    I agree, but IMO a 2" lift is virtually un-noticeable. Spend money on mods that actually make the truck look good.

    The chrome wheel well arches on the OP's truck really popped, you notice them. I seriously doubt that anyone is going to notice a 2" lift in the front unless they are told that the truck has a 2" lift.

    It all depends on what you want to do with your truck... that 2"-2.5" lift may just be enough to clear larger tires without a full on lift costing thousands. I myself like the larger tires... but do not really care for a full lift. I'm getting to old to climb into a truck... and like the fact that I can still get it in the local automated carwash... especially in the winter....))

    The other thing to remember is that the truck's owner will know he has a 2" level in the front and that may be all that matters. Who cares what other think or notice?

    @jeffsZ71 what tires do you have on your truck? The make/model?

    i can almost always tell when someone leveled a truck. especially when one thats leveled is parked next to one thats not.

    i think it looks great!

    Once again the OP was asking for OPINIONS, I gave him my opinion. If my disagrees with others, oh well, feel free to ignore them.

    You are out of your mind. Any truck guy would be able to pick out a leveled truck over a stock truck a mile down the road. And give it up about the suspension parts wearing. Have you ever owend a leveled or lifted truck? What are you basing your opinions on?
