37'' on the back question for a 250

Hey ive got my 2 1/2 leveling kit on the front but was wondering if i need to lift the back any. Ive heard some say that you need to lift the back and some say you dont. I was looking at innovative's billet blocks in 1'' and 2''. Does anyone know if these blocks come with the longer u-bolts or do you even need longer ubolts for just the 1'' block. I do tow alot with my 250 and I dont want to push the fender wells down onto the tire hauling 10k and rip up my bed. Any ino would be great

On my previous lift, I had a 1.5" block in the back and had to get new u-bolts. Unless you have airbags in the back, I would go with a 2" lift in the back to keep your tires clear of your fenders.

Ive got another question about my 350. I dont want a leveling kit on this truck cause when I load it down I dont want the front higher than the back. But how big of tires can you go with on a stock 08 4x4 350

F250s need the rear lifted. F350s shouldn't.
