Lift kit for 35" tires on F250

Fellas,
I would like some input for a lift on my truck. I am currently all stock. I want to run 35" tires without them rubbing. I am not looking for anything crazy, I would like to be able to run those tires without getting a crazy lift, just want to beef up the look without sacrificing quality of ride. I am not familiar with types of lifts or how they are done. I did call around and a few folks mentioned that a leveling kit would best, to do hat they said they would raise the tuck 2.5" in the font (not sure how) and 1" in the rear oh blocks.

What y'all think? Anyone out there running 35" on a f250 (2003-2007) with a similar setup? Would luv to see some pics

Thanks, would luv to hear any suggestions:

What year truck do you have, because 2005 and later have coil springs in front rather than leaf springs. That makes a difference on how you lift it and what it costs.

You should be able to run 35's with no lift, but a level kit will give you some added room.

2.5 leveling kit from ready lift works great on mine, i have 35/12.50/18 toyo m/t. I did have to cut some of my inner plastic fender but not too much . i think it has to do with my rims.

I run the metric equivalent of 35's BFG A/T K/O 315/70/r17. I have an 05 F250 with no lift and they fit fine with no rubbing but the ride quality sucks. It feels like I'm riding in a Sherman tank on most city streets

I have leaf springs so I can't speak from experience, but Stumpbuster is telling you what most coil spring owners say.

That sounds like bad shocks or too much air in tires.

My tires are not over inflated but i do think the shocks need to be replaced. It still has those wanna be Ranchos that come with the FX4 package. Only had the truck 6wks and haven't done anything to it except for tinting the windows

I also run metric equilivants of 35s with no lift kit and ride is very good. No rubbing and the tires are bfg A/Ts.
