Truck looks good!

It's too bad you guys out there on the left coast like that pre-runner look. We out here on the right prefer a nice level rig.

Regardless, I'm diggin the black on black. Looks sharp!

Ah, you're from Cali, that explains a lot, no disrespect intended. I lived there when I was much younger, and have been back to visit a few times, and I have noticed a lot of lifted 2wd where the front was higher than the rear. But yes, the picture with the boat was definitely squatting big time. The big block weighing it down makes sense though.

It doesn't squat that bad with my toy hauler though.
Ah yes what do they call that the Cali Sag or something like that.

what i dont understand is the front being higher than the rear because all that changes how it handles and weight transfer. front down to far and oversteer, front to high and understeer and it wont turn as good as it should when you need to avoid something or when you push the trucks ability, but i guess its all in what you like. mine is level now but i think im going to go with a 1in rear block to help with some foward rake.

It also depends on conditions, east coasters tend to like the trucks level for trails and mud, west coasters like the front higher for high speed offroading, the front end has more travel and absorbs the heavy shocks..

Personally, the distance between my tires and fenders is a half in higher in the back because I go mudding and was going for the big intimidating truck look instead of the prerunner look
(Although if I had the dough I would cage my truck and get widebody fenders like this)

That first picture is a pretty cool looking truck he has some good times in but there is something off about it that I am having a hard time putting my finger on. The bed of the truck doesn't look quite right for a F150. Maybe its just me and because of the work he did every where else.

It looks like he pulled the bedsides on the rear instead of ordering a fiberglass kit. It is a common cheap way to get the tire clearance that you need. That is why the bed rail caps do not match up to the bedsides.

It also looks like he dovetailed just behind the rear tire (made a diagonal cut from behind the rear tire up to the tube bumper that he must have built) That would be my guess.
