I have just recently purchased a 2014 F-350 Platinum Superduty.I am thinking on installing a 4.5" lift, and am wondering on is which lift is the best to go with?
Carli or Icon? was planning on running the 22" American Force Justice wheels and either a 35" Nitto or Toyo tires, possibly 37" if there are no clearance or rubbing issues. The truck will be driven 90% highway use.

Thanks.

Hey upnsmoke, I just bought same truck from Cam Clark ford! I have done a lot if research on running 37" with 4.5 lift if you do a factory offset wheel you can squeeze 37" but American force has nothing close in a stock offset! I think I'm going to go 6" with 37 toyos

i have a 6" lift on my 2012 f350. i got very little rub on my 37's. it could be the offset of my rims. you could clear 35's with just a leveling kit. i have yet to see 37's on a 4.5" lift. most guys put 6 to 8 inch lifts with 37's.

Icon or Pure Performance 4 link kit...if your looking for the best ride quality.
37" will clear a 4" Pure lift..

It also depends on the tire and rim chosen, width and backspacing.

We are a dealer for both, PM me if I can help.

My wheels are 22x10 -13 offset so I think I'm stuck to do a 6" lift? So don't know what 4" kit will clear 37" with that wheels with that offset

Isn't that 5" if so Pure Performance kit will work.

Carli's 4.5" kit is closer to 5.5" of lift. They were nearly an inch taller only swapping from icon 4.5" springs to carli 4.5's. I have 37's and 20x10s with 4.5" back spacing with carli 4.5 springs and 1.5" tei spacer and scrub slightly when at full lock in reverse and hit a hole or something.

37s on 22x10s AF wheels (with -24 offset I think, whatever the smallest offset is) clear on 5.5"...Icon 4.5" plus 1" tei spacer

I run 37's on a 20x9 with a 0 offset on a 4.5 icon lift. Got the tei spacer and traction blocks going in to go to a 22x10 rim on 37's like JayZ

I will not be running the truck off road. So will i need an expensive high end kit to obtain the best possible highway ride. I only want to lift the truck about 4-1/2" to 6" max. The price is not really an issue. Just curious if I can get a nice plush ride better than stock, without the high end off road kits. Being that the truck will not be driven off road. It will be pulling a 28' enclosed trailer several times a year, so sag, with thew added hitch weight may be another concern. Maybe have to install air bags to address that issue.
