Any Pics of 3" Lift w/35.12.5/20

Would like to see any pics if you have a 3" lift w/35.12.5/20 wheels and tires. And has anybody had any issues/problems with this setup? Sorry...and I meant to say on a 2011

You don't need a lift for 35x12.5x20. Factory 20's are 34.2 in height and 11.5 wide, so it's really close. Also check out Toyo, BFG and Nitto's 295 width series.

Sorry quess I should of gave a better desc. I currently have 275/70r/18 on a 2011 F250 4x4 crew cab and am thinking of going with 20x9 wheels with Nitto Terra Grapplers 295/60R20. And I thought a 3" lift would look good with this combination so I was curious if anyone had some pictures of this setup or close. Any photos or input would be appreciated..Thanks

I also plan on the same thing.....Ready lift has a 2.5" lift that goes right in for our gassers....there is one member that has it and its just the right amount of lift IMO

3" may make it more susceptible to pointing to the sky with anything in the bed and/or a trailer hooked up to it.

I have a 2.5" readylift kit with 35s (on 18's though). Pics in the thread below:

Matt,
That is a great looking trk also...I originally was looking for the grey but couldn't find what I was looking for. Just curious why you said the 3" might make it more susceptible to pointing to the sky?

Are you installing taller blocks in the back too? If not, raising the front that much might have it sit higher than the rear (especially if you have a 250 as they're almost level stock). Anything you put in the bed would have you sitting like a pre-runner truck (exaggerating, but you get my point).

Ok now I get why you said that....I would do a 3" all the way around..yeh I agree with you, on if a person only put 3" in the front. Thanks for the input. Im new on here and I figured I would get more responses than I have

I had to look in a previous conversation....the member is "RAPR" He actually did a 3.5" lift which is what is made for the 6.7.....I beleive he had to change his front drive shaft to make it work though.

I am not interested into getting into that much work....he suggested the ready lift 2.5" its a straight bolt in......I think it will give me just the right amount of lift for what I am looking for.....I then plan to get some pocket style flares and run some 35"s

Its a lil ways of cause the wife says I gotta wear my stock tires down first and seeing how I have only put 8600 miles on my truck since I bought it in December its gonna be a while

My wife said the same thing ("What's wrong with those tires?!?!" They'll never get it....), so I just aired up to Ford's recommended psi and had some fun skating around on them empty. They'll wear out quickly at that rate, trust me...

Hopefully I can post up pics of my f250 with a 4.5" lift and 35x12.5x18R this weekend. She goes into the shop tomorrow to have a Carli pintop lift put on.
