Yeah, I love that color. I love the Silver/DSG two tones on the f150 too, thats what I originally wanted.

it will be a while, the dealer is putting new tires on it and im paying so much more for thus versus the 150. i cant see it happening. i want a 30' gooseneck next, which is another reason not to lift it.

Get a Spartan tuner for it and DPF/EGR delete. Nice truck! I like it since it doesn't have chrome bumpers and everything is painted.

Thanks. I wanted a Spartan tuner but my gyphon can be retuned from the 150 to the 6.4l for only 150. Might as well try that. I'll do the dpf delete and exhaust at the same time. Whenever that might be.

Looks great zach. Thought your f150 was badass. This will be a very useful truck with the ranger.

NIce truck.... man I want a 6.4 soooo bad. But I guess I'll have to stick with my ole 7.3. And like someone said, go with Spartan if you are able to. And get a bigger exhaust and delete the DPF and it will RUN! Check out Powerstokenation.com if you get the chance.

Just let me know when you need some information about the ICON lifts, ok? That 2.5" leveling system sure is the cat's meow, lol.

Sweet truck dude. I'm guessing that's a job 1 truck because it has the shorter valence.

I love how stable these trucks are- from towing to just cruising down the highway, the Super Duty is an impressive platform. They ride firmer than the 150s, but I don't mind too much. Actually, it's the width that makes the Super Duty tough to manage in parking lots.

I'm jeolous. If I could trade my fiddy for a powerstroke and not have to make payments I'd do it in a heartbeat. Only problem is that I don't want to make payments and I don't want to dip into the savings to pay cash lol. Guess Im stuck with the F150 lol.

Ryan, stay debt free. Trucks are awesome and all but staying debt free is even better. My 150 was close to paid off, now I'm back paying again. I just felt it was the right time to do it. Hoping I made the right decision.

Thanks! I dint think any lifts for me on this one.

Actually I have not even drove this one but 5 miles. I had surgery yesterday so I've been on oxy cotton all day. Lol. I had my dad drive me over to check it out. Then he drove it home. I already had the bank paperwork done a few weeks ago. Just hunting for the right one.
