Sounds like your doing civil engineering from the course work? Do well in technical writing it really comes in handy.
Yeah I'm a civil.

Lol it's all what you do with the degree, mine is material science and engineering and I do everything from electrical, to facilities, to design and manufacture.

The materials classes I took in college were some of my favorite ones. The role I'm currently in is more about management of equipment and maintenance planning than engineering, though. Sometimes I miss the design work, but then I think about all of the calculations and suddenly I don't miss it anymore haha.

knocked another project off the list tonight. Got my rear bed sides cut open and new flares installed. did not go as drastic as the front but now I should have full clearance for my 33s and hopefully be able to sneak in some 35s

lining up the new flexible flare to mark for my cuts



cut line



all cut out



bonding on my edge guard



hmm where did this come from



first side done!



next up!



all done!



wheeling this weekend so I will get to test out the new clearance

oh and this is why I needed to cut the bed. long travel plus lots of articulation = lots of rubbing.

I think you could fit a 35 in there pretty easily

At ride height it's no problem, when the suspension moves I run into issues. Going to test a friends and see how they do.

I'd stick with the 33's, keeps your fenders alive haha. If you did switch up to 35's would you bump up the supercharger boost?

Nope stock heads and bottom end. Running a larger fuel pump but that's about it. You don't really start seeing issues until 8-12 psi and I'm running 3 so I should be good for a long time. If it fails I will look into something else.

Do you notice a big difference at 3? At what point, besides internals.. would you need to upgrade stuff like injectors? 6?

Up front inner fender will bash the tire, rear I should have enough clearance now but that may change when I finish the rear suspension and have full travel.

Full width F150 8.8 with an ARB or Eaton E locker

ya it makes a big difference, another 30 or so HP anything above 3psi larger injectors and tuning is needed. next stage will be intercooler, 5.5 PSI 39lb injectors 90mm MAF and dyno tuning.

Ya the VSS is on the pinion on my 03 the 150 uses the same sensor and the yoke is supposedly the same so it makes for a super easy swap.

Hmmm interesting. With the full float d60 I'm rebuilding I was just planning on swapping to a 95-97 transfer case to get the speed sensor. My t case is on the fritz anyways

The speed sensor is in the trans tail housing. The only sensor in the rear-end on an 03 is for rabs.

I just noticed yours is an auto, it's in the trans on yours. On a manual it's in the trans tail housing. I just assume everyone has a manual trans lol. 01+ have the oss in the trans, and rabs sensor in the rearend. 98-00 rabs sensor doubled as the vss.

The abs will still limit your choices in axles, if you care about that kind of thing of course.

I do want to keep the ABS in tact if possible, thanks for the info!
