how much lift do i need?

how much lift do i need to run 37x13.50 tires on an '08 F450?

yes this truck is a dully, and the wheels will be 22's or 24's, not that it matters, and the tires will be toyo open country m/t.

i am looking at either a kelderman 4" lift or a fab tech 6" lift, thoughts and comments?

to tell you the truth I wouldn't go with either, go with rize or icon (use to be DR) They have pricy lifts but they are the nicest. And you'll need atleast 6 inches

as for wheels go with american force

Forgot about Rize and DR
They do have one of the best SD lifts

I love my DR setup with Deaver's in the rear rides like a Lincoln believe it or not

Lift

Go with the fabtech. If its in your budget look inti the four link kit. I put one into a customers truck with the 2.25 dirtlogics. Rode like a dream for being a solid axle. The customer beats the snot out of his truck and everything is still working well. I'd like to take a rip in one with the same kit bbut with the 4.0 dirt logic coilovers.
