It's the BDS kit. I believe it uses new struts.

Default just wondering

Hello
I just traded my 2011 fx4 ecoboost for my 2014 stx 4x4 sport with 5.0. I was having nothing but problems with my ecoboost. With that said. I have ordered a 6.5 McGaughry lift kit and plan on running 35" tires. I want the tires to stick out so I am thinking of ordering -24 offset wheels I was just wondering if anyone has done this yet? If so do the hit? I asked Mcgaughry and they say it will not hit. Any help thanks a lot.

I used the 2 1/2 autospring i already had and put on the zoneoffroad 6" kit. I had a aal in the rear already, it cleared my 37's and it rides great

You could just get new fenders they run about $350 for the pair and it gives it a pre runner look with a lot more clearance...

Thanks for the opinions.. I think I am going to go with the zone 2" (being sister to BDS) or the as 2 1/2... I'll have to measure and see which one will make it more level..

It's more a mall crawler, with very little off road (maybe summer camping trips or something) usage.
