    Yeah personally I like the truck leveled but like brunes said, do what you like, it's your truck. So you didn't do anything to the rear? Also, what did you use to level the front?

    Yea a 3 inch is not a leveling kit. Its a front lift. A leveling kit consists of a 2.5" spacer up front. Thats what I got and its perfectly level. But that looks good anyways.:thumbsup:

    That looks good man! But Its up to you what you want to do. Personally I would maybe raise the back maybe a inch and that would look good...

    It looks a little high in the front to me, too. Personally, I like the level look; but, do what you like.

    BTW, what headlights did put in?
