New F250, let the mods begin!

Updated with stock pictures before mods on page 4
Updated with pictures of the suspension setup on pages 6 and 7
Updated with full exterior photos w/ wheels lift installed page 8
Updated with lots of current up to date photos page 10 6/22/2011

Just got my new 2011 F250 CC SB Lariate in Platinum White about a week and a half ago. So far, I am LOVING this thing! It's my first truck ever, and I wish I had one before. I was missing out for sure.

I have already added a LineX bed liner, and the Ford cable lock.

On order, I have 20" KMC Addicts in black, and 35" Toyo Open Country MT's. I also have on order an Icon 2.5" Stage 4 suspension package. I think I am the first one with this package on an 11 F250.

System Contains
6-2510 - 2.5" Lift Dual Rate Coil-Spring w/ Alignment Cam Kit
6-7700 - Front 2.5" Piggy-Back Shocks
3-7701 - Rear 2.5" Piggy-Back Shocks
6-4031 - Adjustable Pan-Rod Bar With Bearing
6-5000 - Sterring Stabilizer Bracket Kit
3-7504 - Steering Stabilizer Shocks (Pair)

Also includes 4" blocks and U-Bolts for the rear. I only wanted 2.5" of lift because I will be driving this thing every day. I wanted it to clear 35's, ride better then stock, and still be able to clear every parking garage, ect, I also did not want to ruin gas mileage much. It will also be towing my drag car, so another reason to to raise it much.

All this is scheduled to be installed on the 22nd-23rd next week!

Next? Truck Cover USA rolling tonneau cover, AMP Research power steps, painted front grill to match the truck, HID headlights and fog lights, and then stereo.

I thought I would be able to buy a truck and leave it mostly stock unlike my other cars.. Boy was I wrong!

I want to do full exhaust and a tuner.. But am afraid of messing up my warranty.. I got the 6yr 100k extended. What do you guys think?

Will post pics after everything is installed.

Ordered an AFE DPF back exhaust.. Not sure if I'll ever remove the DPF and get a tuner. I'd like to, but I also like my warranty.

Trying to see right now if Icon is getting my suspension to me on time (today) as I expected.. Waiting for a call back. Crossing my fingers!

Also, towed my drag car a couple hundred miles yesterday. First time ever towing a thing in my life. All I can say is, this truck made it effortless! Very awesome..

Icon pulled a FAIL on me.. Won't have the suspension parts until after the first of the year

Worth the wait I guess.

Icon STILL has not gotten my lift kit to me.. Still waiting on the exhaust also.

My 3rd gear had some kind of hiccup in the middle of third gear, so it went in for warranty. Turns out Ford released a reflash for the transmission, and it fixed the problem. Anyone else experience this? Also had a slight pull to the right that they had to order a part for.. Picking it up tomorrow. I'm also gonna get on Icons *** at this point tomorrow also.
