Alright guys. I'm in the process of finding a shop to remove my lovely 4" lift.
I've really been on the fence with this issue lately. and overall it sucks having to make a decision.
4" lift kit pros:
-plenty of tire clearance; no issues with rubbing at all
-A full 4" of up travel on front suspension
-sits perfectly level
lift kit cons:
-Having stacked blocks is kinda crappy & dangerous
-Little bit of hop off the line due to the block(s) height
-MPG burden, how much... not sure 1-2mpg hwy?
-harder to work out of the bed/reach over rails
-Doesn't fit in home garage or parking garages
I guess the only 2 issues I have with going back to F250 stock setup is the Front suspension... it's seems to only have 2" of up travel. Doesn't seem like a whole lot. I'm currently using 2" with the lift kit just driving around. 2nd concern I have with going back to stock is the truck won't sit level; but the F250 only has a 1/2" differnce right? if so, that's not to bad. Better than the 4" rake most stock 1,500's have
Diesel prices are going thru the roof (again) and I drive alot. Only real off-roading i'm into now is trails and camping trips. fire roads etc. and I am debating a Full detroit locker for the rear. and at 80mph the MPG's really start hurting. I like to drive 75-80mph on road trips... which puts the MPG's in the 14-15 range or maybe less. Need some realistick logical opinions here... tired of sitting on the fence. My 35x12.50 Procomp Extrem AT's on factory 20's is the largest I want to go. my wheel/tire combo are perfect (for me).
