Picking up my F250 tomorrow...

Don't know what I'm thinking going from a BMW 135i to a F250, but it is more practical with the family and towing the boat. It's an '08 with 50K miles on a 6" procomp lift and 35" toyos. GoRhino Dominator II bars arrive tomorrow. I noticed there was some slight uneven wear and had the Ford Dealer align and balance, but the dealer claims everything was pretty much in spec. With the lift kit is there anything I need to be concerned about regarding extra maintenance or checks?

Truck looks good. Is it a King Ranch?

For piece of mind, you could check the bolts/nuts on the suspension, make sure everything is properly torqued. The dealer may have already check it themselves prior to selling, so you can ask them.

Think about some traction bars down the road, they will help with towing, especially since the axle wrap is more pronounced on a lifted truck.
