    Changing 98 f150 front lug pattern from 5x135 to 5x5.5

    I have a 98 2wd f150 with an hnm kit up front. Im building a rear axle and the rear axle lug pattern is 5x5.5. Is there an easier way to change the front lug pattern without buying new hubs? I would love to be able to get some bad a** front hubs but i just cant afford it right now. Any info...

    f150 rear bed cage ideas/pics

    Thanks for the input. The spring under kit that giant has on there website is for 96 and older f150s as far as i could tell. Ill probably just go with the deavers and some fox bypasses. As far as mounting the shocks to the axel should i mount them directly to it or use a spring plate shock tab...

    f150 rear bed cage ideas/pics

    I need ideas for a bed cage for my 98 f150. Nothing real fancy just shock mounting and spare tire mount. I have a 9 inch already so all i need is springs and shocks. Shock length???? Anybody tried mounting the leafs under the axle on one of these trucks???? Any and all ideas are welcome. Thanks...
