lift is not a good mod unless you really use it off road. takes away mileage, makes things harder to load/unload, the off road shocks usually arent that good for road and towing, puts stress on all the drivetrain parts etc...

Agreed here. My brother has finally realized this after 3 years of having his F250 (mild lift kit). He just sold it and is now looking for a stock ride height F350 or F450

im more intrested in playing with it. no sense in using it as a dd when i have a 25mpg car sitting in the drive already. honestly ill probably just cheap out and get leveling blocks or something, but i would like to do what sarah is gonna do someday. lots of trails around here and the dunes to play in.

its alot easier if you do want to go off road to get something easy to fix like a old jeep. but even those are expensive after a while. thats why i sol my jeep and got quads they hold up a million times better and not having my truck in the mud works out a ton better for not replacing everything below the mud line all the time

I'm doing it because I've wanted this since I was a little kid. May not be your cup of tea but I've worked for it for a while and am excited to finally get it. I'm on many truck forums and most of my friends have them so I know exactly what I'm getting into.
