thinking of lowering ???

so i have made up my mind and i dont want a lifted truck ,,,,there all over the pace here in GA
so i was thinking of lowing it BUT i am 6'2 and dont feel like crawing in and out
........so a leveling kit i think would be best but i dont know any thing about them
would would look best? making the truck level with the front ?
OR level with the back???

NEED YOUR VOTE

and input on leveling kits ,

you dont know what meow is? sad... lol

duh the front can be raised. your coilsprung right?

BUT, if you raise the front to be level with the back, its gonna look goofy becuase im sure youve got street tires, wich will look even smaller. so if you lower the back, itll even out and you wont have a huge gap in the wheel well
