    Hey guys so I looked for a while in various threads but there's not a clear answer. What size tires can I fit with a 2.25" leveling kit? Stock " holey" chrome rims, 4x4,ext cab. Would a 2.5" coil over shock be a better option rather than blocks? Tires will be nitto trail grapplers, or possibly mickey Thompson atz or mtz ,but really liking the trail grappler reviews.
    Thanks a bunch guys, hoping to get this done next week before the snow hits.

    year and model? You can fit up to a 285/70/17 with the leveling kit installed.

    Alright, so lots of room for 33/12.5/17 then? I'm confirming what brand the kit is today, would adding a 2" block to the rear to keep the rake effect the clearance?

    No! If you call ready lift, they will answer all of your concerns for free.

    the blocks will keep it close to the factory rake, yes.

    Yeah that's what I'm going for, basically 2" lift all around. I'm fine with it being slightly leveled but I don't want to look like I'm towing a bulldozer when I hook up one of my boats or load up with fire wood. So, 2.25" in the front and take out the 1" factory blocks in the rear and put in 3". Sound about right? Now he offers a 2.25" block for the level kit for $270, and a 2.5" coil over for $350,would the coil over be the better option? As it's a suspension lift and not just a block? I was thinking of just doing the level now and then the rear blocks and possibly blistiens all around in the spring.

    the strut spacer is the ONLY way for you to lift the front of your truck without spending a tone of money. Blocks of same quality can be purchased at your local parts house for $50...
