    Future Plans - I need to decide on a company to get a tune from. Just a matter of reading reviews and seeing how everyone likes them. I've debated about going down with a 3/5ish drop or going up with a 2.5" spacer/coilover and running 33's. For the time being its going to stay the way it is as other life expenses are getting in the way. I really wish someone would make a 22" replica of my wheels but no dice so far. I did have a PS done of powdercoated 22" Limited wheels but not sure if i like them or not to pull the trigger

    Guess i could have but loved this color. Actually was going back and forth on this color, the ingot silver, and white. This is the only truck in my area that had the gear ratio i wanted with the e-locker. Everything else was 3.31 open. Wanted the extra gear in case of running larger tires.
    Yep, sold it to a kid about 20mi from me. Have only seen it around once since i sold it and looked the same as the day i sold it.

    Man I love the new Fords. I vote go up and run some nice x10 wheels with some 305/55 somethings. Those Fords look so good leveled

    I loved the way i had it setup too but it was really getting to be a pain only being 3dr and just nickel and dimeing me every time i turned around. Had to replace the rear end 6months before i sold it.
    This would really be an ideal setup on down the road, however i really like these stock wheels. I also enjoy the mpg i'm getting now as well. I know i could probably get stock like numbers with an economy tune and level/33s though.
    I know one thing, this truck will not be suspension lifted.

    How'd the exhaust turn out? Do you like that muffler?

    Not going to lie, at first i was a bit disappointed bc it was louder than i expected. I think it was bc i was so used to having a quiet stock exhaust for 8+ months. Now that i've had it for a couple months now its not so bad. It can be quiet when cruising during DD duty but still get damn loud and sound good when you hammer on it. Have yet to take it on an extended road trip to see if i get aggravated with it as it does have a small amount of drone at 70+ bc of how i have it routed.
    Overall i like the sound it gives the 5.0L

    It was so tempting. The guy i bought my sct tuner off of had a 3/5 for sale and i waited too long to jump on it. He wanted $350 for it too with less than 3k miles. Theres a few kits for sale on the ferd forums for somewhat cheap too. Just dont want to bite off more than i can chew while still making payments. Having to put a shim for fkn shackles has me worried with what id have to do with a flip kit. Not to mention probably dropping money on tow bags to not bottom out.

    Honestly for a DD and for just the mild level you're looking for, that's overkill. I put a 2.5 spacer on my neighbor's '07 F150 and it didn't hardly change the ride at all. I'd stick with the regular level

    I wouldn't say it's "overkill". Gotta pay to play, I got tired of shitty a shitty ride and bad bumpsteer. Now it rides much better and very little bumpsteer. Well worth it imo, and cut me some weight too, because race truck!

    Level kits are also known to wear out bj's faster.
