Icon 5.5" Lift and 37's?

Is that possible? I want just enough clearance to fit some 37x12.50 or 13.50 wide tires with 20" rims. Have a 2012 F250 4x4 for reference. I am gonna do the stage 2 icon 4.5" lift with 1" coil spacers and 6" blocks in the rear. cause I think the 7"-8" lift would be too much for my taste.

Thanks in advance!

I think there are guys running that on a 4.5 inches of lift. I think there is more to it then just adding a spacer. i asked about doing that as well on my 09 and there were several things i was told needed to be done. Basically in short it would be easier and as far as cost goes.....lift vs. money, cheaper to do a full lift of whatever size. You might as well just do a outright 6 inch lift that is complete.

As long as you stick with a 8.5-9" wide wheel with a 5-5.5" backspace it will clear great with a 4" kit. If you are planning on running 10" or wider wheels or wheels with 4.5" of BS then you will want to go around 6".
