This is the only leveling kit for this 2wd truck. Ive got the same problem, but Ill probably be using the Daystar just because.

Daystar - Driven by Design

I have talked to one guy who worked with Ford, and said that since its not a solid axle that there might be some issues with the alignment. And you do need longer shocks too. He also said it would probably be easier to drop the rear end, but that eliminates the use of 35's.

Im running 285/75/16 stock height now, but Im hoping that I can fit 315's. I'm actually going to a local shop to talk to about it on Monday since I cant stand the clearance in the front. Ill let you know what he says.

I got the kit from the same auction you have linked at the end of last year. I did have to get an alignment and adjustable camber/caster bushings.

The '08 mirrors are a direct swap except a small alignment pin (I guess thats what its called) has to be removed. Its just a small plastic nub on the back that I cut off with some snips. After that it bolted right up. Since my truck is an XL and has no power I didn't feel like spending the extra money on power ones.

Probably, with a little trimming. May try 35's in another 50,000 miles when these tires are shot.
