Calling Icon 2.5" or Carli 2.5" modded users

I am seriously considering either the Carli (Pintop) 2.5" or Icon(Stage IV) 2.5" suspension upgrade for my '08 F250 CCSB FX on factory 20" rims with 35" tires. My question is crucial in my decision so I really need all the assistance I can

What is th final MAXIMUM height of your truck on 35's ? This is needed to verify that my truck will fit into the garage. Upgrading and not being able to park in the garage is not an option.


Thanks

7" is pretty tall, I don't think that'll be an issue but i'll check for you.

I don't know if the 350's sit higher but I have a 7" garage and I don't think I could do much more than a leveling kit and fit in my garage I think that with 35's would put me over? I plan to get a 8" garage in my next house

Make sure you take into consideration the true tire height and not the spec'd tire height.

My truck with a pintop 2.5" system and full replacement leaf springs sits at 83" with 1/4 tank of fuel. My tires are 325/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers. That will be the tightest of tight fits lol.

Thanks for the info. After seeing that things were going to be down to the hair, I put my truck at every conceivable position in relation to the door opening. Unfortunately at the highest point I only have an additional 2-1/4" clearance so I must surrender to the fact that it's NO lift more me.

I've made it in a 7'2" garage with 35's and 2.5 pintop and it was real sketchy. I wouldnt even try a 7'.
