Default Thoughts and Comments

My truck was hit, so I decided when in shop to have a few things done.. I had chrome bumpers removed and paint to match bottom stripe bumpers installed.. I am going to TRY the Rancho 4 inch lift, I 80% sure it will work.. Any thing else you guys think will look good?? Oh 1 more thing, no front license plate bracket, can I get something to cover the whole in the bumper? Looking in to Bushwackers also First pic is when I got it... The truck DOES sit level, not on even ground.. Thanks guys

How about taking a sawzall and cutting the tailpipe at a slight angle (leaving more at the top and angling back, if that makes sense) don't cut off more than and inch or two, then sand and paint what you can see with Rustoleum high heat spray paint....its a cheap mod that looks good IMO.

The 4 inch lift works with the heavy duty 7 lug pickups? If so, I thought I read that it didn't, but best of luck. I think it looks great now. The black wheels and color of your truck looks awesome. On your truck the 35s don't look as stuffed as some do with just a level. Black exhaust tip would look good.

Jerry, I called Rancho here in Michigan. I live 5 minutes from them.. They tell me THEY don't even know if it works because they never tried one.. I have done some research and found that the spindles on the 7 lug ARE same as the reg. F150 6 lug. The hubs are different but they don't come with the kit so mine should bolt up.. Everything else seems to be the same... It will be after the beginning of the year, but we wlll give it ago...
