    I'm really new to the truck scene, I want my truck to have a little more aggressive look. I figure a leveling kit should do the trick, but I don't know which is the best and what size to go with?

    There really aren't any "best" leveling kits. All circular pices of metal are created equal in my mind.

    For the price of a leveling kit you could get bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks for the front and an add-a-leaf for the back. That's a much higher quality lift.

    If you're looking to just level the front with the rear, go with the Bilstein 5100's. That's what I did. Love the new look. Also like that if I want to go for a bigger lift in the future, I just have to do an AAL in the back and jack up the Bilsteins in the front. Here are some before and after pics of mine. Did it about a week ago. My driveway slants a little upward so the second pic looks like the front is higher than the rear but it's not. It's actually about 3/8" lower.
