Opinions for this lift.

In the near future, i plan on lifting the truck and adding bigger tires, nothing huge but a little more aggresive look. Im thinking of installing a 2 in leveling kit and adding a leaf. had anyone done this set up? It seems like a pretty simple and inexpensive way to add a couple inches. what do you guys think??

By leveling kit do you mean torsion keys? Or does your truck have coils?

He has coils I am guessing, 2wd. So yeah coils or coil spacers would work for a couple inches.

Spacers in the front to level it out.

Shackles or lift blocks are an inexpensive method to lift the rear.

So together they work well and don't add any serious wear and tear?

What work well? Coils and spacers? No they do the same thing. One or the other. If you meant shackles and coils then yes they work well. One for the front one for the back.
