Default Anyone with a Lifted F350 Dually

Thinking about a lift kit for my 03 F350 crew cab dually. What lift do you have what size tires. How does it affect the handling, the ride etc. when towing a big boat.

If you are going to tow a big boat leave it stock. Most big tires you will have to run a spacer in between the rear wheels and that kills your gvrw.

I agree. I borrowed a friends Dodgr dually that was lifted to pull my boat to Florida last year. The thing tracked like a nitemare. If your towing leave it stock.

I tow #18,000, totally stock. Works for me. Looking to go with a F650 if the right deal comes along.

YOU can get some 22.5 Alcoas with some 255/70/22.5 Yokohama 507s(which are about 37" tall)and put any lift you want...Would I do it to my Dually? Nope! If you want to lift it and go the super swamper route you won't be able to tow anything more than a jetski safely....If I were in your shoes I would even out the front end and put some 22.5s on and be happy.

the FS507 is a Firestone, Yoke would be a RY023, [SIZE=4]
I lowered mine instead of lifting!!

There is a black one running around here that I'm going to try to get a picture of. I've never seen one this big and as well done as this one. TONS of suspension mods and who knows what else. I'm also going to try to get a pic of how the guy gets in the thing
