1997 F-250 Makeover!!

Okay starting a makeover/ build thread for a buddy's truck since he is wanting to do a lot of stuff to it I figured I would post up everything we do since I will be helping with everything!! And since his is almost stock..So far we have installed gauges and a 3"downpipe but have more to come!! He has a FTE stack kit on the way
