Default Nomination: Carabidae

Year: 2009

Model: F-150 XLT 5.4 Triton

Mileage: 60K +

Options: 'Earth Metallic'

Mods/Custom Work: | 6" Fabtech Lift | 20x12 Moto Metal MO962 Black Satin with a -44 offset | 35/13.5 Mickey Thompson ATZ | Raptor/HD Head and Tail lights | Smittybilt Custom Made Bed Cover | Bushwhacker Extend-a-Fender on Order | Bestop Power Running Boards | 3M Solar protection 30% Tint |

Description: Very tasteful colour conbinations while still retaining the spirit of the chromed XLT.. against the Earth Metallic the outcome is stunning. The tires/wheel and lift are one of the best looking combos I have seen anywhere.

Why did you Nominate this truck: Used as a daily driver and weekend warrior, the mix of utility and purpose has found just the right balance. With a 4.56 back end, further suspension upgrades and some intake work on the horizon, the final mechanical modifications on the initial build will have been taken.

What I especially like about it is that while it has been done up, it has not become a street queen.. Carabidae drives it into the desert, into the trails and soon deep into the dunes. It has not been morphed into a testosterone-laden alien raptor either. It remains very much a Ford truck, with stock elements binding it together visually, honestly.

Congrats to my friend in Kuwait.

Very nice truck misterb-fx4. That was a great colour.

I've just ordered one in Kodiak brown with the 373 E-Locker rear end... can hardly wait another frigging week for it.
