    looks good. Hows the ride compared to stock on and off road?

    I just realized your truck is same color and everything as mine. I like the looks of it thats for sure.

    Rides night and day. Especially the chewed up roads. You know your on a bad stretch, but you don't get the kidney busters. Expansion joints are a non issue except the really gnarly ones you can still feel, but Sage will be tweaking my valving for more compression to take care off that the next time I'm down in SoCal. The problem is the Ford frame flexes more than the Dodges (C-channel compared to a boxed tubed supports) and being a Crew Cab exaggerates it.

    Have not had a chance to take it off road hard, but I feel w/ riding in it for a week know w/ the 2.5" Kings that it will be similiar to my Dodge CTD Carli 2.5 System w/ full leafs (it kicked a**).. Getting the full leafs will be more bueno and better for off road than the mini leafs I have. Also running 37" tires rides smoother over a 35" tire. Next time I will have 37" tires.

    If your in the area of Carli shop. They can have you ride in a Carli Ford set up to get a feel. Just give them a call.

    I dont want the maintenance and to have to change out the towers. Have you tried letting some nitrogen out of your shocks? I remember you saying somethign about it being stiff. I did it when i ran dual foxes and it helped, but i ended up only running singles at half the psi. Just an idea.

    One big thing about running duals is ordering them from someone who actually does the valving. Even when you order shocks straight from Fox, you never really know if you're getting the valving for singles or duals. If you are running single shock valving with dual shocks it will ride stiff. When I bought my new duals for up front, the first thing they did was revalve the front shocks for the dual setup. Truck rides perfect up front.

    Very true. Mine where straight out of the box. Never got the chance to revalve them so just sold them and the hoops.
