well i got a dang good deal

well i went to a local off road shop monday to get prices on a lift kit and to install it on my 02 f250..the guy behind the counter tells me hes got a used procomp 6 incher for 600 bucks..all i need to do is buy shocks..which is a deal in itself.

then i go back this morning to set up the appointment to put it in monday..and hes like..ohh ya remember that lift i sold ya..that was actually a 8 inch lift not a 6..hahaha..so i made out pretty darn good for 600 bucks if i say so myself!

and a local tire shop told me i can pick out any KMC XD series wheel and wrap them in 37inch toyo MTs for around 2300ish...another pretty good deal

so im excited to get this lift in

and i got a edge programmer in the mail yesterday to..and a quadzilla intake...MBRP exhaust is next!
sorry for the long post..just excited!

if it was up to me and most others will agree, i'd get a refund on the Edge and get yourself a custom tuned chip and some gauges and your truck will run 10x's better and you won't need to replace your tranny

Awesome deal on the lift but I'd cancel the order of the Edge and get a custom tuned DP-Tuner or Tony Wildman Chip it will be a night and day diff over the Edge and your motor and tranny will be much happier and last longer

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

the price was 2500 for 37 inch tires on 20 inch wheels..and he said if i went with a 17 or 18 he'd knock qa few hundred off..so around 2300...and about the edge...ya i know it isnt the best one of the bunch...but im not looking for all out power really..i really like how it has the gauges on it already..and my buddy has one and loves it on his....the tranny i can see will need to be replaced anyways lol..so im not to concerned yet..but ill see how it does..and if i hate it..i can always sell it haha

don't worry about the "power" you won't get what the box says, the custom tuned chip will maximize the hp that your truck can produce as it sits now and will do it safer than the Edge will, plus it will tune to your tranny better for better shifting and a quicker response
