Default My 7lug ecoboost build!

Thought I'd make a build thread for my truck affectionately named "El Torro" by my friends. My truck is a 2012 XL ecoboost F150 super cab, with and 8 foot bed, max tow, 3.73 rear end, and limited slip diff.

first off I got a Rough country 2.5 level and wheels and tires
for wheels, I went to 4wheel parts and ended up getting a custom drilled set of fuel octanes that were 17x8.5in and had +14 offset and 5.75 backspacing and BFG all terrain TA/KO tires in 285/70/17
