6 inch lift + 2.5 inch level pics

My 6 inch rough country is gonna be here tomorrow and ill be installing it over the weekend. As of now i have a 2.5 inch leveling kit and im trying to decide if i want to keep it or just run the 6". Im going to get the bilstein 4-6" 5100's somewhat soon so im not worried about stacking levels. Im just looking for pictures of this setup with 35's to see if it will look good.

u cant stack a 2.5 level with the 6" rough country, trust me i already tried it. it works with other kits but not the rough country kit, search for my old thread for more info on it. the only thing u can add to the rough country kit is a 1" level. here is my truck with 7" and 37s next to a stock f150.

Lift kits are good. They are engineered to be certain heights. If that kit isn't enough for your purposes, you are better off getting a different kit with more lift. It's not the best idea to take a 6" kit, then try to "mod" the kit. You do know that you can get an 8" and a 12" lift kit. Rize makes them. If you want 8" of lift, get an 8" kit.

Yes I am fully aware of rize lifts...but at seventeen years old when you've bought everything you own including the truck buying a rize is a whole different animal then doing what plenty of other people have done happily and successfully.

I read where someone said the 2.5" spacer won't work with the 6" RC lift. I never tried stacking it on the RC, but here's what I had on my F-150. The new owner has recently installed Bilstein's up front and said the ride is much better.

the reason you can't fit anything more on top of the Rough Country kit is because the crossmember in the kit is really a 5 inch drop, and it includes a 6 inch spacer. So, trying to put a 2.5 inch level on top of the Rough Country spacer is like trying to put in a 3.5 inch leveling kit
