I've had my 2005 SuperCrew 4x4 for a few years now and at 165K miles it's about time to replace the suspension. I am currently on deployment so I'll have a bunch of time to research the options available and I'l have a little coin to drop into the build when I get back.
The truck is being geared toward overland/expedition style travel. I currently run a Hell Bent Steel 2" leveling kit on the front end over the stock strut assembly. I like the leveled look, no plans for anything higher than that (Method 105 Beadlocks and 33" tires are already in the works).
My main problem: I really want to run a system from Icon Vehicle Dynamics. I would like to run one with a remote reservoir and the adjustable dampening,but that is only offered in their kit for the 09-14 F150.
Is there a major difference in the shock mounting/UCA mounting points between the 04-08 frame and the 09-13 frame? From just a cursory look at my truck and my buddies '09 STX it looks the same. Hopefully someone out there has some experience working with both frames directly or possibly some engineering data/precise measurements.
