DSTRBD & OCVeloMan, thanks for replying. I do appreciate the feedback. I definitely had my worries regarding the Pro Comp level kit as I had no success finding any real reviews except for Pro Comp's own product overview. Also, I couldn't find a single example of a Super Duty with their 3.5" Nitro Level Kit installed.
I addressed my concerns to the manager at 4-Wheel Parts and he assured me this will be a nice set-up. He seems like an honest guy when responding to my wishes for a more reputable manufacturer saying he thought an Icon suspension level kit would be a great choice if I were to be regularly off-roading, but as a Houston city-driver it would be hard to notice a difference. I kept in mind that 4-Wheel Parts will only deal with the vendors they endorse. He also stated that with the 35x12.5 tires and 20x10 rims, I will need that extra inch of the 3.5" Nitro Kit to avoid contact issues.
I then brought up the use of aftermarket shocks and he suggested that installing Bilsteins would be great idea. Could either of you give me some feedback on good aftermarket shocks?....I will be driving on pavement most likely 90% of the time, but I may need to hop the occasional curb or drive over a median at times. OCVeloMan, I will need new tires soon but hopefully later, and I will surely consider some Toyo Open Country M/Ts. I am very fond of their popularity and do find their appearance appealing.
It's going to take up to 3 weeks for the American Force Rebels to come in and I'll be posting pictures when the final product is finished. Thanks for the replies and please keep sharing feedback as I will have this truck for at least the next 3-5 years so theres plenty of time for improvements.
