Anyone with 2.5" leveling kit on 33" tires on a 05-07?

I'd like to see some pics. Thinking about doing a leveling kit and some 35"s but don't plan to buy new tires until my 33" nittos wear down. So id like to see if anyone has any pics.

I only want to see 05-07 trucks, with 2.5" leveling kit, with 33's. Thanks in advance.

I don't like the "stuffed" look

Not long after I first got it a couple of years ago. 295/70 x 17 stockers. Nitto's website shows them to be a tad over 33".

I had some free time today so I pulled the floor jacks and boards out lol. I used and floor jack and a couple of boards under the receiver hitch to lift the rear of the truck by the body. On the front I used a floor jack and a couple of boards to the lift the truck by jacking it by the crash bar under the front bumper. By lifting it like this, it leaves the wheels on the ground and only lifts the body of the truck. That way I can know what it will look like if I run the same wheels and tires with it lifted. Here are some pictures. The road slopes some (and so does the photographer lol) so it doesn't actually squat like it appears in the pictures

This is how the truck sits now. Stock coil springs up front and 2011 Leaf Springs with factory 2" blocks in the rear:



This is with the truck 3" higher in the front and 2" higher in the rear. This makes the truck perfectly level. But like I've mentioned before, when our trucks are "level" they look to me like they are squatting in the rear.





So I added another inch to the rear, making it 3" higher in the front and 3" higher in the rear than when I started (which makes it 1" higher in the rear than it is in the front):







Still looked like it squatting a little in the rear, so I bumped it up another 1/2", making it 3" higher in the front and 3.5" higher in the rear than when I started (about 1.5" higher in the rear than in the front)

Hey man. I bought some stock coil springs from you recently. I have taken a four inch lift off my truck and installed the stock springs with the daystar 2.5" front coil spacer / leveler, and I'm running 35s and they dont look stuffed to me. I still have the 4" lift blocks in the back (have not had time to lower the rear yet) and that makes the rear about 3" higher than the front. I really cant tell it too bad either. I will put up some pics tom since its dark outside now. Also, do you happen to know about how much higher the rear is from the front in stock form? I love the way your truck looks!

Normally a F250 is 2" higher in the rear and come with a 2" block. a F350 is normally almost 4" higher in the rear and comes with a block that is around 3 5/8" tall.

Like the original post stated, I will probably go to 35's eventually, but wanted to run the 33's for now.
