Bulldogged Suspension?

I just recently had a leveling kit installed on my 04 f250. Now the front is higher than the back by about 1-1.5 inches. I was going to put a 1 inch block on the rear, but the more I look at it the more I like the "bulldogged" look. Now I'm debating on weather or not to get blocks for the rear end. Does anyone else have there truck like this? any thoughts, opinions?

Thats awesome. I have paid extra to get that look. I think it gives it a pre-runner, ready for anything look. Dont forget to lower your headlight now.

Not a huge fan of that look. You can always swap your 250 blocks with 350 blocks.

If you're looking for honest opinions I think it looks cheap, like someone doesn't want to spend the money to level the rear out. That's just my personal opinion though. If you like it, stick with it.

Its commonly called the Cali lean, it looks fine but when you hook up a trailer stand by to drag your assend. Might want to think about some bags if you leave it.

What's the difference between the 250 and 350 blocks?

Its really up to you. Plus you wont be draging the ground if you hook a trailor to it, just look at my sig. Most of your lifts come with that look. Anyways its up to if you like it or not. And "cheap" look.....I don't see how. So your saying if you don't wear a rolex your cheap watch.....some people don't like the looks....its all about personal opinions. Just like some wants a 4 inch lift or a 14 inch lift. Hopefully you make the decision you want.
