Default Looking for TRUCK LEVELING ADVICE!

traded my 2006 diesel for a 15' f150 crew. was tired of the really tall lift, & endless 6.0 issues. having a bit of buyers remorse cuz it looks like an old man truck. would like to level it & increase tire size but don't want any issues with noises, rubbing, bottoming out, just good looking stance and reliability. What's the best setup? thanks

easy fix is a 2" level with 33-35 inch tires on stock rims, if aftermarket rims thats when you need to watch the offset. i have the stock chrome 20's with 275/60 bfg k02's, it's nice middle of the road size thats not crazy in price. you can go 285/65 on stock wheels without any problems, but i chose not to for price. i feel your pain on the 6.0, been there done that

I have factory 18" wheels, I wonder what that size that would translate to

If you go to the BFG website they will have all the sizes including tire weight listed. Just remember the factory 18 inch wheels are 7.5 inch wide with 34mm inset and the factory 20's are 8.5 inch wide with 44mm inset. Hope this helps!

Hunter, that last picture has the 2" level in it? looks like it could go quite a bit more before its close to being level.

2.5 inch rough country with 1 inch block in the rear. Tires are 295/60/20. Sits absolutely perfect in my opinion.

Yeah, the angle of the camera makes it look bad, it isnt perfectly level either, you have to go 2.5" and mess with the rear blocks to get an actual level. I haul stuff a lot so I dont want my back end sitting lower than the front end. Most leveling kids maintain a little bit of rake.
