Leveling 2WD 2013 Ram 1500

Alright. It seems like every thread I see and every kit I find is for 4WD. I'm extremely new to this, its my first truck, but I really just want to level it out for the look, no other reason, but I can't find anything and I keep reading horror stories about lifting/leveling. From what I understand I only need 1.5" or 2" in the front but I can't find anything for 2WD. I would assume the 4WD kits wouldn't work on 2WD?? I keep seeing spacers but I don't know if that would be safe and last very long.

So, where do I find a kit to do it? and how can I find a shop to install it??

I'm in Texas and I live in the country.....you would think I could have already found the answers to all these questions.......

Any opinions would be great cause I'm so lost at this point.

Usually leveling 2wd consists of lowering the back 2 inches.
Now that the newer trucks have come away from leaf springs, drop Coils will be the answer. Example below:

I was afraid of that. I really don't want to lower the back end though. frustrating. thanks though. I just really wish there was a way to lift the front end instead. I guess I'm keeping it the way it is for now.

I hadn't thought about that cause I've just always wanted to lift it. So I really know nothing about body lifts?

You can run spacers up front for about 1.5-2" lift/level if you get spacers just make sure to buy the aluminum ones the plastic are garbage.

I know Traxda and Fat Bob's Garage have leveling kits for 2wd. Check their website or call them.

the front can be leveled up to 3 inches, theres no cv axles to worry about. measure your fender heights front and back to determine how much you want to go up in the front.some like level i like 1" rake
