Your truck looks great. I went back and forth between white and my race red when I ordered mine. You should Line-X your rear wheel wells. That was my first mod. Ford had done a super light coating of red in the wheel wells which made it look PINK!

No way, pink! Thanks Ford Lol. And ya, that's a great idea, it would look nice black for sure.

Haha, funny man - go for it! It towed the toy hauler fine, plenty of power. You're not going to beat an F-350 up a grade or anything, but I had a Tundra with the 5.7L V8, and this thing has WAY more power, even with the 37's. My hauler is 6,500 dry, and when I tow it is 10,000 loaded with the SXS, fuel and water. I used a Centerline TS Weight Distribution hitch which works wonders! You need that if you don't have something similar already... Also, I just installed the 3/4" rear spacer from Foutz Motorsports. I have the 2.25" RPG collar in the front, and it sits PERFECT now with this spacer in the rear. It even drives/feels better with the ass end up, I was really surprised what a difference!

The MPG is not so great, I was about 6.5 MPG average. But I'm at like 8.4 MPG around town, these tires must just kill the MPG, because I've seen others saying there in the 15's plus - not here! Lol I'm 120 lbs at each corner with this setup, not sure what stock is. And I'm constantly on the gas.
Break in is a little different for everyone but I was seeing 2-3mpg less on the first 3-5k on my last 3 trucks. It got to 16-17 after that. And I’m at 111,000 on my Gen 2 and was getting 18 coming home from out of town this evening. My last truck I went up 2 tire sizes and lost 1.5mpg but then I corrected the Speedo and it was only 0.5. So the question is have you calibrated for the larger tires? ( if you are going off the computer) hand calculate next time.

Oh ya! I’ve got to figure out how to recalibrate my speedometer. That will help, and I like how the mileage got better with use. Fingers crossed Lol! You know how I can recalibrate???

If you buy a tuner or get it tuned it can be corrected. ForScan can do it now. A lot easier than the old days when you had to change the gear on the speedometer cable.

Looks great! I assume a 37 package would only need the 1.5 collars rather than the 2.25 to look level like this?

I thought the 37" package cleared the larger tires due to the limiting of the up travel ford built into the suspension on those models. I do not think the 37" is any higher in the front then the 35" package, the tires just move upward an inch less.

Ford says shock diameter is bigger but truly only difference
