Back in a powerstroke

Some habits are hard to kick. The Jeep was fun to drive around and I have zero complaints about it, but I needed something bigger and more importantly something I could actally haul **** around in and there really wasn't a point in having 2 offroad toys. My dad has moved his company(drilling chemicals for oil&gas wells) warehouse to OKC and now that I'll be helping him out some, a diesel truck was a must. So I tracked down a '12 F250 Lariat (I don't like the dash on the '13's) and punted the Jeep.

I'm gonna keep this one simple and do more with the interior since I didn't get some options that my F350 had. I really want to focus more on products that we actually sell a lot of to our dealers. I manage two truck accessory stores in the OKC area.

6" Rough Country 4 link conversion
22's and 37" Trail grapplers
Load leveling rear air bags
B&W gooseneck and 7 way in the bed
Gatorhyde spray liner
HID's in h/lamps and fogs
Powersteps
Paint to match grill shell w/ black mesh grill
Rigid 40" behind grill
Tint all the emblems
Black MBRP tip.
Put a layer of 5% tint on all the windows and 35% on the windshield
2wd lower air dam

As for the interior:
Kenwood DNX9990HD with Sync retention
Replacement rear "FORD" emblem with a back up camera
Hybrid Audio "Clarus" components front and rear
Probox single 8"
Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.3 processor
JLAudio HD600/4 and a JL 1200/1
Viper Smart start
Heated and cooled seats, yes we now have the ability to add these to new vehicles.

Here's the pics of the clean slate:

We use Roadwire's carbon fiber heating elements and their switches or Rostra switches. The cooled option isn't gonna happen after all b/c I'd have to replace the leather (they were supposed to have it work with factory leather, but haven't done so yet).

I'm gonna see about getting the factory heated seat switches and integrate those to the aftermarket heaters wiring, shouldn't be too bad. I know a lot of my dealers would probably spring for the added cost if we end up being able to use them.

Hopefully my wheels show up tomm or Thursday so we can get started on it. If not, it will be next week while I'm in Vegas.

Ok thanks
To get the factory switches you would need to buy the complete dual climate heater control

Well surgery began today after we got some customer rides out of the shop.

Wheels and tires are mounted, but I didn't get a pic of them. We got the mirror signals, 3rd brake light, tails, rear Ford emblem and fender badges tinted, we'll lay clear on them tomm. I removed the door emblems and I really like it w/out them now.

Also had my spray liner tech get the 4 link bars, shocks and steering stab. shocks sprayed on Sat.

Pics so far:





Close up of the 4 link bars and the coating.




My Smitty Bilt M1 grill and PTM grill shell and PTM mirror caps are at paint and I hope to get those back on Thursday. Still waiting on AMP to send me my power steps and get my MBRP tip in.

Oh and I ended up going a different route on the wheels. 24" Fuel Hostages (all black) and 38" Nitto Trail grapplers.
