I think it looks stupid when the tires are bigger than the wheel wells. It also seems stupid to power a truck along as big as that is with leaf springs bent like a U and huge lift blocks. It definitely needs a four-link or something.

im not sure, i know hes gonna set up rear stear. and i believe hes talking about some kind of air ride or air bag suspension for a smooth ride. its ROUGH now, but its them leaf springs and a flat spot on a tire causing that

trucks lifted like that IMO are THE gayest thing on earth. whats the point? obviously compensating for something...id never put anything bigger than the fenderwells as said above. theres 2 or 3 f250/350s around town like that. ones a PS and the other is a 5.4 gasser. PS isnt AS bad but its still stupid. just someone that thinks they gotta have the biggest and best thing compared to everyone else. most of the guys that drive em are complete *** hats too... at least around here

wow what a nice group of dumbasses half of you guys are. the guy built what he likes. problem? yeah its gas, the guy knows diesels inside and out but doesnt want one. the 5.4 in that truck will spin those 46 no problem with stock gears, i was in the truck several times when he did it. so its stupid for someone to build what they like in their spare time? sorry i didnt know. and 2wd? its definatly 4wd buddy. it even works and locks in too

you all have what you like, some one else has what they like. work in progress

Not to be a D-bag, but there's clearly no front drive shaft in the posted pictures.
