My '03 FX4: Updated Pics Athens, Ohio

Hey all, been a while since I posted, just wanted to upload some new pics of my truck, installed add-a-leafs in the rear and aftermarket torsion keys in the front, which allowed for an upgrade to 285/75/16 (33") Kumho Road Venture MT's (from the 265/75/16 BFG All-Terrains) as well as a new MBRP exhaust.

Before: (no lift, BFG All-Terrains, Gibson dual exhaust)









After: (add-a-leaf, aftermarket torsion keys, 33" Kumho's, MBRP Cat-Back)

Do you like the exhaust? I've been waiting for a member to get back to me about a used one for 2-3 months now.
The AAL's lift you about 2-3". At least it did with mine.

Thanks guys! No MBRP vids yet but im working on it!
morris, i love it, its got a nice tone to it and its plenty loud, (not like !muffler loud but u can still hear it) which is what i like. You can look straight through the muffler lol, and you are right, the aal added about 2.5", and the torsion keys got me another couple inches

You would be correct, as a result of colliding with a monster buck at 65 mph... And the paint guy screwed up....

Love the cowl induction hood. They are like $500 from LMCtruck. I would kill for one, you don't see many.

Not sure how I feel about the chrome grille....

Truck looks sweet. How long have you had the keys installed? How has your front suspension been holding up? Any negatives?

Thanks! A little over a year now, and the front suspension's still doing fine. My ride quality didnt go down that much either, considering, its still a smooth ride for a 4x4 truck. No negatives to report of, just positives including the improved ride heighth. I know that installing these keys increases the pressure on the actual torsion bars, meaning they might wear out faster.
