    8" fabtech lift...is basic okay to go with?

    Hey yall i'm trying to order my lift tonight and i cant decide. i have a 2005 F-250 Crew Cab 8-ft bed 6.0 with the FX4 off road package. I have been saving up for a lift for awhile now and now have the money but am caught up on what to buy. The lift i've been looking at is the Fabtech 8" inch basic system but i'm not sure wether its with factory overload or without. It's in about the price range for what i am willing and able to spend. However i'm concerned that since it's a basic system i'm worried that it will have negative effects on my truck or will simply just break. I will be running 37x13.50x17 super swamper m16's which i have pretty much decided on. I just need help on choosing a lift. any ideas or help? thanks
    heres the link to the lift

    Just be careful, thats alot of block in the assend, with those super swampers, you'll have alot of traction and your begging for axle rap. I'm not sure but I bet you'll have at least 6.6 inch block if not more. If that doesn't scare you, I'd say go for it.

    I love my RIZE lift. I stepped up to the rear ladder bar set-up. Rides awesome!

    with 37's you could get away with a 6" without any problems. I would avoid rear lift blocks and go with complete rear springs. It costs a little more but well worth the extra dough.
