Leveling Kits?

I've got an 05 F250 4WD Lariat on the stock 17's right now. This guy I go to college with was admiring my truck (meanwhile Im drooling over his) and he has a 2" leveling kit he was saying. It only cost him $150 and did it DIY. This is the kit:

Ford Leveling Suspension Lift Kit

Im interested in doing it to my truck but have no experience with lifts etc... as far as Ive gone so far I have an exhaust . My main concern is I plow snow in the winters at home and I know lift kits cause issues with plows tripping... would this be the case with leveling too? and if anyone has an 05-07 with a "kit" like this please feel free to add your comment and a photo!


"Why do people go to a diesel truck video to complain about pollution. That's like yelling at somebody throwing a quarter in a wishing fountain, "YOU COULD'VE FED A BOY IN AFRICA!"

No torsion bars because its a solid front axle... that's only possible on trucks with independent front suspension like chevys and half ton trucks
