F*** ROADS No, they are stock height. aftermarket, stock replacement leafs. They are the 2+1 lighest load capacity spring i could get. Trying to keep it low and soft as possible.
12-15-2017 04:44 PM
Gozuki Are those lift springs?
12-15-2017 02:52 PM
F*** ROADS Custom u bolt flip. New springs& shocks
12-15-2017 02:49 PM
F*** ROADS Fun fact, auto transmissions like to keep fluid on the inside.... for anyone with a 4.6L , can use a cooler from a 5.4L. They are twice as big as the 4.6 ones... so more cooling powa.
12-15-2017 02:43 PM
F*** ROADS Code p2106. Throws a different light then the check engine. Truck runs like absolute shit, and un-useable. Plug both sensors in. Restart. bam! Happy as a cucumber!
12-15-2017 02:40 PM
F*** ROADS As stated above, the truck will not run properly with the sensors pulled. Regardless if the ABS system is " on" or "off" even having the sensors plugged in, but not bolted to the hub, it will trigger forced limited power. Which makes the truck NOT HAPPY. will not go above 60kmh. So far, the sensors need to be seeing the tone rings while driving, for it to be happy.
11-28-2017 06:03 PM
Gozuki What happens if you pull the sensors?
11-28-2017 02:40 PM
F*** ROADS The ABS is still disconected via the fuse, ive had it off for years because the system started to act dysfunctional. Technically everything should work as factory, just no intention of fixing the abs at any point. I prefer it wothout. But i can report the truck is still happy as long as the hub wires are conected..
11-13-2017 06:25 PM
Gozuki So your ABS is disabled by pulling the fuse, or back to functional?
11-08-2017 05:30 PM
F*** ROADS Wow! That is a killer deal! Especially with the new motor, which one? 4.6 or 5.4? Gut the cats and get that thing going! I am happy to update that everything is happy and its driving great! Still have abs fuses pulled, but no codes or faults. Snow happened up here so needed 4x4... got the factory front 150 driveshaft lengthend & got a 1330 to 1350 conversion u joint put in. Been daily driving it for about 3 weeks now. Four wheel has been in the last week.

Stout Fabrication Today at work we had an '04 crew cab that they decided to pull the plates on because the cats are bad and they don't want to fix it. It has 165,000 miles on it and they just put a rebuilt motor in it 1,500 miles ago. $400 later, I will be driving that sucker home tonight. They put brand new 33" Toyo's on it when they did the motor, so those will offset my cost of the truck when I strip it down and go to one tons and link it. Good to hear about these axles working out so well... Seems like an easy swap, especially if the ABS is happy!!
10-25-2017 12:13 PM
F*** ROADS Also, 5125s
10-25-2017 11:36 AM
F*** ROADS But so far, all abs sensors are, as i can tell the same. Rear axle is happy, and now, pass side front hub has an f250 abs wire, and driver has an f150 abs sensor bolted to the hub. All plugs are the same. Also tone rings must be identical, because i have had the truck up past 120kmh this weekend. No issues or codes as of now.
10-25-2017 11:31 AM
F*** ROADS Lol truly not worked up, just find it funny you seem to care so much... at this point im enjoying wasting your time. I thank all for their input. I respect anyone who doesnt start a post with. Urr weldZz looc liek shit hahalololzz. Anywayyy...
Good news for all. The truck never liked not having the front abs wired hooked up. Already knew this, but was an issue. It would go into limp mode once you went above 80kmh. This is the code that pops up.
10-25-2017 11:25 AM
F*** ROADS Stock coil buckets, its a bit of both, there is a bit of a bow to them, really not bad though.

I also built my whole rig with a 120v mig, with argon, including chopping and rebuilding front and rear frame ends.

Not that any of it matters, OP doesn't want to listen to anyone.

Welcome to pirate cocksucker
OK, we are not too different in the respect of our rigs. I have to admit, i weaved all my welds together. Lately I've been doing circles, i think they're better, both looking and penatrating.

A good hot pass can be done with no weave. It really depends on the welder, the machine, the position, etc. No one size fits all rule here, but I agree with you here, dude should have tied that in a lot better.

snowracer back in post #44 you show the coil buckets and looks the coil have some mad bow to them, is that just the camera angle or are they actually like that? as looks like you are using stock F150 buckets?

No pre heat, ever, but it would help with thicker metal. Striking an arc hasn't been an issue unless my ground is bad, or I'm trying to weld on dirty metal. The only trouble I've had with it is the liner came undone at the curve before the handle itself. Since i run. .035 Flux core, i don't need argon, so i pulled the liner out from the handle back to just before the curve, and no issues since, but i do need to reline it, and will once i get a new mig. Thinking of going with a larger machine and plasma cutter if i can find a decent buy both for a percentage off deal.

YotaAtieToo I'm not butt hurt, just pointing out the obvious, you seemed to be getting worked up though . You posted on a public forum, if can't handle some criticism, then you might want to try Facebook.

F*** ROADS Fucin right ! Lol at the dead nuns
Good to know. Everything welded on this was a miller 220v mig machine. .035 wire
10-19-2017 03:02 PM
sterlingfire I've got a little tech again, you can say fuck as well. The only thing that is frowned upon here, and WILL get you banned are racial slurs.
My whole truck was welded with a lincoln 135 plus lol. It's a 110 volt machine, and i did my beadlocks too, no dead nuns as of yet...
10-19-2017 12:57 PM
F*** ROADS Lol dude, the fack that YOU think they are shit is funny. Stop being so butthurt and move along, you are unwanted. I dont care what 1 person on the internet thinks, stop pushing your " ideas" as fact. MIG is not TIG, no stack of dimes here.. plus, you were not present for the weld, you have no idea on, position, technique, welder used, wire size. Fu** off. You are not ading to the tech on this page. MOVE ALONG PLEB.
