Which Lift to purchase?

I have an 08 f250 that im looking to lift but im not sure what i should do. I dont want anything wild i just want a more aggressive stance. I have 22x10 rims with a -21 backspacing that i am looking to put on 35 inch tires. Im not sure if they will fit without serious rubbing on just a 2 inch leveling kit. What I had in mind was the bds 2 inch level kit with all new bilsteins and 5 blocks in the back getting rid of the 2 inch stock ones. This should make the truck sit about level because right now it sits about an inch higher in the front. Do you think these wheels and tires would fit with the leveling kit or should I save up the extra money and go with the bds 4 inch lift?

You can fit 35s with a 2 inch leveling kit easily but that backspacing might be a little much. I think optimal is about 5-5.75 inch backspace on a 10 inch wheel for a leveling kit.

I would suggest the 4 inch and you could always put a bigger tire with that if you decide you want 37s
