    I need advice on leveling a 2017+ f250. I get mixed results from
    Searches.

    I sure as hell don’t want to look remotely front end high so I think 2.5” is too much. With a 2” I see mixed packages, some upgrading to the fox shocks and other only using the puck looking things. Is there a brand that’s really above the rest as far as quality? Will it make my front axle off center?

    Just looking for some experience.

    Not sure about the F250 but on my F150 I have Billstein 5100’s and the ride is awesome, love the look of the level.

    I have leveled/lifted many 17 and newer super duty’s. If your going 2in I would just do the puck under the spring perch. You will not need to change shocks or track bar drop bracket or anything w just a 2 in. You can install yourself also. And that route is $40 or less if you just go on eBay and buy the kit, 2 pucks, 2 lengthened bolts that’s all. I have also had people spend the $400 plus for new springs and shocks in the front which is a nice kit I’m not saying anything bad about that but honestly your doing the same thing. And if you like the ride of your truck now it’s not going to change at all with just the 2in pucks. It’s a good way to save over $300-350 bucks and have the same results/ride quality.

    Katzkins are authorized dealer installed. And it usually runs 1-1.2k for install.

    It’s not just a cover, it actually replaces the current fabric. It’s badass.

    My shocks/struts are still fine and not planning to keep the truck for toooo much longer so I did the 2" puck on top on my F150 and zero complaints. It doesn't mess with ride quality or anything and it was dirt cheap.

    My first truck was an 01 Lightning that I bought in 04 but don’t have any pictures of. Since then there’s been a handful more.

    2007 6.0L F-250 Outlaw. Traded the Lightning for this truck in 07 and yes at one time Rockstars were cool.

    Next was a 2012 Raptor but no pictures.

    After the Raptor was this 2015 Ram 2500. Reverse level, 467.7 turbo, supporting mods
    929baee42ca47478bd61579cee1fb61b.jpg

    Then a 2018 L5P GMC Sierra 2500. Drop shackles, traction bars, 24” Forces, Banks Derringer. This was a quick truck for very few mods but lack of ability to tune killed it for me.

    And finally my favorite out of all of them, my current truck. 2018 Ram 2500. Reverse level, 468 turbo, Steed Speed manifold, 24” Forces. This thing moves and is only going to get quicker.

    @Roush9703 great taste in trucks, love the variety.

    Is that 18 RAM an auto? How's the trans in the new HD Cummins trucks? Will it hold up long term to the power you're putting down with a turbo and tune?

    Thank you. Yes the 18’ Ram and 15’ Ram are/were both autos with the 68rfe. 68’s get a bad name because for the most part they suck. They’re a weird transmission, they up shift and downshift strangely, they’re clunky and really just an uncomfortable transmission. That said with good trans tuning, firmer shifts, adjusted shift points, etc they can live for quite a while with a decent amount of power as long as you stay away from boosted launches and hard driving.

    Not mine but my fathers I recently installed a 2" leveling kit and swapped on some F150 Platinum 20s.
    Has a MBRP 4" catback and a JLT catch can but otherwise stock. Trying to talk him into a 5Star tuning Ngauge setup for its 3.5 Ecoboost. We're not but about a hour from their shop.
