Clearing 40s

I plan on running 40s on my 2011 f250 fx4. I want to lift the rear with ouo traction blocks. Will the 8 inch block give me enough lift or do I need to go higher?

I would think so but I would give Marty a call at Truck Toyz Performance. These guys can tell you what size of block would work with what you are running up front.

I would order the 9" BLOCK If you order an 8'' block that would give you 4.5 inches of lift in the rear and with an 8" front your gonna have a Cali lean to It!
How wide of a rim are you running? If your Running a 12-14 wide Its gonna rub like a champ.......Personally I think an 8" will look Goofy with 40's
10" for 40's and it will still rub at full lock with a 14 wide wheel a 12 wide or narrower will get you by though
Im gonna post a pic of an 8" with 40's

I sell both Pure's and Icons..both ride great if the Icons are optioned with 4 link arms but Pures front coils are a little softer and they have better spring options for the rears.

You might want to check their site..they are revamping it over the next week or so so there could be old info on some of their kits.

I don't sell BDS. I wasn't a fan of their earlier SD kits.

Love your truck....wish I could figure out a way to get one.

I have had every Super Duty they have come out with since 2002
This 2011-12 model is the best yet.
WHat are the mini spring packs that Pure has with there kit? add add a leaf designs?
Also those Pure Performance looklook higher than most 8'' kits Ive noticed that with the ICON, BDS, RIZE as well!!! The one i posted on 40's had a procomp 8" which IMHO Procomp does not make an 8"........they make a 6" that they stretch to an 8.
