2" Maxtrac's level
275/70/18 BFG AT
2013 XLT 5.0 screw 4x4

I was looking to do fox 2.0's but went the more economical route and the ride is good on and offroad (like stock) but the look is more aggressive. I like it.

What size tires are you running

I'm sure this is a repeat but I see the majority of the trucks using a 2.0-2.5" spacer to level the front then some times I see where members are using as much as a 3" block for the rear??

The rear blocks is the main reason for this to reduce rake when pulling a heavy load? Or is it to gain overall height? Or is it give the truck a more even levelness?

I used spacers for the front on my old 09 and it seemed to be just right! I now own a new 14 and I'm headed down this road against but in a limited budget...

I rarely will trailer anything but since my truck is paid for I'll keep her for awhile ....
Thoughts??

I decided to go with the AS 2" powder coated spacers . Once they arrive I'll seek an installer... I'm just not sure I want to tackle this with jacks in my garage!

You did fine. Tons of guys are running that spacer.

the reason for the 3" block is to gain a small height increase. It is not actually a 3" lift, it replaces the factory 1.25" block resulting in about 1.75" lift.

This allows the guys that install a 2.5" lift in front to gain clearance and still have a little bit of rake.

If you do not want to fuss with the back, a 1.5" leaves a tiny bit of rake, the 2.0" gets you pretty level, and the 2.5 is slightly over level.
