    How do you like that Super40? My buddy down the road has that on his but I havent gotten the chance to hear it. I've got the Super44 and love it.

    3" over stock. Ill take a pic right now. Yeah I wanna raise the back probably an inch or so once I have the money for the AAL.

    It sounds good! Kind of mild for what I like but maybe thats because the F250 i was borrowing from my brother had a 460 with no cat and a super 44 ;) its not very loud in cab, but it sounds clean and outside it sounds sick bouncing off the limiter :)

    I would, you have more of a lift than me for sure.. you have at least 1/2 an inch more room before your bump stop.

    I wouldnt unless you need to, you are at a very high angle and that can tear the cv boot and break it.
