Lift advice?

Been looking around the forum and opinions seem to differ a lot. I have a stock 1996 f350 extended cab dually 2wd and am looking to shove 37s(military tires) knowing ill need some sort of wheel spacer for the back tires, is there a way I could get away with a leveling kit? was looking at a 2.5 front and 1.5 back, Any info would be appreciated.

if the tires you are thinking of ay those 16.5in rimmed hummer tires you may have trouble balancing them. my old roommate and I bought 8 and we saved a ton up front but they never balanced right. I sold mine and my buddy kept his. We tried the balancing beeds, airsoft bb's, weights and I don't remember what else.

Just something to consider. the military tires are a 50/50% shot they'll balance or not.

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 7.3, 6.0 trans cooler, 08 mirrors, AIS Intake.

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, aem intake.
-2006 f350 king ranch, aem intake, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes.

Ya that's exactly what I was thinking to throw on there. Just wondering if I could squeeze them on there with that lift or do I need to go bigger? Looks as if the 350s sit a little higher stock than the 250s.

the military tires were like 36.5inches tall (if they were new I would think they would be a true 37in) you would just have to measure how big your current height and tires are. I feel you would need a actual lift kit unless you want to redneck a 2wd severely.
