Thank you on the truck, and yeah we are real excited about the show. It is going to be the debut of my 1963 company shop truck and my business parter's 1972 F100 patina truck so it should be cool And I am not sure what the next step will be-make it faster or lower!

Thank you very much! It has been nearly two years in the making but I'm thrilled to be driving it!

For those that are interested-this is a 1963 F100 "Wrong Bed" (the bed design is off a 58-60 F100 but Ford didn't want to retool mid year in 63 while going from a unibody truck back to a separate bed so they put this one on!) that we've done a lot to! We put a complete 2001 Crown Victoria P71 under it-full frame (no, not just the front clip!), full drive train, everything. We even cut the Crown Vic's floor and firewall out and grafted it into the F100's cab! I've got 4 wheel disk brakes, IFS, power steering, the 4.6 mod motor, 4 speed auto trans, 8.8 w/3.55s, stock four link rear end and most importantly-A/C!!! Here are a few shots of her as of this evening...


The final look!!

Don't see many people go the bagged route on Lightnings, looks good on yours. I've got an 03 Sonic Blue that I love

Thanks. The Lightning community was pretty rough on me when I first bagged it. But all in all I would do it again. Fun truck to drive inches off the ground.

Sonic blue is one of my favorite colors. Thinking of painting my notchback that color.

I think it looks killer-even like the wheels on it I was actually looking for a DSG 02-03 Harley truck but the SB Lightning popped up and I just couldn't let it go.

Awesome trucks! Can't wait to see your new truck lowered.

I'm trying to get the overall height of my truck to 5'10" for clearance purposes in parking at home and work and it seems a lot places lol. Its a 2010 Ford F150 Supercab 4x4 XLT/XTR, and I can't seem to find the one answer I was hoping to. It currently sits at 6'2 1/2" from what Ive read online and measured. I'd like to keep a nice ride (not bouncy or stiff), be able to still throw a dirt bike or something in the bed and tow a trailer if needed, sit level or a very slight rake. Also, I want it to be durable, don't want to have to replace axles, or struts in a few thousand km. How low does 3/5in setup bring the roof? Should I put bags on the back so can pump them up with a load? Or can I achieve stock or near stock capabilities with another setup?

Advice please, need some help.

Thanks Mak
