If anyone else has blocks removed and or shackles... I would love to see some pics if you have any. @Sadz when you end up getting the work done I definitely would like to see the outcome!

Looks great! I'm biased, but I love the long bed. Can't wait to see the wheels :geek:

Question…..

I’ve been thinking about removing the rear blocks BUT what about the change in pinion angle. Would it be enough to affect the “u” joints??

from what I was told you would have to drop it around 3 to 4 inches to affect the pinion angle and along with that is should not affect the "u" joints either,

I didn't ever see myself doing it, but I think I might take this approach this time around.

I STILL want super high quality damping and not sacrifice any of my towing capabilities, but instead of leveling the truck up front, drop the back instead.

Basically I might skip the whole tall tire approach, is really what I'm saying. I need to find some appropriate sized Load E tires to fill the gap of an un-raised truck.

Your latest pic update looks fantastic!

I have the HDPP with the mid level tow package and can’t stand how high mine sits in the rear (or in the front if I’m completely honest) but how would removing the blocks affect any of the payload or towing capacities? Also how is it done? Are there any pictorials detailing the procedure?

the main reason I did it and did not have to sacrifice towing or payload is because of the air bags, we went on vac. and I had the back stacked from floor to the top I'm talking 2 big coolers filled with food, we had all our alcohol, soda, water, all out beach stuff, you get the picture and it dropped about 2'' blew up the bags to 50lbs and levered her out (I have not towed yet), I'm the same way I did not want to raise the front and wanted the back lowered, our yard manger has an '19 F-150 and he did it and I followed suit very easy to do, here's the tires I put on Michelin LTX AT 2 285/55R20 love them I have around 40k on and still have plenty of tread
good luck on your decision it took me 12 month to make my decision, thanks by the way

I don't know that it takes away from your towing capabilities, taking out the blocks only lowers it so if you hook a trailer to it, it will still drop or sag, for me personally I wouldn't do it unless you have air bags, WDH, or maybe a set of sumo springs (if you tow a lot) JMHO, sorry I don't have any pictures but it very simple to do

Is that possible?
I know you can get Max Tow without HDPP, but I thought you could not get HDPP without getting MaxTow. The configuration automatically adds it.
