dream beams and coils ought to get 6" probably need bags for much more than that unless you only drive on an ice rink.
I've bagged a ranger to lay frame (on beams) should be similar. I moved the radius arms to the outside of the frame and moved the beam pivots out to widen the track to clear the bags against the frame on full drop. Notch the frame for steering and cut the inner fenders out move a few things up in the engine bay.
Be a cool project, don't see many of the obs on the ground.

Well ive bagged a 68 c10 and a few other trucks but never a obs f250 its going to be a task but it will get done. For now its getting static dropped as much as possible i dont think it should be to hard but its all new to me on that truck.

A lot of people hate on the ibeams but I've built a few and had good luck.
I'd go with the DJM dream beams, when I did it last they were the best deal and worked well.
