Looks like you've got it sitting real nice. Mine sits 1" higher in the front than the back. I'm planning to put some 350 blocks in. I'm getting a pair off of a F350CC, but I'm not sure if there is a difference between the blocks for the CC and the Reg Cab.
No difference in the blocks, a set of 350 blocks are the same in all cab configurations.

That's 4 inches? My 99 F250 SD Lariat V10 sits that high now with a 2inch leveling kit on it. Looks like I'm sending the 4 inch kit back and going 6...

What I did was installed the LEDs on plexiglass that I painted then I bolted the plexiglass to the lip on the lower body. I soldered and used heat shrink tubing for all the solder joints then spliced it to the parking lights.

I was thinking about buying a Buckstop Outback front bumper to replace my stock bumper and brush guard. Does anyone have a Buckstop on their truck?

Ya I hear you....I never thought that I would have this much trouble buying tires for this truck...
Im looking at Nitto Trail Grapplers, BFG's A/T KO, and now Cooper Discoverer STT & Discoverer S/T Maxx.
Heres the trouble Im having I was going to buy new 17 or18" XD Revolver wheels in black for it but worried about the whole hub-centric thing.
Right now I have 17" wheels on it I was going to just paint them flat black but then I cant get bigger tires for it their 7.5" wide.
Thanks ~Gage~

Never heard of that, what is the "hub-centric" thing? I have XD Cranks so hopefully I don't have some problem that I am not aware of.

Well I went to a few tire dealers that wont install any bigger due to wear issues and safety.
This is the biggest tire that I can install on my OEM 17"X7.5"wheels
From Nitto web site...Trail Grappler LT285/75R17E and their 34.09" 11.57" Wide

As long as you install and torque them properly, there are no problems with lug centric wheels. Just look at all the people running them, everywhere. If it was that big of a problem, they wouldnt be sold for our trucks. My friend has had procomps on his truck since 2002 and it tows heavily and hauls heavily, and not a single problem. Id recommend 17s or 18s and some 35s. Cooper STT is a very nice tire
