Well you have alot of options. My truck has a 6" Fabtech Radius Arm system with 20" KMC Monsters and 37" Toyo MTs. I would have love to do a 8" or 10" but then getting it in my garage is a problem and actually using the bed regularly would be a pain in the ***. I have a tough time getting my dirt bike in it now. Also, what's your budget? How do you plan on using the truck? These are questions that will help steer you in the right direction.




**Sold** 2008 F350 PSD CC SB Lariat - 8" Fabtech Radius Arm kit, OUO Traction Blocks, Icon Remote Res shocks, Icon dual stabilizer, 20" BMFs on 38x15.5 Toyo MTs, Spartan 275, S&B CAI, Flo-Pro exhaust, RBP Grille, N-Fab steps, CRE Rocker Flares, Recon mirror and tails, projectors with 6K HID, Alpine IVA-W505 DVD with Sirius and cam, Alpine 5x7s, Fosgate amp and 10" sub

Thats a good looking truck, and you are right theres a ton of options, even many that are not "kits" like mine for instance.

And your also right...much more than 6" and 37's and they get hard to work out of. I work mine every day...and getting stuff in and out of the bed is hard....I had to buy a $300 10" adjustable hitch to tow my lowboy trailers....and I cant even load my 4 wheeler up in the bed now...the ramp is not long enough..so trailer everywhere....

On a 2008 SD you can run up to 37s under a 6" and 38s under an 8". Here are a couple of examples:

Rize 6" Radius Arm kit on 37s


Rize 8" 4-link kit on 38s


See here for many more examples: Gallery

I'm finding in my area that the shops here either *love* or *hate*
FabTech. It is the strangest thing. Some shops won't even talk about
them ... then other shops will basically only push Fabtech. I had one
shop say, "Who the hell is Rize? Never heard of 'em. We install Fabtech."

I have been trying to make up my mind about what lift to put on my truck
for about 3 months now! I wish I could just drive it over to Marty and have
them do it--a BDS 8" 4 link, please But a drive from Sacramento
to south Texas would burn up a lot of cash that I can put into parts.

Anyway, I wonder how that 8 inch basic FabTech kit rides. It keeps
the stock radius arms and uses drop down brackets, and in the rear it
uses a 5" block, your stock ~ 2" block, a rear spring spacer and a
add a leaf. ( For a F350 it's a 3" block with your ~ 4" block and a rear
spacer and a add a leaf.) So, you'll most likely have some axle wrap.
But, the price is down there in the low 2ks installed, no? Is this a
"you get what you pay for" deal?
