10'' lift kit?

i know there are some companies are out there that make great riding kits, but im not really worried about ride. and i would like to spend as little as possible. i have a 2005 and i used a 2'' leveling spacer and an 8'' fabtech lift kit. it worked great and i was just wondring if i could do the same with an 08. i am currently dealing with another org member on buying his thanks guys

You can stretch 8" lifts to 10" lifts....but that is the max height that you can take the stock steering.
Also, it is very critical to have your caster properly set to avoid death wobble issues.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I realize this is an old thread. I just had my '99 F350 stolen two weeks ago. It had a 10" lift. I'm looking at buying an '06 and was wondering what the best and most affordable way would be to do a 10" lift on it. Thanks in advance.

Superlift makes a nice 10"! If it would've been out at the time I got the Rough Country I def would've jumped on that one.
