Default Leveled f250

Just purchased a 2019 f250 6.7. Looking to level it with new wheels and tires. Thinking 20inch rim's and 35's or 37's. Anyone have pics of there leveled f250 on 35's or 37's?

Possibly considering lifting it 6 inches also. I'm torn on a level or 6 inch lift.

My stock ford350 fit 35x12.5x20
I wouldn’t put any more money in to a jacked up truck “ but I am a old man and don’t want a ladder to get in my truck “
IMO a 6 inch and towing don’t make good judgment

I’ve got some 22” wheels with 37” Nitto ridge grapplers for sale if you’re interested.

Doing some google searching and these trucks look real nice on a 6 inch lift. Kinda leaning that way. Most of my guys that work for me do all the heavy hauling but on occasion I have to pick up a heavy load. Other then that it's just a 24 foot bay boat and a 16 foot lowboy with four wheeler and feed to and from deer lease.

Thanks.
If you go with just a level I strongly suggest stepping up to 3” with the control arm drops instead of the 2 or 2-1/2” spacer kits. The dropped control arm corrects castor angle and makes the truck drive significantly better with much less chance of death wobble.

From the research of done I'm leaning to the 6 inch bds lift. Going to call around to a few places in the houston area in the morning.

Think some fox shocks should help with the ride. I was planning on going that route.

See my post above. You lost castor angle and now it wanders the road needing constant correction. I had this on my 15, I went with 3” with drop control arms on my 17 and it drives better than stock

You might look at their 4inch suspension lift. You can run 37s and it looks better IMO.

IMO 37's are perfect. Nitto makes a 37x11.50 now which helps with rolling resistance vs a 12.50 for running on the street.

Go Carli. But the fox shocks they come with will make the truck ride even stiffer.

37 Nitto ridge grapplers with 2.5" lift up front and 1.5" taller rear block. I have a fuel tank and toolboxes so my truck squatted a little in the rear and I hate the running uphill look.

The second pic is with 295/65R20, and they didn't rub like the 37's do.

Question Curious why

Curious! I had a stock f350 with 35/12.5/20 tires ( they seemed huge and I returned to 275/65/20)
Why is everyone lifting/leveling is it performance needs?
Or vanity needs?
With the fords cratering with death wobble I know L/L only makes it even worse
Why spend $5000-$6000 that could possibly expose you to huge liability when insurance denies any coverage
I am a old middle age guy and don’t see any advantage in any situation
Just curious not judging ( it’s your money)

all I know is that the bigger rims your get the more $$$$ the tires are. The higher you lift the truck the less towing capabilities it has. Some peoples trucks are just pavement pushers and never/hardly see dirt roads or pull anything.

My opinion, I like having decent sidewall on my tires because it takes bumps better and I don't have to worry about messing a rim up if I scrap something. I had mine with a leveling kit on it and it worked great and looked good also. everyone has their own desires though. good luck to you

A good quality lift/level does not make death wobble worse or more probable.

I’ve got a 17’ 350 SRW on 37s. I’ve had over 21k behind it with no issues maintaining highway speeds or control. I regularly have 14-17k behind it without issue either. My truck is stock height though.

Well I decided to go with a 6 inch fab tech and fox shocks. Still looking for the right wheel and tire combo. Texas performance and off road gave me a few different ones to pick from in there package deal they are running.

Dont have pics but i did a 3/1 level kit on my F250 (3" in front, 1" in back) with 35's and it was perfect. Sat about the same height as a half ton pickup with a 6" lift.

If you're spending $5k-$6k on a level kit, i have some oceanfront property in AZ you might be interested in.....

Think mine installed was around $400-$500 plus the cost of new tires which i needed anyways. Also, doesn't change insurance coverage whatsoever. This is not a suspension lift, just a simple level kit.

I had to google it up lift + install = $4000
Didn’t look at shocks and tires would think add $2000

I've had 3 of these trucks, my current one is leveled on 35s and stock wheels. I use my bed a lot and didn't want it too high. 37s look better.

My brother has the 6" BDS 4 link kit. Very nice, rides very smooth as well. If you go with a 6" I'd go BDS for sure. There are several nice 4" kits too. Maxxed Performance in Baytown did my truck and I have been very happy.

I agree here and think that 20's are fine especially for the cost of tires. The jump to 22 inch rims is just dumb IMO
