Default 2016 F250 w/ snow plow package and leveling kit

Anyone level their superduty with snow plow package? How much lift was used to level?

Try the Rough Country 2" Ford Leveling Spacers. They're cheap, work awesome and are simple to install. With the 1.5" kit, you will get a tiny bit of squat in the front. I will try an dig up a pic of my '11 with the 1.5" kit, it had the prep package.

We used the RC 1.5" coil spring upgrade kit they offered and ended up taking them off and just using the spacers with the stock springs instead.
I have a ready lift 2.5 leveling kit sitting in the box but was unsure about putting it on.

Others could say better on the 2.5" kit, but I know that the 2" kit will get you sitting level. IDK how to attach pics otherwise I would.

I was waiting for that! Its not delivered yet but is on its way. Purchased from the south being brought up north. I bought a leveling kit really cheap just because the box was opened, couldn't pass it up. If it wont work, I can always sell it. Was wondering if 2.5" was too much for a truck with snow plow package?

This trend seems to be getting more and more common. Where I work, every year we see less XL/XLT trucks coming in for plows and more Lariat/Platinums. 2-3 years later they will trade them off and swap all the equipment over to the new model. Amazes me, however the demand is so high for the used top trims that dealers will pay top dollar..

Because people are plowing with their daily driver....? They can only have one truck, so they want it to be a nice one. Pretty simple.

I plow with a regular cab beater but I see the appeal. Personally I don't want limbs hitting the truck or the danger of crunching up a nice truck if I skid in to something (or something skids into me) but some people don't care.

If you plow roads or parking lots there's also less risks to the truck.

Well I'm finally replying back. Even with the 6000lb springs in the front of the truck, it still sits 2.5" lower. So my 2.5" leveling kit should do the trick. Just for the info.

If the front is 2.5" lower than the back, and you add 2.5" of lift, you realize the truck will looked sacked out right?

Nope, according to my math, it will be level.

I do have a set of 35" tires and 20" wheels to go with the truck also.

Help me understand what you are trying to say. If the truck sits 2.5" lower in the front and I add a leveling kit, wouldn't that level my truck? No different than the black Superduty posted by Brown1 with 2.5 carli springs. What do you mean by sacked?

That the ass will look lower than the front. Technically level and visually level are two different things.

You want 3/4 to 1" of rake to make the truck appear level to the eye

Ok, my apologies. Honestly didn't know what "sacked " meant. I'm going to dig in and try it. Thank you sir!

Cut 2.5” thick wood blocks and put them under the front tires. Then take a step back and you will know what it looks like and measures out to be. Pretty cheap look ahead.

What I do is put a floor jack under the frame horn and jack it up. That way you get the correct fender gap, which also changes your eyes perception of level.

As sootie already stated. It's about fender gap. Driving it up on blocks might make the truck level but it wont look level to the eye . The gaps have to be equal or it just looks wrong. Tape measure goes a long way.

That black platinum is also a 350 so it has 1.5" more block in the rear. When you do a 2.5" level on a 250 most add a 350 block to the rear.

My first Ford, 1996 F250 XL standard cab, came with a Meyer plow from the dealer.
No heated mirrors, rear windshield defrost, captain's seats or heated seats back then. I started with driveways but people were a PITA. I moved to commercial work then. My truck had a bench seat that wore out from all the time plowing behind the wheel. It didn't do my back any favors. But Obviously even the top of the line models didn't have what comes standard now with the XL and XLT models.

I plan on adding a plow to my truck but just for personal use. So I would have loved to have had heated mirrors and rear windshield defrost At the minimum in those lake effect storms. But at the end of the day, my Lariat is still a truck and I'm not afraid to use it as such.
