Default Leveling Kits

Does anyone have any experience with Topguncustomz leveling kits? Planning on putting a 2" on my 2010 SCREW.

Pretty much all leveling kits are the same, unless you get a coil space, but try to stay away fom those because they will stiffen the ride...do you have a 2wd or 4wd?

I have a 4WD. I want to go with bigger tires also. I'd like to go with about 33s, but not sure what size that is in metrics!

Ok, then I would get a 2.5" leveling kit, I ran a 3" with a 1" block in the rear and had 35's... But it doesn't matter about metric, you can buy a 33/11.50 if it makes it easier to order

I have a basic 2" leveling kit on my truck, no need to touch the rear end, as the truck is perfectly level, front and rear, with the 2" kit.

I am running 35's: TOYO Open Country AT LT285 75R18 129S E10.

They fit perfectly with no rubbing or other contact with body parts, and while using the factory chrome wheels. I have had no negative issues whatsoever with this set up.


See my writeup and photos on page #5 of the Tire and Wheel Fitment Guide at the top of the forum page.

Great info! Thanks for directing me there. I have 17" wheels. Would I go with 285/75/17 to achieve 35" tires? Or how would I get there? I'd love to go that big and it sounds like you haven't had any problems.

325/70/17=35" in a Nitto Terra Grappler. Most tire web pages will give you the tire specs.

I have never researched tires for 17" wheels, as my truck came with the 18's; however, if my math serves me correct, a 285/75/17 will be smaller in diameter than the 285/75/18.

For me, the size was perfect, in that while I gained the height, I did not have to go out too wide, wherein a lot of the rubbing issues come into play.

Default Topguncustomz leveling kit

I have the TOPGUNCUSTOMZ leveling kit on my 2010 FX4 Supercrew. I love it, didn't affect ride quality at all. I had them install it.
