Help me decide

I've been thinking a lot lately about lowering my truck down some. I really love the look of it but being lifted 8" makes it difficult getting around in it sometimes so just give me some opinions here.

he bought it that way.

And benbou it all depends on what you want and use the truck for. if you use it for work or a DD then dropping it might be better. and i pretty sure you could break even with the sale of your 8"stuff.

Well a 4" on 35's is just about the same proportion as the 8" on 38's. so you will keep the same look just smaller and fits more places and in some carwash's to LOL

My last 08 I had a 4" with 37's and thought it looked perfect as far as height wise but I'm gonna go with 35's if I go down with it.

I understand where you're coming from. I had the same issue with my F-150. I had 8.5" lift with 37's and if I had kept it I was going to drop down and run 35's. I loved how it looked, but like you say; getting around in it can be difficult at times. If you want the truck for looks keep the 8". If you want whats more feasible get the 4.5".

If you do decide to sell the 8" let me know, I may be interested.

IMO those 38's look a little too big for the truck. I say go down to 37's and a 6" lift

08 F250 CC SB - too much to list

You know that was a thought too. My buddy has a 6" lift with 37's and it looks really good so I may go that route. Maybe it's just the picture but in person the 38's really do look perfect with the lift.
