Default 1999 xlt build thread

This is my very first thread. Let me start off by saying I am an 18 year old ford factory worker. I currently work at the Louisville assembly plant where we build Lincoln mkc's and ford escapes. I just bought my first truck not too long ago. The truck is a 1999 f150 4x4 4.6 v8.

Heres the truck when i bought it.

Next to come was quite an expensive aspect of the build which was wheels and tires. I decided with some 17x9 kmc rockstars machined on a set of 285-75r17 nitto trail grapplers

Those look good! Since I am almost ready to buy some, what is the offset you got, and do you have any pics from front or rear?


thanks

Finally got some new headlights. I ended up buying the svt lightning style black headlights. They look pretty good IMO.
