Leveled!

This was probably one of my harder installations I've done, just stubborn bolts. It rides so different now though, can't wait to get the back shocks in. My driveway slopes down so thats why it looks like it still has a little rack, it really doesn't though. It almost looks like the front might be a tad higher than the rear but it looks great IMO. New tires here very shortly, trying to decide on tire and size.

Harbor Freight, just bought a whole set of the deep impact sockets. Turned out it was a 29mm for a nut which autozone and sears don't carry individually.

I ended up getting the deep socket I needed at Discount. It stays in the door pocket just in case, I don't really trust my "tight as you can get it" routine when I reassembled it.

Yeah I know what you mean, my torque wrench only measures up to 150 ft/lb so I just tightened it as much as I could. 350ft/lb is a heck of a lot. I'll double check it when I rotate my tires.

Looks so much better now. Can't wait to see it when you get the 35's on there. By the way, terra grapplers look amazing on f150's.

Probably the Terra Grapps. I'd like to go with the ATZs but they are 100 more per tire. I can get the Terra Grapps out the door for $960, the ATZs are $1350.

Yeah one of my friends ran them on his super doody. He liked them alot in the snow and wet, but they looked too much like stock tires, so he got rid of them. I think he had them in 305's.

Yeah I wish the Dick Cepek's FC-IIs weren't so expensive, its kind of a cross between a AT and a MT so its a little more aggressive. Oh well, the Nittos should look good.

350ft/lbs is a joke.

I never tightened mine that much, but whatever, im not worried about it.

Looks good Trent.
