ICON 2.5 lift

So I am still debating getting the ICON 2.5 or just heading to 4Wheel parts and getting whatever 2inch they sell..

The end goal is to maintain ride quality and clear my tires without rubbing and not be abnormally tall.

Honestly the stock wheels are perfect IMO I just want a wider tire. I am debating between these two.

BFG All-Terrains
LT325/60R20/E = 35.4 $$$$

LT285/65R20/E = 34.7 $$

Anyone have experience with these on a f-250 running the lifts above or be able to point me to something that will help out.. PICS would be ideal, seems hard to find with people running these on stock wheels which is what I want.

I'm running the Icon 2.5" progressive spring leveling kit on my truck and LOVE it. Our front ends are set up almost identical, so yours would be setup similarly. Depending on width of tire (mine were about 13" wide and they would rub just slightly at full lock), the tires you are looking at shouldn't rub at all with the Icon setup.

BTW, welcome to the ORG!

Thanks... The tires I think I want the most are the 325's but I dont know anyone that squeezed them onto stock wheels with a 2.5 to let me know if they fit or not.

I am running the 325/60/20 BFG AT on my 350. they are just rubbing a little bit. I am going to install a set of step back mud flaps, and I think this should fix the problem. I am running these on a Rev teck 2.5" leveling kit.

Also, as measured on the truck, the 325's measure out at exactly 12" wide, and exactly 35" from level floor to top of tire. As stated, this is while on the truck. I also have these on factory rims.

Hope it helps

You can run 35" without any problem..but if you want a lift 2.5" the Icon is best..for a few months that is..something new is coming..

Great, something new ? Unless it can let me run those BFG's without any rub or modification then Its likely not of interest to me.. I dont like the idea of being able to fit the tire,
but having it rub when i turn..

Truck looks great btw, where does the tire rub ?

Thanks. It just catches the bottom of the mud flap. I have a set of step backs, now just have to get them on. It only catches at full turn right now, so this will fix the problem.
