Default superduty prerunner project

I decided im going to keep my 05 and make it an off road toy.

The most important part is the suspension. Still havent decided on what kit I want but It will be 4.5'' and ether a Carli or icon kit. Really leaning towards Carli pin top or coilovers

coilovers


Pin top



over all pic



Bumper: I think im going with N-Fab full replacement because Im a dealer for them.




Lights: Im going with 4 light force 210mm lights (2 spots and 2 wides)



Finders: Going with 3'' fiberglass finders front and rear. Also doing 2 tone ****** when I get them painted.





Wheels: 17'' mickey thompson classic lock black and maybe with the red lock ring if it is close enough to the paint color probably have to add a spacer to bring the tires out to the edge of the finders.



Tires: General Grabber 35/12.5/r17



rear bumper: not really sure what I wanna do here yet. Might make something like this



But I also have been thinking about a tire gate or making my own tire mounting set up. Not really concerned about loosing the function of the bed because I have other trucks for that but It would still be nice to be able to haul a 4 wheeler around. and I like the look of both. Just not sure yet.


Thinking about mounting a big rigid light bar on the roof but not sure yet.

Also not sure If I wanna do some sort of roll bar cage something in the back. That might be later on.



any way always open to opinions and other products you think would fit better that I probably havent found yet or didnt know about! And this truck WILL be used off road and not just a pavement queen

Only thing I'd do different is loose the round lights up front and go with a couple rigid style bars up front

I was going to do that but not sure how it would look with that bumper because it was made for round lights. You would have to stack 2 to fill up the hole in the bumper for lights. Plus I kinda like the look of the round ones but it is kinda old school

Matt have you thought of running an icon coilover kit, that is another option.

Also x2 on the light bars if your open to them. I had round lights and ditched them for a led bar

just found it. there are 2. I was only seeing the 7-9'' ones. So how does that work? do you have to get the icon kit then not use the coils and shocks and use the coils? or can you sup in the coils?

Icon sells a coilover mount kit.

I agree on the leafs not being addresses this is another thing I've been trying to gather info on before I buy my kit.

I think we're in the same predicament here

yeah but is it just and add on and you have to just not use the coils and the socks and just eat that cost or can you substitute them in?

Icon if it will do on and off road. Carli for offroad, the pintops are a great option and work really good, not as good as coilover, but only a minuscule difference to 99% of drivers. The pintops IMO end up being a really durable option, with next to no chance of failing, and leaving you stranded. I ran the M/T Classic Lock 2, they exceeded my every expectation, pounded them often, nice and true new, and same after MUCH abuse. The anodized rings are cool but spendy to swap(for color), I painted mine with no probs, and they looked great. Some may feel they are old school, but I like wheels, never tired of these, loved them the day they went on, loved them when sold(miss em). Super strong, and ability to change the look whenever is hard to beat. Best other upgrade was good driveshaft, Tom Woods made mine, and it was perfect, so smooth. They spent a ton of time getting me what I needed, lots of measuring and angles to get travel and angles perfect. Carli rear leaves shine off road, I would use bags for hauling if needed, but IMO that is a trade-off that is unavoidable for great off-road performance, you would not be disappointed in any way other than the aforementioned loss in hauling/towing capacity, no comparison off-road.

I like my icon coilovers fixing to add a set of piggy back shocks on all 4 corners and it should be ready to handle anything from grocery shopping to desert racing

How "soft" is your truck on road? Alot of Icon trucks I've been in we're a bit harsh.

Any pictures of your truck?

I was wondering if the 4.5 would look to high because that bumper will make it look alot higher than it really is but I dont think it will look bad. This is the truck jacked up to match what the lift would look like.

IMO the light bars looks better and would probably hold up to abuse better and our out more light, but that's just my opinion lol I think with that front bar, you could mount up to bars like the ones in this pic and it would look great!

Got it thanks!

Im just worried If i piece a kit together like that It wont perform as well as a kit that was made to go together but thats just me guessing this is all new to me. Im a motor guy lol most suspension i have messed with is a leveling kit

Same here, but the price of the loaded carli compared to the loaded icon kit is pushing me away....

