easyride 6" lift?

hi again gonna see if i can picka couple of brains.
right off the bat i got a 97 f250 QC 4x4 with the 5 bolt axle pivot brackets 35x12.5x16.5s rims are 9.25 inches wide. all pretty common stuff around here.. front bumper was cut on a bit to fit the 35s

now the question i went on the tuff country site and from what i gather it is only a 4" lift that they offer and it is good to clear 35X12.5 tires (I guess that would be no rubbing ever).. why is it on every dealer advertises the kit as a 6" lift..

i never wanted to lift the truck but i have a set of parnelli jones 37x13.5s i got for free and it seems like a waste to leave them in my garage.. and i need shocks tires bushings all that good stuff anyways. so i figured i would kill 2 birds with one rock.

questions are who has a simillar F250 and what is your advice, thoughts.

97 supercab 4x4: work truck. Reallly Loud stereo (16 speakers, none visable), 20's/35s, 6637, straight piped.
99vette: stock.
89crx, working on a idea that involves a 454 bigblock, 2.5tons, and boggers.
Custom built 12' jon boat: yea its got a 50 horse jet drive.

i was going to do the same thing as you, lift my TTB. i said to hell with it and bought a dana 60, ran me a 1,000$ for everything but lifts are cheaper, and you could run 37's with a add-a-leaf with ur stock spring pack and a RSK, Just shim the bumper out maybe 2" and that's it. it'll ride better then stock and cheaper in the long run.

I have the 6" on my truck right now rides rough. 35's look a little small on it 37's would look better I had 38.5's but they rubbed on full turns they were also 15.5 inches wide which didnt help. I will be switching to the shackle flip/reversal this year with a dana 60

Throw that F250 suspension away and install a Dana 60. Thats the very first thing I did when I got my 95. Here's a pic of why the TTB sucks.


What it should look like
