One hell of a daily driver in the making

Started out with my 2006 F150 Crew Cab short bed, with a 9" lift and some goodies inside. Well eventually I got bored from a lack of power and wanted a fresh start.



and moved on to this

Couldnt fit it into my shop so we had to let the air out of the front tires








the body damage was pretty extensive, with a lot of rust in the bed

It took a very long time to strip the entire truck.



All the air out of the front tire wasnt enough to hold the tire on the bead

I assume it's getting a '12 front end? Looks like a lot of work going into it, can't wait to see the finished product.

Always nice to be able to start over from the beginning as much as possible.
