Cool Next on the to do list is level it

Well, I washed and waxed the truck today and when I parked it I thought to myself, "Man that's a nice looking truck...except that ugly raked look." That's it I need to level it.

Do ya'll agree?

I am very happy with the way my truck sits now that is leveledI will say that when towing it looks like its really squatting..... these trucks sag in the rear as it is when loaded somewhat heavy even a 350 stock height, but bags will fix that... comming soon

Absolutly LEVEL it. I leveled my 06 F150 and it was like getting a 2inch lift kit installed. It sits higher and you feel like your in a bigger truck.

I understand why the rear is higher from the factory so when you weigh it down it sits level but i still dont like it. All trucks should come standard leveled. Then you can spend you money on air bags yay

I want to level mine too. I have bags on mine so when I tow it won't look

pizza pig, check these guys out for the bags. ---> Firestone 2400 Ride-Rite Air Bags - Ford F250, F350 (2005-2007) | $278.96 Was the best deal I could find when I got mine. Complete bolt on kit.

Ive been looking at this kit for a while. Price changes from 250 down to 200 on occasion. I had same kit on my F150 and i got the on board compressor and gauge with it already. Planning on pulling the trigger in the next 2 weeks.

SPacers are the way to go on the front, but then of course when you haul the rear will sag as it did before but since your leveled it really shows lol.

Yea bags have came down in price a ton. Thanks to the low riders who made bagging your car a common thing.
