Is this safe?

Saw this while I was lookin around on EBAY for some stuff. This is an F150 and I just can't imagine it being lifted that high with blocks could be safe. Is it?

I would never go over 3 inch blocks. I have an f150 with a v6 and had 4 inch blocks and noticed major axle wrap from what little power I have. I now have 1.5" blocks and add-a-leafs.







PS: My DAD has an 07 powerstroke and is why I am on this site.

No, if you look closely you can see they are stacked. Just plain dumb!

well, the powerstroke is out of commisson. not sure what its doing, but it aint runnin right. we will be pimpin the explorer...... hope I dont get stuck pullin into camp. if we do I will just tie a rope and pull it out by hand.

is it bad when you only have enough money to fix the truck or go ride quads so you went out and bought a hitch for your wifes suv so you can ride and just let ur truck sit?

Bad? No, man, I'd say that's a freakin' addiction! I would've probably done the same...

Way too much lift from blocks, stacked blocks.. and that's just a start of what's not safe with it. I'd like to know where this is located, and where it moves to if it sells. I want to do everything possible to make sure that it doesn't end up next to me on the road.

unfortunately it is down here by me.....

I am thinking of using that same setup on my F250. I figured I could get enough blocks for the front and rear for around $150. Pretty cheap for a 7-8inch lift.

forget the blocks just find some bricks and you'll have the same results for a much better price
