    so just asked about getting a leveling kit and got some good info. But this is what i am thinking now. I found that i could get anywhere for a 2-6" inch spacer for the front. My idea would be to do a 3 or 4" spacer in the front and then a 2" block in the rear? Would this work or would it screw with the drivetrain. I know it will each up u-joints more often, but anything else I should be aware of? I'd put new shocks in too.
    If u have done this, could u post some pics. Mine will be going on a 2005 3/4 ton

    Thanks in advance!

    two things... you have any pictures of your truck? wondering what mine would look like with the 2" on it.

    also, saw in another thread that you stated your fuel milage went down. It went down with this updgrade?

    3-4" will be too much for your other stock suspension parts. You'll need drop brackets, longer shocks, etc....2-2.5" max with stock components.

    Has anyone had issues with the front ends bottoming out with the blades on?? My 06 2500 has been doing more and more frequently, so much that I am thinking of putting a set of supercoils on the truck. Sure looked good on the 2nd gen Dodge on a post in the recent past. Has anyone used them on a 3rd gen??

    My only fear is going too high for the 5th wheel trailer. Hate to have the truck sit nice and the trailer at an angle...
