Motto: That's my $0.02, see if you can turn it into $1,
Hey guys, I kinda made an unofficial thread about this truck while looking for one asking you guys what truck I should buy (I know, it makes no sense to me either right now), but I figure I'll make a dedicated thread to this truck!

As some of you guys know I came out of two lifted trucks ('97 F-150 and '99 F-350) to get into a car (2013 Fusion), but I traded that in last week for a 2006 F-250!

Old vehicles:

Current mods:

1. Selective high idle on AUX 4 switch (brings my idle from 750 to 1250 RPM when aux 4 is on). I did this to make it easier to jump cars by myself.
2. Tie down hooks in the stake pockets in the bed
3. Put my old toolbox on if that counts.
4. Off road lights in the rear for reversing
5. 08-16 Superduty style tail lights
6. 11-16 Superduty Powerstoke badge
7. Door trim moldings removed
8. Edge Insight CTS2 monitor

Thanks guys! I had to make that little car look manly some how lol. I also never washed the F-350, just put a fresh coat of mud on it every now and again. The mud helped cover the rust lol.

Thanks guys! Got a little funny story for you here. I bought some tires (used of course) and I was going to give my dad my old tires. The tires that I bought came on Chevy wheels so they'd fit his truck so we wanted to see if the tires would clear when he turns as he's on 31's and I'm on 33's. Long story short the tires are on his truck and now belong to him lol. Basically I was going to put these tires (Toyo A/T II's) on my wheels and give my dad my tires (Toyo H/T's) but we weren't sure if they were too big so we just put the A/T's on his truck to see if they would fit since they came with Chevy wheels and now I still need A/T tires and my dad got tires lol.

Before:


After:


I know it's not related to my truck lol, but it was supposed to be. Anyway, the wheels probably won't stay, we'll probably put the chrome 18's on these tires. Also someone can find the thread I started when my dad bought this and you could probably quote me where I said it would not be lifted. I lied. We are in the works of starting a lift project on it lol. It's a PITA though because it's on airbags so the lift might take a little bit of time to get on the truck but we are going to lift the Escalade. We're only doing a 3" lift on it so it can still fit in a parking garage.

Also my next mod to the truck is going to be either tires (that was supposed to be today), or an EGR delete. I think I'm getting the delete kit tomorrow but we're getting some snow and I don't want to have my engine in pieces while it's snowing / raining so it'll be a project for a clear day unless I have a shop do it.
