If you are going to buy or build a lifted truck you need to watch this video! Today we cover 5 things you need to know before buying a lifted Truck! As we drive the SCA Performance Apex, we show you the difference in a stock F-150 versus a lifted F150. The first thing you need to remember is that when you lift a Ford F-150 you will need to retorque the suspension after about 5,000 miles.

      Gently used V8 or gently used Eco-boost? Having a hard time trying to decide.

      It's a fraction of the cost to go ahead and get a fx4 loaded or a platinum and fo get and install your own lift and tires for a fraction of the cost. I bought a 2019 ram long horn Laramie and put a procomp stage 1 ..1600 for lift. 1000 to install . 2k for rims and tires . 4600 out the door compared to financing and 10 to 15000k.. The manufacture of the vehicle by law still have to keep the warranty on the truck! Procomp also has a power train warranty no questions asked !

      not everyone knows about the whole “law” that manufacturers have to follow to keep vehicles under warranty.

      That’s good to know. I love lifted trucks, but I rather buy it already done. And since I know I’ll never pull anything, my tires will last a very long time. I love F-150’s.

      Also think long and hard (heh) about the type of lift you want. Keep in mind that lifts of certain heights or certian styles of lifts will require other work to be done to the vehicle, or may damage the vehicle if not prepared for properly. some examples:

      -at least in my experience, lifting above 2.5" without any mechanism for correcting front axle CV angles or upper control arm (UCA) ball joint angles will increase wear and tear and could cause eventual parts failure; this is why 4" and higher lifts usually include differential drop brackets and new steering knuckles, and some 3" lifts will come with improved UCAs
      -4" and higher lifts with new crossmembers require you to CUT THE TRUCK'S FRAME, i.e. you are stuck with that lift kit unless you can weld your frame back together
      -you may need to get longer brake lines if you are not comfortable with using the brake line extension brackets (some adjusting of the hard metal lines may be required, which makes me nervous, personally)

      just a few extra things to think about

      Wish the NTSB would flat out Ban these Trucks! They are too big ,way more than anyone needs , they Scream “ Look at me I’m a Arrogant human who loves taken up way to much space” If was up to me without proof of the absolute need for a vehicle this big , you can’t buy it🤦‍♂️

      +Alan Simmns I live in the country on a decent size property. I tow loads up to 6000#. I also work in a national wildlife refuge. I agree though I see many a large truck sitting in apartment parking lots in the city. And too pretty to be actually work trucks.

      Porcelain Throne , I’m curios besides the typical excuse of “ because I wanted one” what do you or other buyers do to justify an absolute need for a truck this big? don’t say I hunt maybe once a year. I’ll bet 90% of these lifted trucks never leave the pavement! A vehicles main purpose is to get you from point A to B,that’s it.. so in theory a oversized vehicle is just Arrogant..

      Trucks a great but I’d rather buy a truck like a king ranch or something more high end then lift it and do lift and tires my self I have 2 lifted trucks one being a obs F-150 actually a 1996 lifted 6inches with 20x12 tis wraped In toyo mt. It’s going to be my show truck/weekend driver only thing is it’s not so fast because it has a old reliable 300 i6 5 speed. My other is a 13 F-150 with a 3.5 6 inch lift with 20x10 fuels wrapped in general grabber at2 which I’m switching to toyo soon as I can I don’t care for the generals. Something else that will help the trucks slapping a programmer on Ive got a mbrp exhaust on mine and I’m about to get a programmer too it helps a lot from what I have heard little quicker boost for better take off esp when towing

      never will because trucks are usually bought for workers and they already complain about the bed too high to constantly lift crap in and out all day long

      The video is right on time. I was planning to do a 2" lift kit on my F150, 2011. It scares me to screw up my truck.

      QUESTION: I am looking at a 2016 Silverado 1500 with the v8 6spd. This truck is at a dealership and has a 6inch lift with 35" tires.. how can I tell if it has the correct gears in it? I think this configuration for this truck calls for a 4.11 or even a 4.56 ratio. But how can I tell if the truck has the new gears of the dealership doesn't know? Please reply asap. Thank you

      Lower offset* pushes the wheel out not higher

      Town and Country TV In reply to xObeyGuz

      You are correct! But when you push the wheel out, you typically have to have a little more lift to clear the same size tire.

      Better to be geared too low any day of the week. In my opinion there is no such thing. Even stock I prefer 4:10 for the get up and go. Especially in reverse with a manual. It's getting harder to get proper gear ratios with all the EPA mileage demands in modern pickups though. My new Rubicon has 4:10 stock. My new F150 has 3:55. Not horrible!. The 10 speed transmissions though have vastly compensated for the tall gearing. You can always lock out 10th gear and have pretty good pep with 10 speed in sport mode. Drive an Eco Boost 2.7 with 10 speed in Sport mode. You will not believe it.

      Just to note- “larger offset” doesn’t mean what you think it does. Just something I see a lot in the truck markets. Good video info for newbies though!

      If I lift my truck do I need to buy 5 tires/rims to account for the lift
