    I have a 02 F-250, with the front timbrens, for the summer do you guys leave them in or take them out. Reason I ask is that I ride on the timbens when the plow is off, just wondering, easy to take off.

    Do you have the X springs on your truck? I drove on my timbrens for one summer and then put in new leaf springs. I did not like the timbrens contacting the axle all the time. Instead of the springs and shocks absorbing impact a lot gets transferred to the frame. I guess it all depends how much they are contacting the axle. If they are just barely contacting I'd leave them in. If they are really bulged then I'd take them off. If you don't have X springs on your truck, which is front spring code "X" on your door sticker I'd definitely get them. Just saw you have the 810. That is why the timbrens, huh?

    mine is the 5200 lb front, with the 810, you need them. They are alittle more then slightly, but not bulging, you can tell your riding somewhat on them.

    I have a Ford F350 Diesel with a Blizzard 810 my truck has the 5200lb front axles. I have added a front leaf spring to the truck now it sit level front to rear. I also have timbrens on front and rear. I leave the timbrens and leaf springs year round on my truck it rides fine and has no problems. Thats just my opinion though.
