Finally decided to post about my truck...

So I bought my truck back in July 2011, and have pretty much been lurking on this Forum and a few others since. Finally decided to post up some pics and some info about her.

The truck was bought as a completely stock 2008 F250 with a 6.4 Powerstroke, 4WD. Had 59k miles when I brought her home. King Ranch with quad buckets.

Current mods completed since purchase:
-Pioneer AVIC-X930BT Headunit
- Pioneer TS-G6844R 6x8s Infinity Kappa 682.9cf 6x8s all the way around
-Rockford Fosgate R500-1 amp
-Kenwood KFC-WS12 12" subwoofer
-CAC pipe (~60k miles)
-CCV filter (~60k miles)
-DPF/DOC deleted 5" Diamond Eye straight pipe; stock tip welded on for stealth look (~68k miles)
-SPARTANIZED 300LL daily driven (~68k miles)
-Flo-Pro EGR delete (~70k miles)
-Diamond Eye Down Pipe (Complete ~75k miles)
-AFE Intercooler (Complete ~76k miles)
-AirdogII 165 (Complete ~76k miles)
-Titanium Header wrapped downpipe and Turbo Socks (Complete ~77k miles)
-2.5" Ready Lift Leveling Kit (~82k miles)
-4" PMF Stage 3 Traction Blocks (~82k miles)
-Sinister Coolant Filter (Complete ~91k miles)

Planned soon:
-DieselSite Transmission Filter
-Amsoil Oil Bypass filter

Eventually:
-37" tires
-ARP Studs & Elite ported fuel rails
-Elite 71mm Atmo
-6.0 exhaust manifolds/up-pipes with wastegate
-SADP 6.4 Fuel Bowl Delete
-RCD torque converter
-Billet input/intermediate shafts

So here is my truck the day I brought her home


After some good window tint and a toolbox


Can still fit the bike in the bed with the toolbox


Put in an amp and a sub




Installed a new CAC pipe


Any comments or advice are always welcome!

Welcome! Don't be afraid to post up on what's on your mind on the site that's why it's here. I like the truck. So are the 6 x 8 speakers the factory size or did you have to modify the door?

The 6x8s are the factory size....I was amazed with the amount of improvement by replacing them. I put in some 6.5s in the front door (had to drill some new holes) and they sound great. Off topic, sorry....

Ya 6x8s are factory. The back story on this truck is a bit strange and I'm still piecing it together, but I got a great deal on the truck, so whatever. Anyway, when I got the truck there were no rear speakers and the front 2 were pretty well blown. I actually got some real cheap ones because I couldn't afford to get the ones I wanted at the time, but these turned out to be awesome. They are the Pioneer TS-A6874R. got all 4 speakers for $107 shipped to my door.

Oh, and i did forget to mention, with the new sub and speakers, the doors rattled like crazy! Added cheap man's dynamat (Peel&Seal) to the front doors and the rear pillars and it made a huge difference. I still need to do the rear doors and possibly spray some Quiet Kote (basically rubber in a can) in the doors to dampen the outer door skins and she should be super quiet.

Something I do recommend for EVERY truck (and I will be helping my dad do this on his 2012 EcoBoost F150 soon), latex tubing in the door seals. I now have no wind noise, and I actually can hardly hear my engine at idle or cruising down the highway now!

Got my blackstone report in today. (They labeled it incorrectly as a 6.0, but I have emailed them to correct his). Keep in mind this was on dino from the dealership and I had only deleted the DPF/DOC in late January. The EGRs didn't get deleted until late February. Any ideas why my sodium and aluminum levels are high? And should I be concerned?
