Want a BEEFIER Stance

Looking for some input. I don't care to have a big lift on my truck, but I would like a more beefy stance. Perhaps a 2-3" lift. I think that a leveling kit and bigger tires would do the trick. Any thoughts on a good leveling kit and what would be a good tire size to go along w/ it. Any other ideas other than a leveling kit? Any and all input welcome.

Well if you like the way your truck sits and lifting it really isn't an issue to you than I would not get a lift and take that money and put more toward a real clean set of wheels and tires, I would go with anything KMC and BFG all terrains or Nitto terra grappler, what color is your truck, because they have a new finish of bronze to go along with the the chrome and flat black. Any no matter what wheel you go with a I would go at least 10in wide for the beefy look.....just my and by the way to the site if I didn't say it before

OWTCAST, Yes, that looks about right. I've got the same color truck too I believe, Shadow Gray, w/ black trim on bottom.

I put a 3" leveling kit on it, 18"x10" wheels with 325x60R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers and it put the truck right at level. I still pull a fairly heavy race trailer so I didn't want to go any higher. And, it still drives like a stock truck.

It's a Trailmaster kit (# F2507)I bought from a friend for $100. But honestly, it doesn't come complete if you ask me. I had to figure out what trac-arm bracket to use to make it drive perfect. The one that came with it was junk. I ended up going to a friends 4wd shop and trying on a few before I got the right one. That wasn't so bad since I had a friend willing to do that. On a positive note, it retains the stock leaf springs so it is as soft riding as stock. Let me see if I can get that trac-arm bracket part no. for you too if you are interested.
