I have an '03 F250 that I'd like to put 37" tires on. I'd prefer to keep it as low as possible so I'm also considering Bushwacker cut out fender flares. The only problem is I'd like to stay with a 12.5" wide, maybe 13.5" wide tire and I'm not sure it'd look that good with the wide flares.
So the goal here is to have the best ride possible and it seems to me that the Icon 6" lift with new spring packs front and rear would give the best ride. But how would it compare to a shackle lift in the front and '08 leafs in the back with a shackle flip and a block to get the lift? Just trying to figure out the best possible combination I should go with to fit the tires and have the best ride. Thanks!
Bushwacker cutouts will make your tires look skinny unless you run a 15inch wide tire which will rub on the leaf springs no matter what backspacing.
I have a Icon 8" full spring kit (front and rears) it rides awesome, I do a lot of driving on gravel roads in the oilfield kit does well.
08+ leaf springs give a better ride because the spring is longer.
