I have a Corp job and own a company too. My wife also has a Corp job. We both work so much we do not see each other a lot. Not the best way to live a life.

Get a job that you love vs. a job just for the money.

We do not like the 9th gen. The 10th Gen has over 500hp (NA)

You can get a damn good bit of power out of the truck

Our truck will rarely see mud. It is a street truck. Boggers were very clunky to ride on the street.

Our rims are 15 inches in DIM and 14 or 15 width. The tires are 16.5 wide

How tall are those?? And what type???


You need to put an 8" skyjacker on there, a 2" leveling kit, add a leaf in the rear, and a 3" body lift. Be pushing 13" of lift total.

100% correct, 13.5 total list. Doing everything you stated except 2.4 level

They are a lot smaller than you think, these are only 36". With the lift we are planning we should clear 40" if we want to add that later. They are Micky Thompsons

Dropped the truck off at the shop for lift and tires. The truck should gain another 6.5 inches with the tires.
