Lift Kit for 2012 F250

First off this is my first Ford since my 2001 F350, had 2 dodges recently. Anyway, is there any difference in the fender wells on the new trucks( bigger or smaller) I am trying to figure out which lift I want. Either 4" with 35" or 6" with 37's--Dealer was trying to sell me a 6" with 35's but I thought they may be a little small for a 6" lift.
Did a search and found a couple of pics but need more info. If anyone has a new 2011 or 12 truck with these lifts and tires I would like to see them and hear any advice you might have on which looks best on the new trucks.

If you are the same guy from Cummins Forum you should look into a Carli setup. I remember that you had a Starter Kit on your Mega.

You can run 37's on the newer trucks with 4" of lift. The key is to stick with 9" wide wheels with 5-6" of backspace.

The one and the same, I looked into Carli again but I did not see any info on the tire size but assumed a 35 would work just fine. I really like how smooth it rides stock and was looking at all options. Do you have any pics of a carli setup with 37's?

BTW thanks for your input

The fender wells on the new trucks are larger than past years and there are a few people running leveling kit with 35" tires which looks good IMO, but 4" lift with 35s has been my favorite not too big not too small

heres one from their website 4.5" with 37s I think it looks a little to crowded

Thanks, I saw those pics on the Carli site but I could of swore that was more than 4.5" of lift by looking at it. Are you running 17 or 18's?
Could you PM me a price for the Carli?

on these newer trucks 35's look small if you do more then a leveling kit. I've done them all,leveling with 35's, 4.5" with 35's, 5.5" with 37's. and ran 20x9's with +18 offset & 0 offset, and 20x10 with -25 offset. I will say for fit stick with a 9" wide wheel with a 5" backspace or 0 offset. And I think a 6" with 37's looks perfect on these trucks.

look threw this thread there are a few lifted 11's in it.
