What leveling kit?

I'm now in the market for a leveling kit and I'm hoping to get some feedback. I had a DR leveling kit on order but things didn't work out and plus they just went through a bunch of changes...from what I've read. Is DR's product still as good as before or would most recommend staying away from Icon - then new company name. I'm definitely not set on DR but it's supposed to be a good ride.

I had mentioned a leveling kit in another thread but I decided to start a new one to be more specific about the mod and any recommendations I might receive. Thanks in advance.

Sky manufacturing makes a good kit. A new hanger and shackle. You keep you stock spring for a better ride.

I don't think that's going to work on an 05. I have the rough country 3" kit and it's ok but if I could do it again I would get a 4" lift.

The ride should be the same as stock. It's just new brackets to use the existing springs.

I guess I should have read a bit closer. The Sky level kit is easy to put on and rides the same as stock.

I just bought a skyjacker 2.5 leveling kit from a member from the .org I have talked to a lot of people that run them and they like they very much, New coils shocks all around and a add a leaf in the back.

Thanks for all the replies. It seems Skyjacker is the popular one but does anyone have an opinion os DR 2.5" leveling kit? I heard it's supposed to be a better then stock ride. Just trying to weigh my options.

From what I understand DR is no more and are now operating as Icon. I do not believe products are available yet though.
