2012 leveling kit question

Hey guys,
new to the forum and Ford trucks altogether. Long-time GMC owner (still have one), but I made the big switch! My first Ford, and I love it so far. 2012 6.7 F250. I ordered a set of 20x9 BMF novacanes wrapped in 35x12.50 Toyo MT's. I spoke with a guy at rimzone.com, and he told me that the set would fit with a leveling kit. I have a rough country 2" leveling kit that will be here tomorrow, and plan on installing everything as soon as it gets here. However, everything I'm reading on this site tells me that it won't fit! I'm a little worried about this. Does anyone have some info that can tell me one way or another! Thanks in advance!

After everything was installed how did it turn out, do you have any rubbing anywhere on the front tires? I am thinking of going with the same setup and would like to know before i bite the bullet. Thanks

Leveling kit

Sorry for the late reply. Been all over during the holidays. Leveling kit with 35s and 20s no problems whatsoever. However I am adding a leaf in the rear to make the truck level. It sits higher in the front with this kit and I do a lot of towing so I need it level at least or higher in the rear to compensate for the boats I haul. The main reason I installed the leveler was to run 35s. Not because the truck didn't sit right.
