Heres some pics of my 2004 F-350 lariat long box,
When I ordered truck i ordered it with stainless rocker panels, under coating, wooden box liner, window drip rails , hood Vailance,as well had them put in the High idle set up lol.
I told them to take of the steering stablizer off i didn't want that. Also ordered it with the life time no rust guarntee thingy hahaha. My truck body and frame is electricly charged suppose to work i can sorta see it in Theory But most importantly i ordered it with the Donohoe racing 6" lift it came with 37" pro-comp tires,6 bilestien shocks. So literally I spent 10G on top of price for Mods before i even seen the truck hahahaa.
So i drove it and got the stares looked wicked, no problems with it i was Happy. till i started seeing Dodges, and Chevs that were lifted taller. lmao
I wasn't going to let that happen,So i talked to a RCMP friend and asked about the laws on lifted trucks etc.then i started searching the net and started planning my next lift which was to go Big lol So heres some pics oftruck total lift 28" I used 8" deaver springs, Dr crossover steering, track bar, steerin pitman arm, dual shock front mounts,and high steer knuckle. 8 donohoe signature series res shocks 20x12 weld cheyennes, 49" Iroks, 3.5" steel wheel spacers, clocking ring for Transfer case. price tag 15G if not more I had to build my own
shackles front and back, and get driveshafts lengthened re design tranny bar as drive shaft from stock goes above, and had to make new steady bearing mount. here yea go

So i drove this for around 2 years like that went through 2 sets of 49" iroks, screwed the 1st set with those balancing beads.The beads took out the rubber balancing bladder Interco puts in cause theres a lot of rubber there. I finally found a balancing machine that could do them.I re balanced every 5000 km.
I had full factory Warranty on this truck at that height, People couldn't believe it hahahaha. anyways the truck drove wicked a little gutless out of hole but could cruise 110 on highway no problem and straight.As for parking lol i needed room. So with 37,000 km on truck i noticed some Vibrations in the front end i thought WTF so in she went to dealer my hole front end was shot, Who would think that being i had approx 250 pounds of rim,spacers, and tire.hahahaaha on each corner kinda stressed You think :) So they replaced hubs an all.I thought this is not good i need to figure out how to make my truck bullit proof so only way i could do this an run a big tire was to go to dueces of course braking as well was a issue so it was a plus plus, So the planning started I needed rockwells ,a bud of mine in Arizona (Schmaug ) He was like the first to do a rock swap on his duty. So he was a ton of help if i had any questions So i got a hold of some rockwell suppliers and finally got me some front steer axles with 18" disks home of course with Overversion hubs etc.







more to come :)

So once i started to take out axle i needed to get going on her took about 20 hrs to do




This is where i had do some serious measurements to do.Man was it hard
moving 800 pound axles myself



Once axle was in place i had to make spring perches




Then welded them on and mount axle


Once on re -measure All good then take apart prep and paint




Then re-mount
