You might have to have 25 posts to post pics, I'm not positive though. I have the same color in a SCrew with 2" LK and the same Nittos I'm assuming yours is 09 or 10 as they don't have Royal Red after '10?

Augster is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I had stock 20" wheels when I installed a 2" net lift all around (HBS up front and ReadLift block out back) and after getting it aligned, there was no noticeable change in general handling characteristics. The center of gravity is certainly changed and there should be more lean on corners, however, since 4x4 F-150's are not really suited for hard cornering to begin with, you typically won't notice it much on turns unless you are trying to keep up with a speeding sports car.

I installed aftermarket 20" rims with 33" Nitto Terra LT's afterwards and those stout tires alone stiffened the ride appreciably, both straight-line and turning.

I have a 2" Autospring level (front only) with 34" Trail Grapplers. The leveling kit didn't make any noticeable difference in the ride but the load range-E mud terrains did. But it still rides great.
