Finally got the leveling kit in

Geez I was supposed to have this in last spring but work has kept me busy. Finally took some vacation time and got the thing in. I love when they tell you "It will only take 5-6 hours to install" when in reality it takes 2.5 days and a torn off finger nail before you can shoehorn in a 4.5 inch lift in the front of an 03 F350.

Now the damn truck is level at least. Now i just need to get some big ass tires to go with. I'm think 37's will prolly look real nice on Betsie.

Pics coming later.

Axe.

Good job but 37's will rub major with only a 4.5" lift.

2001 F350 CC SWB 6spd....currently getting a complete 'makeover'. Stay tuned.

Are you sure?

I am running MT ATZ 35's on stock 20's on my 06 F-250 with no level or lift kit without any rubbing issues.

Pretty much. The OP has an 03 which means he has a leaf spring suspension. Your 06 has coils. Whole different animal.
