Are you an Edge or 4x2 XLT type? If it's at the stock XLT height, you have a bit more clearance problems.
You need to get front and back tow hooks, have a sense of humor, and friends who never tire of having to pull you out. I wheeled mine 4x2 for years in various stages from stock to lifted on 35" tires with a locker and I had a lot of fun.
I'm blessed with a fairly tolerant crew of wheeling buddies, and I carry tow straps and have a front winch so I was good.
But you will have to take crap from folks from time to time -- like I say, if you can't laught it off don't go out!
