Few changes to the F350

Well I haven't had any luck selling my truck so I've decided to hang on to it and also make a few changes to get over my boredom with it. Gone are the 24's and 40's and onto something smaller and more travel friendly.

The new rolling stock is 22x11 Fuel "maverick" 2 piece wheels and 37" Nitto trail grapplers. I'm really happy with how it looks now and even more happy about the ride.

The 40's weren't terrible by any means, but I knew there was a lot of room for improvement and I am so glad that I did. The suspension doesn't feel "taxed" and no more highspeed vibe. One main reason for the switch also is that I will be back out doing sales calls again and plan to buy at least a 26' or 28' enclosed trailer to tote my vette and my wife's newly acquired 72 chevelle around.

Other changes I'm doing for sure are powdercoating various suspension pieces, painted mirror caps and I've already switched to a single tail pipe. I'm on the fence about painting the bumpers to match and tinting all the emblems. Anyway, here's some crummy cell pics from earlier.

Thanks. And yes I have a layer of 35% on the windshield. It looks a lot darker than normal though. I have 15% on the rest of the glass with a layer of 5% over that.

Lol.

Tinted windshields are legal there?

Do you have mirrored sunglasses with the mirror on the inside too?

Heehee j/k

I'm betting you have no use for mudflaps, right?

They aren't unless you have a written doctor's order for it. But my shop tints most of the local LEO's personal cars so I don't get hassled.

And no I don't. I built this truck strictly to hit up the Sonic's
