Very nice. I'm sure you're going to love the way it tows compared to the F-150. Keep us informed after your first time out with it.

Will let you know how it tows...first order of business is lowering the rear a bit to fit the F250 in the garage. If I put 1K+ lbs in the bed it just 'squeaks' in, so I am going to change the rear shackles to lower the rear 1 inch.

I park mine at home under a carport. I haven't been able to get anything in my garage in years. I can't drive the truck to work because it's too tall. Unless I park on the street (Yeah...south Houston..ain't gonna happen). So I drive the "beater" car to work (a '15 Dodge Charger). Good thing my wife doesn't work.

I don't want to lower mine any because after I set the 5th wheel on it, it sits perfectly level. I have the camper package on mine, which adds an extra spring, so it sits pretty high. But the 5er levels it out perfect. And it drives perfect. I am impressed!

Anyway, have fun, and keep us updated!
