Talking Lets get lifted

hey everyone i've had my 7.3 for awhile now and am ready to get her sitting up off the ground a little ways. what im looking for is info on whats good bad and ugly in lifts, i need leaves all the way around *** all 4 are beyond wore out from heavy haughling in the past and are sagging badly. now that i have a different job she doesn't pull a goose neck anymore and thats hwat the beater is for. what i want to do is run at least a 35 no more than a 38 inch tall tire and 14.5 inches wide. what all do i need? are there good kits out there without breaking the bank? all help is very appreciated, eventually down the road i want to put super singles on so thats on the back burner for now

Totally different requirements for 35" vs 38"..big difference in costs. 35" can clear with a hanger lift. 38" will need a 8" spring lift...

We can price up kits if you like..PM me.

Sounds like the 8 inch is the way to go but which ones are good and which aren't?

Icon hands down the best..all others a distant 2nd.

Best would be a hybrid kit using springs and hangers for the best ride quality but will cost more.

I can tuck a 335/55r22 in my 4 inch with minimal rubbing. Equals out to about 36.7 inches IIRC..

IIRC = if I remember correctly.

If it was me, id bump ride quality up on the list especially if it's your DD..

Then I would decide on the size tire you want then decide on a 4", 6" or 8" lift. The bigger the tire, the more expensive it gets.

I'm going to run a 35 inch tire that's 14.5 inches wide then later down the road I am going to put super singles on it which are roughly 38 inch tall 14 inches wide, like I said I'm looking for durability and longevity ride quality is not my main concern.

I'm going to be doing the same thing here. I'm on 35s now, but I'm going to 38.5s. I was looking at 8 inches, but I think I'm going to go to 8 inches, with blocks and hangers to get me to 10.5 all the way around. Don't forget you have the option to go to a 6" lift, then block that lift later on, to get you over 8", 10", 12" whatever. Just avoid putting blocks up front.
