Re: F-150 powerstroke.

Re: F-150 powerstroke.

Does the front end need to be replaced with a strait axle or will the ttb axle work

Re: F-150 powerstroke.

It could handle the weight. I've seen them do ok with a plow, custom plate bumper and grill guard, etc put on the front. Unfortunately depending on how you drive they will wear faster. Not sure how well the wheel bearing will do, but if your not off roading I think you would be fine...

It will sit lower in the front with out some help from air bags or stiffer / lift springs.
