Leveled DRW Owners, What Are You Running?

I apologize if this has been discussed, but search function didn't turn much up. Planning to level my F350 DRW. Curious how other folks have done it. Mostly like to know what size tires people are running, and what type of spacer between the rear tires. All other info (level size, brand, etc) is very welcome. Pics would be awesome. I'm leaning toward 35's on the stock wheels. Thanks everyone.

What are you going to be pulling? Mine gets leveled by the 25K gooseneck livestock trailer that it pulls. I would be concerned that if you level and put a load on (you do have a dually) you will be nose high.

Fred’s spacers are the best i have found. Ran them for 200k miles on my 3500 dmax.

I pull same thing. Cow trailer and a flatbed for equipment. Haven't installed hitch yet, so I'm not sure how much it'll sag. But as another poster mentioned, I usually install airbags if needed.

What size rear spacers would it take to run 35x12.50s?

Is that what most people with bigger tires are running on duallies, or something smaller? I've seen a few leveled duallies around town with tires that look a little smaller, bit still look damn good. Maybe just a bit narrower?

Thanks again.

I'm running 34/10.5R17 on stock rims, no spacers.
its a 16 but you get the idea.

Yes I down graded to a D range from E. But it only equates to a couple hundred pounds.

Truck rides great. Even at lower pressure (non-load) no touch. Are they close , yes. I may look at a .5" spacer some time.

I will.post a photo or two later.

Only what I've read on the forums. I'm thinking the readylift 2.5" seems pretty popular. I might block or add airbags to the rear later. I plan to keep the stock wheels and run something like a 35 12.50, but a bit less wide.I'm looking around at some other poster's trucks, and damn they look good.

seen a level dually couple weeks back and honestly it looked awful. would hate to see it with 25k trailer. popping a wheely would be a huge understatement
