Default 30's

30's on stock rims or on 15x8 will look excellent and not give u any problems. or just run a 33x12.50 r15 with a 15x10 or 8 rim with 3 3/4 Back Spacing and slap on a 3" body lift

thats mine

It looks really nice!! I think I will have to dump my stock 14's and go with your setup.

I assumed it would sit a lot lower than that. You have a stock suspension, right? I have the 2WD, so will my chassis sit lower? I want to keep as much of a gap as possible in the fender well. Trucks with big tires look kinda silly with no wheel gap, IMO. Yours looks awesome.

If you have a coil sprung 2wd yes it will sit lower. Here is a pic of my 04 with your suspension but with a spindle lift on 32s:



Stock you run squeeze 30s.

heres completley stock 2wd with 30s, also its a little lower than previous years since ford changed the whole deal to get better gas mileage out of them, so yours with 30s will have a little more room in the wheel wells

woah woah woah...I totally didn't notice this in your build thread...but you have a sport with coils??? That does not make any sense. As far as I remember all Sport/EDGE models were torsion bar suspensions...can you take a snap shot of your front suspension??? I am curious now...

ask and you shall receive:



i thought at first it was just an xlt with a sport sticker slapped on the side, but its got everything the sport has, and coils, which i like. it must be a black sheep because i havnt seen any other sports like it.

Actually now that I think about it, I believe in 08 they did offer Sport with coils. What engine do you have?

Jay, 2wd EDGE/Sport came with t-bars. And then in the recent years I guess some Sports have coils.

Where are you located? Just curious, cause for an 08 seems to have a lot of oxidation on it...
