Hello....

Hi All,

I'm a central Illinoisan new to the org. I just bought a camper this year and turns out it was a good excuse to buy my first diesel truck, so now I got a 2005 F-250 CC LB 4x4. A couple questions.........

1. How big of tires can I fit on a stock truck or with leveling kit?

2. Is there any disadvantage to running a 5" exhaust vs. a 4" if you don't have it super souped up?

3. What is the best air intake, and does that affect whether or not you can do the zoodad mod? I've got my eye on a cool looking one from jobeperformance.com

4. And finally, are the plastic(read: billet) grille replacements any good?


Thanks for the help, look forward to meeting some of you in the future.
Ed

you should be able to clear 35's with a leveling kit..... only diff going from 4 to 5" exhaust is the sound... some people have said that they noticed a HP drop with going bigger......the best intake for your truck is the stock intake....unless your going to be doing high hp mods you dont need an aftermarket one.....nothing bad with the plastic grill replacement

Welcome aboard! It looks like Raul covered all the bases. Do you drive a 797?
