Cut 2.5” thick wood blocks and put them under the front tires. Then take a step back and you will know what it looks like and measures out to be. Pretty cheap look ahead.

What I do is put a floor jack under the frame horn and jack it up. That way you get the correct fender gap, which also changes your eyes perception of level.

As sootie already stated. It's about fender gap. Driving it up on blocks might make the truck level but it wont look level to the eye . The gaps have to be equal or it just looks wrong. Tape measure goes a long way.

That black platinum is also a 350 so it has 1.5" more block in the rear. When you do a 2.5" level on a 250 most add a 350 block to the rear.

Amazes me, however the demand is so high for the used top trims that dealers will pay top dollar..
My first Ford, 1996 F250 XL standard cab, came with a Meyer plow from the dealer.
No heated mirrors, rear windshield defrost, captain's seats or heated seats back then. I started with driveways but people were a PITA. I moved to commercial work then. My truck had a bench seat that wore out from all the time plowing behind the wheel. It didn't do my back any favors. But Obviously even the top of the line models didn't have what comes standard now with the XL and XLT models.

I plan on adding a plow to my truck but just for personal use. So I would have loved to have had heated mirrors and rear windshield defrost At the minimum in those lake effect storms. But at the end of the day, my Lariat is still a truck and I'm not afraid to use it as such.
