Finally got the f450 lifted w the we bed on

Been awhile since I've been on the forum. Finally had some down time and put some new parts on the truck. This is my 2012 f450 pick up I ended up taking the stock bed off And putting a aluminum bed on. Made a lot of sense for me I work this truck a bit, tow a ton and spend alittle time offroad. the stock bed was stressing me out scratching it! Gives a lot better visibility,lighterthen stock and I don't have to worry about brush running down the fenders and scratching the sh*t out the fenders! I'm really happy with the quality of the bed fit- finish install wasn't to bad. I installed a new back up camera that was pain didn't want to cut anything so i did via new harnesses and camera. I'm also fabricating aluminum mount for the sensors should be on tomorrow along with a few more clear LEDs.
Bed looks a little short but it measure 9' I guess it's the lines!

I did the icon 4.5 stage 3 lift with the steering stabilizer kit. 2.5'S all the way around with the 2.0's on the stabilizers.this setup rides like a dream I love it!its little nose high for me but like i said this truck works!
for the wheels is did the American force fusion 22.5's . I do not notice a significant power drop and they ride great I'm sure the icon kit has a lot to do with it. The tires are 36" speedos off that sucks hopefully I can find a programmer to fix that.With the 4.30 rear end the new tire put me right were I want to be with rpms on the freeway. I'm think there will be a substantial mpg gain in the 65-75 mph range.

Just thought I'd share!
Overall I'm real happy with the truck alittle more bling then i usually like but it's grown on me!what do you guys think.
