Help me decide - stock or leveled?

Well I have to say, I am loving the truck back down at a usable height. I'm trying to decide if I should just leave it stock with a nice set of 33's or leveling kit w/33's or maybe 35's.

Pics if any of the above combo's on 05-07 trucks would be great!! Here's how it sits now:

I know what you mean by liking it lower. I had a 06 Dodge before this truck with a 15" lift. It just wasn't usable anymore. Thats why with this truck I only went 4.5" and honestly I think its the perfect height. Trucks still useful and looks good. But if your only talking about leaving it stock or with a leveling kit, I would pick to level it.

What are you doing for wheels? I still have my stock HD wheels if your looking for a stock look.

4.5" of lift is ideal.

I agree with 4.5" but of the choices you gave us I vote leveled.

i say 2.5" leveling kit with F350 blocks and 35's. However i loved your truck with the ICON 4.5 and 35's.
I'm going to start with the leveling kit and blocks for now, i'm sure i'll end up with the ICON 4.5" down the road though.
