Mostly b/c the deal was right on this.....

the ranger had some issues going on they were minor but still had issues EG. A/C was going out Ball joints needed repalced, CEL was on due to some evap leak or something, airbag light flashed that one is my fault though lol..... and rear left tire was starting to make some metal on metal noise when driving.

oh and it had 150k on it

Does it have the stock spark plugs? That will be a pain to replace most likely. But nice truck!

Some things I'm willing to pay someone to do, this would be one of those things.

Honestly I'm really liking how smooth and quiet it is, so for now I think its going to stay stock but maybe in time a leveling kit and a some what aggressive tire.

Awesome move man! I LOVE my F150. Everything about it, the leather, the ride, the creature comforts (power everything, sunroof, heated seats, etc...)

I have a AutoSpring 2.5" leveling kit up front (not sure if previous owner put in blocks or not in the back after the kit to make sure it was level). Also have Firestone airbags in the back to help with towing (lifts the back back up for better ride quality and more stable towing as well as makes it sit level again due to the leveling kit) Im also running 275/65/20 Nittos on 06 FX4 wheels. Also running a custom tune (VMP tunes 87 performance and 87 towing) on an XCal2. Have Efans on a controller, and the gotts mod. and im running some 09+ mirrors

Me next to a stock one similar to yours:







These are just some ideas for ya lol!

If you plan on keeping stock wheels, a 295/70/18 is a 34x11 and will sit perfect with the leveling kit. Trent Morgan is now running that size tire.

and to get your mod bug going....

I really like the way your truck sits, and that's prbly what I'll end up with at some point in time.

It seems that there comes a time, when you look at all the mods people have and kinda just want a stockish looking truck, but still modded and clean OEM looking...if you understand what I am saying. That is what I was looking for in my truck. Its not modded out, but it has the right mods without screaming, look at me!

F150online.com, F150Forum.com

also if you could find some 2012 DSG FX4 20s like these and throws the same tiresI have on them with the leveling kit, it would sit perfect IMO
