2011 F250 Project

I am building a project truck for my company. We do alot of installation and review videos for automotive products. I have already added a few things, but here is what we have planned as well. We are not going crazy (This is my personal, daily driver) but as I said, I use it in the promotional vidoes as well. I would appriciate any input. Any experiences you have had with these companies, or products, or any other products you would suggest we add.

Thank you!

SlickYamaha what gears are you running in your truck? If you have the 3.73s I'd highly suggest an upgrade to at least 4.30s minimum for 37" tires. With Ford changing the splines on the 2011+ rear sterling axle Im not sure if you can get anything lower than a 4.30 right now. I use to have a 2010 F150 5.4 with 3.73s on 35s and any bit of wind or any slight incline on the highway and it was constantly hunting for gears. I know that the 6.2 does have more power than the 5.4 but the F250 is also a lot heavier. Just a heads up if you havent considered this yet. Other than that you have a pretty sweet truck.

2011 F350 Lariat FX4, CCSB, 6.7, 3.55s, 325/65R18 Duratracs, Carli 4.5" Pintop, Flo-Pro, S&B intake, H&S w/ SPE tuning.
2011 Explorer Limited 4WD on 17x7.5s Core Racing Diablo 2s with 245/70R17 Duratracs
