Beem's Build Thread

Hey everyone! New on this forum and decided to post my intro/build here. especially since the build section gets little to no traffic. i picked up this 2007 F250 4x4 about 3 weeks ago and its an awesome truck! ill let the pictures do the talking!

First glimpse, traded in my 05 Acura TL 6speed for it. I loved my Acura, awesome reliability and just overall a very well built car.... for Chicago where im from. the black leather and nighthawk black pearl paint was not forgiving here in Phoenix.



ProComp leveling kit with all shocks and stabilizer shock. ProCom 18x9 wheels on Nitto all terrains 295/60(65?)r18 cant remember.



My buddies can now accept me into their gang of prerunners haha



day after i bought it my dog and i went to lake pleasant for some 4x4 fun!





we all went out to butcher jones at night and i realized i couldnt see ****.



here is with my neighbors truck.



today i hooked up the high idle wire to my #4 aux switch, yes even in phoenix with 115 degrees it still takes a few minutes for it to warm up. i also changed the oil out for Rotella T6 with a motorcraft filter. next step i am going to flush the ford gold coolant out and run cat coolant. and replace the fuel filters. the truck has 112K miles on it but seriously runs top notch!

still need to wire in my Greddy turbo timer..



looking into the 4" turboback MBRP exhaust from ebay for $275 shipped. is it any good?

I personally use dashboss. There a lot of options out there. A lot of folks seem to like the cts as was recommended above or even the torque app.

I like the torque cheap can remove without worrying about someone stealing your monitor. Then just get a fuel pressure and egt gauge.
