I like the look of the leveling kits, i think their 2.5" front lift kits, the backs stay the same but the whole truck looks taller. One place told me the leveling kits on the f250/350s with the diesel are just a tad taller than the f350 with a gas motor because of the weight.

It all depends on what you will be doing with the truck.

If you are looking to just fit larger tires, then you could get away with an inexpensive lift from say Tough Country... They have a good quality kit for a reasonable price. And good street maners. Or you could cannablize(sp) a couple of spring packs from another truck to get your desired ride height.

Now if you are looking for more capability off-road....then you will get as many opinions as people giving them. If it were me and I was lifting a 99-03 or even earlier model, then without a doubt it would be a Rubicon Express kit with Bilstien shocks. And the list of mods can go on and on and on and on......

spacers

i just ordered the 2.5 inch spacers to level the front . if you have coiles .that will level the truck and look great with the same ride. and your only looking at 150 bucks.
