Need 12" lift kit!

Hi, I am looking for a 12-14" lift kit for a 2003 F-250 4x4.


Thanks James



Edit: Installing will not be a problem as my dad works for ford right across the allie as the only diesel mechanic there.

40 or 44's I would run a 5.12 gear if not maybe a little bigger gear.

4.88's are actually perfect for 40's...

I'm not sure what the next one up is that a Dana 60/Sterling 10.25 will support. - it might be 5.38? which wouldn't be that bad with 44's or 46's....

5.13 5.13
5.38 5.38

highest matching set of gears I can find... the sterling 10.5" axle is the limiting factor - the dana 60 front supports up to 7.17 gears!!!!
