Figured I'd go ahead and make one of these since I post over here more often now. Well I bought the truck around a year and a half ago after selling my 97 f150 2wd Reg Cab Xl. Needed or should I say wanted more room in the cab, 4x4 and Pw/Pd. So needless to say I got this beauty and have loved every minute of owning her. It's a 98 f150 4x4 XLT fully loaded with every option for the year except leather. I'm going to try and get all the mods listed in order. Without further ado pics!
What she looked like the Day I brought her home. Paint needed some love and the exhaust needed some help. (Exhaust was rusted through and had broke welds)
So of course the first thing I did was replaced the Air filter
, Wiper Blades, Changed the oil, Changed the front and rear diff fluid, and changed the transfer case fluid.I had to replace the gauge cluster light bulbs and lens as well. We all know the important things done are the ones you can't see.
So first exterior things I did was remove the steps and the tool box. Also put on a little stubby antenna I won from truck of the month on another forum with my old truck and painted the frame black with rustoleum Traded the toolbox that came on it for the black one I got now.
Next I ordered some black Lightning style headlights, Depo Fogs, and some raptor style leds. I also got tired of my trucks paint, clean, still looking dull. So I ordered Meguiars Paint Restoration kit and added Meg's Ultimate Polish to go with the kit and got to work. It removed all the nasty swirl marks and light scratches and just made my paint pop. Still a year and a half later there are no swirl marks or scratches. After the kit:
