Yeah, we put a lot of miles on this thing hauling 5 kids around to all their activities, traveling back and forth between TX/AR and I've been driving it to work a lot of the time since I did the swap. Had to buy a commuter car recently to cut the fuel bill down...

I noticed you switched out her hot rod in your signature.

Our kids have kids now so their doing most of the running now.
My F-450 stays hooked to a trailer doing farm work most of the time and as only seen 14,000 miles in 24 months.

Still have the Z71 but it's getting a lot of rust in the body, pulled the supercharger off in January, it's now her farm work truck.
Body shops wanted $8-10K to repair the rust and repaint the truck so we decided to upgrade.
Got a good deal on a 2018 F-150 STX lease return with 15K miles.
Because we've had so much rain and bad weather it stays in the shed most of the time, we've only put 1200 miles on it since January 5th, 600 miles was driving it home from NC.
Want to keep it looking good for a while.

Thanks! I've put some weather tech mats in, going to take the blocks out from under the springs to lower the rear a little, then add a Dual Line bed liner and maybe rear wheel well liners.
Want to keep it low for her and do a couple things to protect the paint and body, otherwise just enjoy the truck.
Few more years to get the poultry buildings paid for and we might come cruising your way.

So any ideas as to what size tires will fit with just the spring swap? I am getting ready to start this project, I have a rolled 2008 F250 as my donor.

I have 34" tires on my X. 35" tires are an easy fit, and I think 37" are possible. I don't have any 37s to try, nor have I measured.
