    What are you looking to do?

    I recommend not lifting it.

        Cowboy hats and Chrome,bring it all home!

        Go to the local Cruise nights to see the "look" your going for,as well as the drag strip.I would suggest the Diesel Stop as your first options for some advice and experience.What do you do with your truck is it show,or work,or Friday night carwash? If you haul i would suggest Rickson wheels as a good dress-up and an upgrade,this technique works two ways and looks better to the tax man(write offs).If you want function,qaulity,and same day install,Truck stops and Autozone type Box stores work good(seem to have more dress up and chrome than the others).Don't forget tractor supply store,they have bull bars tool boxes 12 volt pumps CHROME EVERYTHING and CBs,not to mention every and all hydraulics you would ever need, either to improve or just on hand repairs.I personally shop Tractor Supply it seems more American Pride to me.And I'm a hillbilly,so that helps too.....................greasy

          You are assuming where I live we have "Cruise Nights," and my Tractor Supply Store is more of a feed store than anything else. I live in Podunk, USA

              Ever consifer dressing it down?

              My next visual modifications on the truck will probably be removing the badges, blacking it out and possibly lowering it onto 35" tires and making some more power. Thats the look I like...

              If you're going chrome... I have some of that already one the truck. The bug shield on the hood, the chrome wheel well covers, fancy badges... etc.

              They look good either way, they are the best looking and performing trucks on the road.

                I too live in the sticks,2,000 people in my town.Wal-mart=15 miles.tsc=30 miles.There are 10 farms per town in my area.I merely referenced the cruise night as a way to see what styles and products are from near and far(alot tourists bring "toys" with them on summer break).Diesel Manor (nh),and MASS diesel (Mass),are good suppliers.If you are WAAAY up in the Adirondacks,try Canadian suppliers.They are almost the same exchange right now,and they have everything we have.Some of my old Fords were built in canada,so you know they know FORD.......................Also try Ford truck Enthusiest Web site good guys over there..greasy..

                  I think that would be your best bet as well...not only will you find some good deals, but you'll definitely know what all is out there for the Powerstroke...
