Showcase cover image for Bessie, I didn't pick it..but it works

General Information

White top / Grey bottom
A work in progress.....
2005 F250 Lariat (White top / Grey bottom)


6.0 with a few mods, I'll do a breakdown soon
Katzkin factory matched Grey Leather perfed with seat heaters. Looks like and smells like a brand new truck.

Replaced the lower cig lighter with a USB / Audio jack plug. Because drilling another hole is stuuupid.

New window tint (LLumar) only the best for Bessie.

Added the 4 switch upfitter switch panel for the light bar front, LED rear, and the soon to come rock lighting and side lights.
Trying to keep it (appearing) stock. All lights replaced with new. Headlights, Third Brake Light / Bed Light, and Tail Lights. All bulbs replaced with Sirius LED's. They are Holy$%#@ bright. I did have to get a four pack of resistors for the blinkers. Even though Sirius LED's claimed they had them built in. Also added a cheap $30 20" light bar to replace the snake eyes fog lights. Also Holy$%^# bright. Made the factory brackets work for this...because it was a challenge and there's no way I was going to let it beat me. Say what you want it's been on the truck for six months and run through a car wash on the regular and no condensation.

Roll and Lock from 2005...still works and doesn't look terrible...not great, but not terrible.

2019 Ford Explorer middle row seating in the bed of the truck for the beach and bonfires. (Find a dealer fleet department that does cop cars) They literally toss them when they do a K9 package in them.

6" Square CREE Led spotlight rear facing anti-tailgating light. Also lights up the woods for backing up and the trail behind ya.
Only because there is no where else to put this...Viper 2 way remote start alarm system.

A whelen 200W PA speaker with the horn module because I think air horns are old news. Plus it's a lot more fun to see that EFFING Prius driver (be honest we all hate em') breaking his neck to see where it came from. Tied to the steering wheel with a kill switch so the regular horn honks too.

Pioneer 4500 head unit, 2 sets of Boston Acoustics Pro series 6.5" separates and titanium tweeters with custom built (by me) passive crossovers and mounting plates on a 200.4 Amp with an Infinity BassLink DClass 200W 10" with dual 10" passive radiators...So far everyone that hears it says it's clean and incredibly loud. Road noise? What's that? 30+ years in audio make a difference I suppose.
Full brake replacement New rotors, Calipers and Pads

Stock for now.... Thinking Pro Comp stage II 6" with Traction Bars
Wheel and Tire
Stock for now.... Thinking 20X9's with 35X20X12.5
