I just bought a used 4X4 17 F250, man this thing is tall. I would like to lower it some what. Has anybody done anything with these newer trucks?

I have one and they are ridiculously tall. Like I am going to go mud bogging in my $70k truck. Everywhere I go I look at 2016 and earlier and they sit a lot lower so it sure makes me wonder WTF was Ford thinking?

Hell I had to re-learn how to get into this thing it is so high. Probably 4-6" higher then my last superduty. I imagine I will wear out the drivers seat in half the time now. lol.

I’m guessing they finally put some real springs in them.

I had to add springs to my 12 to keep it from dragging ass when towing

The ass is all jacked up in the air like my 03 F350 is. I think it will be great pulling a trailer but I hardly every do that.

Last year I was at a Ford dealer and took these pics.

16 vs. 17

Both have the same FX4 package.
I did not measure but the '17 appeared to be 2 inches taller.

Yes, the new ones stand tall

I recently bought a 2011 F150 4x4.

Ford added a 1 1/4 inch block in the rear under the springs on the 4wd models vs. the 2wd..

I am going to remove those blocks the help level the truck out.

Not sure how thick your blocks are on your '17 tho

My 17 has a 3" block, the guy that had it first must have raise the front. I will hook up my trailer first and I will lower the whole truck later. thanks for the pics.
