What tires will fit

I would like to put a 2.5 Not the leveling kit but the 2.5 lift kit.

Has anyone done this? what size tires could I fit without trimming anything(on my stock 20" rims).

I was thinking 325/60/20 bfg at but they only show a 50psi rating, wont that set off my tps?

What to do?

On your stock wheels you can probably get a 37x13.50 to fit with minor trimming.

Do you have an '08? If so 35's will fit with no lift, so 2.5'' lift should get 37's

I would not recommend running 37s under a 2.5" system. We run them under 4.5" systems occationally and IMO that is a tight fit. Furthermore, 37s on the stock wheels will exhibit considerable rubbing on the radius arms at near full lock steering.

Here are a few examples of 2.5" systems on 35s:

Bilstein 2.25" on 35s w/stock wheels


Icon 2.5" on 35s w/20x9 wheels


The tire pressure sensors will alert you under 65 lbs. but this may be recalibrated by your local dealership.

Can you recalibrate them your self with the service tool?
thanks for the pics, what 6 inch kit would you reccomend?
Also if I do 37's with a 373 rear end should I consider regearing or should I be ok?

Well I pulled the trigger!

A bit different from my original plans but I dropped the truck off this morning for a 6 inch fabtech lift with radius arms and a little extra lift in the back and 37x12.5 xtreme m/t on the factory 20"wheels
Cant wait to see what it looks like.

When one of my neighbours pointed out how much my mileage would drop I responded by saying, I'll do the exhuast and intake to recoop my losses. My wife thought it was a good idea...I love her!

also I ordered bushwacker flairs. Should be like a new truck! Then I'm gonna drop it off for it's first oil change!

I have not found a service tool that will allow you to recalibrate the tps. As far as I know this can only be done by the service department.

Here are a few of the high quality 6" systems we offer all of which are backed by lifetime warranties:

Rize Industries 6 Inch Radius Arm Front System - 2008 F250/F350 SRW - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

BDS 6 Inch Radius Arm Suspension System - 2008 F250/350 SRW 4wd - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

BDS 6 Inch 4-Link Suspesion System - 2008 F250 Superduty SRW 4wd - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

RCD 6 Inch 4-Link Suspension System - 2008 F250/350 SRW 4wd - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

Rize Industries 6 Inch Quad Link System - 2008 F250/F350 SRW - 2008 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store

And here are a few examples:
