Anyone with 2.5 in the front running 35s-truck.jpgThey fit with stock wheels. I have 2.5 in front and the stock F-350 block in the back with 35's on the stock 18" wheels it looks great and there is no rubbing. I worked on a 06 F-250 that had 35x12.50 on the stock 18"s with no lift and they fit. The 20" wheels have the same offset as the 18"s so will be fine. I will try to find a pic.

I may would go bigger but I have to pull several gooseneck trailers and I think the tail end of the trailer will drag to much if I go higher I just want a more beefy look and to sit off the 35/12.50 a little

I really want to do this, just to give my self a little lift all over, but i've heard you would need bigger (longer) shocks for the front. that true?

Yes that is true. A lot of people go with a Bilstein shock that is for a 2" lift. I forget what the model number is but they are about $100 each. Or you can go the cheap route and buy $30 shock extensions and use your stock shocks like I did. I think they work pretty well.
