Well to start things off I purchased this truck back in October of last year and she has done a lot of sitting up until now. I bought the truck solely for the low miles, it was diesel, and she had not been mistreated. Looked like all she needed was a little TLC...change the tail lights, gets some all-weather mats etc.
With that said..after driving 60 miles back home with it the first day it was apparent the suspension was shot and need a major overhaul. Not to mention the tires were bald...err close to it.
First, the rear side steps had to go...they make the truck look very dated.
Then...the rain guards around the windows had to go...not my thing
Then she sat for a little while...did not want to drive it further than 50 miles a week.
Fast-forward another month or so... Christmas arrived and received some all-weather mats and new tail light lenses from Santa.
It may not look like it in the picture, but they made a HUGE difference. It looked like previous owner had attempted to smoke out the old tail lights in his garage and he wet-sanded them off.
Then came the big stuff....the expensive stuff...
The 4in. lift by TuffCountry was put on and it made a WORLD of difference when completed. No more DEATH-WOBBLE.
as she sits now...on 235s
....and the wheels....
17x9 Ballstic Enigma next to my Jeep. Tires are Hankook Dynapro 315s
and the kicker...when it came time to put the wheels on they didnt fit...the guy that placed the order for the wheels ordered the wrong bolt pattern... he ordered them for 99-02 Super Duty
AND they're backordered on those rims for a month...so im screwed until then. Will be working with the old bald tires and heavy old rims until then.
Next...once the jeep is sold....Exhaust..Gauge Cluster...Intake...Superchip...SFA
Any regrets? Only one...wish I had known F-250s in this year were TTB...but it works for the time being.
Will upload pics again once the NEW rims come in....