I think I'm over $1500 difference from the carli to the icon kit.

And I know for a fact if I spend 4500 on a lift and it doesn't perform how I hope I will be more than disappointed.

I know for a fact both kits will perform more than acceptable off road. What I am not sure about is how each will compare on road. I don't want to be stuck with an off road only, something that performs on road is what I'm looking for as well.

If I find anymore threads or info ill pass it your way.

If I go Icon I will go 35s and If I go carli I will go 37s because it seems to be higher and 35s look a tad small

icon 4.5 with 35s



carli 4.5 with 37s



carli with 35s

I like your plans.
I kinda have the same going in a way for mine.
I have the carli kit and i bought fiberwerx fenders and bedsides ill be installing in the next month (waiting on body shop buddy to squeeze me in)

If you wanna get best rear travel do a spring under kit. I did that on my raptor and had 28" o travel and it made a huge difference.
I think 4 linked front/rear and spring under will get you what you want.
Just go with a bed cage as well cuz ur shocks will be sticking thru bed anyways.

I cant wait to see your finished truck sounds badass👍👍

I would LOVE that and it will probably happen at some point but my budget is stretched as it is


and what carli kit do you have and how do you like it and would you buy it again?

The truck with the icon 4.5 and 35's looks nasty. I would check out some method 17x10's and 35x12.50 generals like you mentioned.

You will want bigger tires once you put the fiberglas fenders on, but at least thats stage three so you might need a new set by then.

My vote is for the carli and 37's though.

I thought the fronts looked like cut outs but I could be thinking of something else.

The prerunner fenders normally have a way bigger tire opening then stock.

DPP made a 6.7 Raptor with the Carli and 40s(larger fender openings) that you may want to check out, if you haven't. A guy I went to HS with had a 6.4 with a Carli and 37s and according to him, it rode like a dream. Personally, I'd go w/ the Carli Coilovers bc they like to abuse their chit and it looks like it holds up very well. http://youtu.be/CUtEMQgzvsU Seeing the manufacture do this gives me a little more confidence in the product.

Guess I should pay closer attention buy my reasoning still stands though, looks like their chit is built pretty tough(not saying Icon isn't).

Went for a ride in the carli shop truck and all I can say is holey fu*k that thing rides nice! On and off road. Also another option is the longer rear leafs from the 08+up. I can't remember his name right now but the guy that works for carli on powerstroke.org has the deaver springs from carli for a 08+ newer truck and said it was smoother than the 05-07 springs from carli, just need to move the front hangar forward a bit

When people say the carli rides so smooth I always think to remember they are running 17" rims with 35 or 37s not 20/35+ like most others so that will take alot of the bumps and stiffness out of the ride

That's an off-road tire. If you plan to drive that on the street plan to spend a lot of money on tires.

probably getting paid at work to post this from my POS phone

Can you post pics of your truck with 35s? I thought the 35s looked small with the carli but I've only seen one truck with them

Had some on my raptor
Had a good hwy ride and waaay quieter then toyos lol
I only put 25K on them before i sold it but i was not disappointed. They traction in rain wasnt that great but alot better then nitto mud grapplers.
Im considering another set for my superduty.
I never had a flat in them. Probably toughest tire i know. I abused the snot out of them too. Only complaint was the weight of them.
My raptor was far from stock but u could tell a difference. Got new gears pretty quick.

I haven't seen the best longevity with them. I wouldn't be surprised if the weight of your super duty wore them out even faster.

You might be right. They are load D. I just noticed lol.
The KM2s i have now have 40K+ on them and they have been awesome on tread wear. My 6.4 had same tire in 37" and they held up well too.
The discount tire road hazard is $60/tire and i keep rotating a new one with big puncture in haha. I honestly dont get flats in these either.
Sorry for the derail OP

The GT red letters are nice but i think you can only get up to a 35"
37" is race tire also

That was the first tire set i ran on my raptor. They really were not bad. No howl on hwy. good traction. I didnt run them but 10k mi so im not sure on wear. They are pretty heavy so i bet they are tough

35s dont look bad on your truck. I like the grabber and the 37 tire I like is on back order and it adds alot of cost to the build. might be rethinking tires too.

