Truck Camper on a Lifted 08' F250 CC?

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone with a lifted 08' F250 CC is using it with a truck camper? I was planning on getting a 4.5-6 in lift for my truck, but was able to get a great deal on the camper, and now I wonder if getting the lift is out due to the truck being too high(higher center of gravity). Any pics would be great, as well as experiences, cautions, considerations. Thanks!

I have a 6" lift in my truck with 37's and tuned by spartan and there is NO problems with this set up. Loading and unloading with the camper that high in the air is a little sketchy being that my camper has scary jacks.
other than that I can haul *** down a dirt road and put the truck camper unit into srifts and fish tails..... you should have saw my brothers and the oncoming drivers eyes when I come sideways down a dirt road with two big black jets of smoke shoortng out the side!!! lol

obviously its more top heavy than empty but you got to expect something to change.

Don't know if you decided to lift or not. Heres my 350 with a leveling kit and 35's. With air bags its not that top heavy. I would just worry about getting it that high to take it on and off
