Owned for one year now, here is what I've done - 08 F250

So just passed the one year mark and had to pay to renew my stupid license plates right before Christmas (and swap back to my stock exhaust to pass emmissions). Done a lot of fun stuff to the truck and figured I'd share.

2008 F250 4 door, long bed - Blue - around 106k miles (job 1)
*6" lift, 35x13.5 Procomp extreme tires with chrom Moto wheels (purchased truck like this)
*Amp research auto steps
*auto start
*Spartan dash daq tuner, running 300 tune, S&B air filter, DPF/Cat delete
*Rhino bed liner and tri fold soft cover tanneau
*Billet grill inserts, tinted windows, window visors
*JVC Arsenal DVD player, Rockford 10" slim sub behind right rear seat with MTX 500 watt amp. back up camera. About to install some Alpine Type R 6.5" component speakers and mount the tweeters on the dash with an Alpine 4 channel amp in the next 2 weeks. (already have it wired to go)
*Tork lift camper tie downs for slide in camper I have
*repairs so far: new radiator hose and coolant, 2 new batteries, driver side wheel hub, oil change, alignment, rotate tires

*future plans: custom gun mount under the dash, dynamat for doors, bed lights hooked up the upfitter switches I have yet to utilize, and get the vacuum seals on my hubs fixed so the dash 4x4 works without locking the hubs. push button ignition.

Been a good year for the truck!!

Sounds good bud. When you come up with a custom gun mount under the dash please share. I have been wanting to come up with some kind of gun mount for the truck.

I went on Ebay and got a soft case holster with a belt clip on it. The gun will be in the upright forward position in the nook right above and to the right of the gas pedal so I can just easily grab the handle, undo the snap and pull it out in an easy motion. A friend of mine will be helping with it and I'm just waiting for a nice weekend day to get it done. Its snow and NFL playoff weekend now so maybe a few more weeks depending on weather. I'll post how we did it once finished.

here is the grill. I'll follow up with more. I also have a punisher logo that will be going over the ford emblem once it gets nice out.

I have an Avatal auto start. It is set for a delay to let the glow plugs warm up before starting the engine. It sure is nice for winter.

Nice Biggredd, I just picked my 08 f250 crewcab up this Xmas too! I hope to add a dpf delete and spartan tuner soon. I removed my runni g boards add added nerf bars. Slowly but surely it will all get done. Great job!
