Default F150skidoo's money pit (build thread)

So after a bunch of members PM me about my mods and some other saying i should do a build thread form seeing some of my pictures i finally decided to do one.

So this is when i picked up my baby, A 2008 F150 XLT Supercab 4x4 4.6 V8 with 3:55 non LS diff.

My second mod was adding a 2" AutoSpring leveling kit. The leveling kit was one of my mods that changed the appearance the most.

My third mod was adding rims and tires. I've got 18" Pro Comp 7032 flat black rims wrapped in 295/65/18 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs.

After a bunch of people complaining that my truck needed running boards because it sat up to high, I decided to add them 3" black Westin nerf bars.

Since my truck never came with a factory hitch i added a Draw-Tite class 3 hitch and a Draw-Tite timed brake controller. Last pic is of my dads work trailer also used as my snowmobile trailer.

Up here in the great white north running snow tires is a good idea for winter driving conditions. So i picked up a set of raptor rims and put them on 285/70/17 Toyo gsi 5 snow tires.

After seeing alot of members PTMing there mirror caps and grille surround i decided to do the same.

I ended up not doing the grille surround and just did the mirror caps to see how well the hold up before painting the surround.

For Christmas i got my Saleen grille. I find it makes the truck look more aggresive, it even looks decent with the chrome surround but will look better when it gets PTM'd.

Badass looking truck! How much did that tire/rim combo run you?
