OBS lift height...need some input/pics asap

Hey guys I just solid axle swapped my 97 f250 psd and am getting ready to order all my lift parts tomorrow. I was certain I would need to run the sky RSk (3") and some 4" lift springs to run 37" tires. But Ive read a couple posts of guys doing the d60 swap and just a 3" RSk and they are running 37s. Now this is a pretty substantial difference and am afraid of my truck being too lifted if I run those springs as well as the RS kit. Anyone that has done this swap could you please post some pics and exactly what suspension mods you did? It would be a huge help as I am wanting to order everything tomorrow thank you!

I know another guy on here running 37's with only a 3" lift as well. I don't think he has any rubbing issues either.

I've rubbed my 35's, but I beat the hell out of my truck off road. My tire will kiss the corner of the tire well while compressed and turning.

its not so much your lift, its what offset you plan on running with your rims, wheel spacers, how wide of tires.... Etc.

There are guys on here who have ran 38"s stock no lift, yes, stock no lift alls they did was put spacers in the front bumper. Its all about your tires not so much your lift.
