tips on lifting a obs

Wanting to lift my truck. Any tips and brands i should go for and I'm wanting a 4in and 18" wheels and 35" tires. I was just wondering the price and work I'm gonna be putting into it. Pics of ext. Cab long bed lifts look like. If 6" lift is about the same money i might go for it. And its completly stock suspension amd all of you if that matters.

for starters is your truck a 250? im gonna guess so by looking at your pic. 1st thing i would do is swap in a D60. lifting a twin I beam setup is asking for trouble.

See I'm not into messing with stuff like that and yes ita a 250. I'm only in high school and i pay for everything that goes into but for the right price i could possibly get it as a birthday and Christmas combined present. I just need to find the exact products I need so I know the exact price.

stay away from tring to lift the TTB amy more than 2 inches. It can be lifted higher, but as stated above, your asking for trouble. You'll have to find a donor D60 from a f350.

I lifted my f250 TTB 2.5 inches. I ordered new 2" over springs from Custom suspension and the drop brackets from Top Gunz Customz. Also using 4" blocks in place of the 3" factory rears.

With the frt bumber spaced out I was clearing 33" tires, with the lift I dont need the bumber spaced out to clear them. I will be able to clear 35's with the 2" lift and bumper spaced foward.

You could find a d60 the springs from an sd, and do the rsk very cheap, its mostly on how cheap you find the stuff, we have a lot of highschool members here, contact that guy with the dark Matt black looking f350 I can't think of his user name but his real name is gabe he is in highschool too, you can get your lift and everything cheap if you find it cheap, keep an eye on Craigslist and your local junk yard, are you in san Diego or south Dakota?

Mine is stock and I clear 33's looks like enough room for 35's still

yeah man, like they said. i would try looking for a D60 for a good price and do the RSK. it might take some time gut i'm sure you could find one for a good price.
