I have 37s with 4.88s. Running 33s with 4.56s would be like running 5.13s with my 37s - I’m...

It is typically suggested to check the trans when warm (and running in most cases) - however, the two marks are hot (top) and cold (bottom).

I wouldn't drop more than 10lbs less per corner than the 5.4 SCAB rate.

it was the 04-08 trucks that had different splines in the front (28 vs 31) than 09-14. 15 & up should be the same.

Best bang for the buck would be '17 Raptor take off UCAs/LCAs but go ahead and buy aftermarket 3.0s with Resi.

That level of performance is already deep in cage territory.
