Here's mine with 33's on 18's with my old ProComp leveling kit. I've since upgraded to an Icon leveling kit and it rides much better. Either way, I would have cleared 35's...

Absolutely! The ProComp leveling kit was just a spacer and didn't ride so good. It was cheap and did the job, but the Icon has progressive-rate springs and it rides SOOO much better.

What year is your truck? The leveling kit and ride quality are different on 05+ trucks. If you have 04 or older the leveling kit is a spring pack vs a new coil spring on the 05+

So yea it doesnt really matter what brand you go with to level it cause the shocks stay the same and all the spring packs are about the same. As far as leaf or shackle dont know which is better?

you can run 33s without a lift or leveling kit.

35s will fit alright with a good leveling kit. dont buy cheap though. the ride quality will improve alot with some real decent shocks on it. my 03 rode rough when i first got it and its alot better now
