Default 2004 F150 SCAB FX$ Carolina Style build...

Just joined the forum here, and I'm pretty well through my build, so here's what she's got so far:
-Blue 2004 SCAB FX4 package, cloth seats, short bed ~99K miles
- Auto spring front level, no rear block (Carolina Squat), rear fox air shocks, rear diff cover
-35X12.5R18 Trail grapplers
-Airaid Intake,Edge Tuner, 2 1/2" true dual from cat-back to 6" dump tips
-Alpine touchscreen (backup camera wired as well), JL audio XR component speakers throughout, dynamat in all the doors, Kicker 700.5 Amp, 12" Alpine sub
- Tinted out 50 percent windshield with banner, 20 percent side two, back three limo
-Weathertech black floor liners
-Hella Grille lights, Hella black headlight housings, tinted factory fog lights, 8,000K HID lights for lows/ fogs, all lights converted to LED, LED taillights
-Power step steps by Amp Research, Viper alarm system/ remote start, UWS black low pro toolbox, Yakima Q tower roof racks w/ dakine pads, Bed Mat rug bed liner
-Has all the '09 + badging

Other than the new transmission 1,000 miles ago, I love this truck! Fun to drive, and gets compliments everywhere I go. First post here, and I hope to continue to update this build thread (A little late, I know). This truck hasn't seen any more off roading other than the field I took pictures in, incredibly clean for an '04 truck. One picture is an earlier era without roof racks/exhaust/ etc. Don't nag me about the squat, it's a preference, and it isn't changing, but tell me what you think!

I appreciate it, and the squat is subtle. It's not like most where they have a bigger lift in the front, with no block AND drop shackles in the rear.

Preciate it, and yea it doesn't squat hard. It'll do anything you ask it to.

Grey leather swap. Original cloth seats stained easily, and smelled awful after getting a little bit of water on them. Very happy with this upgrade.
