2000 F250 lift 4" and 37's

Hey guys Bought a 2000 7.3 with 323km on it for 4000 last fall and have been doing maintance on it and a few mods to get it up to speed, intake,exhuast, gauges, chip. I have been doing alot of reading a and i really like the low look with full tire, like a 35 on a level kit, but I got a screaming deal on 37x13.50x20 on rims with 80% for a grand and i want to mount it up. Now i have a 8' camper and I want to stay as low to the ground with the high center of gravity it will have. I have a line on skyjacker lifts at a good price. They website is not great for additonal gear to "beef" up the lift. I want to do it right as this is not my 89 toyota pickup im lifting and my familys safety is way more important the my pocket book. In addiontion to the Lift what else would you guys recomend to purchase eg brake lines, pit man arm, ect ect to make sure my truck is 1 safe and 2 the same a factory on wear and tear terms, any help is appreiated

Thank you

I forgot to mention I want the lift to be a 4" and 37's like guys on here are running, I also bought Iron Cross front and rear bumpers so that should clear up the problems with tire rub on front bumper.

Well... It depends on what the lift will be used for. Skyjacker is lower end stuff but works great for most people's needs. As far as what additional stuff you'll need, you will be fine with stock components. Also, wear and tear will be greater on your stock parts (ball joints, steering, etc) but that because of the larger tires. It's inevitable

I'm not sure what you're asking us.
Why not get the 4" skyjacker and call it a day?

I want to just do that but is there any additional parts I should order to make sure it's good, like track bars or drop arms or I don't know. Steering stabilizer or dual shocks up front

Right on.
Well, I think any decent lift will come with whatever track bar or bracket is needed to keep the axle centered.
That being said, what are you going to pay? We have a lot of good spring shops that will make you springs to whatever size and spec you want, then you can just add the drop pitman arm and adjustable track bar yourself.
Might be cheaper and or better.

I can get the lift from Lordco for about 1000 including tax. With the spring shops do they just re arch my springs?

$200 was what he charged for the fronts. Included new u bolts and centering pins.
I asked him about the rear and it would be the same. So $400 total for the lift, plus a drop pitman arm and mod the trackbar.
I don't know what comes in the skyjacker kit or what a good price would be.
I hate hate hate lordco though.
