What leveling kit?

So i just bought myself a nice new to me 2004 F250 Lariat FX4.

I was a bit disappointment to find out the fx4 'ranchos' are not really rancho shocks at all.

What leveling kits have you guys used in the past? what ones do you recommend?

To keep it simple, the Icon mini pack is nice. Should get an adjustable tracbar to keep everything centered. If your springs are original you might want to think of getting some X-codes. They will lift the front a bit.

I just installed the Ready Lift and real Rancho 5000's on mine and no complaints so far as far as ride. My alignment on the other hand is an issue but more to the shop I brought it to.

I just installed a 2" BMF leveling kit on my 07 350 king ranch with bilstien 5100 lift shocks what I've noticed is that the front is now a 3/4 of an in taller than the rear nothing more than adding a little more air in the rear tires all in all I'm extremely happy with my kit and highly recomend it!
