You'll have no suspension droop and your truck will ride really poorly.

Rather than having a wheel drop into a pot hole, the whole corner of your truck will drop because the lower control arm won't be able to drop any more than it already is at ride height.

So lifting the front end by cranking up the adjustable coilovers to bring the truck up is a bad idea? The reason is because i just want to level the truck up with out adding more stuff to it.
