For 2018 New Years Eve we checked out Rabbit Valley in Colorado, and Goblin Valley in Utah. The snow made it fun, everybody stayed warm though!

My rig Bruiser getting some frequent flyer miles during our last camping trip. RTT was on my trailer at camp for this shot.

I've been offroad on this more than my Jeep the last couple of years so I guess I would have to call it my expedition vehicle

yeah, it got a 2006 f350 radius arm 60 front axle in it. Rides, brakes and steers way better.

easy install, all factory parts.

here is what you need of 2005+ donor (i used 2006 f350 for all part numbers)
-coils
-buckets
-radius arms
-radius arm mounts
-steering box and you will need to buy 14mm x 1.5mm bolts to attach box. i dont remember the length. 6.0l head studs work too.
-all steering linkage
-sway bar
-front axle
-panhard bar and mount
-high pressure powersteering line off a 2006 6.0l
-EVERY SINGLE BOLT USED TO ATTACH THE ABOVE PIECES ^^^

-i had to go back and get these. PITA. radius arm use a weird metric bolt.


q-did it get rid of the steering wander?
a-yes, kinda. as long as all steering linkage and ball joints are perfect.

note-ford specd the front axles to wear out quickly. factory caster is 3*. this puts a lot of stress on the tie rods, which beats up the balljoints and causes death wobble. Down the road i plan on increasing the caster to at least 6* to help the return to center.

benefits
-steers a lot tighter circle than the dana 50
-brakes way better, super noticeable
-handling and ride quality is much noticeably improved even with out a sway bar.

i use bilstein 5100s on the front. with the 7.3l this is fine for high way driving and gravel roads. that being said, id rather have some big boy kings for the rough stuff. the bilsteins fade fast in the bouncy stuff. going over rocks etc.

the steering-i bought a new ported box to replace the 150k one off the 2006 f350. steering feel is fine with 35s for road use. id like to go bigger eventually and hydro assist would be nice.

is the suspension lifted? no it is not. factory rear springs and block 2", front uses factory f350 diesel coil springs.

hope this helps. probably ought to have put all this in a thread somewhere. didnt think any body would be that interested in it. lol
