In this post, we went over the merits of fitting a leveling kit to your truck, and today we’re going to take another look, but instead of looking at kits per se, we’re going to focus on understanding the pros and cons of fitting three particular kits from two well-respected manufacturers MotoFab and Rough Country who manufacture some of the best F150 leveling kits available. All with regards to one specific model the 2004 – 2019 Ford F150 – the best selling pick up truck in the US.
Trucks are the pinnacle of automotive utility. Whether it’s that heavy commercial job or your choice of vehicle for a camping holiday, trucks pack a big punch when it comes to space and utility. Although we are spoiled with the wide variety of trucks on the market, the Ford F150 is America’s top choice and has been the best-selling vehicle for many years. While the F150 is built for rough and tough environments, there is one part of the truck that usually gets the most pounding, the rear bed!
The simple scheme of an automotive air conditioning system consists of an evaporator, condenser, drier, expansion valve, tubing, and the main component, the compressor.
The compressor is responsible for the increase of pressure in the system. The pressure allows the refrigerant to get pumped through all of the components of the air conditioning system. It also raises the pressure and temperature of the fluid, allowing the car to cool effectively. The AC compressor is belt driven and runs off of engine power.
Master cylinders are a central component in the modern hydraulic braking systems. They ensure that brake power is distributed correctly to the front and rear of the vehicle. Back in the old days, two master cylinders with independent reservoirs were used; they also had two different adjustable pushrods that moved the piston to generate the required pressure for the brake system to act on the wheels. This design was robust, and engineers searched for new ways to produce braking power.
Wanting to lift your truck is one of the most sought after mods you can do to your truck. A lift kit can typically raise your truck anywhere from less than one inch to around twelve inches.
When lifting your truck, you need to look at it from a practicality perspective. Yes, a twelve-inch lift would make your truck look great, but if you plan on daily driving your truck, it might not be the greatest experience. Or if your buddy has a six-inch lift, do you need a seven-inch lift? Purchase a kit that fits within your budget, your lifestyle, and your builds goals.
