LIFT KITS!

What are you guys running, and what would you recommend?
I'm thinking about a 4" lift with 35's.. or a 6" and 37's. Maybe just a 2 or 3" leveling kit with 35's for now..
I'm new to the ford thing, been a Jeep girl forever.. But I don't know what's best on the super duty.. Help me out!

All of those are greT setups...just depends on how big you want to go....I've never been a fan of 6inch with 37s only because I use my truck a lot and that just to high for everyday things to me.....I really like a 4inch with 35s...still easy to use but gives ya the lifted truck look and feel....but since these trucks are so big already, a leveling kit and 35s is almost perfect...to me

I had a 3" lift and 35's on my xj.. It wasnt big enough.. Budget wise, I think Ill stick with 35's and 4" lift.. I just dont know what brand to buy. Im short, so a truck thats too big wont be a great idea for me!

almost all of the kits are great kits but it all depends on what you want to spend.. the more you are willing to spend the better quality you will get in return. Icon is a great lift but you're talking a good amount of cash. 35's and a 4" lift would look great.
