To Lift a 03' 2wd Crew Cab

Alright, a few months ago I picked up an 03 F250 crew cab 2wd. I love the truck, but it looks like it sits so low to the ground. What are my options in lifting it? Im not looking for much, maybe 2-3 inches? How much would it cost to have this done? I appreciate the help, thanks in advance!

well you can buy 2inch coil spacers for the front,about 50 to 100 bucks, FAT BOB'S GARAGE has them for 50 or you can get DAYSTAR'S for abut 100, then put a 2 or 3 inch block in the back

You can go with a 2" leveling kit to bring up the front end.$100. if you want to raise the front and back you probably wanna to go with a 4" - 6" suspension lift. Either Fabtech or Pro-comp for like a $1200-$1400. Not installed.

a leveling kit will only lift it up around 2" after that you will have to go with a 6" lift.. not alot of people doing 4" lift kits for 2wd anymore they are hard to find.... pro-comp and fabtech have some good 2wd lift kits

spacer will run you around 100 bucks... also is your truck raked towards the font if so you will only need the spacer and leave your rear end stock so that it sits level

Looks like I should start with the spacers in the front, it definately rakes foward a bit, is there a particular rason for that? I assume so when you haul and it pulls your back end down your level?? I definately cant afford to put a 6" lift on there, my wife would KILL me. Was thinking 3-4 inches wouldnt be super duper noticable. But I wasnt looking to spend over 700 or so on the whole deal, but it sounds like it will cost well over 700 bucks.

i went with daystars they are just under 100 east to install but then you will need a alignment too.. but that's it no longer shocks or anything it will sit perfectly level.. and i think they look much better that way..

yes the rake is for when you load the bed .. but its too much
