Default 69 f250 high boy lift ?

might be getting one this weekend in a trade curious what kind of lift it would need to clear a set of the military ozs (i think they are 36/12.5/16.5) i realize i could cut it up to clear them but id rather lift it if thats the case also where can u find lifts for theese bronco graveyard had a 6 inch for almost a grand i think thats over priced

It shouldn't take much to clear 36's. With the high boy setup you could drop the T-case a little to help with driveline angles, a couple add a leafs in the rear and springs up front and you would be close, if not fully cleared.

I'm assuming you want to do this cheap since you mentioned cutting.

I'm currently running a '66 F-100 on 36's with a similar setup to the one i just explained. But mine is not a highboy.

The highyboy is a factory 4inch so it would not take much. Shouldnt need to drop the t case and all that extra stuff. Do an add a leaf front and rear or even a body lift. Hell put em on i had 33s on myne and i had a mile of clearance

I thought leaf sprung front was 73 to 77?

Body lifts wont work easy with manual clutch linkage. Manual linkage bolts to the body and the frame.
