Contacted Coilsprings.com today and ordered 3" front springs, and 2" rear.
Then I decided I should get some tires.
So I called National 4wd, after talking a bunch with the guy working there, I decided to go with Dick Cepek Mud country.
I decided if I went with a little larger offset rim, I could go with some bigger rubber ;)
So I ordered some Ultra Type 175 Rouges.

285/75 16's for the tires.

I'll post some pics when I get everything on. :thumbsup:

By the way, I can't vouch for the product yet, but the crew at coilsprings.com were great to deal with, barring any huge issues when they show up, I'd recommend then.

Thanks for listening to my babble.

Ben.

It doesn't look much different than it did in this pic, the only thing I've added was a hood deflector.
And I took off the running boards.
 






Picture taken tonight

Figured I'd play with the camera a bit on my lunch break.

Yeah, I'll be raising the truck.
Not really into dropping a 4x4, just not my thing. ;)

Cheers

Will do. :)
Gonna be a couple or three weeks till my springs show up, the wait is KILLING me.
My Tires are being delivered to me on Saturday, and my new Rims come next week.
Can't wait for it all to come together.

How Long ago did you order them?
Still waiting on them I assume?
 






you should debadge, it really makes it look more symmetrical and clean

LOL,
good call.
I was saying in the debadging thread that I'm going to. :thumbsup:
I'd also like to do the billet grille, Love the looks.
Thanks for the tip, I'll update with photos as I go.

Cheers

Ben.

I also decided I didn't like the offset on the Ultra rims, so I got my guy to change the order, I'm now getting black DC-1's.

haha way to use the kid as a photo prop... nice tires though and the rims will help add a nice touch... cant wait to see the final result:thumbsup:
 






I'm glad you posted the before pic. She is going to look totally different. You ought to hit the junk yard and find yourself a set of F150 tow hooks. No dought you'll want to pull on something (or someone) when you get all that rubber mounted.
By the way. Where did the hood deflector come from? I want one and I like the one you installed.

It's a "bugflector II" by Lund/autoventshade. Pretty sure the part number is 25903.
Can probably get it pretty easily at any auto parts place. :thumbsup:
That's a great Idea, I forgot all about the tow hook holes in the front.

Thanks for the suggestion.


cheers

Ben.
 






Just got off the phone with Virginia from coilspring specialties, My springs shipped on the 14th.
She gave me the ups tracking number and they are expected to deliver on Thursday, the 22nd.
Can't wait!!
