Can I Go Any Higher?

Hey Powerstroke Heads!

I've got a 2006 F250 Powerstroke. I've currently got a Fabtech 6" suspension lift on my truck. It is only a 2WD and I hear that's about as high as I can get. It there anything higher I can get, or is there anything I can add to the Fabtech lift to get it a bit higher?

I wouldn't mind trying to run 37" Toyo M/T's if I had the clearance. Any input would be great! Thanks guys!

Haha, well I don't think I'll be going quite that high, but I'm glad to hear I can go a bit higher. What are my options as far going about another 2 inches more up?

And what would the estimated cost be? Hopefully it's nothing too out of the park.

man i would have to call and find out... noone that i know has a bolt on kit for a 2wd above 6" so your still looking at a custom kit... which usually means a lot of $$$$ if you only wanted to go up 2" it prob wouldn't be worth it because for a lil more you could prob go up a lot higher.... your prob still lookin at a full front axle conversion to be safe with a custom 4 Link system..... im guessing over 5k

A body lift may be your cheap solution if ya just want 2 more inches. I'm just not much on them myself. 37" tire will only give ya an extra inch though. Them shoes are already lookin good. Any bigger is gonna require some trimmin

Yeah, I love the way it looks, and thanks for the compliment! I thought I'd just ask and see what was available. 5K can be put to a better use for my truck! But thanks for the input and I promise I won't let the .org down!!

You have to find someone willing to bend the I-beams, then you have to have custom 2WD coil springs made and get 5" blocks. Mine is getting this done as we speak. Forget body lift unless you can find somebody willing to deal with the intercooler.
