Looking to lift up the front and rear...

Hey everybody,

Bought a truck from down south, 250 4x4, and don't like the stance at all. 99% of the trucks around me all have the plow package which Im pretty sure has the xcodes, which makes them sit quite a bit higher than mine out front. I'd like to lift the front to at least plow pack height and throw some 350 blocks in the rear. Not planning on putting bigger tires on until after winter/when these wear out, so I don't want a big lift yet. I'm fine with a slight rake, just sick of being lower than everybody. If I wanted to sit this low, I never would've passed my 4.0 ranger to my sister.... thanks in advance guys.

I just put a 4 inch lift on last week. I really like it but if your not wanting tires I wouldnt do it. My advice is wait until you are getting new tires and put a lift and bigger tires.
