I have no experience with Leveing Kits. I know that most just bring the front up to meet the back, in that case the back would be sitting low. Youd be better off just going 6in at that point. And if it is a front and back level then you would have to stack blocks in the rear and I understand thats a no no. Just my thoughts. Maybe someone with more experience will chime in.

*drool* I've wanted the 4in Rancho lift since I first saw [MENTION=12340]Desert Dawg[/MENTION] 09 FX4. If I had unlimited money I'd put one on my truck in a heartbeat, but alas funds are more pertinent elsewhere for me right now. Good looking truck and thanks for the pics

I just want a front level and I do want the truck to sit higher in the front

Truck looks great! Quick question what offset are your rims?

Measuring from center of the hub to the fender before and after my Rancho 4" install, I'm actually showing the Rancho netted 5" of lift. This makes sense to me as I was having a hard time seeing a significant difference between the 4" and 6" pictures with 35s on this forum.

Nice looking truck, brhea21. I'd have a 4" lift now, if 35" tires weren't so effin' expensive.
