1995 F-250 Build

Well I figured it was finally time to start my build thread and post some pics of the stuff I have done to my truck. Not a whole lot, but I'm hoping to do some more mods here soon if funds allow

It's my second truck (sold first to buy this one) 1995 F250 4x4 XLT, 7.3 auto with 341k at time of purchase. It has been a construction and farm truck since day one and it isn't the prettiest but hey I say it adds character haha. Anyway here are the first pics I saw of it:

Next I put in my pillar pod and gauges, trans temp EGT's and Boost, and a 3" DP. I bought the GlowS*** ones and have regretted it since day one. I'll be ordering new ones soon that actually work. I also got my PHP chip and I love it.

Out with the pancake pipe



I cut off the old exhaust and am currently just running straight down pipe until I buy my stacks


Got new tires as well, 305/75/16 M/T:

Smoked my tail's and turn signals:



New steering wheel cover:

And got a new to me tailgate to replace the dented to hell old one(sig pic)




Those are pretty much all of the progress pic's I have right now as I am way behind on making this build. The next mod's will be a BTS valvebody for my poor trans, spray in bed liner and bedline the rockers, and stacks. My steering column is toast so I'm going to have to rebuild that soon as well.

On another note, had a fun day playing in the mud:

Thanks! Haha yeah that thing is mangled up pretty good. Well two of the three were broken when I got them and the trans temp gauge isn't very accurate, at least I don't think so anyway. They do look really cool though!

Haha yeah I cut that off a couple of weeks ago after I took my sig pic and haven't updated it, I left it on just in case and then realized I'm not going to use any of it so I cut it off.

I agree, thank you! I love it too, if I can ever afford to get it repainted I'm definitely doing the same color.
