Great looking rig.

Perhaps just the camera angle, but it looks like the truck is squatting too much in the rear and putting too much weight on the front trailer tires. Mother-in-law in the back of the truck???

I believe the angle of the photo of the previous x55 behind the Ford F250 is making the boat look bigger than it actually is, or the truck look smaller than it is. Here is my 2010 x55 I had last year behind my lifted 2011 F250.

I don't drive over boat speeds with the bimini up. I just went down the street to get a part for the trailer safty chain. I do believe you should lower the binimi or remove it to go any distance or speed.

LOL, your eyes are not lying. I had parts on order for the truck to replace the springs in the rear so during that picture, the rear suspension was soft.

Rides sweet now though, all work on the truck has been completed!

Good to hear. Did you just go with a heavier spring, or airbags?
