Truck looks amazing, Nicolle. 31's on a stock coilspring truck looks and fits alot better than I had previously known. Looks awesome! Though I probably wouldn't drive it the way I drive mine though. lol....fenders be hurtin'. lol.



I think your next mods should be Belltech 6400 shackles and lift coils or coil spacers. Get that thing the same height as a stock 4x4.

Yeah. Shackles are like $50 and springs aren't over $100. Get ya right about 1.5-2" lift all around and It'd look great...not stuffed. Truck really does look awesome I gotta say.

x2 on the belltech 6400 shackles, mines a 4x4 but it got me 2 inches of lift and you can't beat the price, easy to install, lets the rear flex a little more, and i always prefered an extended shackle rather than a block

Not tryin to blow up your thread or anything... lol


Shackles are a better option because you don't need new ubolts(which themselves can cost as much if not more than the shackles), you don't have to touch the u-bolts, and shackles are easier to install. And you add no additional wheel hop. Plus, the ride usually gets better with taller shackles. If you do go with blocks, find some stock ford ones. Stay away from aluminum blocks.

not sure what sizes they have.

i was only able to get new rims bc i found them so cheap. other wise i would still be riding on stock
Where did you get the rims? I just got a 31/10.5/15 General Grabber at2, the tread is extremely similar, but a different side wall, and I use the black lettering side.
