Nah. Just the same truck my buddy has had that we use for the business. Itís my shop beater while heís overseas. I just renewed my registration on the 150, not getting a new truck until I can afford a new limited super duty off the lot.

Hell of a shop beater.

One of my customers just got a new limited 250 with the powerstroke. Rode in it to lunch a couple Fridays ago. I was shocked on how bad of a ride it was. I'm sure it's great with a lot of weight behind it (he has a large travel trailer that he tows), but it was a brutal ride just by itself.

Now my neighbor's 2018 F150 with the diesel, that was a sweet ride on the road.

Front rides good. This kit uses factory struts and shocks (rancho). They don't handle the heavier tires better than the factory tires. I have the fox on the back and I feel like they didn't redesign them for the lighter truck bed that is on the 19s vs 14-18s. I had the same lift on my 14 silverado with the BDS struts and fox rear and it was better than factory. Don't get me wrong it rides pretty good for a 6in lifted truck with 35s. Handles big bumps/swells great but its the small road imperfections that get the rear. you feel them all. I am going to try throwing 100lbs of my led ballast weights in the back and see if that helps.

Also whatís the psi in those ridge grapplers? I air my down to 50 when not towing heavy. It makes a huge difference. I bet 35 psi would be even better.

This truck has load range F 35x13.5x22s on it. Itís not a caddy, but itís also pulled the 30 half way across the country and it was more comfy than my 150. For sure.

For the amount of weight we were moving in it yesterday, it was crazy how smooth it was.
