Yeah it was about 15 days late from when it was originally due. I've been accumulating a crap load of parts. It will take months to get them all on. The bad thing is I still have all the parts I've taken off so the pile still hasn't gotten any smaller...Well maybe a tiny bit smaller.

Thanks...I was really torn between leveling and lowering, A lowered RCSB look amazing but between my steep driveway and living in the snow belt, leveling was the only practical answer for me. The roads here are horrible this year, I blew a tire in a pot hole 2 weeks ago in my BMW with only 19" wheels. I can only image how vulnerable a 22" wheel is.

Pretty pretty! Ain't it nice to work on a new truck? NO dirt!!
Good point on the lowering, that's why mine isn't going lower.

I ran the Fox 2.5 with DSC on my 2015 F250 Platinum. Once they’re dialed in they’re amazing.
It sounds counterintuitive but start on the soft side...especially in the back.
The double adjustable Vikings I have on my truck now are perfect at 3 compression and 4 rebound out of 18 on both settings. You’ll have that RCSB riding smooth as silk in no time.

It's always the little things that take time. When I tried to install the Husky rear wheel liner, it was blocking the DSC adjusters. Nothing you can't fix with a die grinder with a cut off wheel.



Much better, the cut is actually straight across the top. For some reason the camera makes it look round.



The passenger side where the shock is mounted forward of the differential it was even worse. This what was left after.

For sure...no grease at all...A little dirt...that's about it.

Thanks, that's good to know...I drove it about 5 miles after I was done with the tires and shocks. It's firmer but more planted. I have to still play around with adjusters. The KO2s are really quiet. I can't tell any difference in noise. Took a railroad track with pretty high rise at around 40 MPH. No drama at all.
