f-350 2" lift

Hey guys does anyone have any pictures of an Obs F-350 with a 2"-3" leveling kit on 33's. I put a dana 60 in my 1997 f250 4x4 and i have a bunch of f350 suspension parts to put in ( springs,swaybar, track bar etc.) Would like to see how it looks.

Thanks, thats what i am looking for. Awesome truck by the way. Do the tires rub at all when your turning sharp? I have 33x12.50's on my truck now. Hopefulling with a 350 springs and 2" lift they wont rub. My wheels are offset though so maybey i might be okay.

The inside corners of the bumper were trimmed(about 1/2")
And the bumper was spaced out about 3/4"

The tires only rubbed the leaf springs under a full turn(no lift would help that)

My 97 OBS reg cab with 2" leveling kit with BFG's 285-85R-16. Leveling kit is nice but if you tow heavy trailers you might want to consider some Air Bags.

F250 with d60 and stock f350 springs rear tire is 305/55/20, and with 33/12.50/16.5's I had no rubbing issues at full lock, mine is leveled Kause I didn't use the f350 rear blocks

Really improved handling, it has a stiffer ride, but not a killer. I added the whole leafs but you could cut them off short and add these plus a cut off regular leaf and get the same thing and ride exactly the same as yours does now.
