I dont have many miles on it yet because I dont drive it that often(drive a cargo van for work). I also wont drive it in the winter. The por15 is holding up great. No chips or anything yet. Its funny cause I painted a trailer with the left over paint and the trailer is completely faded cause of the uv rays but under the truck where the sun dont shine looks good still. I think someday maybe I should put a coat of black paint over the por15 but it still looks good! Still shiney. I can post pictures soon.
rangermike, Great looking truck! I hope you don't mind a few questions...
How much of a lift kit was this?
Does the kit provide a way to lower the pivot points at the fixed ends of the twin traction beams?
Do you have to modify the driveshaft?
Did I read correctly that you didn't have to lengthen the brake lines?
You have the 315/75/16 tires on the factory Alcoa rims?
Ask away! Its a 4" Rough Country kit. Ford Suspension Lift Kit They didnt charge me shipping when I called them direct to order it. $610 for the lift with everything you need to do the install. It comes with drop brackets for the TTB and the brackets they give you are actually really beefy and well made. I did not have to do anything to my driveshafts or my brake lines. All still stock. Yes...315/75/16 tires on stock Alcoa rims. I love the Alcoa rims! Any other questions feel free to ask. Thanks for the comments, Mike
Mine won't ever look that good, unless someone offers me an insane amount of money for it and fixes it up themselves. Mine is just an old farm truck and weekend wheeler. Mine has a 4.9 in it, which I absolutely fell in love with for the farm work. Hard to complain about something that can pull out stuck stalk-trucks with 192k miles on it..

very nicely done!
i love the por-15.anyone who wants to keep a vehicle for years to come needs this stuff.
i thought it was pricey until i tried it.it's so good,and you need so little of it,and it should hold up so long (as long as you follow the steps) that its actually cheaper than scrapping/sanding repainting with normal paint by FAR!
