Lifting the truck

Well I broke down and decided I would lift my truck. Went with the 6" lift radius arm drop kit from Rough Country. Everything has gone together pretty well so far, besides instructions not being very good on what tools.

To get the pitman arm bolt off, it takes a massive socket or wrench and I am still working on that part but had to go in to work for the rest of the night, so my buddies are going to finish the job for me.

We started with the front and it went together smooth and have a few minor set backs and we will be finished up and the back should be cake.

Pictures will be up soon!

Hopefully it doesn't look too bad with 35's because I literally just bought them. Got 35x12.5x17 Fierce Attitude MT's for just over $1000 and I mounted and balanced them myself.

I got my pitman arm nut off with a pair of channel locks. The scary thing is I just had the steering box replaced by a ford dealership.

It was a very scary process haha. Had to use a 44mm socket and direction said to use a 34, so that may be a typo or something.

34 should be right unless ford replaced your gearbox with one that had a bgger shaft. Or someone put a much 44mm nut on it

Really? I guess so, we didn't have a 34 in the garage but had a random 35 laying around and it was way too small, so I got to make an extra trip to the shop.
