Truck sets level???

Am I the only one who has a 250 that sets exactly level??? Sometimes it even looks a little low in the back. I bought the truck used, and have looked, there are no mods to the front end. I hate that everytime I put a load on it, my headlights aim for the moon. I would like to put a 2.5" lift on it, but all the ones I find are a "leveling kit" for the front end. HELP!!!!!

A little different from your situation but I just put a full replacement front grill guard/bumper on my truck. I was expecting a major sagging in the front. I have seen numerous 08-10 f250/350s with full replacements that look like they want to drag the ground in the front. My front end dropped 1/4" total with the install, I cant even see a difference. The ranch hand weighs 289 pounds and the stock bumper weighs 61 pounds. So I added 228 pounds to my front end. I was impressed though to have my truck not have the nose down on the road like a coon hound smelling the ground.

Do you have the snow plow prep option package?? My DRW truck sits a little rear high but a friend of mines F-250 sits level, we figured it was due to him having the snow plow package and me not.

Well my truck was ordered for a texas dealership and I bought it used but still, I dont think the snow plow prep package is needed for a texas truck. I didnt see anything on the original sticker mentioning a snow plow prep package though.

What all comes with the snow plow prep pack?

as far as i know all the 250's sit pretty much level. If you get a leveling kit you will need taller rear blocks.

I have the front level spacer and rear block from ready lift. Looks level from the side, but almost rear squat in the back.
