Default Looking at Leveling an '05 4x4

Any leveling kit recommendations? I want something that looks nice on the truck, affordable, and won't destroy my front end. I want a little more clearance when I go off road.

Right now I have 265/70/16 All Terrains on there. They don't rub, but the gap is less than my fingers width.

2" max with the 4x4 but you will still stress the front end to premature failure, especially if you flex off road. Not much choice, so recommendations are limited. Aluminum or rubber spacers. Add-a leaf or blocks for the back. Body lift might suit you better.

I went with these over a year ago with no problems so far... but most parts were replaced when these were installed so ymmv .

With that being said, I also went up to 275 ATs which still rub when I turn.
