Lift Idea(s)

I'm considering doing a lift on my 08' F350 SW / LB... I'm looking at doing either a 4" or 6", running my factory 20" wheels, w/ Toyo MT 35's. I'm curious to know if anyone has pics of a similar setup... I'm wondering if running 35's on the stock 20's will look silly.

Do a 6" traction block in the back so you keep your factory ride/ weight carrying ability and also add the luxury of traction bars. All good things!!

For running 35s on stock 20s on a 08, you can do it with a leveling kit.

6" would be a lot of lift for that combo, IMO.


Here's a 2.5" Icon with 35" Toyo MTs on stock wheels:





The Icon system is currently 10% off and has free shipping in the contiguous 48 states.

I agree...6" is too much lift for just 35's, 37's fit great on a 6"

Are 37's out of the question on stock 20's? I'm somewhat leaning towards a Rize or Icon 4.5" setup. I'm wanting a bit more than just a leveling kit. I like both Rize and Icon in terms of how modular they seem, meaning I can add to them as needed in the future.

I would not say out of question....you might be able to get away with a 13.50 tire....Kumho makes a 37x13.5x20

Stock 20's are I think what 8 -8.5" wide...I think thats fine....and that would fit with a 4", hell maybe even a leveling kit...they would be stuffed but would fit.

Rize only has 6" and 8" suspensions for the 08.....and they aren't all that modular to configure.

Icon has the 4.5" and they are very modular in that you can order individual box kits, parts, etc..

Don't have any pics of stock 20s, but Icon 4.5" and 37s:
