Default 2016 F250 w/ snow plow package and leveling kit

Anyone level their superduty with snow plow package? How much lift was used to level?

Try the Rough Country 2" Ford Leveling Spacers. They're cheap, work awesome and are simple to install. With the 1.5" kit, you will get a tiny bit of squat in the front. I will try an dig up a pic of my '11 with the 1.5" kit, it had the prep package.

We use the Rough Country 2" Ford Leveling Spacers. They're cheap, work awesome and are simple to install.

We used the RC 1.5" coil spring upgrade kit they offered and ended up taking them off and just using the spacers with the stock springs instead.
I have a ready lift 2.5 leveling kit sitting in the box but was unsure about putting it on.

Others could say better on the 2.5" kit, but I know that the 2" kit will get you sitting level. IDK how to attach pics otherwise I would.

I was waiting for that! Its not delivered yet but is on its way. Purchased from the south being brought up north. I bought a leveling kit really cheap just because the box was opened, couldn't pass it up. If it wont work, I can always sell it. Was wondering if 2.5" was too much for a truck with snow plow package?

This trend seems to be getting more and more common. Where I work, every year we see less XL/XLT trucks coming in for plows and more Lariat/Platinums. 2-3 years later they will trade them off and swap all the equipment over to the new model. Amazes me, however the demand is so high for the used top trims that dealers will pay top dollar..
