Thanks everyone, I am pretty happy with the truck. The only thing that bugs me is the reverse rake:thumbdwn:, just waiting on the AAL to show up and hopefully that will be fixed. Right now it sits at (R)34"/(L)34" on the front and (R)32"/(L)33" on the rear, measurements are to the center of the wheel arch.

I bought some SensorKleen yesterday and last night I cleaned the MAF and IAC. I also disconnected the battery for 10-15 minutes, guess I'll find out today whether or not my idle is any better.

I also ordered the Felpro MS90890 upper intake gasket kit and Ford Racing 4.6L 70mm throttle body. Can't wait until they come in so I can get them installed, I may do the plugs and wires at the same time.

Today I am going to a buddies place and we are going to install the Procomp Add a Leafs, hopefully it gets rid of the reverse rake. I'll post results of the install tonight.

Got the Add a Leafs installed today, wasn't too bad it only took a couple of hours with basic hand tools.

It looks like I gained 1 to 1.25" on the passenger side and the drivers side I can't really tell. When I measured it before it was 33" and today when I measured it was also 33". I have a full tank of gas right now and I can't remember if the tank was full or empty when I measured before:p:.

It looks like I am still going to have to do the shackles.

This weekend I am going to try to install my Flex-a-Lite Black Magic Electric Fan (# 180). I will try to remember to take some pictures during the install.:)
