I am going to be putting 35s x 12.50 wheels and tires on my 2006 F.150 FX4.I cant seem to get a straight answer on what it's going take to clear. I heard from Rough Country that a 6" lift will be required and I have heard from others that a 4" or even a 2.5" leveling kit will get the job done. Can anyone who has done any of the three get back to me. Appreciate the feedback.

A six inch kit with 35s would kind of odd, in my opinion. You could level the truck (2 or 2.5") and still fit those tires in there. A 4" lift with 35s would look pretty nice and give you more than enough clearance to do most of whatever you needed off-road.
