Above all that aluminum skidplating and plastic cladding on our EcoBoost F-150 is the infamous independent front suspension (IFS). IFS has good ride characteristics, but when modified for large tires the many adjustable mounting points can loosen and cause added tire wear and steering woes. Add to that the lack of gearing and locker options and the fact that most half-ton axle CVs are not up to the stress of big tires, and you can see our qualms with the average IFS.
