35's, leveling kit, cruise control, 08 tails (lots o pics)

Yep I’ve been busy this last month.

I was looking around on eBay and came across a cruise control kit for 05-07 superdutys. It was 150 bucks so I jumped on it!

The install was pretty straight forward.
Ford part number 5C3Z-9A818-AAA





Now on to the good stuff. I purchased some 35x12.5x17 bfgoodrich mud terrain km2 tires. Had them mounted to the stock XL wheels (hey I’m cheap and I love the 0 maintenance these wheels require) I may upgrade to black rock crawlers - I’m undecided. Anyway I also got a 2.5" leveling kit installed. I think it turned out great.

Before

After





I found a nice deal on some 08 tails so I grabbed em. I however was not aware that this was not a plug and play mod. . SO after some research I found that a few venders make some wiring kits to make it plug and play. I didn’t agree with the price (I’m cheap, as mentioned earlier) so I made a trip to the junkyard in search of some options. Upon my arrival I came across a 2004 lincolin LS... Bingo, just what I needed. 3 bucks later I was on my way home.







So, all in all it ended up costing me a little time to run to the junkyard, but well worth it imo. Plus I saved a lot of money (no, not by switching geico).

Also here is a previous thread - 08 center console and bucket seats.

Enjoy!
Any questions please ask away!
Thanks for looking

^yes they bolt right in but the reverse light harness is different though

What seller did you get the cruise control kit from? I want to do that to my work truck. What else do I need besides the steering wheel?
