    You ran 37s on the stock wheels and suspension? I am adding a 2021 SuperDuty 6.7L Tremor to my garage and will do the Carli 2.5" Suspension so I can run 37s.

    All stock with 37's on 20's just results in radius arm rub at sharp turns. It clears everything else on the truck.

    Just get a set of the carli radius arms for a 2.5 lift before anything else, run them at stock height, then get 37's and pair of the steel stahl wheel spacers just 1/2" thick. Then it all works and clears even lock to lock steering wise.

    Carli arms clear 37's at 5.5" backspace.

    Stock wheels are 6" backspace. So the steel ones in 1/2 thick.

    That's all 2012 info that worked for me. I haven't seen the Tremor specs.

    "Man that thing went down fast, yep, like a rock"---best commercial ever!

    Yea , I assume the Ford F-250 axles are strong enough to handle the load with the 46” or maybe not ? but the tranny would give you middle fingers all day long

    They have been around for a long time. Used to be called F250R and then Ford got upset. Built by Jeremy Dixon here in Tucson. Really haven't heard anything bad about them. You can get on Instagram and search for owners using the hashtag. He usually posts the owners name on his builds so you can talk to them directly.

    Yea just visited their instagram , the build is nice and how they keep the lower center of gravity with just 4.5 icon lift and 46” Tires . I was wondering since they keep the f250/f350stock axles without modifying. It . not the f450 bigger axle . Would those f250 axles withstand the load of the 46s as a daily use ?

    Front axle is 35 spline dana 60
    Rear axle is either a sterling 10.25 or a dana m275 depending on options.
    They are plenty strong, although if you start talking about rocks and lockers with the weight of these trucks then add in a heavy foot and big ego they might be beyond capacity.

    Transmission isn't a concern: 6r140 is tough, the axle gear ratio absorbs most of the diameter change and these trucks are rated to tow 18,000 lbs. extra mass shouldn't be a problem for trans.
