So you want a 6.4

Well you better have some cash! I got my 2008 f250 lariat 4x2 a few months ago. So far I've had all of the cooling system replace (for free). I've added a chrome package that includes all handles and mirrors. I bought some 22" radd rims and some 33" nitto grapplers. I leveled it 2" in the front and 1" in the rear. Procomp shocks all around. And I installed a blisten stabilizer shock. Sounds good right, looks good too. Now my problems. It pulls to the left after 3 alignments. The air pressure light stays on because the sensors won't link up. So now I gotta dump more money into it. It's just costly to get that look and make it work right. It's becoming more of a hassle than fun. And I haven't even touched the dpf and engine yet!

so let me get this right. you are *****ing because you added things to personalize it to your tastes, you are

1) Complaining about the cost of doing so

and

2) Complaining because of things you possibly have done to it causing problems?

time for a reality check.... welcome to the world of modifying a vehicle using aftermarket items.... jsut saying.

2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!

Did you replace the pan hard bar (trac bar) with the leveling kit? That could be causing your pull to the left.

Come on ZombieSoldier, I wish I had deep pockets. The OP just inspired me to keep dreaming of my future lift kit.
