    In 2013 Ford strengthened the frame.

    Any more details on this? I’ve decided that the SVC adjustable bump stop kit is a great idea for my truck, does this equal/exceed the frame upgrade? Any other steps to beefing up the frame? Thanks!

    Read the article...So I have the later beefed up frame (2014)...been looking at the frame upgrades from ADD. Would it still be a good addition or just redundant frame support? My way of thinking is cost/ benefit and not just a gimmick, and if necessary for my use. I’m looking at trail/sport overland travels and remote camping/hunting. Not really a fast speed baja/whoops/jumper guy. I don’t live near a desert.:hunter:

    Probably a waste of money if you don't see whoops or jumps. But the protection might be worth it for that one time you're caught without it
