If you like the look of a lifted truck and this is not primarily a tow rig, do it. Mine is lifted 6" on 35s and tows great. I also flipped the axles on my trailer. The standard Equal-i-zer shank...

2400 at 70
This set up was chosen for towing at 65 MPH @ 2200 on 35" (actual 35.4") tires. I feel like I could move up to 37" at some point without too much of a performance penalty.

I have only put about 500 miles on since I went from a 2 1/2" leveling kit to a 6" suspension lift but I am running the same tires. There appears to be no real difference in MPGs with the two setups....

I am getting a re-manufactured transmission. I was told that everything but the shell is brand new. I believe it also comes with a new cooler. Ford backs it with a three year, unlimited mileage...

I had it flushed at a Ford dealer about 10,000 miles ago. The 2005-2007s have an external filter. I changed it out at the same time as the flush. I am still shocked that I am in this position. I...
