Anyone leveled a 250 with stock rims and tires

I'm looking for pics of a Crew cab short bed with a 2.5" leveling kit with 4" blocks on the back on the stock rims and tires (20's for the rims). I'm debating going with the newton 2.5" leveling kit and holding off on the remote start and alarm i had planned. Install looks simple but i have about 80% life left on my tires (well 60% on the rears ). Thanks for any pics fellas.

I may actually do both. I may skip the whole viper system and get a cheaper avital system that used the factory fob... try to find the panic function on the truck and tap into my power folding mirrors. Instead of a 300 dollar alarm/start its an $80 setup and much simpler install. Leaves 200 or so for the level. time to be frugal.

Thanks man. Thats stock size tires? If so thats what i was afraid of. They look small to me in the wheel wells. I may just wait till its time for a new set of tires.

Yeah. Those are the stock 20's and stock 275s. Its a tad small for my taste as well. I was in the market for some 35" nittos but the holidays are here and as usual, I'm supporting the GFs holiday shopping addiction.

I have seen both 35s and 37s with a 2.5" level and both look good to me. I prefer a little space and not so much a beefy/stuffed look with the 37s.

Not Necessarily. 4" blocks in the back still give you a little rake. There is about a 1/2" difference between the front and back on mine. I believe the OEM blocks in the back are 1-7/8" to 2" so measure yours, do the math and figure out how much rake you want, if any at all.
