift has a 2.5" leveling kit that will clear a 37 on stock rims and they also have a 2.5 sst lift they call it, supposed to be real nice stuff and it wont affect your spring rates if you plow.

is it true that on the 05+ model years, that 37's will fit with a 2.5 leveling kit?
Not tryin to hijack this thread, but I have an 06 F350 srw with 33's and they look so small.... I'd like to put 37's under her if possible.
