Saying hello from CT

Hello, Im new to the forum, my name is Kris....I love working on my truck and trying to figure out ways to make it better. However i dont really go off-roading with it, (its my full time vehicle) but i would love to make it my toy one day.
got lots of dreams for her but who knows if they will come true. in the mean time i would like to bring forth my experiences, answers and questions to the forum.
thank you

Hey man,

I'm in CT too. I'm on the shoreline though. Not that many places to offroad around here, but I've got my spots. Even if you never take it off the pavement, they are a great truck, and fun to work on as well!

new question...yours is a lil newer than mine, but was one of your adjuster screws out more than the other when you went to go adjust them...my passenger side bolt was much further out that the driver side.

Im not sure, but that might have something to do with Ford considering the weight of the driver+gas tank when tuning the suspension.
