Wish the weather had looked like that last week in Michigan.

I was out for my last week of camping and between rain and 40 mph winds one day it was a quite a challenge, especially when the dog needs to go out and it's pouring.

Very happy with it. I was towing with a Nissan Titan, the Ford is much better -- but the Titan wasn't bad.

personally... a 4" lift would do more, but costs more too.

personally, i plan on adding in roadmasters and then leveling 2". the springs will add an additional 1 1/8" to the rake. so the level will bring up the truck to simulate a bit of a 2" lift. and should be slightly raked or level if i load it down a lot.

keep in mind this is all theory thus far.
Here's the truck with Air Lift airbags and a 2" leveling kit I just installed. Next up is 10 ply BFG T/A KO 275/65/18 tires. Not sure if ill need HD shocks to finish off the touches to make this 150 a pulling machine. We will find out next spring!

Here's our new rig. Nice upgrade from the Shasta tt. HD package handles it great. Thought I might need timbrens for extra bottoming protection but no problem. Just need to move the pin box down to the last hole to get another 1" of bed clearance. Over 11mpg on the 300 mile trip home (up from 9.5 with the tt) and I can feel that it's easier cruising than the travel trailer and much more stable.
