4.5" lift

I have a buddy with a 2011 F350 single wheel and he is wanting to do a 4.5" lift with 22x14's and 35's. He said that everywhere he reads says the lifts are only for a 250. What exactly is the difference in the kits? Why wont these work on a 350? I believe he has been looking at the rough country kits.
Thanks for any help in advance!

There is no difference, the 350's just have I believe a 1.5'' taller block in the back. As far as the lift goes, I would rethink a rough country lift theres a lot better brands. And a 14'' wide wheel on a 4.5'' lift is going to either rip the corner of your bumper off or rub the radius arm I would think. Unless he is looking for the stretched look on the tire, 14'' wide wheels are usually meant for 15.5'' tires. I would look for a 22x10 since 35's are almost always 12.5'' wide.

Go with a Carli kit and he'll never regret it. What I'm assuming the 4.5" are saying is to use 250 rear blocks with their spring packs. The carli kit uses the factory 350 blocks along with their progressive spring packs to get the level stance.

Carli is what I have on mine and I love it! Just added bypasses to the front!

Like other said, only difference in the factory blocks on a 350 are taller.


If you can swing a Carli, do it.

If not make sure it's done right whatever kit it is.

I see the look your going for with massive wide rims, you'll need 4.5 or more to clear 35's on rims that wide.

I have 4.5 with 9" rims and tuck 37's nicely.

Just my opinion but 22x14's on a 35 is going to look retarded. Stretching a 12.5 tire over a 14" rim is bad enough but how far they will stick out on only a 35" tire is just going to exagerate the goofyness...

I'm almost positive it will rub with that small of lift on that aggressive a wheel even on a 35" tire.
