    Here are a few pics of my 11 Ford. I installed bigger rear blocks, Firestone Ride Rites, 2" leveling kit, Bilstein 5100 shocks, and 35x12.5 Toyo MTs.

    It turned out sweet. I also want to tell everyone never to buy Rancho shocks again. My truck came with Rancho with the FX4 package and there was nothing left of them when I took them off. It took 15 minutes for them to open after being compressed. I noticed they had the word "Motorcraft" stamped into them. Hmm, shame on Ford and/or Rancho.

    I also put air bags on my 09 Ford. I took the Timbrens off and I have them for sale in the marketplace.

    That front axle is a monster. Kinda scary dropping it down. Had to unbolt brake lines and ABS sensors.

    Looks good! Been thinking about putting the Blisten's on my truck. Hows the ride?

    Honestly, they are way better than stock. If I was to only do one thing to my truck, that would be it. The Toyo MTs made the ride rougher, but the shocks made up for it.

    Krayzkajun, you hopped off the ford bandwagon too soon. The 2011's are pretty slick. I've have mine 15 months now with no problems.
