Nice! No need for the running boards anymore! I removed mine before I even lowered it lol.

Would it look weird to lower my f150 supercrew with stock wheels? Undecided on a 2/4 or a 3/5 drop, I'm getting new tires this week instead of the 255/65/17 I'm getting 275/60/17 Nitto

let's see some MORE lowered trucks!!!....-forumrunner_20140210_122856.jpg

I am, I am looking into figuring out how to raise the running boards closer to the truck to give it a tighter look.

Stock wheels always look way better with a drop but on 17 inch stockers Id look to upgrade. Id hold off on getting tires until after the drop-you may want to change wheel size so why not spend that tire money on a new combo.

Been wanting to lower it for a few years now and would love wheels and tires but can't right now, just replacing these ones since they are almost bald. Though I mainly want to lower it just to help my dad get in the truck. Since he'll be getting knee surgery, want it to be easier for him to get in. Just didn't know if it'll look weird with stock 17s

I'm still rocking the 17's on mine and it doesn't look too bad. They are the flat spoke wheels though but they look ok IMO

It currently has 3" drop beams up front and a 2" lowering shackle in the rear combined with the overload leaf removed. I have a set of Belltech drop hangers on order that will bring the back down another 2"
Not a bad looking pickup you have there. Miss my '94 like crazy. Sold it when it started eating transmissions, and thinking back it would have been a fairly easy fix if it was what I think it was.

3" DJM Dream Beams
1" Lightning coils (Factory)
2" Shackles/2" Hangers
2" Lightning leafs (Factory)

It was a fun little pickup.
