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.

you could just flip the axles on the trailer to lift that too... my buddy has a 8" lifted trucks on 37's with a huge 5th wheel... but he had to lift the trailer too
