Honestly...I wouldn't worry about them as long as the picture shows they don't look chincy. I had some AC Smelco...I mean Delco's that crapped out on my on my other truck, bought a cheapo brand through a buddy for half the price and they look damn good, and work a trillion times better. Picked up an mpg too!

No problem, I've learned over time, piddly crap like wires don't generally matter what brand, its quality. Now if you are buying a transmission, that I would buy from Ford or someone you trust. Not Jose's cheapo back alley shop. Wires aren't to much of a worry

Thanks, I love it too! I like your truck to. When I was searching for trucks when I was 16 to get my first vehicle, I almost brought home a truck with the same options as yours. Glad I didn't, it needed love, I found my cherry GMC for the same price and 6 years newer, not to mention 140k less miles. But it would have been a good truck too! I wish I had it now to beat on though lol

4 inch...go 33s! Do the BL, its far cheaper. I'd help if you were closer lol I'm doing mine when I need new tires.

I paid for all of my vehicles, my parents helped on the GMC, but I paid them back in full before I turned 18. I owe no one anything for the vehicles I own

What gears are in your truck? I have 3.73s that I may switch out, but with this truck I may not need to. If you put 33s it'll drop you to maybe 16, but I can't tell you for certain. And can I get a lift from that guy to and make payments? lol

I was once against BL's too, but honestly...as long as you aren't doing 12 inches of BL, you aren't hurting anything. As well as the main part of the weight of your truck is still lower to the ground...safer...and you keep stock suspension geometry. Plus TTBs tend to hate life suspension lifted if you beat on them. I'm not talking a little wheeling...I'm talking BEATING

Not bad. I know it says factory alignment, but it puts your driveline at a different angle that Ford didn't design for it, putting more strain on the axle. Not a hell of a lot, but not the best thing ever lol
