My First Lift !!!!!

Whats up everyone? Hi. My name is Jeff I am new to the Forum and I am also somewhat new to my '06 F 250 FX4 CC Short Box . I love my girl but she is in need of a lift. Everyone I work with has a lift and I can't be driving a mighty midget.

So I was thinking of the FabTech 6" or maybe the RIZE 6". Any and All suggestions are welcome. I am open to what ever ya'll think. Ya'll would know better than I. Like the heading says this is my first lift, as I have never had the funds nor the know how to install one.

Don't know much about the newer trucks. I'm stuck with this ol' one!
I'm sure someone will come along before you know it with all the knowledge!

Welcome Aboard The ORG!!
I also have an '06 Short Bob and love the ride that FabTech has given me!
You pick two gret lifts by the way!
Mine....in my sig......A 6" 4-Link system. I originally went with the standard shocks but DID NOT LIKE!! Do yer self the favor and upgrade shocks from the start. I chose dirt logics 4.0 and what a difference it made!!!! I love the articulation the 4-link offers. It really smooths the ride!

What size tires you lookin at?

Nice Tire Choice!!
I did a lot of research before I purchased some new shoes. Heard a lot of pros with the Toyos and a few cons.........rubber soft and wears a little fast. I chose BFG's due to the luck of the past. Hard to beat IMO!!
Get that lift and post them pics

I have the 6 inch fabtech on my 01 F250. In my opinion its a great lift that offers a great ride. It hasnt let me down on or off road yet.

i have an 04 with a 6" fabtech with the 7.3 leafs in the front for the sag. Its a little heavier leaf package. I love it, just wish i would of gotten the dual springs in the front. maybe later down the line. but for 35's you can run a 4" , a 6" you can run 37's.
