Welp I had a build thread before but since then I stopped using the forums for a few Facebook groups instead, changed my username, found old pictures, and decided to start using the forums again since I have found extra time on my hands. My old username was HighAngeledHell, some of you may have noticed me around the forums, some not. I didnt exactly post a lot or any crazy information but I have since learned a lot about these trucks and have a lot more to contribute to the community.
In High School my dad gave me his 2001 Ford F-150 Crew Cab, I didn't get any pictures of it since I only owned it for 6 days since it got totaled. After two weeks of negotiating with the insurance company we found a great deal on an 01 F-150 XLT with 130k miles. My dad and I went down to pick it up 2 days later after test driving it. Drove perfectly.
The truck had nothing special on it except for the torsion bars fully cranked and a billet grille. I drove it around my junior and senior year and did nothing to it except added 2 12" kicker sub woofers. After I joined the Army and completed basic training I was stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. I knew I wanted another F-150 and after 6 days here and continuous searching I found a 2004 F-150 FX4 Super Crew fully loaded about 45 minutes north. I quickly contacted the dealer and scheduled a test drive. They wanted 21k for it but with help and a blank check from selling the 01 and saving, I quickly negotiated to 17.5 after taxes with lifetime maintenance.
The Morning after I bought her.
More to come.
