Another F250 build.

Well the black truck didn't last long and found another home. I searched for a dually as I've had the itch to build for a while, but couldn't find a used one with the options I wanted nor anything near the price I wanted to pay. So my dealer friend found me this cream puff. 11 Lariat, White platnium paint, tan interior with some custom inserts and bone stock. Has all the goodies I wanted. Heated/cooled seats, remote start, home link, back up camera etc, etc.

Here she is with her first tow:


Plans for this one:

10" lift with Fox shocks. All the suspension pieces will be powder coated purple
I'm still debating wether to go ahead and order a set of the Fabtech 4.0 dirt logic coil overs or not...
Axles are going to be stripped and painted(satin black) before the lift goes on
Dual Fox steering stabalizers
40" M16's
24" Fuel "Maverick" 2 pc wheels
Painted bumpers, mirror caps, grill shell with a '13 Platinum center section
2wd valance
Spray in bed liner
Tint (already done) 30% ceramic film on the windshield. 15% on the rest with a layer of 5% over that.
Amp power steps (already done)
Recon lighted fender badges (white)
H&S XRT Pro
EGR and DPF delete. 5" exhaust (powder coated black)
Tinted tails, 3rd and mirror signals
Tinted cab lights
8K HID's in the head lamps and fogs. LED replacement bulbs in the other lamps.
Thinking of powder coating the brake calipers, not sure on color if I do
That's it for now. The wheels have already shown up, just waiting on the lift pieces and tires to get here tomm and tuesday. Hoping to have all the parts back from powder coat in 2 weeks and start assembling it all.

Here's the wheels. I LOVE the new chrome finish from MHT

I've been waiting on the lift pieces to show up and I finally got 90% of the kit in today. Still waiting on one box and I need to get in gear and order the Fox shocks. Though I might keep the 2.0's the RCX comes with. They're really a good shock and have a nice grey finish on them. In the meantime I installed the cab lights (factory Ford that I tinted)and I also tinted the side markers, 3rd and tails this week. I went really, really dark on them which is okay since I plan on replacing all the exterior bulbs with high powered LED's from Superbrightleds.com

The cab lights need the brightest ones I can fit in there.



Side markers:


Sorry for the crummy cell phone pic


And the suspension goodies. Decided to go ahead and put it all together using coils instead of jumping straight to the coil overs.



As soon as the last kit box and the adjustable trac bar show up Monday these parts are heading straight to the powder coater. This is the color I picked out:

Got most of the lift done tonight. I need longer u-bolts so I can put the 2" bigger block in the rear. Front shocks are way to short and holding the front end down. It should come up another inch with the correct shocks. Waiting on my painted grill shell and mirror caps. I'm gonna hold off on painting the bumpers because I dig how they go with the wheels.

I'll get better pics tomm

How difficult were the cab lights? Is the harness readily assessable and how hard was it to get the headliner down. Thinking about doing this myself. Truck is looking great. Any better pics yet? Thanks!

They are a breeze to install. Headliner does not have to come all the way down. I used a kit from Pacer and the wiring is simple.

I snapped this pic a minute ago. I've gotta give it a full detail before I shoot it with my Nikon.
