    Truck works great in town or out in the county. Also, with the Rancho RS9000 Gas shocks the truck rides sooooo muchhhh better that it did stock (at least my view). Anyway, lot's of members have ball joint problems with the 2-3 inch lifts and even a friend of mine has already has parts worn out because of the angle of the joints. With the Rancho, everything is right in-line. Anyway, I went with the 4" Rancho as most of the other lifts are 6" and I didn't need to go that high. I've sat in both the 6" lifts and then mine and I'd do the Rancho lift again (unless I was maybe in my 20's) The 4" also clears the 35" tires I have with just a little trimming. Hope this helps.

    How's your city driving? I have been thinking about going with the rancho as well but I live in a fairly large city and don't want the truck to feel big and outta place. Thanks

    No vibration on mine at all with the Rancho and I'd say it rides better and smoother than stock F150s that I've ridden in. What type of tires did you install? Mudder type tire or All Terrain and what brand. Also, how about having your wheels/tires rebalanced? Lastly, did you have an alignment done on the truck after the installation - which is a must. Hope this helps......let me know how it turns out.

    so i had the 4" Rancho lift installed . and now the vibration on the highway is driving me nuts. it seems to only happen on Decel not accel. tires and rims check out okay. went through the lift with the shop that installled it and made them retorque everything. what is weird is i can make it stop by swithing into 4high briefly. then its gone but when the truck slows down its back. since its time for my first oil change i am taking it to the dealer today to see waht they think. any ideas??

    I have a brand new 2011 Ecoboost that I want to put the Rancho 4" lift kit on. What Rear end do you have? 3.55 or 3.73? I have the 3.55 and I'm concerned about power loss and added stress on the 3.55. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with 34 inch tires.

    If you could let me know I'd appreciate it.

    Beautiful Truck BTW!

    Thanks
