Lift required for 40 Toyo MT's?

I have yet to purchase my dream vehicle (F350, Lariat, Diesel, 4x4, CC, LB, Moonroof) and honestly I won't be purchasing it until late 2016.

Regardless, I'm curious as to the necessary lifts required to run 40s on a 2013 of the above mentioned vehicle.
I've read the 8" won't cut it.
Price won't matter.
I personally like body lifts. Curious as to whether you can run a suspension and a body lift? Seems like it'd be hard to connect the steering elongations and what not to other steering elongations.


Mainly road use. Comfort is enjoyable - must have 40s though.
Durability - I'd definitely prefer it to last the life of the truck.
I'd also rather not have Fx4 as I don't enjoy the emblem. However, it could be worth it - I personally haven't looked into the benefits much. Research for hours or ask a huge group of people who have already done their own research

Thanks for your time and consideration.

I would avoid body lifts and just go all suspension. A 10 inch would definitely give you the clearance but I have seen 40s on just an 8 inch

Thank you.

Why would you avoid body lifts?

Because they are what 17 yr old kids put on toyotas and 1/2 ton trucks.

Body lifts arent available for the diesel variant anyway because of the intercooler plumbing among other things.

But as far as lift heights it all depends on how creative you want to get. You can run 40s on a 4.5 inch lift with cutouts

FX4 doesn't mean the truck is front wheel drive...
It's just a 4x4 truck with different stickers, skid plate, and limited slip differential...

8 or 10" looks the best and fits 40's well , any bigger no

You say that like it's a bad thing, Chillin.
Thanks, Dave.
21, 7.3power.
Layson, I don't like it. I mean - Good suggestion, but my personal preference says that it's too big for the tires.
897.3, the lifts that specify say that they will fit 40's w/ minor trimming. I don't want to trim. Do you have experience with it or did you just research it yourself right-quicklike? - I saw your signature, and that you run 40s, but the 2012-2013 10 inch suspension specifically says you'll have to trim so like..

What chillin is saying is that body lifts are cheap. I've seen rednecks literally use hockey pucks for a body lift.

With the look I think you're wanting, you'll have to trim.

This was about 8-9" on 38s and I had to trim the bottom of the bumper (valance)
