Hi everyone! I have made it back to almost 60% but that is good as it will get. My F350 has 33x12.50x18 on 18x10 rims. They stick out past the fender well but they are nice and it is very good off road and snow. My problem is it is too much for me to get up in the truck. The leveling kit raised the front end 2 1/2 inches. My question is what new rims and tires will get the truck down but still look good? Do I need to remove the leveling kit? I am going to get rid of my tires and rims and replace them but I do not want small little tires. My Nerf bade are not good for me they look god but I need more to have my feet and I have missed the bars getting in my truck OUCH! And help to get my truck modded to make it work will be a big help.I will die before I give up my Ford!!!!
I recommend keeping the set up you have and trashing the step bars and putting a set of Amp research power steps on it. I have them on my truck and they come out far enough from the body you can step on them like a step and they swing lower than step bars sit. Make getting in a lot easier.
Thank you Phil for the offer. I purchased a 2000 F350 4x4 7.3 with a custom bed on it the truck had 16" tires on it. It was easy yo get in and out. I am getting around better now but the jump is killing me. I just sold that truck now. I just have my 2005 F350. If I remove the Leveling kit I also have to replace the front shocks they are 21/2" longer.. I have Pro-Comp MX-6 shocks that cost $100 each. Then I need new rims @ $225.00 each then tires @ $300.00 each. I have to get the tires under the wheel well for inspection anyway. If I keep it the way it is I will need fender flares and good running boards.Last week I was looking to trade my truck in with the one I also purchased but I can not find anything I like better than my 2005 F350.I also have to say the truck looks good with this set up and drives nice. I am in a mess trying to figure out what to do. I know you guys and I feel good with what you tell me. I do not want to talk to a local speed shop and spend money and get bad results.
