leveling kit

Got a 01 f250 4x4 extended cab that I want to lift. What's a good size to get.

Welcome to FTE.

Pretty generic question. My truck works pretty well with a 3.5" level in the front and 35" tires.

I think you probably need a 15" lift and some 48" Michelin XML's.

Or something in between.

8" lift on 38s was impractical now I'm running a 6" lift on tiny 35s and its useable but still not perfect for a DD. If I had to do it again I would go 4" lift on 35s. That way it's enough to fill the wheel wells and look good. Plus still usable in every situation. With the 8" lift my SD measured 7'-4". With a 6" lift and not an SD on 35s my dodge measures 7'-2". Both measurements from the ground to the highest point of the cab.

265/75R-16 stock size tires.

I did not go big because I didn't want to adversely affect towing a 5er.
