Who wants to put more in their truck than it is worth? I already do that replacing Ford parts so it will run.

So quick question. Just want to make sure that this IS the reason but ever since the lift went on, whenever I turn the wheel full left or right I lose all pressure in the brake pedel and have to pump it one or two times. Is this cus I still havent put my steering stops back in and its over stretching my brake cable?

Did you ever extend your brake lines? You need to do that.

I don't really like the molded in mudflaps that much. You wouldn't want those monster tires sticking to far out of the fenders either.....

Dont get the ones with the molded in mudflaps. the flaps do nothing but get in the way. My truck came with them and i replaced them. Also your truck doesnt have the mounting holes already in the bedside for them so it would be quite a bit of work to mount them on your truck.
