      If i had to do it all over again and I knew for certain I wouldn't run anything larger than a 31 then I would have went with shackles and f-150 coil spacers.

      If I had to do it all over again and I knew for certain I was going wheel it I would have done the SAS the first time I lifted it.

      Thanks for the compliments!

      Reason I asked is because I can get the entire lift (4" - 6") with axles off of a junk explorer for less than $500.

      I said 31's because it eliminates the need to re gear now, however, the have tracked down a 4.10 front differential about two hours away.

      I would certainly stop at 33's for a daily driver.

      It's like I predicted the future... minus the narrow part. I had someone on here tell me to do a dana 44/9" fw swap instead of lifting and gearing my stock suspension. I told them I didn't want to and I have plenty of parts for dana 35 so on and so forth. You can guess the rest haha.

      The Explorer and I are on bad terms. I may break up with her. She will be spending the winter in the garage.

      I know, photobucket ruined another build thread but rather than start all over I will just continue this one.

      I reached a point where I knew if I attempted the next phase of what I want the rig to be it would be tore apart in my garage for an eternity. With that being said I hauled the truck, the ton axles and the 40" MTRs to a shop for some winter work. Work has not started yet but I will post updates as they come. For now you can view this sad picture a friend took as he passed my caravan on the interstate.

      And yes, my F150 needs bags in the rear.
