I've got a base manual ordered. Do you think 35" tires will lug it down too bad? I believe it comes with 4.46 gears.
If you got the 2.3 7sp 2door with 4.46 rear gears. Your gonna be good. Especially if it's more of daily driver and gravel, dirt. (My opinion)

I had a f150 with 3.73 with 34.5 tires. Yes it hurt fuel economy and 0-60 times. But did not lug at all with 5.0.

What can be bad about spacers and 16 bolts? In reality these could be made in any machine shop in the word!!

Full lift kits would be a different story.
For starters, the bolts are probably made with inferior Chinese metal.

I watched it for the velocity blue on the base cause I’ve been considering a basesquatch lately. But everything I’ve heard about rough country makes me leery of anything they sell.
Well yeah it's literally in the name ROUGH country. I was told to stay away from anything they sell jeep suspension wise.

Can you believe Ford is offering a Chinese made 7 speed manual? And what about those electronics, where they coming from?

I'm not trying to argue... but let's be real, many many things including smart phones and computers or their components are built in china.🤷‍♂️

I thought there was a post about that manual tranny, which stated on a production label, it was USA made. At least, it was running around the forum a week or so ago.

there is a reason it's called "rough" country. My 83 F250 rides like an absolute ROCK with their parts on it......

Would a 2inch and 3inch lift kit also level a vehicle? Or is there such thing as a 2inch, or 3inch level and lift kit?
