Slow College Build

inherited my fathers 7.3 F250. great truck looks like the day it came off the dealers lot. interior is pristine and aside from the bed, the exterior is emaculate. When my father passed away in February my mother wanted to sell the truck and split the money between my brother, sister and myself. i wouldnt have it leave the family and i was the one who would keep it despite being the youngest. it started out completely stock other than the K&N intake and Snugtop camper shell.

here it is the way he left it to me.



i got to work after a few months so far I've got a MBRP exhaust, AFE intake and intake manifold, a chip and a set of pillar gauges. on the outside ive installed a billet grille and removed the snug top. also did a full spray in bed liner and threw a transfer flow 40 gal. tank toolbox combo in the back.

well made a trip down to westminster colorado today to go by the 4 wheel parts store there. put money down on a set of procomp 315/75 r16 xtreme all terrains, some new wheels and a procomp leveling kit. get to make the trip back down there again next wednesday for them to install everything. also have a set of recon projector headlights in the mail. missed the UPS guy today so hopefully ill be home tomorrow when he comes by.

A set of 08 tow mirrors would look real good on that. And a heavy duty bumper would be sweet. Nice rig tho.

08 mirrors do look nice.

i like my pro comp leveling kit.
did you order the kit that comes with replacement springs? if so you will need longer shocks in the front.

yeah i ordered the basically stage 2 level with the replacement springs and es9000 shocks rather than the es3000 ones. been thinking about the 08 mirrors, definitely something later on down the line!

Let me know how those headlights work for you. I think they look good but haven't heard very good things about them.

They install Tha same way you take factorys out. Kinda hard to explain. I'm running the same style lights. A vise would help with cranking out adjustments.
