2" Maxtrac's level

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.

if you run a 2.5" level you will be fine because they are stock raptor size

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.

The leveling kit job is stupid easy. You can knock it out in an hour.
