Installing a Carli Dominator Suspension Kit on Derrick's F-250

Installing a Carli Dominator Suspension Kit on Derrick's F-250

Jake Hopkins |

Leave a truck stock? Not around here!

Derrick from our sales team knocked out a Carli Suspension 4.5" Dominator 3.0 Suspension Kit on his daily-driven F-250—giving him the ultimate combo of off-road performance, and excellent road manners.

Now, it goes without saying that not everyone needs an all-out lift kit like the Dominator. But, it is the perfect solution for Derrick. 

As an avid off-roader, he spends as much time in the dirt as he does on pavement. Whether he's driving a RZR or his 3rd Gen 4Runner Derrick is a fan of the road less traveled. 

So when it came time to ditch the stock (boring) suspension on his Super Duty, he wanted to most capable off-the-shelf setup around. Hence, the 4.5" Dominator Kit. 

The specs on this particular kit are: 

  • Shock Diameter - 3.0"
  • Lift Height - 4.5"
  • Tire Size - Up To 37"
  • Front Travel - 10.5"
  • Rear Travel - 13"
  • Front Lift - 4.5"
  • Rear Lift - 3.5"

Installation Time: 

With a little help from the FASS Motorsports team, Derrick installed this entire kit in the span of a weekend. While there is some cutting and drilling involved, this is not a fabrication-heavy install.

That said, this may not be a lift kit to install if you're a first-timer. 


If you're looking to upgrade the suspension on your rig, but don't want to mess with the install, give us a shout at (636) 429-7020—we'll be happy to recommend a quality shop near you.

Before and After:

With a reasonable 4.5" of lift height, the Dominator kit gave Derrick's rig plenty of clearance for 37" tires while staying perfectly practical as a daily driver. 

In terms of ride quality, the Dominator Kit provides the softest on-road ride in the Carli lineup. Unlike some lift kits, the Dominator is engineered from the ground-up to improve nearly every aspect of the driving experience. 

From the smoothest paved roads to the harshest desert terrain, this is one seriously well-rounded kit.
