    Nice looking truck. I've got a '10 FX4 and have been looking for things to do. The dark wheels look great.

    The only thing I have towed so far was a boat. I was not real impressed with the power, but I had a diesel before so maybe my expectations were high. The truck handled the load great. I flat towed the bronco with my '89 f150 and my '05 f350. It was a horrible experience with the old half ton and I didn't notice the bronco with the one ton. I expect the 09 to pull a lot like the 05 minus all the torque of course.

    Noticed you have early bronco, I have a 74 and just got a 09 F150 Fx4. Will use it to occasionly flat tow the bronco, have you towed yours yet, flow or trailer? How does it do?

    Wheels-18x9, 5.71" backspacing, +18mm offset. Have yet to do any trimming although there is some minor rubbing on plastic in reverse. I get between
    13 and 17 on a tank. I definitely lost some but I don't follow it too closely.

    I really like the set up on your truck. I have an 09 as well and would like to do the lift, wheel and tire set up like you did. What size rims are you running (backspacing, offset)? Did you have to do any trimming to make the 35's fit? What kind of mileage are you getting with this setup? Any information is helpful. Thanks.

    Well I am not sure. I do not know exactly where the tires are rubbing. So they may rub regardless of 2", 2.5", or 3". What I meant was that if you want your truck to sit level, the 2" may be the best option. Oh and I am pretty sure they are rubbing on plastic, so that could be easily fixed with a knife. Since they only rub in certain situations I am not too concerned.

    you said to go with the 2 inch. if the 2.5 is rubbing a little wouldnt the 2 inch rub all the time lock to lock?

    It is a 2.5" Autospring bought from their ebay store. It was around $90 for the powdercoated version. I would recommend the 2" because my truck sits nose up. I plan on getting an add a leaf or block for the rear to make it level or nose down.
