I have another friend who is getting the RS9000 with the new 9 way switch. His 9000s with the 5 way are only 5000 miles old and he is going to give them to me because his new ones are free. Wardly, that is a nice set up, I plan on going with bigger tires and rims which will help but it will be some time before I go bigger. I drive this daily and still need to park it in the garage (or Car Hole as Moe calls it). The best part is looking down on Chevys. Thanks Checkmate, lets see a pic There is no doubt this truck needed this, they all do and would ride much better if they were. Ford really blew it with the suspension, no sway bar in the rear....what a joke, you can buy a new one from Ford for $68.00 and a 30mm from Helwig for $130. Shocks and sway bar next.

Mitch, Just kidding. I think it looks great. Mine is a daily driver also with about 100 miles daily. Dave

Mitch,
I did about the same to mine. I put some 18" wheels on it. I also had a little vibration at highway speeds but not bad at all. I sold the vehicle b/c I work at my family's Ford dealership but plan on building another one. Let me know when you are ready to trade.

Well now I can see what my truck would look like with 18s. Looks good.

The 18s look sharp. I pulled the running boards off. It makes it look a little higher, Ive never cared much for running boards
