Default 2014 FX4 Supercrew Lift?

Hey Guy's I'm looking to run a 35X12.50 tire with a 18 or 20" wheel as wide as 10-12". I've been researching lift options. I'm told ford changed the lower control arm on the 2014 which limit's my lift options. I talked to pro comp and they said they don't make a coil-over kit for the 2014 and to run a 8-9" wheel on their basic kit. Any body lifted a 2014 , if so what lift /tire combo are you running. Looking at 4-6" lift's specific to 2014. Lift, wheel size, back space, offset? Pics or info would be greatly appreciated !!!!

4" body aal and leveling kit could get you 6". Then add 4 or 6" when they come out with 37" tires

Not going with a body lift, had one on an old jeep and it was hard on the body supports. Thanks' for the reply! I know BDS can be used on this truck but they said they swap out the control arms with a stock 2013 to mount their coilovers.

BDS has a kit now for the 2014 truck. I just ordered one and 20x12 -44 wheels with 35 12.50 mt tires. I will post pics when finished. But your right the 2014 kit is different then the 2013 kit. They make it 4 or 6" I ordered 6". Hope this helps.

You have to post some Pics, that's the same set up i want to run. What wheels / tires are you going to run? I am a little concerned about that size wheel with that much offset. I don't want to do allot of trimming or go any higher than I have to. Where did you purchase your kit? Hope you got a good deal as that coilover set up gets expensive!!! Cant wait to see how it turns out!!!

Thanks I will post pictures everything should be in about two wheels. I ordered 6" bds kit, moto metal 20x12 -44 offset gloss black, toyo 35-12.50-20 MT tires, bushwacker pocket style fender flairs painted to match my black truck, sct tuner, cool air intake, outlaw flowmaster cat back exhaust kit and custom leather for the inside. I hope it turns out well. I had a 2011 fx4 with ecoboost had a lot of problems with it I traded when it had little over 90,000 miles. Being I put a lot of miles on my truck I got a 2014 stx sport 4x4 thought I add what I liked from my last truck. It has auto start, backup camera, auto lights, eletric brakes and avfew things more I dont remember. Sorry this is a long post. And I want to say thanks for everyone that post on this form I have learned a lot..... keep up all the great post and everyone's trucks look great.
