I haul with a lifted truck & it hauls fine, even passed the Dept. Of Transportation check. Only thing I hate about it? It's a long way up to the cab!

When I bought my 4X4 it felt like I was mounting from the ground. I made them throw in a pair of chromed nerf bars so I can get in and out. It's still a pretty good lift.

I have the chrome nerfs too, it's still a chore! And it's a long box, I have to scope out parking spots otherwise I don't stop at certain places. Oh & try to find underground parking.....nope, you are parking the city lot even if the hotel supplies the parking! It stays at home now on trips, I don't care how "sexy" it looks.

LOL! I know, I rent a car when I have to go to a 'city' with no parking. I have a short bed, and I don't know why, but I have always found parking my Dodge Truck (I had a 1500 before I got my 4X4) easier than parking the Ford. Something about the way it's designed in the front, makes it fee smaller than the Ford or something. I have a Hayell of a time parking that Ford!

My f250 is lifted 4 inches with 35's. I pull a gooseneck at least once a week and never had any issues with it
