What's up PSn!

Alright so I own a 95 f250 7.3 eclb with the twin I beam. I want to lift it 4-6"... I know skyjacker makes the kit for it to be done.
I was wondering If anyone here has done it and if I could get your opinion on some pros and cons with a lift kit like that. All the feedback is greatly appreciated. Here's a pic of my 95dinosaur

I don't recommend it.

What are you trying to accomplish?
Just to get some height really. My previous truck was also a 95 and it had a 6 inch kit. But it was 4x4. The truck looks so much better lifted.. the 2wd I have now is a daily driver/work truck. There wont be any goofing off in the woods with this thing. Just looking for a nice stance with some 35s under it

I would recommend doing a SAS before spending money on the I beams.

The lift from skyjacker doesn't require longer I beams. It's just drop brackets for the radius arm and axle pivot
I know, I would just hate to put money into an I beam suspension at all.

SAS on a 2WD makes even less sense to me than a lift.

I was thinking even the mono-beam axles out of the 05+ 450/550s, but if you ever want to convert to 4wd, even at a later date, the axle is already there 🤷‍♂️

what about using later taller wheels and tires? the 95's have 16" rims and the later model fords have 18 and 20"????
Yes. And Nope I'm keeping my stock Alcoa's...but that has nothing to do with my capabilities of running a bigger tire.

@95dinosaur keep the post updated on what you decide to do. Im wanting to add a big larger tire myself but not sure what direction Im going to go
So I plan on putting a 2" leveling kit back on. I had it on once before but the shop didnt know how to get the alignment right. I called this place that says they can get it done. I also got 35s to stuff underneath. I'll post a pic when it's done and let you know all the trimmings and stuff I did to make it work.

I did a 2" leveling kit when I still had beams, and i was able to align it myself with concentric bushings, but it needed so much adjustment that the knuckle rubbed the inside of the beam and I had to sand quite a bit to make it clear. Just be aware.

Well thank you for that. Might just second guess the level and go for the bigger lift lol

Just did the leveling kit today. I stuffed 35s on it. Love the way it looks and rides. It's not that bad. I guess all trucks are different. My alignment is pretty good and only had to trim the bumper slightly on the inside.
