Installed - 4.5" Icon Suspension Lift Kit & Road Armor Bumper on an 08 Ford F250 4x4


We just completed a total overhaul on a 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty Diesel 4x4. We started the install off with a 4.5" Icon Suspension Lift Kit. This kit is packed with great parts to complete your lift. You will receive 4.5" Lift Dual Rate Coils, 5" Fabricated Rear Block Kit with built in bump stops and front and rear Icon Performance Series 2.0 shocks. We continued the install by installing a brand new Road Armor Stealth Front Bumper with Pre-Runner Guard. All Road Armor bumpers come in satin black powdercoat and are designed to accommodate 4" diameter lights due to the built in recessed light pods. The customer opted to purchase front lights at a later date. We finished the suspension off by installing our very own Top Gun Customz Dual Steering Stabilizer Kit with Bilstein Cylinders to help with stability on and off-road.

We finished the install by wrapping 35x12.50x20 Toyo Open Country M/T Tires around 20x10 Chrome XD Monster Wheels. This Super Duty turned out great and the customer could not be happier with the way his Ford turned out.


Installed Components:
4.5" Icon Suspension Lift Kit
Top Gun Customz Dual Steering Stabilizer Kit with Bilstein Cylinders
Road Armor Stealth Front Bumper with Pre-Runner Guard
35x12.50x20 Toyo Open Country M/T Tires
20x10 Chrome XD Monster Wheels

5" blocks in the rear? Is that a good idea?

Yes you are correct. With the standard block size being 4", 5" blocks are completely safe and are pretty standard in smaller lifts.
