@kamac0694 If your happy with the way your truck is (you said you did in the original post) then don't change a thing. I think you have a sick truck and wouldn't change a thing about it, props to you bro!

Other people commenting on a person that says he's happy with what he has should STFU. Seriously, if he likes the "Cali lift" style or whatever you want to call it, lower in the back and taller in the front, then don't tell him he should change it and shut up.

Once again, bad **** truck bro!! Glad your happy!

Really glad I didn't use the 2" blocks that came with the lift haha. The tires stick out exactly as much as I wanted them to, it's taller than I was expecting, it drives great, tracks straight, UCA angles are fine, LOVE it.



Sweet truck bro! Wouldn't change a thing

^^^Great advice, no-one should have an opinion....

On to more positive posts, I dipped my center console cup holder sections and I like it so well, I am having my dad (professional body work/salvage repair) paint them a satin black. I love the look. He will also be doing the a/c chrome rings and maybe the chrome gearshift selector. I just dont want to much black.

LOTS of trimming, I tried to trim as little of the plastic as possible and instead went under the plastic and trimmed back the steel behind it

Center console now all black. I can only hope the paint I choose turns out this good! I purposely sprayed the final coat from about 16" for a textured look.

I'm glad I didn't get 12" wide wheels (I went back and forth a lot), cause I've compared with others and mine stick out almost as much because they have .25" less backspacing than 20x12 -44's and don't stretch the tires out, which is actually a little unsafe.

Thanks, man. I do appreciate you defending my truck, but I actually am pretty against Cali lean, squat, etc. haha. I prefer at least 0.5-1" of rake and am pretty vocal about that if you were to read all of my posts on here and f150online.

However, I broke down and had a shop do my lift because of missed overtime at work, time crunch I was under before going back to college, paying a buddy to help, and a few other things (I've done literally every other mod on my truck, including headers, myself) if I had done it myself. Worked out to be about $400 more to have a shop do it and have it be their problem, so it was worth it to me. But, it was another $200 for them to install an AAL or 6" leaf springs in addition to the blocks (thank goodness I bought 5" ones instead of the 2" ones it came with!), both of which I can do on my own down the road, so I decided to just deal with the back being an inch lower for a while. Plus with the tires out, unlike the pics I posted, the "lean" isn't as noticeable.

Thanks again for the compliments! I got 3 different compliments in maybe an hour and a half the other day, and I thought that was awesome! Amazing how many more people notice a lifted truck than a regular one haha. I used to only get compliments from other people with F150s.

Haven't been in here and posted any pics in awhile. Way to many updates since my last post to list.
