    Yeah... I was thinking maybe do the 3" only with 37's being my next set of tires, and then the next set of tires, do 38's and add the 2.5" spacers and aal. I was concerned that adding the spacers would add too much stress on the front end (so I've heard of this)... whatcha think? Also, so you think the 37x 15.5's would be fine under just the 3"? I'm wanting to make sure my tires don't look to little from the side profile. Can't stand a skinning tire look inside a wheel well that "appears" to have too much clearance in the well around the tires. Appreciate your opinion on this.. whatcha think?

    My bad bud I been away for abit. Alright,, so you want to throw on the body lift only? I ask why? Why not get the extra inches from the spacer and aal. Theyre pretty cheap. Without that yes the 38x15.50s wil rub. The 37s you will be fine. And will still be badass but you very rarely see F150s on 38x15.50s. But with gas prices going through the roof right now I could understand being satisfied with the 37s or maybe wating awhile until gas goes back down?

    Hey bud I see the thread you have. I have exactly what you had in mind at first. 38x15.50x18 under 11.5 total inches. I have a 2.5" spacer and 2" aal in the rear on top of the 9 inches. to have plenty of space.. If your goin to go bigger. Go BIGGER right? CHeck out my garage to see my truck and hit me up if you have any questions.

    truck looks killer man! ill be putting the procomp on my 2wd in about a month, cant wait. you have anymore pics of it?? any from the side?? also, did you keep the block that came with the kit or did you get one that was bigger?

    sure thing. but i just want to know what you meant by it was hard to get a fabtech lift kit where you live. it doesnt matter where you live, the company ships everything to you. its just the shop your doing it at must not want to do it for you or something

    my lift came with a 2" block. i just got a 3" block to add one lift. it rides better than an add-a-leaf. a buddy i work with has add-a-leaf and it rides like crap unless your towing a heavy load. I got a 3" spacer in the front, but it wont work with the procomp. that guy from my work has exactly the lift your looking at getting. its your decision, i just feel that fabtech is better all around as far as looks and ride. the only down side to having the leveling spacers in the front is the ride is a bit stiffer. i cant imagine how bad it would be with that plus an add-a-leaf tho.

    hey man sorry for getting back to you so late. its been awhile Anyway my profile picture is just with a 6 inch fabtech by itself. and when i had that lift on there, my 35 inch tires did rub on the wheel-well on the side closest to the doors. i had to cut away about half an inch with a die-cutter. its fine now. my rims are 18" but im not sure the width. my tires are the nitto all terrain tires. the size is LT325/65R18. Now about the way my truck is currently:
    I have the 6" fabtech suspension lift. But now i put on a 3" leveling spacer in the front and i took the 2" blocks in the back that came with the fabtech lift and replaced them with a 3" block. Soo, the front has a 9" lift over all and the back has a 7" so my truck is star gazing a little bit. the only problem with getting the leveling spacer and bigger blocks is that you need to get steering stabilizers. luckily i went with the fabtech lift kit because the only steering stabilizers available are made to fit with the fabtech lift.
