New truck I need a lift

hey guys i purchased my first diesel

2001 f250 SC shortbed, its in pretty good shape. I was wondering if there are any alternatives to getting a few inches of lift instead of paying six hundred bucks for a kit? any ideas let me know

Yeah with a leveling kit you may be able to get 35's under it. I personally like the lift vs leveling.

Look around.

It is a Rough Country 2" leveling kit (basically addaleaf) I have delt with RC before and if it would ever sag they will replace it. But 2" for $72 bucks aint bad. Search for F-250 leveling kit.

I am considering a leveling kit and they all seem to be around $200-$300. Cant seem to find any add a leaf kits for under $100 as was mentioned. Please provide more info. Thanks
