2013 X17Z Dexter # 10 lift kit

I called Dexter axle and spoke with Denise. I gave her the serial # of my axle and the # 10 axle riser kit will work on my axle setup. There is no norco adapter on my axle. Ordered the #10 kit, but like previous post I have read you get enough for tandem axles. Hopefully I will be able to get it lifted this weekend. While talking with Denise she told me I could run up to 15" rims on that particular axle if the wheel well had enough clearance, but I would have to make that determination.
Also she emailed me all the specs for that serial # axle. Dexter customer service is great ! ! I'm thinking the 15" wheels would be the best choice, won't make that decision until I get it lifted.

I got the axle risers installed this past weekend took about an hour. It was a lot easier than I was expecting. I'm going with the 14" rims and the kuhmo 857 tires. Anybody have feedback / experience with the kuhmo 857 ?

Thanks for the input

Also, what effect on gas mileage? My X23E seems to ride low and I wouldn't mind it being a little higher. How much lift does the kit give?

Thanks for any and all info!

2013 X17Z Dexter # 10 lift kit

The kit gives 2 5/8" of lift.

I lifted mine more than that and haven't seen a mpg change. My tow rig is as boxy as the trailer so it my not be representative. YMMV.

Just put the Kuhmo 857 195 tires on this past weekend. Will post pics ASAP. Gas mileage is about the same. Lift kit lifts the x17z about 2.5"
