brads never ending build thread..

Well guys this is my first diesel and its already the beginning of a long beautiful relationship..lol

Ok so i got a 2006 f250 ccsb psd. i bought it 2 months ago.

stage one is 8 inch fabtech radius arm lift with the dirt logic 2.5 shocks all the way around..im also using my 2in leveling kit to make it a total of 10 inches of lift on 40x14.50r24 super swamper m16s and chrome 24 inch kmc monsters. Should be a pretty sexy setup imo. lift is going on this weekend and tires should be here monday or tuesday.. so pictures will be coming as i go.. this will be the second lift ive done so hopefully it want be too hard..


heres a few pictures to get us started... day i bought my truck!!

Have u used them before? My ex gf had them on her 06 250..8 inch lift like yours. My opinion, but rode like a ROCK. I think 2.5 inch is muchhh better. Just my 2 cents

ya man Id stay with the cheaper 2.5 inch coils. I could be a wrong but the 4.0s being too stiff might be the reason why as far as my knowledge, Fabtech is the only one who goes 4 inch around.

My ex has the same lift as you though, I know alot of guys on here seem to not run Fabtech, but it is a pretty beefy kit.

i had a 4in fabtech on my last truck.. 94 chevy 1500 and it performed great and rode good as well.. so until fabtech lets me down i will keep using them, imo they are great. im just ready to get my lift on, ive been looking at my rims and lift for over 2 months, i havent been able to find tires until last week
