Been a while since I posted to this. Changed up the color scheme, looks a lot more like an FX4 now, I'm incredibly pleased with how it turned out. Also threw some cab length nfab steps on
Sitting at 60k miles now, I followed Ford's timeline and replaced the fuel filter. I'm so glad I did, that thing was NASTY. Recommending to anyone who has bought their truck used, replacing the FF should be first on the to-do list, because it looks like the previous owners never touched my truck's FF
Here's a shot of filter cut open
Even more disturbing is the color of the "fuel" that came out of it
Now I got some change in my pocket, plans for the winter are new wheels, tires, lift kit, and SCT X4.
Currently eyeing some 18x9 -12 gear alloy big blocks in black, wrapped in 295/70r18 Courser MXTs. Really would like some 35s, but with 3.55 gears, 295/70r18 (34.25"x12") seems like a pretty good compromise to me. Would love to try the regear myself, since I have access to a hydraulic press for the bearings, but I'm sure I'd mess something up bad
