Talking 2.5" ReadyLift W/ 37's

Well I went ahead and traded off my 05 a few weeks back and got into a new F350 FX4, got my leveling kit and tires on today, it is a 2.5" ReadyLift w/ 37x12.5x20 Pro Comp Xtreme M/T---the truck has 3000 miles and I was getting around 12-14 mpg stock, havent had any miles on the new tires yet so I dont know how much they will affect it but I will keep everyone posted

Look good. I have 35's on my stock wheels and a 2.5" reay lift waiting to go on. Do you notice a difference on how it drives or getting on and out of it? My wife is against me gettng a lift kit so i wonder if she will notice the dofference in hight?

Yah now I really regret getting 35s for my stock 18s. Looks awesome. I might have to ditch these 35s and get 37s. Anyone interested?

Do you rub on anything? Just 2.5" in the front or did you lift the back at all?

Hey thanks for the comments fellas, as far as ride height it did increase it i figure about 4 inches total with the 2.5" in the front to level it (and yes it is a front only kit, nothing in the rear was added) and the tires are 2.7" bigger than stock tires, i do think the ride may have smoothed out a little due to less air pressure in the tires but at the same time the bigger tires want to wander more than the stock tires, definetly not a wandering problem but you can notice it

also i had it out of a short trip today and the lie-o-meter on the dash stayed the same as what it said while the truck was stock but i havent fueled up yet so i havent hand calculated it

tire are comparably loud to th 37" toyos i had on my last truck, not bad at all in my book for big tires, there was rubbing on the rock/mud deflector thats inside the fender well, in the directions for the lift it said that this will happen and to get some flat iron and pull it back and bolt it to the frame but i just sawzalled off a few inches and it doesnt rub there anymore, there is some rubbing on the radius arm at full lock but that happens even with a lift kit

I got the rubbing too even with a six inch radius arm kit, I think it's those big lugs on the side
