Front Add Leaf

I'm currently running 285s with a trimmed bumper on my 350 and want get extra clearance and maybe bigger tire until I can afford a full suspension lift


This is how the truck sits right now, sag in front.

Anyone have pics of their truck with front add leaf?

BTW I hate my all terrains, m/t is deff in the future!!!

315's are probably about as big as your gonna be able to fit even with a leveling kit. If you want a lift i would just save up for that and not throw money into a half step of where you wanna be. My 2 cents anyway

mine is a superduty, but I'm gonna do the same thing. I currently have 285's on stock and it is fine but it is lower in the front. I want to get 2.7" in the front and F350 blocks in the rear. I'd say if you want a full lift, just save for that instead of getting half way where you want to be.

Best option would be to install a 3" RS kit..it will improve the ride quality and when your ready for a little more lift add SD springs for a really good ride.
