Question:
How did you fix the speedometer issue with larger tires? I took my truck to the ford dealership today and he said they could not help me. I needed to get a ford tuner? Not sure if my warranty will be voided for messing with the timing.

You need a 3rd party tuner to correct the tire size, these are fairly easy to find and will not void your warranty.

I used my edge evolution programmer... but you if you don't want to program your vehicle there are other options. you can use Forscan. it allows you to change a lot of parameters with your vehicle...

Nice looking truck! Glad to see a few F-150's out there. I know they aren't common overland vehicles but still capable.

What level did you go with? Those Nitto's are on my list to replace the stock slick worthless Wranglers. Looking to go 33" with as small of a lift as I can swing and gain clearance. In the Seattle area I have to be able to park downtown in some very tight garages so height is an issue.

Looking forward to following what you have next!

Sorry just swa this! My level is a 2" supreme suspension kit, the stock tires are the f150 are worthless I agree! Love the Nittos so far, these are a hair over 34" I believe.

Here's a new question to all the F150 guys - what gears are you running? I'm planning to move down from my stock 3.31's, especially now that I'm pushing 35" tires. Debating between 4.10's and 4.56's. Thoughts?

Name of dealer? Please.

They should not sell or service any Ford product. Even amateurs with Forscan can program that. Professionals with factory equipment should have no problems at all. This is why we can't get quality service. Piss poor quality techs due to complete lack of decent pay and training.
