Oh yea and just thought I'd add this tidbit for the u-joints. If you have a 42RLE it's a 3.5 in joint if you have the 45RFE like me its a 3 7/8 in joint. Found this out the hard way.

It's 58649 they raised my rear end up by an inch but your mileage may vary

Well ladies and gents after careful consideration of how bad the rot on the underside of my jeep is progressing I decided it was time to move on before it became unsafe and compromised the integrity of the unibody. I got $2k on a trade in towards this beautiful F150 at my dealer that I work at.

I'm obviously gonna stick around with you guys since you're all a good bunch. Now time to turn the page into the next chapter of life and vehicle ownership. I'll miss the memories I've made in the Jeep and will never forget them.

Toothpaste, use a good rag and keep polishing it

Well I figured I'd post some pics of the new rig and where it's at right now.

Here it is in Kentucky on a hunting trip. Performed awesome with a completely full bed and cab and got around 18mpg on the 750 mile one way trip.
Image
Our view from the cabin we were at
Image

Took it offroading a couple weeks ago and it was awesome with the rear elocker. Can't do hills though seeing as how the wheelbase is too long, framed out on just a little one[emoji19] made me miss the jeep a little bit.

Also put on a tonneau cover so I can have somewhat lockable storage and also so no one can see what's in the bed
Image

Also took off the front air dam, undercarriage sound deadener, and silencer rings in the intake so I can hear my turbos more as well

Very good photos, man!
I have also recently purchased a tonneau cover by Extang.
Honestly, how did I ever do without this thing. Looks cool, Practical, strong and attractive.
I always have people asking about it which gives me an opportunity to show how simple it is.

Main reason why I got it was so I can haul things and no one knows what's in there I love it.

Also once the quad has been paid off this spring will be building the truck into an overland type vehicle. First going to get full skids. Then next is upgraded headlights. Then new front coilovers in the front with an add a leaf and new shocks in the rear. That'll net me about 2.5" of lift and then I'll go with some 33s. Basically going to then it into something like this

Congrats on the f150. I've got a 2014 ecoboost and it's a beast. Towed my 24' 5500 lb travel trailer in 30-40 mph winds this weekend like it wasn't even there.

I did bilstein 5100's all around which are nice but won't be as awesome as a full replacement coilover. The rears only support 1" of lift but the fronts will level up to 2.25 I believe. I have been running 33" duratracs since before the bilsteins and I know a few people on 34" with stock suspension, but I don't believe the newer trucks(2015+) have quite as much room.

Mine is longer than yours though, supercrew with a 6.5' bed, so I really don't take it off-road. I got the bilsteins mostly for hauling and trailering performance but they are much better on the couple of trails I have been on. The factory shocks on the f150 are horrific so almost anything is an improvement.

yea I've noticed my bed likes to bounce around alot but it seems more planted with a load in there obviously. Could still use a little more control back there though. I don't really plan on lifting the rear much.
