Out of a 250 and into a 350 DRW

I finally took the plunge and decided to build myself a dually. I've put it off for a couple years and after buying a new trailer (32' enclosed) I knew it was time to make the jump. So I scored a '14 Lariat, Pearl white FX4 with all the goods.

Mods had already started with this pic.
Painted fender badges, debadged (FX4 sticker will come off later) HID's in the head lamps and fogs and I swapped the painted grill surround and 2wd air dam from my '11.



Here she's getting the AMP research power steps, and we tinted all the lights.


I'm wanting this one to be a little over the top, but w/out some of the craziness you see on trucks at SEMA etc. So with that said, here's the run down

8" Rough Country lift. 4 link conversion. The suspension pieces are already at the powder coater getting stripped and prepped for this color


The axles and some misc suspension pieces that are not being coated are being prepped for some flat black paint.

Rest of the goods:
24" American Force "Liberty" wheels in black w/chrome spikes
38x13.50x24 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Exploration Outfitters LED bars
2-50" dual rows on the roof mounted with a Off Road LED Bars mount
Here's the mount. It will be painted to match/

1-40" dual row mount in the grill behind a Smittybilt M1 grill
1-20" dual mounted between the tow hooks

I will probably have the light housings powdercoated to match the suspension parts.

Painted to match bumpers
Recon lighted fender badges
MBRP black exhaust tip
F450 front fender flares and bumper extensions
Blue LED's in the fender wells and other places (For shows and demo's here at the store)

Interior:
Leaving the stock Nav and Sony system in place and adding a few goods to it.
JL Audio 10" subs in a custom enclosure under the rear seat
Audio Control LC8I and JL Audio XD1000/1 amp

Goal is to have it on the ground at the end of next week after I get the wheels in from American Force and for the sub/amp box to be done the week after turkey day.

Sounds like it'll be sharp. Is your trailer a bumper pull or GN?

I don't need it, I just want it.

I want to build something that you just don't see around here (OKC)

Fair enough. It sure will stand out, definitely something worthy of SEMA.

Thanks man. Don't know if it will be SEMA worthy or not, but that would be cool as a fan Would be cool for it to show up in a magazine or two though.

More parts coming in.

Picked up my tires from Wheel Pros this morning. Also got confirmation that my OLB roof mount shipped Sat, and I should see all the LED bar's today.
