2014 F-350 SRW Leveling Kit

Need some help here. Im a new Ford Super Duty owner and Im debating on what would be my best option. I want to put a leveling kit on my truck, but I also would like it to have a slight rake because of pulling my boat. I'm wanting to put a set of 295/65/20 on the factory rims.

Ive always had 2500HD trucks in the past, so I know a 2.5"/1" set-up is perfect for them. I've looked at the Readylift SST kit (part # 69-2511TP). I am sorta worried about the 5" block in the rear. My F-350 has a 3.5" factory block, from what Ive gathered from reading on the internet, that kit is designed for a F-250/F-350 with the 2" factory blocks. My main concern is the tail sitting to high. It would give it a 2.5"/1.5" height increase. Should I look at just the front end with a 2.5" kit and order 1" blocks for the rear from Icon?

Has anyone used this set-up of have something different?

Thanks for your help..

I had the same issue when I leveled my truck. I started with the same kit that you are thinking but wasn't happy with the tail high stance that it had when I was done so I went back and ordered the 1" kit with the drop brackets so now I have 3.5" in front with 5" block in the rear. Truck sits level now. I added Rancho RS9000 shocks as well. Have been very happy with the kit.

You could always run one of the 2.5" Carli systems but keep your F350 block as opposed to using an F250 block. That should give you a rake around 1.5-2" like factory.
