x2 (02' F250, and now 02' Excursion) worth dealing with the rough ride for the sake of maintenance and spring upgrades (which I have found to be essential on the Excursion, F250 was fine stock).

Dodge had perfected the solid front axle suspension for their half-ton's, but then they got rid of it. Compared to other half-tons at the time, they didn't ride that much worse if at all than the IFS trucks.

Lifting SFA is soooo much cheaper than properly lifting an IFS rig.
