2" or 2.5" lift for front only

I have 34" stock tires and just want to level the front only but everything I read or the kits that I look at seem to have something for the rear also. Is leveling the front only, doable?

All of the leveling kits that I looked at didn't have anything for the rear

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

Go 2.5" since you have the 350. You already have taller blocks in the rear as opposed to the 250.

Thanks. Do you have to change the track bar? Also did you put the taller coils or go with the spacers?

Man thats a good looking truck you got there. What tires are those nitto trail grapplers? are those your first pair cuz I'm wondering what kind of miles you get with those? or have you heard what kind of miles people get with them?
