    After measuring out the truck .. seems a 2" level will be just right to get her level .. the 2.5 looked to have a nose up look.
    So ordered a 2" HBS level ..

    My question .. what are you guys running for tires on a leveled FX4

    I want to stay stock width ... just taller , dont want them stuffed. Most likely a AT that is some what aggressive. And I dont want to loose any ride quality .. from reading post ...a 2" level people say it does not affect anything but the looks .

    a 35 will fit on the stock wheels with minimal rubbing, may have to trim a bit off the valence. i'm running 35's on my leveled fx4

    Last Wednesday I installed bilstein 5100 coilovers with 2" lift up front and 5100's shocks on rear. I gained 2-1/4" in front and 1/2" in rear.

    Ride is so much better than stock, corners great, no assend bounce. Truck is very near level with very minor rake. Could not be happier. Did a few months of research on spacers etc before doing it.

    Tires on order and should be in wed/Thursday this week. Ill post pics once up. They are 285/70r17's Fierce Attitudes.

    When I had my 10 FX4 I had a 2.5" leveling kit on before I lifted it with 33's. To me they looked good. Here is a pic of it.
