If I were to install an ICON 2.5" leveling kit on my 06 :icon_ford: F250 and replace the 4" blocks with 5" Fabricated Blocks w/ Built in Bump Stop and add the TEI Relocation Bracket Kit in the front to get an extra 1" of lift in the front and the back, what else would I need for the kit? Do I need to worry about getting the Adjustable Pan Rod Bar? I don't want to go up to the 4.5" kit but want just that extra lift to make the truck sit an extra inch; so I guess it would be a 3.5" kit that I would be trying to make. If you think this is a bad idea :doh:eek:r can't be done:dunno: or think that it can be done:nod:, I would appreciate any advice and help. If there are any other parts that I am leaving out please feel free to list them. Thanks a lot.

I would definitely get the adjustable trac bar if you are looking to stretch it to a 3.5" lift.

This will cause the caster to be slightly more negative than it would be at a 2.5" lift (more caster is better....too a point).

Would the casters that come with the 2.5" Icon Leveling Kit fix the caster problem? I contacted ICON and they said that it shouldn't be any problem and that caster should stay in the positive. So I'm not sure on what to do. Any suggestions. Do you think that this is a bad idea. Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it.

The 3.5" will have a more negative caster than a 2.5".
By negative I don't mean that the setting will be an actual negative number, just not as positive as it would be at 2.5" of lift.

It can be done though...I wouldn't call it a bad idea, just not the ideal setup.
