Can I....

run 35's with just a 4" lift, regardless of what brand it is? I have a set of 20x10 Jesse James Widow wheels, have yet to buy the tires or the lift. Just curious, because Zone Offroad advertises 33's with a 4", then Skyjacker says 35's with a 4", and Revtek says 35's with a 4".

If I can actually run 35's with a 4" lift, regardless of the brand, I'm leaning toward the Zone Offroad kit, merely from a price standpoint. If someone with experience with any or all of these tells me different, then my next choice would be the Rough Country 5" kit. Thanks in advance.

Yes.

It all comes down to backspacing and offset of the wheel.

No not really...

4" of lift is equal to a 2" lift on a truck and isn't enough. If you use a off the shelf 4" kit..that was designed for a truck yes. But the Excursion still will not handle as it should.

Excursions require different kits than what manufactors supply...just a rebranded truck lift.

We have helped Thousands get the best ride-handling possible for their Excursions..not as cheap as a off the shelf lift but you always get what you pay for.

If I can help please PM.

These are kits listed for Excursions, not the F250. I have the Helwig rear bar.

On a pickup and using stock 7" rims maybe...if you never get offroad.



Rann, those kits are as I stated just a rebranded pickup lift, only difference is they include the rear shock pins that a Excursion needs.

It will be better than stock but not as good as it could be by far.
