Before and After Pics Icon Stage 1 Leveling Kit 2.5"

As stated, pics for my 2010 F250 CCSB Lariat FX4. Other mods with this kit were the adjustable track bar, 4" Block in Rear, and bilstein steering stabilizer upgrade. Enjoy and PM me with any questions. I did a decent review on the other thread labeled just like this one--I'm starting one for Pics only so y'all don't have to try and find the post with the pics.

Not the best pics, but it's all I have of before. I'm going to get some better after pics once i have time...whenever that is! Excuse my little house/garage--it works for me though!

some other pics...

Train horns, CCV Mod--why not...did them around the same time.

My train horns are very cleanly hooked up. Compressor kept in the toolbox, drilled/gromet holes in the toolbox and lower corner of my bed, then ran the stiff hard plastic lines to the horns. They sound as clean and clear as they look.

For the CCV mod, it cost me about $50 and took about 20 min. I bought a stainless steel filter ($20 at AA), 10' heater hose ($20), plug/clamps ($10). I wanted to do it right.

So i haven't seen anyone do this, but i took the elbow from the CAI, turned it around and installed as shown. Plugged her up, ran down near the pass. fender well, ziptied and zigg-zagged through the pass. frame and out near the train horns. In just two short weeks, you can already see the amount of oil mist and residue that vents from our cranck case. I'm super glad I did this Mod at just 60K miles. It's so cheap and so silly not to if you live in a safe state without testing. Even with testing, I didn't have to cut any of the existing tubing, and I kept the old hard plastic elbow just in case.

Anywho, feel free to ask questions as needed. Hope this helps some of y'all.

Never has and prolly never will until I build my next house. I'm an engineer for Boeing and I work 60-80 hours a week trying to save money to sell my current house and buy a bigger lot and build myself a shop. I plan for the shop to be much bigger so I can park the truck in it. Garage too.

Takes time and money to do all that and between work, helping my dad build his house, and trying to enjoy life a little at the age of 26, I'm pretty booked.

I can't really complain though. I'm a happy dood. Thanks for the kind words. Feel free to ask any questions!!!

Looks good, how long did the rear block install actually take itself? I am doing the front leveling kit this weekend. But haven't ordered 4 inch blocks yet as I just confirmed yesterday that is the recommended height for the 2.5 levelers to keep it level with trailer on and slight rake without.
