    Mmmmm......and that's a reason NOT to lift your truck??

    A 3/1 level looks great either way 2wd or 4wd. Lifted trucks aren't reserved for 4wd nor are lifted 2wd's reserved for douches

    I was a douche before I lifted my truck LOL

    This is the first full size truck I've owned. Honestly, it's about what YOU need and what YOU like. Screw what other people think. If you want a mall crawler, do it. If you want a rock climber, do it. This is AMERICA!! :oldglory:

    I got a 2wd because there's not a lot of call for 4wd where I live and where I go hunting and fishing. I got a lift and bigger tires because I still do go down trails and hit some mud holes, plus I just like how it looks too. :mudding:

    90% of lifted trucks never see dirt. Go for it.

    It's mostly a jealousy thing... Not lifted trucks look wrong to me.

    Buy some polyester pants at wallmart, pull 'em up to your arm pits. Don some loafers and keep your truck stock, old man style! lol It's a lot cheaper and easier to lift a 2wd IMO.

    Lift it. 3/1 is perfect for a 2WD as well.
