Default 04 F250 Getting Jacked

Heres my F250, adding a 6" rough country suspension lift, 35" pro comp xtreme a/t's and 20" KMC XD Hoss' . Did the back last night, nothing exciting just lift blocks,shocks, and carrier bearing drop shims, started on the front this morning. F'd up the steering gear nut taking the old pitman arm off, new one will be here monday so that blows... Will finish the pass. side tonight and wait for the nut

Looks good, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

I'm going to be throwing a set of 20" KMC Monsters on my truck after I kill these nittos, they sure are lasting a lot longer than I figured they would thoughy.

Ya they look kinda small with the 20s but i like em, got the pass side done, now im wishing i bought 37s ,lol the front looks pretty high im sure it will settle after a few miles. No shock boots, thought they would come with but guess not, i'll order those when i order the dual front shock kit and dual steering dampner kit. Heres some night pics, i'll take more when its completely done on monday.

It was a quite a toss up between monsters and hoss's... finally i decided on the hoss' cause they are gloss finish and the monsters are matte, i wanted a little shine, but I think the monsters are still bad ass. how many miles on the nittos?

Yeah, I have seen a few trucks with the monsters and I really like the style, same with the Hoss's. I was set on the rockstars at first, but now every other truck has them...so I want something a little different. Right now, I have about 25k on the nittos and there is still a lot of tread left. I will probably get around 35-40k out of them all together, which is a lot more than I figured.

Most new lifts on the market for the superdutys go with the "Cali rake" where the front is 2-3" higher than the back. If you want to level it out, pick up a set of factory F-350 blocks for the rear end, and it should sit pretty level.

it wasn't meant either way(good or bad)...I just think it looks like those cars in the rap videos...me personally, I would have left it stock, but its yours not mine, so do what you will with it...
