I've been watching everyone post up pics of their trucks as they're building them and I've been building but not posting so I'm going to start from the beginning and bring my progress up to date. This is what my truck looked like stock

First thing I did to the truck was add a cat-back dybomax dual exhaust which I ended up removing because I could never get the tailpipes to look straight on the exit which really annoyed me... I replaced it with my own custom magnaflow exhaust exiting in front of the rear tire

My fiance' bought me a bull bar for christmas in 2011 so I ran that for a while.. then added two 6" offroad lights then got bored and drilled out a 3rd hole and added another.

Bought an edge evo next.. noticed a lot more throttle response and it really woke the truck up..

When I bought my truck the ford emblem was peeling and started to look like crap.. so originally I just blacked it out but I didn't really like the way it looked so I took the time to tape it off.. cut out the lettering and did a custom job

Right now current plans for the truck are

8000k HID headlights and fog lights
35'' trail grapplers
6'' suspension lift.. possibly add a 3'' body lift
E-fans

In the process of refurbishing some chrome rims I picked up for $100 .. plan to run them this winter.

Always up for suggestions or ideas
