DRW Lifts...?

Good Evening,

I became a a members a few days ago and have been researching the site for the last couple days. I have a 2008 F350 CC DRW King Ranch (diesel) and I would like to do a 6" - 8" lift in the near future. I have not seen many dually setup in my research so I decided I would ask.

What would you recommend as a complete kit front and rear?

I would like to run 37" tires with 24" rims, I do a lot of driving and the truck does have a plow setup on it.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Mike,

You have an awesome truck! If you don't mind me asking...

How do you like the Fabteck setup?
I have noticed a lot of kits are just for the front, what did you do in the rear?

I hope to eventually do a Spartan setup with stacks. I see you have stacks but have you done any performance mods? If so how did (if at all) did it effect the lift?

Wheel hop?

Thanks You for taking time out to respond to my thread.

Thanks for the compliment. I like the Fabtech lift. It just has blocks in the rear which is fine for me. That way I didnt loose any load capacity by loosing the stock leafs in the rear. I also put a BDS dual front shock kit on it and a dual front steering stabilizer. It had wicked axle wrap as I haul 12k on a regular basis. Scuffy at trucks unlimited in Winston salem NC took care of that problem and made me a custom set of ladder bars. I have studded the motor, done a full egr delete and the cooler had been removed. I am running a custom tuned SCT with an edge insight for guages. heres some more pics. I have 8" stacks

Mike,

Thanks for the information as it is a great starting point for my research. I too do not want to loose any of the load capacity as I sometimes load the truck up due t my business. I am also looking to get a larger trailer for job sites and the Dually would be responsible for transporting it.

From what I have read, ladder bars seem to be an almost necessity for who I want to use and built the truck especially with all the driving i do (about 5k a month).

I just checked out the Fabtech site... (If I can I ask) Did you do the basic, Radius, or Link?

I also have to resolve what kind of modifications I am going to have to do in order to still utilize my 7.5' wide plow...

Here is the one I just sold. 6" Fabtech 4-link on 35" Toyo M/T's with stock rims. Lifting a dually is much the same as a SRW. Biggest difference is that you need wheel spacers out back (size depending on what tire size you run). Fabtech lifts are pretty good for the $$$.
