lift kit

I would like to run 33's under my excursion but don't know if a superduty leveling kit works on excursions or do I need to get a 2.5" or 3" likft kit to fit them?

I am running 35s on my rig with 2.5" tough country leveling blocks up front. The only truck mod I needed to do otherwise was cutting some of the wheel housing away on the passenger side only... but you'll never notice from the driveway. It looks real nice and I get a lot of compliments and people like the look of my rig and ALWAYS ask if I have a lift, i say, nope, stock they can't believe it.

Im fitting 33's with no lift, no rubbing. But a leveling kit would help out. I hate the saggy front end.

I run 315/17 BFG AT's (roughly 34.5") on mine w/ a F350 level-up kit (2.5" or 3", not sure) and a 1" block for the rear and I have no rubbing issues.

Waiting on a 5" Donahoe Racing lift and other assorted DR goodies right now so I'll definitely have no rubbing soon

Good luck on your level-up. Mine consisted of new leafs and shocks for the front and the rear block mentioned before as the front was actually a little high so the rear needed a block.
