The Perfect Suspension Lift!

Hey Guys, I have a 06 f350 King Ranch with the 6.0, I am currently running 325/65/18s with the 1.5" RC Coil springs. I am wanting to lift the truck, been looking at the 4",6", 8" suspension lifts. My ideal tire size is 37s, I have had a 6" (pro comp and Rough Country lifts)with 35s on my previous two trucks. Any comments, suggestions or any valuable input is needed to help make my decision easier. I enjoy seeing people's setups but I don't want this to be another post your rig setup with no input kind of conversation. Thank you and any questions just ask!

I cannot recommend the RC myself mainly because I pulled all of it off of my truck because of how bad of a lift it was. If money is not a issue go with a Carli or Pure Performance or Icon. All 3 of those produce high quality lifts that will improve on the handling and ride.
Go with a lift package that upgrades to either a new radius arm or uses a 3 or 4 link for the front axle. In other words if you want a quality lift kit you need to go with a full on lift kit that fully addresses front and rear axles.
Do your research it really comes down to how much your willing to invest into it. My advice is to stay away from the radius arm drop down bracket lift kits at all costs. Save up for a quality lift and you will be glad you did. I'm still working through my truck to get all of the mistakes out of it.
Good luck with it.

Perfect kit would be an Icon kit with OUO ALA arms and OUO traction bars.

You can still tow with your truck and haul whatever you want. It will ride awesome, steer correctly, with no axle wrap.

If I was on a budget I would still go with the Icon. Then you can add everything else later.

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

If you have any questions on our Pure Performance products, let us know. For your truck and tire size, unless you are going glass fenders, we recommend 6" systems for sure. Good luck with your build.
