Either way nice truck Zach. It kind of looks like it needs an alignment though. Not sure if that's just the pic or not. Let's get some interior pics.

EDIT: Zach I just noticed its got BFG's on it. Better take care of that quick like!! We can't have no BFG's on any of your rides lol.
Not my 6.4, thats another reason I didnt want it. To me it ran too rich, yet everyone said it was fine. 11mpg fine? idk it is like luck of the draw with the 6.4 Some guys got 18 some got 11 like me. Like I said I down graded for 2 reasons, less things to worry about and money. I want to do other things that are important to me right now.

I think it does need one, but its not horrible, those tires have 55k miles on them and are near shot. I am not sure what I want to do yet. If I get new tires I may lower it back down and have it aligned but we will see. I did order my air bags so I can tow the ranger next weekend.

Ryan you know me way too well for never meeting me. I absolutely hate these freaking tires. It wont take long before i buy some more because YUCK thats all I have. IT makes the truck look old.

Why lower it back down when in 4 months it will have a 4" Rancho with 35" mud grapplers?

because it wont have a 4" lift. As much as Id like to lift it I wont unless I sell the ranger. So Keep the ranger or lift the F150?

I already bought a tuner and about to buy new shocks. Then alignment on the way and maybe new tires soon. It really just needs new tires but I dont want to wear them out funny.

Ordered some Bilstein shocks all around today. Get those installed then alignment, see if any balljoints need replaced then I will be saving for some tires.

Zach... I gotta laugh.... you go from Page 1 where you aren't going to buy anything until spring, and by Page 4 which is 1 week later, you've purchased a new truck and are already buying parts left and right for it!

Haha... all the more power to ya man! Just giving ya guff...
