Sky Manufacturing Kit Advice!

I am looking to order the 5" front shackle reversal, 4.5 rear shackle flip kit for my 97 F350 from Sky. My goal is to be able to run 35's. I know this will fit 35's, but will it be to big?

Has anyone installed this kit? Does anyone have pictures?

Thanks, Ryan

I run the Sky 3" RSK and I clear 35" BFG muds on 18x10" rims with a 4.5" backspace. I kept the stock springs and now it rides better than stock with the rear shackles. If I can get a chance I will get some pics posted.

You've just inspired me to go bigger with my truck. I already have a Skyjacker 6" suspension system, but I think I wanna go bigger! I'm gonna get the 5" shackle reversal and the 4.5" shackle flip. According to Sky, I should be able to run 42" tires. For $500 you can't go wrong!

A buddy of mine runs the 5" sky kit with 37" and m/t it looks bad a$$. I run the ORU RSK with 35" not a prob at all. And yes you can spend 100.00 on a add-a-leafs but why would you want to wear a kidney belt just driving down the road?

I would be forever grateful if you could get a picture of his truck.

Also, would anyone with a lift be able to measure the height of their truck? I am trying to get an idea of if my truck will fit in the garage or not after.

Thanks

You can see pics of my truck in my garage, or you can go here Big Red pictures from trucks photos on webshots. I'll measure mine tomarrow.

Thanks!

A measurement would help quite a bit. Do you know if you are able to fit into a standard size single garage height wise?

I don't think it would fit in a standard garage. I'll try to get a measurement today, I forgot to do it the other day.
