Question 2006 4" Dually lift

Hi Guys !

I just bought my f350 and looking to do a 4" lift allowing me to add 35inch tires ... However every site i go to doesnt state the kits will work with Dually's

I guess im asking for a specific kit you have used or are using ...
Spacer sizes for the rear 35/12.5/17
I was going to use the TOYO Open Country A/T II 35X12.50R17 121R E10 BLK Due to the 10 ply tires I will be towing a 20ft enclosed trailer , Bumper pulled

I would love to see your pics and hear about your experiences with certain products ... I only want to do this once and do it right !

Thanks in advance !

You can run a 35" tire on a 2.5" lift. We have several customers doing so. For rear spacing, 1.5" comes to mind but I'm not 100% sure so I'll let a dually expert chime in on that one. Our leveling kits come with everything you need to correct alignment and recenter the front geometry while adding travel and cleaning up the ride quality!

We offer front kits and front and rear kits in 2.5" lift configurations to suit your budget. If you'd like more info or have any questions, feel free to PM me or ask them in here!

On my 07 I ran a 4.5 inch lift with 35x12.50s and it looked great. I made sure to lift the rear to keep it level and 2.5 inch spacers. I also ran 36x13.50 IROKS on this set up as well and pulled my 24ft gooseneck without issue. Hope this helps

How is the Turning on the 2.5 How bad is the rub and how much will I have to cut out ..> Would a 4.5 be better ?

The only 2.5" kit that is currently available and tuned is the Pintop 2.5". That is what i run on my personal truck. As for the tuning, it's amazing on the street and can keep up in the dirt. As for lift height, only you can decide what's going to work for you. I personally like the 2.5" for function and 4.5" for aesthetics.

Triming will be inner fender liner.

Thanks ! I have also been looking at a 6inch kit .... However it really is only for aesthetics and I do still need to use the bed lol ... Being a 5'10" tall guy I would need a ramp or ladder to access the back ! I do however wonder how the towing is effected on a lift this tall ?

Thanks OCV for your responses ! And lifted dually do you have any pics of your old rig ?

if you purchase our kit and use the add-a-pack, you maintain factory payload capacity. The 4.5" isn't extreme and i find most do not have issues working out of their trucks. If it is going to be worked out of, i recommend the 2.5". Here's what mine looks like with the 2.5"



Next to the owner's 4.5"

Also the Dually takes a different block then the srw ... This is what causes the problem with buying a kit .... There seems to be no Dually Kits out there .... The add a packs with Carli is nice what are the costs on this for the 2.5 vs the 4.5 Again this is mostly for Aesthetics ... The truck will be worked 90% on roads so I dont want to go crazy and add a ton of stuff I really dont need . I have looked at so many kits and I am impressed with Carli im glad you reached out Thanks !
