Best lift kit for '97 OBS

Hey ya'll I was in the market for a lift kit, preferably 6", for my '97 OBS. All my buddies got rough country lifts and they are great but I believe based on their website they only have a 4" lift for the 94 - 97 Powerstroke's. I've looked around and know skyjacker and tuff country have a 6" but don't have much experience with them so wanted y'alls opinions, anything would be great! Thanks!

I won't be able to help you but there is a world of difference in the front ends of a F250 and a F350. You need to get that info in your post for anyone to help you.

Agreed, the 350 will need springs and trac bar mount, the 250 will need springs and the brop brackets for the middle mount

Your going to need the drop brackets for the pivot in the center then, and hen lifting the d50 keep in mind it will wear the crap out of tires unless its aligned, and keep it aligned, Kause it may very well have a huge lean to it as well and eat the out side tire edges
