Bought this truck right before Christmas. 15 STL. Leveled it out this past weekend with the drop shackles. So far its been great. Hooked up to a dump trailer this past weekend and it is night and day difference from my F-150. I had an 08 before I decided to downsize.

How do you like it with drop shackles? Any squatting issues when towing a load?

There is about an inch of rake. I hooked up a dump trailer over the weekend that was around 10k. Didn't squat it much at all maybe about a 1/2 under level. That's probably the heaviest thing Ill tow. My toy hauler is 7300 dry and about 9500 fully loaded. I haven't hooked it up yet but I expect about the same results.

I will say I think the ride improved with the longer shackles though. The rear end seems to absorb the bumps better now.

That pic with the Denali wheels is perfect. Can you share the details of that setup?
2" Mcgaughys drop shackle in the rear. Front either stock height or ever so slightly cranked. Tires are 35x12.50 Toyo MTs.

How does it sit when towing with the drop shackles?

Most I've hauled was about 7-8k and it didn't have any issues. Sat fine.
