I've posted a few pics in a 6.0L discussion, but everyone may not of seen it.. So I will tell the whole story.

I am 19 years old right now, almost 20. When I was a senior in high school, I bought a 1999 Ford F-350 Lariat V-10. Put an 8in. Suspension and 38 Baja Claws on in.



After Graduation, I put another 5in lift on the truck, and kept the 38s



When the 38s started to get bald, I looked into getting new tires for it, and I could get 46s for 100 bucks more than I could get new 38s for, so another 3in of lift and 46s got put on the truck..




Well, Ever since I bought my V-10 Ive wanted a Diesel, so April 1st I picked up my new truck and swapped the lift..

heres my new truck stock.. 2004 Ford F-350 XLT 6.0L Diesel



And how shes sitting now..





















AND THE OLD TRUCK~FOR SALE~




HOPE YOU ALL LIKE THE PICS~:icon_ford:

I have no idea.. I havent plated the diesel yet, waiting to sell the V-10, the V-10 was getting like 6-8mpg with the 46's.

My dad has a 7.3L and on highway gets 16mpg with 24in of lift and 49s.

How the hell does that truck turn?

YOU TURN THE STEERING WHEEL.. :rofl:

My truck tires rub on sharp turns but only on the leaf springs cause tires are so wide, under regular driving I doesnt rub only sharp corner:tard:

Steering- Drop Pitman arm from SKYJACKER

I need Cross Over Steering, gonna buy it when i sell old truck from OFFROAD UNLIMITED

8in Skyjacker was the most expensive, not sure the cost
5in shackles, were 450 bucks
3in body was 370 bucks

wheels 152 a piece
