What kind of lift?

Alright guys got a question and need some opinions. Sorry if this has already been posted, but i want to lift my truck up high enough to clear 37's. I dont want it to be stuffed with a little scrubbing and I dont want a huge lift on it.

Bilstein shocks? 2 or 4 in lift? leveling kit?

Its a 12 f250

any pictures or ideas feel free to comment on!

Thanks!

4" Minimum. I have a 2" leveling kit with 35's and there isn't much room left when you go lock to lock under load (compression). 1/4" max and my tires over half worn. Of course if she is going to be an asphalt princess, then maybe you could get by with a 2" leveling kit, trimming and a conservative offset. No way you take it off road though.

Minimum 6" lift for 37s. I've seen a couple 4.5" lifts that don't look horrible but 6" lift looks much better.

I have a 3.5" lift and 35s and I need another inch or 2 lift IMO.

Andrew do you have any pics I can see? I'm also considering a very small lift, 2" or 4" and 3.5" sounds like a good medium. Thanks

Min 6" and they may/will hit the front bumber bracket. We had to trim it and then added a 1" spacer and it's all good now!

Here is a pic of my F250 with 2" of lift and 285/75R18 (35 x 11.50) tires. (Bilstein leveling kit and Ready Lift 4" rear blocks)

Any bigger than a 35" tire and I think you would need more than a 2" lift.
