I hear ya! I tried that today, and the tabs of the valance snapped out, i would've probably folded my valance back into my skid plate if I had tried to go any farther! The snow piles need less slope lol

eh, I wont go bigger then 32s and a 3-4 inch lift


Technically, I can't even legally run 32s in Maine on my trac. With factory ABS, I can only go up one (1) size in tires, which would be around a 31. Also, I can only run lifts that are made for the vehicle, as in no ghetto fab lifts.


I could try and get my PCM flashed for 33s, just not sure if Ford can do it. With proof of flashing, I can run whatever size I want.

No rear license plate? Or is it burriesd in snow behind the spare tire carrier where you can barely see it anyways?

Looking good! It sounds like Maine has some funky vehicle modification laws!

You can flash the PCM with what ever size you want. use IDS and you need to know the Rotational mass
