The guys at crappy Bison Ford in Great Falls MT says I need a 2" lift in front, I got new struts to lift it not just 2" blocks.
At only 2" I don't have to change front end parts, supposedly

I rum my tires to the tire recommendation of the truck maker, it is about 10 pounds higher then what ford calls for anyway.

Wife is happy and so am I.
It turned out good and as it turns out 
no need to use the lift struts.
The pumper and lights with the recever and all.
It did mot move the hight more than a 1/4".
I'll return the struts.
