2014 2500 4x4 ??

Looking to level the truck. Haven't seen much discussion on 2014's. With the 2500's getting the front susp design of the 2013 3500's I assume a spacer kit from an older model will work. I see a few different commonly used ones out there for the 2013+ discussion. Hellbent, rough country, tuff country, revtek etc. Is there a preferred brand and for what reason? I'm guessing a spacer is a spacer.

My goal is to fit an AT around 285/75/18(~34.5x11.5) without rubbing. I noticed the 2014 2500's sit higher than others. I don't want to run into adding a 2" leveling kit and front sitting higher than rear. And with rear now being coils, it isn't as easy as adding a small block spacer to gain desired ride height.

Are the Bilstein 0-2" shocks still Front 24-185776, Rear 24-191203? Shock location changed in the front and now with new rear as well it wouldn't surprise me if these were incorrect.

I pick the truck up Monday. Excited to say the least.

You might look at this one, It's kinda pricey, and it's just 1-1/2" but they say it will more closely level the truck. It has extension brackets so you can safely use the original shocks, for original ride quality.

I don't doubt it. We can fit 35s stock (on stock wheels...changing offsets get tricky) if you're willing to do some plastic trimming. Good luck guys!

37s look like they rub terribly. I do like the stance though.

How can you tell by just looking at one picture?

I actually drove it. I can confirm it does not rub. I am sure if it articulated or hit a big bump while turned to lock it would rub, but I never noticed any.

I assumed due to the 1/2" gap between the tire and front bumper.

You know what happens when you ASSuME.

Dealers being very averse to being sued, it's probably a reasonable assertion that the plastic behind the bumper (which is all that'd be in that area) has been modified appropriately.

Maybe i'll see more in the picture thread in the next month when people start buying more of them. Still pretty new. If anyone has a picture of a 2014 granite crystal ccsb 2500 on 285/75/18 toyo at2's i'd be happy to see. Might even click the like button.

Looks good for just a level kit. How far do the wheels stick out? I figure the offset is around +18? Some side shots would be great.
