Coming over from Dodge: Lift questions.

Hi; as the title states I am coming over from Dodge. I ordered a 2014 F350 Lariat. Now I have LOTS of questions:
1 What level kit would you go with? (Carli or Pure Performance)?
2 MPG you guys are getting running 35"s on stock programming?
3 Best replacement headlights. (Recon HID projectors?) Want better lighting compared to stock as well.
4 Which replacement fog lights?
5 If anyone has a setup similar to this please post pictures
Thanks for any info guys. I am not that familiar with the Fords so I need answers.

Let me know if you have any questions on the Carli Kit. Good luck with your build!

I will thanks. I think I talked to you on line the other day about a level vs the 4.5" lift. What would really help me is a photo of a truck with a level and a truck with a 4.5" lift side by side. I just can't decide what way to go. I really like the 4.5" with 37's but I am not sure if the truck will be to big, have enough power, and what the mileage will be like with 37's.

Why would you go with that set up? I like a full fender well; and think 35's would look to small with a 4.5" lift. Personal preference I guess.

I don't like the stuffed look, my truck in my sig pic has a 4" lift with 35"s also recon lights are not at all worth the money . What gears did you get in the truck.

carli

1. Carli 4.5 with 35 on 18 (325/65)
2. 19 hwy / 15 city / 12 towing, and always driving 10-15 over the speed limit. Been tuned since adding lift can't say what it gets stock.
3. Don't have yet but I'd get rigid fog lights

What headlights are better than Recon? Mishmash that is pretty good mileage. How much of a drop would I see running 37's? Do you think I could get 16 empty on the HWY? I got 3:55 gears. Had to add the camper pkg to get them.

I have never heard anything good about any aftermarket headlight. The best thing to do would be to retrofit a projector kit into the factory headlights and I'm not positive but I would think running 37's with 3:55 gears would absolutely suck especially if you were to ever tow anything.
