To Lift or Not to Lift
Fellas...I have a 2007 F350 Lariat CCLB 6.0 all stock, oem 20s, with 76k, problem free and still under warranty...oh, and a former ROTM winner! I've always wanted to lift and lightly mod a truck and I doubt I'll buy another one considering the one I built online the other night was $68k+.
I guess I'm looking for some pros/cons whether to do a 6" lift w/20x10" wheels and 35-37" tires from those of you who have. Was it hard on the the transmission or drivetrain? How much of an impact did it have on your MPGs? How about getting in and out of the truck and/or bed...a PITA? ETC....
I will also be installing a 4" turbo back exhaust, air kit, and am considering an SCT S3/4 or Livewire. My dealership is strongly recommending a Bulletproof EGR cooler and new oil cooler. I'm only looking for a better running and more fuel efficient truck where my mail focus is reliability since this is probably my last truck.
Your feedback and/or recommendations are appreciated. I posted this in the 6.0 Exterior forum, but it's probably better suited here.
