Just a FYI, I got something from 4wheelparts and Rancho/4wheelparts has a $500 mail-in-rebate on Rancho kits right now, I'm at work, so I dont have the thing in front of me to give you all the details...something to check into though.

EDIT

Here are the details, it's on the site...

patience! its the best thing you can learn. things popup for sale all the time, take your time and do it right. i have found that it is a lot more fun to save up and work for something then buy it rather then buy everything at once and get it done in one day.

There is a lot of truth to that. I think if I had a bunch of money and did all of the mods at once, it would be awesome for about six months. Then I would just want something new. lol

Hey I just saw that ad. It'll be cheaper if you buy it straight from PHP, theres a sale right now for $385 with 1 custom tune and when you buy it from them the tunes are $30 and not $60.

Oh I thought the ad said 350.

325 with no custom tunes. 3 custom tunes at 60 each = 180. So your looking at $505 now.

385 with 1 custom tune. 2 custom tunes at 30 each = 60. $445

Just putting that out there...lol

I would get it tuned for what your planning on putting on the truck in the near future. Remember those tunes won't work if you do go with a supercharger though. Also mention you plan on lifting and 35s, I don't know if they change anything for that but just let them know everything your going to do.

The order form to fill it out is a little confusing so just post up here if you have any questions. Gave me a headache first time I filled it out lol

It should be right on the page.


Ohhhh I see they're giving you free shipping which is where the 15 off is coming from. Everyone on F150online has been saying 385 so I thought thats what the shipped price was.

Your still saving money in the long run though

Correct. I heard they reduced the waiting time but I don't know. I got my custom tunes within 2 weeks of sending mine in, it took Zach a bit longer though to get his. You'll get it with the canned tunes in a few days, its the custom tunes that take a while.
