My Truck

I've posted a few pics in a 6.0L discussion, but everyone may not of seen it.. So I will tell the whole story.

I am 19 years old right now, almost 20. When I was a senior in high school, I bought a 1999 Ford F-350 Lariat V-10. Put an 8in. Suspension and 38 Baja Claws on in.



After Graduation, I put another 5in lift on the truck, and kept the 38s



When the 38s started to get bald, I looked into getting new tires for it, and I could get 46s for 100 bucks more than I could get new 38s for, so another 3in of lift and 46s got put on the truck..




Well, Ever since I bought my V-10 Ive wanted a Diesel, so April 1st I picked up my new truck and swapped the lift..

heres my new truck stock.. 2004 Ford F-350 XLT 6.0L Diesel



And how shes sitting now..





















AND THE OLD TRUCK~FOR SALE~




HOPE YOU ALL LIKE THE PICS~

I have no idea.. I havent plated the diesel yet, waiting to sell the V-10, the V-10 was getting like 6-8mpg with the 46's.

My dad has a 7.3L and on highway gets 16mpg with 24in of lift and 49s.

YOU TURN THE STEERING WHEEL..

My truck tires rub on sharp turns but only on the leaf springs cause tires are so wide, under regular driving I doesnt rub only sharp corner
