Wifes F150 w/pics

I installed the coil spacers and cat back exhaust I bought for the wife's truck a couple days after Christmas. The leveling kit made a big difference, it looks so much better now and she was so happy with her gifts

before the spacers


after the 2" spacer/leveling kit


Dynomax 2 1/2" with 3" polished SS tips. It has a nice mellow tone hopefully it will help with fuel mileage if she can keep her foot out of it




I still have to figure out what tires to put on it now. I want a 33"-34" tire but I need a tire that will last and not be loud as hell. She drives pavement a lot but want decent traction in the snow .. thinking maybe BFG AT's

bfg at's is what i've ran for 20 years. never been dissatisfied. They don't last quite a s long as some of the others but are quite and good traction, even in the rain.

Take a look at the Kuhmo KL78's not loud on pavement at all. And you should get 50k miles out of them with proper rotation

I just bought some Dunlop Rover Maxx Traction MT's. I haven't had them in the mud yet, but they do great on wet pavement and are supposed to be good in snow. I haven't had them but for 500 mile so I can't sat about wear, they don't seem much louder than the factory BFG Longtrail tires I pulled off, well a little but I like a little noise.

right now it has the stock rugged trail bfg's and besides them looking too small now that its leveled, I hate them and don't recommend them to anyone

I honestly am not a fan of the BFG ATs. I ran them on a f150 and I just wasn't impressed with the performance or tread wear.

I had a set of BFG A/T KO on a Ranger I used to have, I couldn't wear them out. They were like energizer rabbit kept going and going and going...... was on the truck when I sold it.

Truck looks great... check into the nitto terra grappler. Comes in some good sizes and a wider one looks nice on stock rims.

I second the Nitto terra grapplers.

I used the DC F/C II on my 250, hated them. They were a nice on road tire, but they were terrible in every kind of offroad environment I put them through (OK in snow, but still not great). They did last a while and were quiet and nice riding on the road though.

The biggest improvement we've made on all of our 04+ 5.4 3v F150's was an intake. I've never had an intake make an improvement on any other vehicle, but the 5.4 with an intake and exhaust made a world of difference. We only used Roush intakes and Gibson cat-backs on my dad's 5.4's. He netted 20mpg on two seperate occasions going from NY to WV and once from NY to IL

He did appx 70mph both trips, but he does accelerate and decelerate slow.
