The extra weight wouldn't bother me at all, but the only thing I miss about my F-150 is the 36 gallon tank. Unhooked I don't mind the 26 gallon tank in my SD (300-350 mi range), but it's not real...

My OEM rotors were pulsating around 35k miles. Spent maybe an hour removing them and had O'Reilly resurface for around $15 each, way cheaper than buying a new set. They're not difficult to remove...

Nope, rear is completely stock. I'm considering options to raise the rear a tad. I don't want to have a nose high attitude when towing or carrying weight in the bed.

I decided on the 2" AS Level. The pictures don't really do it justice. Sits about perfect, if not slightly nose high. I felt the 2.5" would result in too much of a nose high stance and wear out...

I wasn't sure I'd like the resonator delete, so I looked for a reversible option. A shop will simply cut it out and weld in a piece of straight pipe in place. I wanted to keep my stock resonator in...

We're way off topic but rust is not an issue here in the Denver area. Salt is so 1970's. Thanks to my professional buffer and paint sealant my black paint looks new (no swirls). Just because your...

My garaged truck will look better than your non-garaged truck in 5 years. Guaranteed.

If I couldn't fit an F-150 in my garage, I'd be driving a different vehicle.

Consider the OEM resonator delete pipe instead of a shop welding in one. The stock option is bolt on and easily removable if you don't like it.

I don't know enough about it to argue steel quality, but even if it's better than OEM, is it really worth paying twice as much for an exhaust system? Does it make that much difference in the...

I have the 18" Magnaflow. The tone is great, not as harsh as Flowmasters, but was a bit too quiet with resonator still on. It sounds great without it, significantly louder but minor drone from...

I'd love to have one, but to equip one similar to my 2011 I'm looking at a $11k increase over my original MSRP. No thanks. The pricing is my only issue and will cost them sales for sure.
