    message for DavidKR....I see in your post that you know a lot being at a dealership....My 2011 F150 5.0 ..ticks ....and uses a qt. of oil every 1500 miles .....what is your take on this has only 26K on it and never abused....I like the truck but worried that the oil consumption is a bad sign ...will it just continue to use this amt. or will it get worse ?? Will a heverier oil like a 15-40 syn . help or do damage ...I am in s. Fl. and the truck never sees cold weather ......Thanks David M. on Pine Island Fl.

    It looks great! I've had mine since last October and I've been going for that look. Hope to have something similar soon. Autospring's leveling kits now include the 2.5" front and 1.5" rear. I hope the difference of 1.5" in the rear doesn't make a huge difference. Still debating on tires....Those BFGs you had looked great.

    Hey man, I love your King Ranch. I have one just like it and I am trying to decide between a lift/leveling kit. What do you have on yours?

    Our trip does fall into late July early August, so that could be worth checking out. I don't much care if the road is paved the whole way, or if it is dirt, or even just a trail wide enough for the truck.

    Thank you for the advice, and I will check it out.

    Thank you David! That looks to be a little too far south of where we will be staying this trip, but maybe the next time we head out to the mountains we will have more time. This trip the plan is to stay in the northern/eastern side closer to Boulder or Fort Collins. If you have any suggestions on little known areas out there to go driving for the day, I would be all ears =)

    Your truck looks great! I have one just like it but without the mirrors. I am looking at getting some Ko2s.. What size do you have and what size lift do you have?

    So I saw a few photos of a trip you took in the Rockies over the winter that looked beautiful! My wife and I are going to be traveling with the kids to do sign seeing this summer and I wanted to know if you could tell me what road you were on, or a little more about where you went?
    Thank you for any information you could share.

    I did trim the flares slightly to allow them to fit over the chrome. I just positioned the flares on the truck and used a pencil at against the truck to mark where the moldings met up with the flares. Once it's marked, trim it a little at a time until it fits. Keep in mind the rubber gasket will help fill in any minor imperfections.

    Like you, I looked at a KR as well as the platinum, but for me I knew I wanted the power steps on a lifted truck. This is my second Platinum that I have lifted and I have loved them both. The reason I got rid of my 2009 was to get the 6.2L in my new truck.

    Good luck in the decision.

    David, How do you like the set up of the 2.5as, 3" rear block, and the 275/65r20 Toyo Open County AT2? I've been thinking of doing the exact same thing on my 12 Plat. 2 specific questions if you don't mind 1)I will be changing my Bilsteins from the highest setting to zero and add the spacers to make the ride less harsh, Do any of your suspension parts hit or bottom out going over curbs, speed bumps at high speed, etc? and does the truck wallow into sharp turns? 2) how loud/stiff/etc.are the Toyos? Thanks again for any help.
