Default Leveling kit and tire size questions

So, looking to put on a leveling kit to get rid of the dreaded "hot rod" look. Need some info on the best kit, additional parts to replace at the same time, and what size tires I can in increase to afterwards. Keeping the stock chrome 18's for now till I got some more money to dump in. Off road time is limited but would like a more aggressive look. Mostly driven on interstate for now. Thanks for the input!

IMO I would stick with the stock tire size or close to it, the Durango has Terrabad brakes and cant handle the stock tires let a lone bigger tire, i would lvl it out and put on some Gen Grabber AT2 or a similar tire. But if you are driving mostly on HWY i would get some good HT version of a light truck tire they look pretty beefy and they will be better on the MPG. I would look in to the Geolander HTs or something like that.
