Dan-O-Lantern V2 - Build Thread!

Well, most people from this section don't know me, the 6.0 guys know me well. I figured out after two head jobs that the only way to fix my 6.0 was with a 6.7.

The wife and I picked up the new truck Saturday, 2016 F250 with everything I wanted and nothing I didn't. As much as I wanted a Platinum, anyone who knows me on here know how my trucks get used; I don't have the heart to do that to a truck that nice nor the budget anyway so it all worked out, lol. My only "must haves" were:

-Crew Cab
-Short Bed
-6.7 Powerstroke
-4x4
-XLT with Center Console
-3.55 rear end with Factory E-Locker

This truck is equipped with all of the above and a bonus back-up camera in the rear view mirror. This one will remain substantially more stock than my 2006 as I opted for the 8 year, 100K warranty on purchase but I'll have a 4.5" Carli Lift, Snug Top and Bumper in the works shortly!

So it begins...





So begins the build:

If my current mood is any indication of the road ahead, I'm in agreement. She's stock as a rock and I'm grinning ear to ear every-time I get behind the wheel.

It's not like I have a history of modifying vehicles!

Sad to see the other one go, but peace of mind is worth it.....especially how you drive your truck

Just out of curiosity since I know what you were trying to sell it for, what'd they give you for trade-in on the 6.0?

PM'd you. Just got off the phone with Johnny and got my bumper in the works. Should be cool, I think it's his first one with fog lights designed around the Baja Designs Pro XL.
