Carli 2017+ F250/F350 Super Duty Suspension Systems

Now that Carli's 2.5" 2017+ systems have begun hitting the market, we thought we'd provide an overview of the components included in this system as well as provide information such as heights/wheel and tire clearance/etc.

This 2017 F350 Lariat was brought to us to have a Carli Pintop 2.5 (2.5" height) system installed. The owner has opted to upgrade to Carli's fabricated radius arms. Since this trucks tows a heavy fifth wheel setup, we decided to utilize Carli's rear add a packs. For wheels, we chose Method 18" Standards with black OMF rings. For tires, this truck is running 37x13.5x18 Toyo Open Country R/T's. We are extremely pleased both with how this truck rides/drives and how it looks!

We get a lot of questions about how these trucks will fit into garages etc. We measured this truck before and after the kit/wheel/tire installation and came up with the following measurements.

Before - Front Fender from Ground - 41.5"  /  Rear Fender from Ground - 44.8"  /  Bed Rail to Ground - 59"  /  Roof Height at Tallest Point - 81"

After - Front Fender from Ground - 45"  /  Rear Fender from Ground - 45.5"  /  Bed Rail to Ground - 59.5"  /  Roof Height at Tallest Point - 83"

Spring 2017

2017 is already shaping up to be a year full of awesome builds. Here are some of our favorites so far:

Twin 2016 Carli Pintop 2500's, both riding on 20" Method NV's and Toyo 37" R/T's, with the crew cab long bed being a modified factory air ride truck.


2012 Ram Mega Cab Long Bed featuring 6" Carli Dominator 3.0, 17" Method NV's, & 37" Toyo Open Country MT tires.


2014 Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel expedition build featuring Carli Leveling Kit & 35" Toyo Open Country R/T tires.


2017 Ram 2500 Mega Cab featuring Carli Leveling Kit, 18" Method Mesh wheels, & 37" Toyo Open Country MT tires. We really like how this one turned out!


2006 Ford Super Duty that we dropped front a generic, rough riding 6" lift kit to a Carli Commuter 2.0 system with 2008 full progressive leaf springs, 18" Method NV's, & Nitto 35" Terra Grapplers.


Here's another shot of our shop 2012 Ram 2500 Mega Cab featuring a Carli 6" Unchained IBP system, 20" Trail Ready Simulated Beadlocks, & 37" Toyo Open Country MT's.


Check out this pair of 2015 Ram 2500's. The black Mega Cab is rocking a Carli Back Country 2.0 system, 17" Robby Gordon wheels, & 37" Toyo Open Country MT's. The white crew cab is running a Carli Pintop 2.5 Ram 2500 system, 17" Walker Evans wheels, & 37" Toyo Open Country MT tires.


Ram 3500 Cummins Dually featuring a Carli Back Country 2.0 Ram 3500 system and 35" Nitto Trail Grappler MT's.


We've updated our resident Carli Leveling Kit equipped 2015 Ram 3500. It is now rocking Innov8 forged beadlock wheels all around!


Here is an oldie but a goodie (this truck was built a few years back). This is Matt's 2012 Ram 2500 featuring a Carli 6" Unchained system, a Thuren Fabrication front bumper, 17" Trail Ready beadlock wheels, and 37" Toyo Open Country MT's.


This is another one of our favorite recent customer builds. This is a brand new Ram 3500 Mega Cab sporting a Carli Pintop 2.5 system with Carli Torsion Sway Bar, 18" Method Double Standards, and 37" Toyo Open Country R/T's.


This Ram 2500 was built to be used off road in Mexico. It features a Carli Pintop 2.5 Ram 2500 system, 17" Method NV's, and 35" Toyo Open Country MT's. Not only is this truck more capable off road, street ride quality is incredible. In our opinion, these Carli 2500 systems offer some of the best street ride of any heavy duty truck suspension we've installed/ridden in.


