2 1/2 up front and 2'' in the rear or 3" in the rear

Hey Ive got a 2 1/2 leveling kit and a 1'' block + the stock one. Im wanting to get the factory rake back for towing. What do yall think I should go with. What ever I decide to do Im going to get one solid block so I guess I should be asking if I should go with a 4'' block or a 5" block. If anyone has any pics of a leveling kit upfront and whatever blocks you have in the rear if you could post them I would sure appreciate it. Here is a pic of my truck as it sits now and it seems that it sits alittle higher in the front even with the 1'' block ontop of the factory in the rear.

I think when I had it figured out for mine it was a 5 inch block but I went and bout some 100 dollar add a leafs and it leveled it out and supposedly increased towing capacity

I dont know man i think your truck sits pretty level right now but i've seen pics with your big red flat bed and it squats it pretty good. I think either go with 2" of block that will put you at f-350 height with leveling kit then you wont squat as much. Or stick with the 1" and get air bags or something.

5 inch blocks will level a 4.5 kit. I would suggest if you want to be higher in the back just go with the 4 inch.

i was thinking about it last night and i think you should get a 5inch block. every f-250 i have seen with a leveling kit doesnt look right for some reason. You still need a little rake i think for towing.

After my 2.5" kit, I went with add-a-leafs and 1" worth of shims.

Forget blocks man. Do it right and put add-a-leafs in or get a 4" or 6" spring pack and take the block out all together.

I have a 3.5" block I made myself with traction bars and a 2" add-a-leaf I just put in last night. It was a ***** but I helped a friend put a different style on that went on the very bottom and it was sooooooo much easier and actually lifted the truck more as advertised... mine really only lifted it 1".

I'm going to get the same ones he got and probably go back to a stock 2" block.

The truck is setting nose high. YOu can get a 3" or 4" form the ford. Mine has a 4" in it form he factory. I would try the 4" and cut it down as needed rather than start small and buy more blocks.
