And not sure why you said not true because that is true. That also happens everyday.

I edited that out of my last post because it came across dickish. You replied before I submitted though. Thanks for not reading too much into the tone of the statement.

Yes some items will have a gray area. but others not so much and easy to fight if they deny.

Lifts are pretty easy till you get to ball joints, cv joints, differentials because of larger tires, things of that nature.

Air intakes, programmers, things of that nature are complete puzzles because of the drive train and such.

So yes, the MMA is pretty good for lifts but is damn near useless on other modifications unless you feel like ponying up the money.

it just all depends on what the failure is. but you can pony up quite a bit. Also depends if you are in the small claims court dollar amount or not. I had an issue, lawyer wanted 18k up front and said it would take up to two years to complete, with a probable chance of wining. I thought about it and ended up spending the money on my hemi conversion instead

The best way to go about it is to find a dealer that is lift or mod friendly and have all your service done there. Also to remember just because you are paying a dealer to install a lift, doesnt mean they are actually installing it. A lot of them pay a local off road place to do it. A lot of them use 4wheelparts. So essentially you are paying two places to do the install

That's why I have a H2 and would never drive a Jeep.

There were others around the 10k mark, but all my contacts said the 18k guy was "the guy" I would have more than likely come out way better in the end, from what I was told. But it was just too much money and head ache to deal with over a long period of time. I had already fought the issue for 6 months on my own.

For that kind of money up front, I would need a guarantee of money back to me in the end or get my original funds back if he was a dip shite.

Quick question for anyone with the step on the tailgate. Has anyone figured out a good way around having to keep that plastic protector on there? I had a spray in bedliner done, but they said if you take that off and spray it, it looks bad b/c of the holes in the tailgate and such. Anyone found any way around this?

Got a Roll-N-Lock tonneau cover put on today. Very happy with the results. Will be able to throw luggage and crap in the back now. Supposedly helps with gas mileage too, but I'm skeptical on that one.

Where you in Baton Rouge by CCLA a few days ago? If not there is an identical truck minus that gay bed cover.



Beautiful truck though

Cover is new , but I haven't been back to BR in a bit. Sucks that someone has one close to it; one of the best things about it was the uniqueness

Thanks buddy Though if they come through with the new KR color in 2015, I may upgrade then.

Mannnn I don't want to burst your bubble, but a leveled F150 with chrome rims and mud tires is less unique than a factory F150

frick, nvm. I read one page back.

Would a 4" lift look stupid on an XLT? I'm thinking about leveling it out but not afraid of bigger ideas

More unique with the green color, KR, and that I left the aluminum wheels instead of getting chrome (basically since it's more stock than normal)
