I can make you a good deal on the 4" lift kit if you want?.... or I can do a little research and find a decent leveling kit if you are dead set on going that direction

just a side note, I did a 6 inch lift on my 96 250, be weary who you get the lift from, Mine had poorly engineered drop brackets and whatnot, I did alot of fab work of my own to get them where they needed to be, If i had to do it all over again id go with no more than 4 inch, Seems to be all the drive line angles can take without tearing itself apart

I think for my 95 i want to try out that 2.5 inch lift, it seems like a leveling kit but with drop brackets to make my alignment right. plus its not a whole lot more than add-a-leafs

ive seen tons of 4 inch lifts and they dont seem to fit the trucks right, makes them look narrow, granted people run 10.50 wide tires where as i run a 14.00 wide tire on mine with that 6 inch. I ordered the 2.5 so when i get it and if its all i hope for i wanna run 35x12.50s with an offset wheel so i look wider but not low and wide
