Thumbs up New To Me Truck

Well after clearing out some vehicles I am picking up an '11 F-350 Extended Cab Short Box Lariat on Tuesday. It has some bumps and bruises, but overall it is pretty clean. I can't wait to get some miles under my belt. I had it over night and in the driving that I did I was very impressed. I am really impressed with the way it performed with the 3.31 gearing.

Well, I have the body work done. I installed some 325/65R18 GoodYear DuraTrcs, and added a 2" BDS Levelling Kit with new shocks all the way around. I love this truck! I think it looks just right.

Not so far. I bought them from the Ford dealer where I got the truck and they had no issues installing them. They rub the radius arms just a slight bit at full lock, but not bad at all. I couldn't pass up their price on the Duratracs plus the $100 Rebate!
