Carli 4.5" suspension kit on - pics

Long story - Just got my truck back Friday night and it turned out sweet. I've had seven powerstrokes over the last 13 years and lifted most with some pretty extreme. This 2012 F-350 KR was going to be my truck I left basically stock. I did do that for about a year and a half but finally gave in. I liked the factory look of these trucks and they were very comfortable and quiet so I didn't want to change much since I travel so much. Well after reading about the Carli kits; their performance and ride I decided to give it a try. I still wanted the factory look just a bit bigger with a plusher ride, although factory these things ride pretty darn good. So now the 4.5" carli kit is on with the 5100's. I know the 5160's are an even better ride but for me right now, that is all I need.

So I had back surgery four days ago and am not to drive for one-two weeks. My truck was completed three days after surgery. It sat for almost two days in my driveway until yesterday morning. I had enough so got up early and took it out. What a nice ride despite my sore back. Later my wife found out and was not too happy. I told her to come take it for a ride and she agreed it was very comfortable. I even tried convincing her it rode better than her Escalade...not sure she bought it but it works for me. Anyway, I'll quit rambling with the long story and get on with the pictures.

I kepy my factory 18" KR wheels and added Fred Goeske's hub centric 2" adaptors. I really like the stance and look. To me it still looks factory just bigger and rides very nice. I can't imagine you guys that are running the pin tops or 5160's. the ride has to be outstanding.

Cheers,












2012 F-350 King Ranch

Look bigger then 35x12.5 but smaller then 37x12.5. I am going to guess they are Toyo Open Country 315/70/r18 (36x13r18)

Either way, looks good Bad Superduty!

Wow looks awesome! Did you like the KR wheels over aftermarket? Seems like it would've been cheaper than adding the spacers
