Default LIft or level

I am looking to either level or lift my 1500 Laramie. I can't figure out which would accomplish what I want, or get a visual of a before and after image in my mind. I only want a few inches and don't want to create really rough ride. Yet high enough to look good. Any recommendations.

You want a few inches for what?

What are your reasons for a lift/level?

Bigger wheels/tires? appearance? clearance? off-roading?

Can you provide more specific details?

Looking for 2-3 inches, Appearance is art of the package. I am looking for ground clearance for bad weather and such. I probably will get 33 or 35's. I had a tundra I had a 7" BDS lift and 37" Trail Grapplers on. It also had the offroad package too. So I don't want anything that high

Sounds like a level is what you want rather than a body lift.

Have a look at my sig for the path I chose to go with. My selection of wheels/tires may not be your cup-o-tea but the method I used to level my truck is very popular on these boards and is quite the favorite.

I'm sure some others will chime in and give you alternative routes.

Good luck.
