Trucks looking good. I say just try out the leveling kit. If you dont like... take it off.

I think it would look a heck of a lot better with that 2" kit on there.

I dont mind the bed at all. its so much deeper and wider than the ranger bed it seems huge! now its even shorter with the tool box. I dont use the bed much though, for me its always the trailer.

Geez, when did this become a "post pics of leveled f150's" thread?



























Okay fine, everyone else is doing it. Here's a reminder of what mine looks like.

I almost posted a link earlier to these... http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/pts/983210408.html
Not sure if you want to go that big (I think 33's are a better fit especially for towing), and the wheels are 9" wide, probably pushing it for fitting with a leveling kit. The backspacing is close to stock but I'm pretty sure they extra width would cause the tires to contact the plastic in the back of the fender and the lower bumper when turning. My 35's on stockers come pretty close as it is.

i knew those looked familiar.. he has them posted on f150online.com too. he has listed that there's about 12/32 of tread left.. how many more miles do you figure they'd go? (out of curiousity)

I didn't notice the tread, just came across them looking for other stuff.
The Toyo's last quite a while, but I don't normally like used tires much anyway. I usually sell mine when they get a little lower than that.
