I recently installed a 6" lift on my 2000 F250 2wd 7.3 Crew Cab long bed. The kit is supposed to clear a 315 with minor trimming but I don't want to change my gearing when I tow. I will be running a 285 or 295. My only complaint is the truck not sitting level. There might be some people that like the pre-runner look but I don't.


1. 6" Fabtech Basic Kit
2. 3" blocks that came with the kit (Fabtech seems to likes the pre-runner look)
3. Fabtech Performance shock
4. I'm looking at Hankook Dynapro MT 285/75/16
5. I think I have 4.10's
6. Self install
6a. Took my time and replaced all front end parts while I had it apart. Ball joints, axle pivot bushings, radius arm bushings, etc. Lift install was the easy part, pivot bushings kicked my butt.
7. My truck rides smoother now. I don't like the rear of the truck sitting lower. I will be installing a taller block so that it sits level.
8. I would have liked a taller block to be included.
9. About $1100

Just be glad you didn't end up with the mess I did BDS is the biggest pile lift I ever had then they lie about tire clearance and warranty! I wish I had fab tech just buy some different blocks and your set!
