Thanks to all the people who helped me to get my truck ordered and answered all my noobie questions. I have the truck now with less than 1000 miles driven on it. It is awesome. My only two complaints so far are that it goes into regen every 75-90 miles and there are not any child seat anchors. My fuel mileage is lower than I had hoped (prol because of the frequent regens).

Here are some pics. I had a 2.5" Ready Lift Stage II leveling kit installed, 20x9 Moto Metal 959's, Nitto Trail Grappler 295/65R20 and Amp Research power steps.

The truck is a 2011 F-350 CC, Sterling Grey, Black leather interior, Short Bed, 6.7L Diesel, Lariat, 4x4, Camper Package, factory spray in bedliner, 3.55 gears, electronic shift on the fly. I went with the Black leather interior with the 2-tone seats. While waiting for the truck to arrive I had heard that they were going to do away with the 2-tone seats and only offer monotone. I had originally wished I had just waited for the monotone because I wasn't sure if I liked the dual tone....I am SO GLAD I got the 2-tone, though. It matches the exterior color perfect and ties it all in.

There is no rubbing at all on the tires. If you look at the front diver side wheel well, you will see that there is some trimming in there from the factory. The tire would slightly rub if it were not pre-cut from the factory. I have no rubbing going over bumps. I have not put a load on it, nor have I had it offroading.

Let me know if anybody has any questions. I am adding more pics to this thread (limit is 5 per post). Click the pics to see them larger.

NICE... I like the power steps. I almost wish I would not have ordered the steps from the factory and got those instead.

Congrats.

Just got done reading the other thread about Leveling Kit problems. How does your truck drive/feel/ride after the change compared to before? I have my tires/wheels on order and I'm trying to decide what kit to go with.. the ICON 2.5 Stage 1 or the Ready Lift Stage 2.

I drove the truck for a day with the leveling kit and the stock tires. I did not notice much of a difference in ride with this set-up. Once I got the new wheels/tires installed I can tell the ride feels a little stiffer. It's not bad at all though, but not as soft as the factory ride. The Ready Lift keeps your stock springs/shocks...that is why I went with it because I wanted to keep as factory of a ride as possible.

Overall, the wheels/tires effected the ride more so than the lift. I wouldn't go back, though...

I am taking my rig back in to get the alignment done. THe steering wheel sits between the 12:00 and 1:00 position.

If you go with the REady Lift kit, make sure you get the stage II for the track bar relacation bracket.

The XD Badlands are awesome, too. I had a real hard time deciding between the Moto Metal 959s and XD Badlands. In the end, I only chose the 959s because they had a little better weight capacity. Otherwise, it was a coin toss.

Your truck looks great it looks like what I have on order. I am glad you posted those picts I have looking at the same tire and wheel combo. You mentioned your gas mileage is not that good what are you getting?

Thanks for the reply Mills. After speaking with Mac from ICON today I went ahead and ordered the ICON 2.5" Stg 1 kit with the addition of their adjustable pan-rod bar to square the axle back up. The kit comes with 4 of their high quality shocks and instead of spacers they include 2.5" taller dual-rate front springs. It's more money, and I think the Readylift kit is a great kit too... I guess I just wanted to be a little different and try the ICON out. I was also very impressed by the fact that I was able to get info from a very knowledgable Tech within a few seconds of calling.

I ended up ordering the 20x9 AR ATX Crawl wheels for mine with Nitto Trail Grappler 295/65R20's. I'll try to get some pics up when it's all together in a few weeks. They are going on an F250 CC SB Lariat in White Platinum.

Your truck looks great. Smart choice on the readylift. I was looking at other spacer kits and then a light popped on my head that seems like spacers only would limit the suspension. I'm thinking about doing the same kit on my dually. Probably won't get much bigger tires but will give it a bigger stance. (Really 1.5" would per perfect for me but haven't seen many kits that size that have all the good components.)

Do you think there is enough room in the rear to clear tire chains? Front?
