Let me see your lifted F350's!

Hey guys, I am going to be installing a 4" inch Rough Country lift and putting 35 inch tires on my truck soon, but I want to see other guys lifts on their F350's, I am hoping this will give me a clearer vision on what it might look like. Thanks guys!

Here is my 97 F350 with a 6" Skyjacker lift, and 37" tires. If you haven't purchased the lift yet, my advice would be to stay away from the Rough Country stuff. If you do some research around here you will find stories of sagging springs and lesser quality parts. (IMHO)

Nice truck loss!

I agree with him too about Rough Country. I had one of their setups on my 87 Suburban and it sucked. Spring sagged after six months and I ended up getting custom stuff made at a local spring shop.

Looks good, I think you do need a bigger tire tho. I fit them on my stock F350. I dont like too much gap. Its the way I am. I do love ur truck so dont take it the wrong way.

Your truck is ill! That is perfect looking, did u go with Skyjacker? And did u use have to upgrade your sway bar links, and did you add a single or dual stabilizer link? Also, what gearing are you running?

Heres big black, my 96 f-350 . I dont know what type of lift it has. But I do know that the previous owner swapped ouy the spring hangers front to rear to give it 1 1/2in more lift in the front. It is sittin on Dick Cepek 35's.

35's with just a leveling kit. Not as pretty as most, but it is a work truck, after all .

Ah no offense taken, I did have a difficult time deciding on the 37x13.50's, I really love the way 40's look on these trucks, but I needed a decent highway tire so this fit my needs a little better. To my surprise though, they measure a little over 38" tall, so not too bad.

Yes it is a Skyjacker; I did not upgrade the sway bar links. They are a bit of a stretch to get back into place, but it can be done. I went with dual steering stabilizer shocks, which I think are definitely necessary for these trucks, they tend to have a bit more play in the steering than the newer ones. The gears are 4.10, which is really reduced to about a 3.55 (maybe slightly higher) with the bigger tires. I don't mind the higher gearing, it helps out alot at higher speeds, and the diesel has plenty of power, so it isn't too bad. I'd love to re-gear, but that's pretty far down on the list at this point.
