The F150 coils I believe are 2 inch coils for a mid 90's truck. They actually netted 7 inches of lift with just a stock isolator. Stiff too. They are very close in diameter and fit. I am going with 4 inch Rockkrawler coils (they are only 20 min from my house, and very nice people) in the front and swapping the stock front coils to the rear and call it a day. I'll keep the F150 coils when I can get a longarm lift.

A little up front. But I think if I trim the lower rearward edge of my ARB bumper like Hunter did, I'd probably clear just fine.

Hey, I like my stuff to look good, both on & off road. You've seen my other vehicles, haven't you, LOL?

Front and rear extended sway bar links for sway bars!!!!! Upper shock loop adapters for the front. Rear spring post extenders to keep the springs from spitting out when flexed. Extended bump stops, 4.56s for gears....mainly RE hardware.