Good choice for the suspension! Exactly what I want to go with! And I personally would go with the methods in the top picture, just my .02 cents

Methods!
KMC Enduros r sweet too but methods r just the norm it seems like. So simple and clean looking. The new method vegas r pretty tough too.
Thats what i was wanting and they were backordered for 8x170 but i know a few shops been getting them lately.

I do... but I'm old.

I run 16" Pro Comp Rock Crusher steelies. Then again, I do slow wheeling on trails, not fast desert running. steelies are tough, but heavy. Switching to 17" Hutchinson bead locks after these tires wear out. Staying with the Toyos.

I don't recall reading wheel size. I know you want a 37" tire, but on what wheel 17" 22"? If you're really gonna run it hard, go with the taller sidewall.

If you still haven't settled on tires, let me recommend Toyo Open Country MTs. Good on the road, tough as nails on the trail, E rated for a heavy diesel truck.

Looked at walker evans racing rims. im even a dealer for them. I like them really have a race look that im wanting but they are pretty high. But the gray wheel they have really got me thinking about something other than black. now these are the choices. im liking the first one.

The truck is maroon/tan correct? I think it might have too many colors going on with the grey/black wheels. Maybe someone can photoshop them on the truck for you.

Same here... first one. Nice contrast with the rim. Looks more like a real bead lock.

If you ever want to do more than pre-running, like slow wheeling in the tough stuff, you'll need to air down the tires. Hutchinson makes a true (internal) bead lock that's DOT approved. Those are my next wheels.

http://www.rockmonsterwheels.com/pro...uct=fordtrucks

Pricey though, gonna wait for these tires to wear out.

Looks like you're off to a good start. Kinda interested to see what a pre-runner Super Duty looks like.

I'd go 35s so you can actually get full travel and really put the new suspension to use.

I'll be the black sheep and say go 37's. might require trimming to get full use, but I think it would perform better than a 35, and smoother

And then there is always that haha. 35's on 17's might be the cheapest route to go

Its not really that i want to go cheap. its just I like the grabbers and they only come in a 35 and they are so much cheaper. I was dead set of 37s because I didnt want them to look to small but after seeing that truck with 37s I think 35s will be fine.

I think 37s look best, but if you're actually gonna use it as a prerunner, I'd go w/ 35s, especially since the wheel wells are smaller on the pre 08 trucks.

Yeah I forgot pre 08 trucks had the smaller wheel wells. However the carli rep on powerstroke.org stuffed 37's on his 06 with their leveling kit. He said major trimming was needed especially with stock wheels. I'll see if I can find the pics. But this leads me to believe with the right wheel and minor trimming a 37 should be okay, jmo of course

37's with a leveling kit is nothing new, the challenge is getting full suspension articulation at any steering angle.

The OP got a 4.5" kit though right? If he decides to go 37's he would probably have to pull back the wheel well liner, and with the correct rims shouldn't touch the radius arms. But yeah if your turning hard and hits a whoop it might make things interesting. Or.... Get fiberglass fenders and call it good

Lol drive slow for 6 mo then tear it up once you get the fenders. If the fiberglass fenders open up enough, I'd definitely say get 37s. Plusher ride with the extra meat, and it'd look better

Well it was getting lowered and stuff.... But then idk when i finally get it running I will want to drive it... and it will be just that much funner if it had a carli kit on it haha. It wont get beat on like it would on my 05 tho. That was the original idea with doing it to my 05 was I was going to take it off road jump it at the dunes and not care so much but my 06 I dont think I could do that to... (as much )


yeah I got them. They are at a buddys house in cali right now waiting on some boxes to ship them.

I guess I just like the idea of a prerunner with compounds lol

Maybe you could put some small compounds on the 05 and beat on it but still realize MY dreams of a prerunner with twins
