2002 F-150

hey guys,
My Brother has a 02 F-150 flareside. 4.6L that he wants to do up when he gets back from working over yander.

How ever he knows nothing about Modifying vehicles. I know nothing about modifying trucks.

I tried to convince him to just get a lightning, but said this truck is paid for.


His main priority is Suspension.
What choices are out there. He is looking more for performance(handling)

He also wanted some extra power, but did not want to sacrifice fuel mileage.

Lastly for now, he was looking for some new rims. Like the ones pictured, but do not make them anymore as far as i can tell.
What are most people running on F-150's for rim size?


Thanks!

for rims it depends.
If your with the times, then 20's min 22's Tops, will look great on there. If your old then you would probably wants 16's

And for power you can spend lots.
Most will stick with the cat back, intake, tuner but thats like 20hp Tops maybe and over 1g$



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.
