Lightbulb What lift should I run?

Last saturday i bought a 2008 f250 and am already wanting to lift it way up there. So what is the smallest lift that yawll think i can have with 38/15.50/20 tires. Also what are the best brands of lift kits i should consider that isn't going to break the bank. I was thinking the 8" rough country but am not sure.

I would go with an Icon combined with One Up Offroad ALA arms and traction bars. It might be worth your time to call up trucktoyzperformance. They are still a ways from you and are located in McAllen Texas.

It is a spendy setup but well worth it in my opinion. The front link arms actually will increase your turning radius over stock, tighten up your steering, get rid of the factory wander, and keep your steering wheel in check with no bumpsteer. The One Up Offroad traction bars are one of those things that should go on every lifted truck with large tires. They don't affect your suspension travel, don't affect your ride quality, and they get the power to the ground.

To me that is the correct way to lift these trucks. It will drive and perform better than a stock truck. Pretty much everything that it isn't supposed to do... LOL

Trust me, take your time save up your money... it will be worth it.

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
