what lift kit and what bumpers? (2wd)

ok i have a 95 f350 crew cab dually 2wd. i was kicking around the idea of a newer truck but since "betty" is paid for i think im just going to cherry her out.

i want to lift my truck. i know its only a 2 wheel drive but i figure if i have 4 35'' tires in the back and a winch up front i should be alright considering i do very mild 4 wheeling. i'm looking at 4 or 6''. what kit is best for a 2wd to run 35inch tires? anybody got any pictures of 2wd trucks lifted??

i also plan on installing a flatbed soon but to really stick to the ranch truck look i want to get a ballsy front bumper. like a ranch hand style. not just a crappy brush guard. i want a big solid bumper i can heard cattle with!! who makes ballsy bumpers besides ranch hand? anybody got one used? i saw ranch hand doesnt make a bumper replacement for an obs truck. are there any other brands that may be cheaper? if it comes down to spending 900-1000 dollars on a ranch hand style bumper i'll just build it myself!!



oh anybody got any pictures of lifted obs dually's?

iron bull bumpers....Dunes will hook you up!

i have pictures of a lifted 2wd, but its of a 94 F150. It has a 4" lift and does not look like it at all...so go bigger than you would think.

Iron Bull Winch Bumpers


yeah the dana 60 swap seems like a lot of work! plus the money in buying an axle, transfer case, driveshafts, suspension and steering doesnt seem worth it. i'd be better off just selling my truck and buying one that is 4x4. i think i'll stick with the 2wd lifted dually idea for now. plus i might get a couple more mpgs being lifted and 2wd opposed to being lifted and 4wd. and i think 6 inch is the way to go in a lift. the only company i found who makes a kit for a 2wd f350 is skyjacker so far
