I'd like to go with the Bilstein 5100 route for my 2014 4WD Fx4 5.0/6.5 box but I don't know if they make this adjustable shock for 2014?

Has anyone installed this system in a 2014 4WD FX4 5.0/6.5 box?

Thank you
As of right now your only option is coil spacers. Daystar or procomp. I got the 2" procomp spacers and they are great.

I been looking at TRUXXX. I like that they are made in the USA, albeit take that with a grain of salt. Check out the link. http://truxxx.com/leveling-lift-kits/ford/f150

Default 2004 F-150 Rancho 2"

I had a coil break and instead of just replacing the strut I decided to do the Rancho Quicklift RS9000 on my 2004 Crew Cab FX4 5.4L. I ordered them from summit racing and did it myself in my Garage in a few hours it wasn't too bad. I'm pretty happy with the results I think the truck looks great. I also went with 275/70R18 Mastercraft courser MXT's after doing the lift.

When you install a leveling kit make sure you get an alignment because it changes the geometry of your wheels

What's up everyone?!

First, I'd like to thank Lenn and ProZach for the awesome information and reviews, and all of the other posters that have provided good information. I've finally decided that I'm going with the Ranchos. I looked at other Coilover kits, but haven't found one that's as comparable. Bilstiens look like they'll work, but I like that the ride in Rancho is adjustable.

I'm not looking to break the bank with a good level, so I'm thinking the Ranchos are perfect. Anyone have any other coilovers that won't break the bank but provide quality?

I have a Daystar spacer kit that mounts above the strut tower. Does anyone know if it's possible to install the spacer without breaking the torque on the bolt connecting the strut to the lower control arm? I think the factory spec on that bolt is like 347 lb.ft. I don't have a torque wrench that will go that high. Maybe an impact, but I won't know for sure if it's under/over torqued. Thanks.

Great thread.....but long. I read through the first few pages but didn't see what I was thinking so figured I'd ask.

I see this is all about "Leveling" the truck but it appears everyone is raising the front to match the rear. But is there anyway to lower the rear to match the front? This is my first truck and I doubt I'll ever take it off-road more than somebody's yard and I would prefer a touch less wheel-gap if possible and the ability to reach all the way down in the bed over the side would be an added benefit.

Sorry if this question is our of the norm, thanks for any help.

Matt, there are lowering shackles where you can drop the bed. Do you plan on towing with it? The reason the rear is raised so much is to prevent the truck from bottoming out when there is any type of load on the back. That said, lowering the rear of the truck is definitely possible, and will help with the aesthetics of the truck.
