Suspension lift question

I am going to go with 285/75 R18 tires and was wondering how big of a lift do I have to run? The truck is an 2006 F250 4x4.

I am hopeing that I can run the Icon 2.5 lift and clear these. I dont really want a big lift I just need the ground clearance of 35's. Thanks in advance!

If your just looking for tire clearance and not big articulation gain, I'd look at the Readylift.

I wonder if you can really run 37's with the ready lift kit? Anyone using the ready lift that can comment on tire clearance and ride quality?

This is mine with the 3.5 ready on the front the back was 3.0. Rolling on 37's. Ride quality never really changed it rode hard before and still rides hard after the lift.
