truck looks awsome. quick queston. how well does the airaid jr work? it looks like just the stock intake tube in replaced and you still use the same filter housing and stock filter. i was thinking about trying it out but didnt know anybody who has had one.

Truck looks great!!!

Do you think they would rub if you did not have mud flaps? And do you think you are going to have trouble with them rubbing even worse when you off-road?

I am trying to decide if I should do 33s or 35s when I get new tires at the end of the summer.

well thanks guys ...my air intake has been great works well made a little differents all around but when i got and exhaust is when it really picked up ....and about my mud flaps thay rub just a little at full lock and i really haven't try yet off road or at hard angle yet ...but i did have to make a bracket to hold the wheel liner back so it didn't rub to... i went with 35 over 33 beacuse in the 18inch tires their the same price pretty much

Which leveling kit on Ebay did you buy? I'm trading my '04 F250 on a '04 F150 on Monday and was just looking at leveling kits. I get nervous about buying cheap stuff on ebay.

HEy Silver05FX4,
Thanks for the off road update.

By the way I noticed on your signature that you say the tires are 305/65/18 but in the picture on your gallery they are 305/70/18...just thought I would let you know.

That combo of levelling kit and tires looks awesome on your truck. Nice job on those brackets too.
