2000 F150

My girlfriend drives a 2000 F150 2wd with the 5.4 v8. The more she hangs around me (muahaha), the more she wants to do something to her truck. I can do all the labor for her but have some questions:

How big of a tire can she go without rubbing? I'm thinking 31x10.5 without rubbing

For just an inch or two of lift, I can get her some rear blocks and front coil spacers. I know it's not the best kind of lift but it's a cheap and conservative lift. About how much would those parts cost? I've done it on other trucks but was always given the parts.

How much would it be to put on dual flowmasters?

Thanks yall.

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

T-bars in the front I just realized. Shows how much I know about the F150s!

well, my f150 is the same but 4x4 offroad version. mine has 32s on it with no lift, level or anything. with just a level you should be able to do 31s just fine. I had a single flowmaster on mine for a while but didn't like it too much. I have a single cherry bomb and love it. it sounds great, performs great and is cheap. a SI SO flowmaster is about 80 or 90 if I remember right.

Uh, if that truck has torsion bars in the front then it's a 4x4. 2wd trucks have coil springs. I used to have a 1999. Biggest tire you can fit on a stock height 2wd is 265/75/16.

Thanks for the info. I haven't looked at her front suspension in detail yet but I'll take your word from it. I'm assuming she has coilovers then. I know ride quality will suffer but I figure I could get her an inch or two via spacers up front and blocks in the back. Any other ideas on brand, type, etc? I'm not opposed to taking the coils apart but new springs and shocks will start to add up. Thanks!

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

you could get a leveling kit which would give you around 2" in the front

Was just thinking that. 2" leveling springs would run me around $130 and would be easy enough. If we like the rear-up look, I could always throw some 2" blocks in the rear at a later time. What size tires might I get with that 2"? Preferably some wider than stock tires would look best.
