2004 King Ranch Build

I'm on the site a lot but never post anything, Thought I would share the progression of my truck.

When I was looking for a truck I knew I wanted a 7.3/6.0. Also had to be 4 door short bed.

I realized I was probably going to end up with a 6.0. From dealing with superdutys at work, I knew that getting one that was already bulletproofed would be a good idea.

Searched for a while and bought this guy...






Truck already had arp studs ,gaskets, egr delete, oil cooler,4 inch straight pipe exhaust, new ficm, and receipts for all the work...jackpot!!

3 months later a 4 inch lift and a set of wheels showed up at my door.

Fuel Hostage 20x12

Some how got a set of tires to hold me off for a couple months for 80 bucks!!




Installing the lift was fun




Couple months later, bit the bullet and bought new tires.



New tires rubbed really bad. So another 1.5 inchs of lift went on

Window tint up front


Christmas 2013 I did new headlights, cablight, hids, and grill







Remember when I said this truck was already bulletproofed. Well I guess some redneck and his brother did it in some janky garage. Probably didn't machine the heads...who the f@@k knows, but coolant starts puking out of the cap.....YES!!!
I don't have a lift so I had to pay to get it done...right!
One of my good friends is a diesel tech at craven performance. He bulletproofs 6.0's every week and they offer a lifetime warranty. Nice to have someone to trust if im gunna pay someone to work on my sh!t.




Put a coolant filter on

I also have a sct tuner but selling to upgrade to the innovative diesels livewire ts so I can monitor.

That about does it...for now
