you all have what you like, some one else has what they like. work in progress
Itís not my cup of tea either. Itís just too tall to be practical.

Just because he likes it doesnít mean everyone else has to. You canít tell me you didnít see what happened coming when you created this thread.

woa there buddy. i highly doubt the 5.4 with stock gearing will spin those massive tires. maybe when they're wet.

dont care for the truck. if it was a bit more finished, to a show-like quality then it might be okay.

and it might have been 4wd stock, but there is definitely no front driveshaft in that monster. meaning its currently 2wd.

SAS for lift eh? possibly he has solid hubs, and doesn't want to be turning the front end because of gas mileage and only puts it in if he is going to use it off road

i disagree, i frankly don't give a flying **** what other people think about what vehicle i should be driving, or who is upgrading to what vehicles... i drive what i like, because i like it, not because other people tell me it's a nice looking vehicle...

nah man, every post you leave is about something that came up in conversation in a thread, but had nothing to do with the origional post... that's fine if you want to want to know something, but pm them, it's not about the origional post, and shouldn't be in the thread... i'm trying not to be a dick, but it's just been bugging me recently... and to be completely honest with you, i souldn't even be posting this one, it's not to do with the lifted f-250

oh it spins them. i didnt believe it would either but i was in the truck several times when he did it.

and yes it has a front drive shaft, it is not it the truck because it is being balanced at some shop in atlanta. the transfer case is clocked.

SOMETIMES HE CANT! stop making **** up.. its just stupid.. and you claim he knows diesels and "doesnt want one" you and/or him are both idiots for that statement! c'mon mang, cut the BS... post up a video of em spinning them, and if you claim you dont have a video, tell your homeboy to take one and send it to you so you can share with us!

anything would spin tires that big if it was rev'd to 5k and dumped. i could bearly spin stock tires in a f-250 reg cab, stock height that had an empty 250 gallon tank in the back, with wet ground and trust me, i tried....
now, to keep it on topic, that is overkill, the angle of those arches is insane. no wonder it's riding stiff and if there is no front driveshaft, it's 2wd. regardless if there is a TC or a front axel. that truck is impractical and is of no use to anyone except to drive around in. can you load stuf into the bed at that height? are you able to tow safely at that height without having some stupid looking, unsafe drop from the hitch?

like someone said, post up a vid of the burnout.

that is so not true.... with stock gears, huge tires, theres no way! you would have to have a BUILT clutch and tranny to hold it, the stock clutch would just burn and slip..

video of the burnout... I'm jumping on the BS band wagon....... unless he did it in low range? thats possible with "stock gears".

And, if you were to dump the clutch (assuming its a manual) with that much lift and those massive blocks the axle wrap would break ****. Ujoints or the drive shaft, possibly the yoke.
