    Big fan after 10k miles, which includes 2500 miles towing the race trailer. All aspects are great.....normal driving seems as good or better.

    Doesn't even look like you needed the blue ox from the picture attached other than to be legal for over 6k. Awesome.

    Are you still satisfied with your Roadmaster setup. If the truck has been taken off road, any issues?

    I was really pleased with the set on my '19. I only put about 1,000 miles on them before switching to IVD leaf springs. So, if your contemplating buying a set, I have a slightly used set coming up for sale.

    Still like the Roadmaster? Have you done and off roading with them? Found any negatives? I'm seriously thinking about adding them to my 19 screw. Hard to believe you can improve towing and ALSO not affect or actually improve driving when empty. I'm always cautious when it seems to good to be true...LOL

    I had the RAS installed on my 2011 F150 SCrew for 6 years and 45k miles and was really happy with it. I had raised the front 1.5” and did not want the rear lower than the front especially after I installed a camper shell. The RAS helped with wheel hop/axle wrap and the sagging stock leafs. It lifted the rear about an 1” over stock but that is dependent on how much tension you set on the springs. It definitely stiffened/firmed up the ride but nothing that could be considered harsh.

    I removed the RAS before selling my truck and will most likely be installing it on my ‘20 Raptor SCrew. I am waiting to get my new camper shell installed and see how much the rear end settles.

    read my post, I'm selling my set since I installed Icon leafs. I don't mind shipping. I didnt off-road with my set, not sure how that would work.

    Thank you but I'm hoping to get a response to my questions. I'm still undecided. Can't get over the potential for the thing to slip off when extreme off roading. I know another poster said it happened to him but he had deavers and thought it should be ok with stock. The design makes it seem possible to slip off if your getting wild off road although I don't have any evidence or posts proving it other than the guy who had aftermarket springs. I will hit you up if I get to a decision point. What are you asking btw?

    I had the same question when I was looking at it, never had a problem but then again I don't know how I'd feel about taking it to Durhamtown with them on. Maybe call roadmaster direct and ask.
    for mine, I'd take $300 shipped
