How’d you do it? I’ve got a 3” but it’s more like 2.5 because of my brushguard/winch.

It was originally the readylift 2.5. I added a skyjacker bottom mount coil spacer and readylift radius arm drop brackets.

Have a new list of things I've done recently,

-Detailed this weekend using wolfgang products, came out really good! Pics suck though, what a chore.
-Installed all new LED lights from retro solutions for the exterior, very impressed so far!
-Installed 26" curved light bar that 6.0 Stroker Recommended off Amazon to upfitter switch.
-Checked water in all of my fuel filter bowls "3 with diesel site" NO water but small bits of debris.
-3/4" Bumper Spacer From KD FAB

Last Couple months,
-Full Delete, 5" Flo Pro exhaust with Muffler @30k
-Ezlynk with PPEI Tunes SOTF (30-180hp)
-AFE Cold Air Intake
-Gator Trax bed cover
-Diesel Site Fuel filters
-3.5" Lift with Air Lift Bags in the rear
-20x9" Fuel Mavericks w/37" Toyo Rt's
-H&S Black Intercooler pipe with Throttle body removed
-All New coolant
For the airbags with the 3.5" lift, what did you use? I have the firestone bags but had to remove them with that lift.
Did you stick with your stock shocks? I was thinking of going with the fox but I wasn't sure it was worth the money. Awesome work and nice looking truck-- You are putting some $$$$$ in that beast!

Added some low cost ($8) flexible strip self adhesive LEDs under the cab for puddle lights. Plugs in to the existing factory connector (use a Metra 72-5600 - $6 pair). Easy as pie. Puts out enough light to see the ground/ running boards.

I got them on mine and I like them. Can feel the difference, not so much now since got used to them but for first days could really tell, softened up the harshness of some the bumps I went over, expansion joints, etc...

Took off factor steps and added these ICI MAGNUM RT STEPS

I think they look good, install was easy.

Air bag install

Finally got the load lifter bag install done this last Sunday. People were saying 3-4 hours well it took me and a buddy more like 6 or so. (Including putting in the compressor and running the lines and checking for leaks and going to Ace for line connector)!!! I don't feel like we are completely incompetent at doing things either. The biggest thing that would've helped would've been a lift for sure. We are going camping this weekend so I am hoping to get a feel for it. Plan on bringing it back and checking all bolts and nuts after that. FYI there is no great place to install the compressor that we found that wouldn't be in the way. It went inside the spare tire frame. Hence the trip to Ace for the connector. LOL

Not a great place? Maybe you don't have a 4 door where I doo but there is gobs of space under the trucks. Here are two 444c compressors on the frame and an 8 gallon tank.

I wanted to keep things up high and inside the frame rails. I went on the cheaper side and got the wired compressor and getting it to mount without fabricating since we were at work and I had tore apart in the fire bays and had 8 hours to get done. Maybe not the best solution but it is what we came up with lol.

I like them. They did take some of the harshness of the craptastic Michigan roads away. It doesn't provide a super huge difference but it makes the same exact bump I've been hitting for the last 3 years on the way to work go from a sharp hit to more if a thud. I'd say overall maybe a 25% improvement

I went through the same thing installing my Airlift 5000 kit, took me about 6 hours by myself in the driveway without installing the onboard compressor. I decided instead to run a mini portable compressor & adjust once the camper is hooked up to level. I've been running 5 psi in my bags around town even though I have the new kit with the internal jounce bumpers, the truck rides great. We're camping this weekend so it will by my first trip with the new bags & only second trip with this truck since I bought it last year. Long trip of 3.5 hours each way so it will be a good test to see if I'd prefer having onboard air or not.

Bought a second 6.7, 2011 F-450 box truck. It has 280,000km or 173,000 mi. I picked it up for 17,000$ Can or $13,000 USD. Just waiting for the dealer to safety it. So far it needed a windshield and two front tires. The International dealer is going to remove and clean the EGR cooler and DPF. They do it for the bigger trucks due to the Maxxforce Engines.

Went and measured the box and started building shelves since it was pouring rain all day.
