That is wild. As you can tell I spend a lot more time with GM stuff then ford but would never think that 2" drop would cause a problem. I guess that is ford for you.


2" helps out the looks but you started now, all you need is another 3+ front and rear.

Did you modify the seam on the underside of the bed? If so, did you cut it or fold it over.

I am more interested in folding it over as I am afraid cutting will introduce a place for rust but not sure how to do that.

I just folded it over and gave it a quick spray with red paint to cover any nicks or scratches.

Thanks! So what technique did you use to fold it over? If I need to do it, I want to do it with minimal effort but more importantly, minimal damage.
