Lowered the XLT. Other mods to come. From picking it up to adding a hard bed cover and lowering it with Eibach springs.

Looks great, I did the same, it really doesn’t affect the ride much either right?
Thanks. Not much. I drive 100 miles a day on some rough interstates and I don't mind the ride at all.

I have the same lowering springs but havent had the time to install yet. I get second thoughts that I will be scraping all over the place, driveways, speed bumps, etc.. I don't like the slammed look so these look better. Did you do these yourself?

I did. It's pretty straightforward.

I did it just for piece of mind. Not sure I needed to, but my dealer did it $100. Not too bad.

Not yet. It's not as low as some vehicle's I've had. I don't really forsee any issues.

are you still on the stock tires and wheels? I feel like my 245/45/20 ride a bit smoother than the stock after I lowered it.

I am. It rides pretty good still. Nothing I'm gonna worry about for now. I will probably go with something close to what you did when I do change wheels.

I don't think I could get out of my long driveway if I did that. I wonder, did you notice a change in the gas milage after?
Not after lowering it. But what I have noticed is the more mileage I put on the Mav, the higher the mpg. Originally I was getting 29 mpg on average. Now that I have 11k on it, I'm getting closer to 32 mpg. I have gotten 34+ on longer trips.
