I'm not sure what level kit was put on my truck, but it rides like poop. Can't wait to replace it with a quality 6" lift.

11 Lariat
6" lift, 37's, Moto Metals, H&S, SPE, JL SPL2K

I regret the slide into the tree mod. I did it last winter. In the driveway at my old house. I knew I should have cut the tree down instead of limbing it.

All it cost me was a taillight, and a two fist sized dents exactly above and below the taillight. Had a wrap-around driveway and was just driving around to the parking spot, and the rears fell into what i would barely call a rut and smacked the tree.

Other than that, I regret stacking an Edge Evolution set to extreme, on top of a shift on the fly juice with attitude. Luckily I know a tranny guy, and luckily the forward clutches welded themselves together, instead of the drum. That was a costly mistake. SCT all the way!

edit: just realized this was a 6.7 thread. OOPS!

Its okay I wanted it to be a catch all. All years welcome! I am new to the diesel scene and wanted to see what people have learned both good and bad. What products people are using also. I know Mustangs trucks like this not so much.
