Because people are plowing with their daily driver....? They can only have one truck, so they want it to be a nice one. Pretty simple.

I plow with a regular cab beater but I see the appeal. Personally I don't want limbs hitting the truck or the danger of crunching up a nice truck if I skid in to something (or something skids into me) but some people don't care.

If you plow roads or parking lots there's also less risks to the truck.

Well I'm finally replying back. Even with the 6000lb springs in the front of the truck, it still sits 2.5" lower. So my 2.5" leveling kit should do the trick. Just for the info.

If the front is 2.5" lower than the back, and you add 2.5" of lift, you realize the truck will looked sacked out right?

Nope, according to my math, it will be level.

I do have a set of 35" tires and 20" wheels to go with the truck also.

Math is great, I'm telling you that it will appear sacked to the eye.

Help me understand what you are trying to say. If the truck sits 2.5" lower in the front and I add a leveling kit, wouldn't that level my truck? No different than the black Superduty posted by Brown1 with 2.5 carli springs. What do you mean by sacked?

That the ass will look lower than the front. Technically level and visually level are two different things.

You want 3/4 to 1" of rake to make the truck appear level to the eye

Ok, my apologies. Honestly didn't know what "sacked " meant. I'm going to dig in and try it. Thank you sir!
