hey fella's, if you didnt know, im new here. i have a 07 4door F150 FX4 flare side. came with the 20 in rim and pirelli scorpion tires. what i wanna do but aint sure on the facts and how to go about doing it is to get a 6 in lift or something like that and some mean big tires. also i herd that if you get tires that are wide you need a fender flare or the cops will pull you over... should i keep the factory 20's adn get a bigger tire or get 17's or 18's and a tire with more rubber for offroading and the roads here in sudbury and garson arnt exactly.. user friendly lol. any tips will be greatly appreciated. thanks again.

P.S. ill be reading as many of your own posts as i can to get new ideas.

Good news, we have an Affiliate who specializes in 6 inch lifts with complete packages. Blackstock is his name on the board.

Bad news, fender flares for the flare side aren't available(at least last time I researched) for the rear.

is it cause the front sits lower then the back so you get teh leveler lift to make the front and back hights even?
That is correct.

I would start with the level lift, it is a fairly cheap mod(make sure you repoint the headlights). As for the tires, I would wait til the current tires are worn out and go with the current size(no second set of rims cuts down on the expense).

Welcome to the site Renault! Nice to see someone a little closer to my end of the map. My trucks in Val Caron at the moment but I'm having it brought to my house today so I don't have to go to Suds to get it when I get home. I've got 35" MTZ's on the way and I'm not putting any fender flairs for now anyways...cops are a little less of hardasses around Elliot but you might have fun in sudbury.

P.S. put your marker on Googlmaps so I'm not all alone up here....
