Turbs
It's perfectly logical, make it higher so everything goes up.

I could see how it works. The rear bump stops are further away from the axle. Takes more weight to make them bottom out.

It's underlined. Maybe you need to go back and read it again. Who do you think is saying it? You don't have to like it, but to simply pretend it doesn't say what it clearly says is quite...

Go down all the way to the bottom and see what Ford says about things you add on to the truck.

I have read the page a few times and I don't see anything underlined but I am a little old and I don't see too good.

It is underlined in my screenshot. If you are going to the link, you won't see it underlined in the actual article. I know of the legal disclaimer at the bottom. I also know that any time I get a cup of coffee it will have a legal disclaimer on it- so I don't give them much consideration. Doesn't change the fact that the article plainly states that he added a 2" lift kit for an additional 5K towing capacity. And this is a Ford Motor Company publication, not just some random magazine article.

That still does not change what Ford says
