Here is mine 2.5" top gun customz with a 4" block has slight rake, def no cali look. not sure how much you were wanting to spend but if your wanting to go taller than 4" in the rear i'd look at getting new leafs, someone on here has that ill see if i can find that picture.

Go 5". If u go 4", although it will technically be level, it will "look" higher in the front. Seem it way too many times.

Also, if u go with any sort of higher block in the rear and a bigger tire, be prepared for axle wrap and purchase some traction bars.

i did the 3.5" leveling kit from readylift and got the 5" rear block.. rear is about 1/2" lower than the front.. its only noticeable depending on the angle i'm parked at.. otherwise, just riding down the road it looks level. but i might be getting an add-a-leaf to bring it up a little more in the rear.

This is my truck with 5" blocks in the rear and a 2.5" front leveling kit. I like the back a little higher than the front. I hate to pull a trailer and have the back squat down.

Im in the same boat... I have a 250 and ordered a 4" block from Newton. I'm going to run my stock tires for a while, and buy a 2" or 2.5" leveling kit later on. Wanting to run 325's

I can always make my 4" block into a 4.5" later since its steel and I can weld 1/2" plate to it
