37" tires with 2.5" leveling kit

Does anyone have pictures of a 2.5" leveling kit with 37" tires on stock 20" rims? I'm thinking about doing this to my truck. What are the pros and cons of this?

Talking 37's

Here is the link to the thread after I put on my 37's, no issues I love it, it has that beefy look but you are still able to hook up to a 5th wheel trailer with no problems

It will rub the paint of the radius arm but wont do any damage at all. You learn were to stop turning at so you dont hit them. Mine barley rub at full lock so i just back off a hair

You guys that are doing a 2.5" leveling kit, do you not have the stabalizer kit?
I just curious because my truck as the stabilizer kit and it seems I sit about 2" taller than most other F-250s out there. Would I still need to leveling kit, or should I be good to go?

Are you comparing them to 08's.

Even the guys that have the plow kit that want to run 37s still have to get a leveling kit. And if your trucks not a f350 you will need atleast a 1inch block in the rear.

Any other 08 F-250 I see, I tend to be about 2" taller. I'm not really looking for 37" tires but I'm just trying to sort out the height of my stock truck.
Right now, I'd rather get some nice black wheels that I can put my stock tires on, and go bigger with the tires later actually....
