not here bro, frame was straight up making love with the ground haha, couldnt go forward cus tires werent touching and the 4x4 would have just dug the rear farther down and go backwards you just push dirt and get no where.

you need a trailer hitch. One day your shackle (im guessing thats what you used) will give out if you keep using it as a tow point. even worse if you wrapped it on the axle

I will be pulling my hitch off before i trade the truck in if you need one....Giving the cap to my nephew, selling the tires and rims, putting the stock alum rims back on with some pro comp a/t's that are useless. swapping the radio back to stock and swapping my component sets back to the factory ones..
Upgrading to a 2011 F-150 FX4 in the next week or so....
