So I have been pondering a lift for some time now and I now that carli is one of the best. I would like to get the carli level kit to get some added space up front for larger tires but I like the factory nose down stance. So my question is what size block would i need to keep the factory stance? I know the level kit says it raises the front 3 inches but I would like to know the real world lift you guys have experienced from this kit. I have been pondering the starter kit but I dont really need the back to flex that much in my "off roading" environment. I would be a total waste to buy the starter kit and throw the rear leafs with my overload spring or would i get a little more payload capacity. Thanks guys I know its a weird question but I appreciate your help.

An inch or 1 1/2 should work good.

You can throw a block on the rear or you can get the Carli mini packs and use your stock spacers to get the rear ride height you want. I ran the minis and 3 spacers with my 5'' lift. The leveling kit is great but I'm a firm beliver that the rear should be addressed too for a more balanced system.

:agree2:
Depending on how many rear spacers are in your leaf pack(2 or 3) you can just leave them all in when you install the mini-pack and get a little rake to it.

You don't need to go off road to take advantage of the mini-pack.:thumbsup:

I left all three spacers in mine with the mini pack and the truck sets fairly level, but I do have a tool box in the back. It rides so much better with the mini packs than it did before, and with the 35's it really doesn't look "lifted", the tires just look like they are the right size for the truck. My son has a level kit with 35's and didn't change the rear at all, and it doesn't look a whole lot different than my truck with the starter system. (mine just rides much better)

I just put the Starter on and it is awesome. Completely different truck on and off road. I was hauling azz on some big whoops in the washes out here in Az an it didn't bottom out at all. Not sure about any flex and I read that the payload would be the same as stock with the Starter.