This truck has seen quite the dramatic transformation. It is a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 that has been updated with a 2006 front clip and a Thuren Fabrication bumper and is riding on a Carli Starter system with Carli Torsion Sway Bar, 17" Method 105 deadlocks, and 37" Toyo Open Country R/T tires.


This brand new 2017 Ram 3500 is sporting a Carli Pintop 2.5 system, 17" Raceline Avengers, and 37" Nitto Ridge Grapplers. This truck looks just right and rides significantly better than stock!


Check out Rick's 2012 Ram 2500 sporting a Carli Commuter 2.0 system, 18" Method Grid Titanium wheels, & 35" Toyo Open Country R/T tires. This truck is used for work daily and, thanks to the Carli Commuter system, rides significantly better than before.


This cherry 2nd gen Ram 2500 only has only 70k original miles and is running a Carli Performance 2.0 system, 18" Fuel Trophy wheels, and 35" Toyo Open Country ATII tires. We really like how this one turned out!

Off Road Expo & Other September/October Builds

Over the past few months, we have been fortunate enough to work on some awesome projects as well as unveil some of our shop rigs at the 2016 Off Road Expo in Pomona, California.



We replaced our shop 2010 with a 2012 Mega Cab featuring a Carli Suspension 6" Unchained IBP system. We then had our friends at Autobahn Collision in Torrance, California color match the bumpers and add a 2016 grille. They also did some custom fabrication work on the front bumper to remove the opening at the bottom. The truck is rounded out with Trail Ready 20" Simulated Beadlock HD20 wheels powder coated in Prismatic Triple Bronze, 38" Toyo MT's, and Baja Designs Squadron fog lights and OnX6 Arc 30" in the front bumper using our custom brackets.



This 1994 12 valve underwent a full restoration and received a Carli Dominator 3.0 system with billet shock towers, Carli control arms, 17" Method machined Double Standards, and 37" Toyo R/T's. All paint work was done by Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance, California. This truck was a hit at the Off Road Expo. We are absolutely thrilled with how this truck turned out!


Our other major unveiling at the Off Road Expo was Carli's new 2.5" Jeep Commuter system. This Jeep features Carli's 2.5" soft rate coils front and rear, Carli High Clearance Fabricated Control Arms, Carli Adjustable Track Bars front and rear, Carli Rock Sliders, Baja Designs XL Pro lights, Raceline 17" Monster beadlocks, and 35" Toyo MT's. Look forward to many more updates on this rig in the near future!


This brand new 2016 2500 received a Carli Commuter 2.0 system, 17" Method NV's, and 37" Toyo MT's. With some slight fender liner trimming, this setup cleared nicely!


Our friend Balu's 2016 2500 got treated to a Carli Pintop 2.5 system, machined 17" Method NV's, and 37" Toyo R/T's. We really like the look of this one with this color!


Here is a brand new 2016 2500 Mega Cab Sport featuring a Carli Commuter system, gloss black powder coated Raceline Avengers, and 37" Toyo R/T's. The white and black combination on this truck tuned out great!


This 2016 Sport 2500 features one of Carli's new 2.5" leveling kits. This truck has the addition of a Carli Adjustable Track Bar, Method Standards, and 35" Toyo R/T's.


Bill brought us this cherry 2006 Cummins wanting to improve the ride quality. We installed a Carli Pintop 2.5" system with full progressive leaf springs, 17" Trail Ready Simulated Beadlocks, and 35" Toyo ATII's. The difference in ride was night and day and the customer is thrilled with how this turned out!


Here is another brand new Mega Cab 2500 that we installed a Carli Suspension Pintop 2.5 system on along with Trail Ready Simulated Beadlocks and 37" Toyo R/T's. We'd say this combination is just about perfect!


We set our painter up with a Carli 6" Dominator 3.0 system, Raceline Liberator forged beadlocks, and 37" Toyo MT's. This combination is absolutely stunning!
