Tim's 2012 F250 Carli Pintop Build

Decided to start a new thread...

After 13 hours of work, I have the whole thing installed. The number one thing that would have helped is the right tools for the job. Trying to improvise wasted a lot of time, as did multiple runs to the store for sockets, etc.

Anyway, on to the part you care about...

Quality parts...




Don't ask...




I can tell you that putting my truck this far in the air for hours on end scared the hell out of me.


Shock on




How's that for stock vs. lifted?


Backing out to turn it around for the rear


It doesn't exactly clear 37s, as everyone said it would. It rubs hard at even minor wheel turn. Not full lock, like half of full lock. I ground that part down to give me maybe a quarter inch of clearance.





I am beat and sore... but the whole thing is exactly as I wanted it to be.

Next day photos...

Front shot showing how much the tires stick out.

My 37s clear fine. Nitto trail grapplers on 20 inch Bmf novakanes with 5 in back spacing and 0 offset but I did have to space the front bumper forward about .25 with 2 spacers I made to go behind the bumper bolts.

Looks good and sounds like you got the wrong backspacing on the wheels. fitting 37's even on a 6" lift requires the right backspacing.

Looks good, but did you not have the truck blocked up while you were under it? Never trust a jack like that.
