Throw the auto hub in the trash while you're in there, and install just about any brand of manual lockouts for any semblance of reliability. Auto's are a joke.

Pull that front right hub apart and inspect the wheel bearings. You said it growls when you turn it by hand so start there.

I did a "level" on mine before putting 33x10.5 tires on mine, raised the front 1.75" or so and I spaced the front bumper out 1/2". I wouldn't do it differently, but my truck get's flexed hard off...

I'll start this Saturday or Sunday. Should have it on by Thanksgiving.

I checked out some commercially built sled decks at the local dealership on Friday. They use 1"x2" tube throughout, and its...

So there's a variety of opinions on my design:
1) It'll be fine
2) It'll bend & dent
3) Redesign it.
That indicates to me I must be close to the limit on how light I can reasonably go.

So...

You can pull codes without a reader, just need a paper clip and the ability to watch the flashes of the check engine light. Search for how to do this.

This is the type of critique I was hoping for.

You don't think the headache rack & rear end skirt will help stiffen up the deck? It wouldn't in the center, but I would expect it to at the ends. I...

I agree with the above statements. It'd do the job, but isn't ideal. If you upgrade trailers, you'll be hurting with that F150. Besides that, its over priced and has quite a few miles on it.
