i dont care for rough country, i think their kits are cheaply built and the springs dont ride very nice.
but here is my 250 on 6 inch's and 35's

My name is Harley and I'm new to the site and new to the diesel world. I just got a 97 250 EC LB. What kind of camber adjustments (ball joint eccentric?) would you need to make with a 4in lift kit?

Here is a before and after shot. I agree about the Rough Country comments, Skyjacker is top quality. 6" lift w/ 37" tires and 16x10 Welds

Hey there missy, Glad you got rid of the billet grill. She's lookin great now.
lossscause, that's pretty much where i'd like to end up with my rig. only with a 4" and cutout flares in the front. Similar rubber too.
Epd444, what size tires and lift do you have?? Those are pretty beefy.

Why stop at 4 or 6 inches?

I had both....but couldn't stop. Didn't stop at 9 or 12 either....................

20 inches later:

Believe me I would LOVE to go bigger (my trucks not my daily driver) but my friend has the exact same truck and he had 9'' lift with 39's (he could have cleared bigger tires easily) and he got alot of tickets.
Ended up bringin it down a few inches and on 38s now.

WOW! cleatus, those are huge!!!! Mine is my family car and hauler as well, so that does limit me. I'll be going with 37's eventually.

i only have an add a leaf so i cant participate with pics, but i have some advice on the tc lifts. my brother has an f250 just like the one i my sig but w/ a 6" lift. the ride sucks, leafs are sagging, drop brackets are starting to tear. thats the quality you get with cheaper stuff. now granted the previous owner prolly did some wheeling, but still...go with a skjacker

I'm also plannin on a 4" lift for my F-250. What tire size do you guys recommend? I got 4:10 gears and am puttin on some fender flares as a rust fix. What looks more proportional, 33's or 35's (probably BF Goodrich A/T)? Just tryin to get some opinions.
