I agree, lifted just looks to redneckish I guess. A clean level looks good IMO

yeah Zack thats what i think makes them look so weird is the big crossmember hanging down. That and the body just looks so huge sometimes. I think the guys on here than have just leveling kits and 35's looks perfect

I agree with you. Trent has a real sharp set up as far as modifying a newer F-150, subtle but clean and sharp.

Is the door dented/wrinkled or is it just bad shadows on it?

I looked at it in other pictures and didn't see it, but figured I'd still ask.

looks good...and as far as lifting it, i know what you mean. Some look real nice though if you get the right offset wheel and some bushwacker flares. My budd has one that same color with a 6" fabtech, 3" body, flares and some 38s with mickey thompson mtz's and it has a great stance. Its so quick too, through some straight pipes, AEM intake, Roush stage I tuner kit and Edge programmer.

theres so much you can do to those trucks to make them more awsome than they are stock. id be happy with the stock 20's and a nice meaty tire.

this isnt it but this is my other buddys, you might not like how it looks but i think its pretty nice.

i do like how that one looks. they can look good but it has to be the right combo of wheels, tires and offset.
