First Ford..

New here from SoCal. My name is Mike, I live in San Diego. just recently purchased my first PSD. I've been desert racing since i was 13 and have worked in the off road industry for a while. my truck is an 02 F350 Fx-4 long bed. had the truck only a week before i lifted it LoL, DIY intake and i believe a hypertech chip(i'm not sure cuz i found the box to one in the glove box but it was never mentioned when i bought the truck) just put the 07 grille on and the light bar, o and 35inch yokohama at's with 17inch american racing teflon coated Mojave's. took a quick cell phone shot. let me know what you think..

nice pic of your rig. i see from the emblem on the door, you are packing the 7.3L, you take care of it, that engine will out live you......

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Thanks for the kind words guys! I raced, 5/1600, and have chased for 1-2/1600, 12, 7 and, TT. in the score series and 1450 trucks in the MDR and BITD. I am in the process of finishing my 1450 truck, and aquiring the sponsors right now.

I purchased this truck with the intent of it running for ever. From what everyone had told me the 7.3 is a true work horse! and so far it has done nothing but amaze me. the only thing that hasnt proven it's self is the 4wd only because i havent had a chance to use it lol
