New guy from AL

Hey everyone-Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new to the Ford and Diesel world, coming from having a 99 Yukon then an 02 Tahoe Z71. I used to run a site like this one for Z71 Tahoes, but it fell apart once I got rid of my car. Anyways, I just purchased a 2006 F250 Lariat, although it is just a 2wd (4 would have been nice). I'm down here in Mobile, AL, but I travel to Louisiana almost every weekend to fish (I'm also originally from Baton Rouge). Once I can get some pictures, I'll post them up, but maybe not until I get a few mods done . So far, it has a Rhino liner, gooseneck hitch, and some painted mirror caps, toolbox, and mounted ice chest in the bed. Also, if anyone knows of a 2-4" lift for this model, please let me know. I'd like to get her up to FX4 height. Every lift I've come across is for the 4wd, and I'm not quite sure of the suspension differences between the two. Also, if you're on the gulf coast, love to fish, and want to help get my forum website up and going, visit www.fishgulfcoast.com and give me some suggestions, Thanks a bunch, Alec

Thanks everyone-

Stump,
So far I have locked the ice chest to the toolbox using Master Lock cable. I'm still looking for ways to permanently install it.

When I was first about to buy the truck, I thought the original owner was going to take the toolbox too. I almost wish he would have, because the ice chest was supposed to go in that spot. My best idea--I was going to mount it backwards, so you could open the rear window and reach in for a drink

If your lariat has captains chairs and center console, you can install a drain plug in the bottom of the console and it will hold alot of beer and ice! :wink2:
Don't ask me how i know...

Oh, and
