2008 F250 Daystar Leveling kit

Hey guys, I have a 2008 F250 2wd (FML) I was thinking of doing a 6" lift but we're thinking picking up a 54' trailer for the racecars, and I don't think pulling a 5th wheel/gooseneck will be possible with a lifted truck.... Anybody have any pictures of how the leveling kit will look like with the biggest tires possible? can i fit 35's? I just picked up Pro-Comp 7105 wheels, they're 18's And i was wondering if i can run 35's? OR anyone know if i can pull a 5th wheel or goosneck with a lifted truck? I need help guys!!!

Trailer Towing w/ 35"

I have an 09 F250 with 35" tires on 20" rims, 2" lift, and bumper pull a 20ft low-boy trailer with a farm tractor and implements (9000lb). It works great because I have an adjustable height hitch which allows keeping the trailer level. Otherwise it would be an issue even on my short trailer. I suspect leveling will definitely be an issue on a long 52ft trailer (as the ones I have seen are already fairly low to the ground).

However if you are having the trailer built for you, why not have the fifth-wheel gooseneck built to your truck bed height. Conversely, I have not seen an easy height adjustable fifth-wheel hitch plate...or gooseneck, but it they make one it could be an option....assuming it would go low or high enough.

Good like in your search.
