Default Lowered 2010-2014 F150s

Here's mine: it's a 2013 XLT with a 3.5/5 DJM Drop and a Flowmaster Exhaust.

More upgrades to come...

Thanks guys.

The truck rides pretty much the same as it did from the factory, and it handles WAY WAY Better. It does however bottom out occasionally on rough roads or if I'm hauling very much weight, so I just bought the SlamAir 59210 kit to solve that problem. (Hopefully it will fix the bottoming out)...

This is the first lowered truck I've ever done and after doing it I can tell you I am absolutely hooked on lowered trucks, they are way more fun to drive. Lol

You got that right. Nice looking truck. The low life is the only way to go.

Right on let us know how that slam air works out for you. I really want to lowered my truck but I tow a RV 6 times a year 5500lbs and scary of bottoming out all the time. Thanks.

I'm lowered 5" and with the slam bags I can tow my 20' trailer with another truck. No issues other than the first time I dropped the tailgate it hit the jack on my trailer now that it's lowered. It left a nice dent and scratch.

Does lowering your truck void the warranty on your truck?

Dude that sucks, but it's great to know that the Bags help that much.

As for the warranty question all I know is what my local dealer told me which was: "lowering the truck will only void the part of the warranty that the new components affects" (springs, shocks, struts, etc) and they also said that if I let them check the pinion angle after lowering it that they would even still cover my driveline and all of those components.

But I guess it just all depends on your dealer...

Does anyone know if the 22 inch Rims from the Harley Davidson, or the Limited will work on a 3.5/5 dropped truck without clearance issues?

If they will what size tire will work best for street use???


Thanks for all the comments.
