I started with a leveling kit on my 06 with 33's, then went to rancho 4" with 35's, then 11" CST with 40's, now I'm at 18" with a FTS and 46's. It's an addiction I tell you.

Cognito Leveling kit (at least Stage 6, which I have) claims 28% more travel. With the Fox shocks my '12 2500 truck at 100K miles rides smoother than the stock height & stock worn out shocks, as in smooth. My truck was 3" lower in front (hub to fender). I raised it 2 3/4" for a visually level truck. I did diff drop spacers also.
Stock tires here yet, but probably just bumping up to 275/70-18" (33.4") for just a beefier stock look.

I think many say to jump to the big lifts so you can join in with the 'sky junk' look. Mild is ok too!

You can always go with UCA's and shock spacers for the factory shocks to see how you like it, They will work with a lift if you end up going that route . Or if you end up liking the level once on.., you can get the correct length shocks, and remove one set of shock extenders and have the full travel

I must admit with the leveling kit (stock height in the rear), my truck still looks very stock. So if you want that pumped up look a 4" lift might suit you more.
I did take the front lip/dam piece off for the more clearance look.

Well, he definitely has a lift kit installed. You can see the torsion bars dropped.
