one cannot compare the tunes of today with “many years ago in a SHO”. The manufactures leave so much power on the table, it’s ridiculous. All of them, not just Ford. Todays engines with turbos are...

Not sure what you mean by “without cutting into the body of the truck”. We know what’s possible, you asked us, not the other way around. Personally I think people are crazy for cutting crash bars...

If you don’t have to pull the hub off or remove the LCA (as I did) to get clearance to remove/install the strut assembly, it’s an easy job. I couldn’t get the stock assembly out though and didn’t...

I have the 3” RC kit and a 2” rear block, it sits dead level (what I wanted) with 33” tires and I just barely fit in a 6-8 garage. But I did fit. In fact, some of the plastic directional signs that...
