Carli Pin Top 2.5

Ok posted this on another forum and got nadda. A new '13 is on order (see signature). It is killing me having to wait. So to pass the time I am researching what to do with it when I get it.

First off, this is my first diesel and will be my first lift. After researching for the past couple of days I think I have narrowed it down to the following:
Carli Pin Top 2.5 suspension kit
Carli Full Spring Pack
Carli Hi-Mount Steering Stabilizer
17 X 9 Wheels (undecided on which ones)
Nitto Mud Grappler Tires 37/1350/17
AMP Research PowerStep
I will install this myself so any advice / opinions would be greatly appreciated. If any one has the same or similar setup I would particularly be interested in your comments and pictures!

If this will be your daily driver I would reconsider getting the mud grapplers that is one of the loudest tires you can get right after super swampers

Agreed, pick a different tire. Everything the Carli kit will achieve, that tire will kill. As far as the Carli system, it is simple to install, just takes some time...... but , you will not regret it . Only problem being, you'll never go with any other lift but them. Man , I wish they did 04's !!!!

I agree with the others that you should look at different tires. My personal favorite are the Toyo MT's which I currently run on my Dodge. I run the 37" Hankooks on my Ford but I will end up changing those to Toyo's in the near future as well.

Other than that you have an awesome build list and I look forward to an end user's comment's on that kit with 37's and 17's.

Let me know if you have any questions on those items since we are Carli's biggest dealer.

Toyo MT's it is. Thanks everyone!

Now I have another issue, I am being told by a friend (self-proclaimed diesel performance nut) that 17's may not work on the 2013's due to the larger calipers? He is strongly suggesting to go with 20's to be safe. Argh!

Most 17 will fit bigger the wheel the worse the ride

check with george, 8 lug truck gear.... the inside design of the barel will be critical for clearence. some wheel manufactures use different step in the barrel. i have had some wheels fit a vehicle and the same diameter not clear due to this issue.

Ford still shows 17" wheels as a factory option on the 2013's so you should be fine.
