I don't know, I think it looks terrible now. I'm sure you would be much happier trading for my F150...


The tires look like a great fit on the factory wheels. Really, the front height doesn't look bad at all in the pictures, but I do think the rear needs to come up an inch or the front needs to come down. Either way it would still look great.

lol, thanks Brian. Tires make a world of difference that is for sure.

I really dont mind the way it sits now but I know it wont work well when I put the trailer on. Maybe some air bags?

Yeah, air bags would probably be the answer because it is going to look ridiculous with a trailer hitched up. lol

well the gooseneck doesnt change much at all when it is hooked up, but a bumper trailer it will. i need to buy my own gooseneck but that is later on down the road.


you asked about caster bushings, i am thinking about building my own radius arms for it or 4 link if i can make it fit, but the easiest would be adjustable radius arms and then I can get the caster back in place.

Yeah, some new radius arms should be super easy for you to set up. Not that you tend to do things the easy way!

Bags in the rear forsure, my F150 is horrible now, but I don't tow much with it as I use too. It will be interesting on home much my Boss's F350 sags with our 29ft snowmobile trailer, cause his old dodge 2500 sagged alot with it.

If I go bags I might have to go with a stack. With the gooseneck hitch and a 5" exhaust there isnt much room at all for a set of bags. Sounds like a good reason for one. haha

Honestly I think it will be fine with a F350 block which will put it up about a 3/4" and I doubt it will sag that much with my ranger on there. It will be a few months before I try it though.

depends... you cant run any type of competition unless you have a stack now. And seriously who wants to switch out your exhaust every 5 days. I am not saying I will do something competition but its fun and if I get the opportunity I will.

I am not getting a stack to blow smoke, that is silly. It doesnt smoke much anyway and I dont really care for smoke.
