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.

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.

04 6.0 crew cab short bed
6" fabtech
37x13.50x17 toyo mt's
Bullydog w/outlook monitor
FBD 4" straight pipe
S & B intake
