KingRanch4Life Build Thread!!
 
It's been long over due so I figured i'd get started and take you guys through my journey. My first 2007 King Ranch was white. Outfitted with the following:

Pioneer Avic- Z110BT navigation
JL Audio componets
OEM 6.5 sub
325/50/22 Kumho Road Venture
(Truck came lifted from FORD.. Don't know what type and I did not see any change in suspension or a rear block)
Gas Mileage: I hand calculated a few tanks and it was a consistent 14.9.... Even with those HUGE tires

Before I could get pleasure out of it, it was wrecked and totaled by my significant other. The truck only had 21,000 miles or so... This was a few years ago..

Vehicle was wrecked while I was on one of my many tours to Iraq... Everyone was okay... Truck was totaled... During this whole ordeal... The tow company THOUGHT they'd start removing stuff from my truck for themselves and their COP friend was going to assist them in doing so... However.... One call to USAA and they sent another cop out there and a tow truck and carried the truck to another secure location...

Insurance company took care of me 100%.... Had every opportunity to buy a 2010... I had no interests in a newer vehicle... I searched for a year and found another 2007 King Ranch.... This time in Black...

They were going to remove the seats.... They also were laying claim to the aftermarket stereo equipment telling my wife and the installer that the truck was their property and we no longer had access to it...


You're welcome!!

Awesome build thread, so far! Glad you were finally able to make one of these threads. Although, we don't know what your new black King Ranch looks like (:whistling2:). BTW, I remember seeing that white truck a while ago in the, "F150 Photos," part of the forum. Talk about, "back in the day," haha. Nice truck(s)! :cool:

Looks nice! Hope you get that emblem, haha. :confused1:

You should do the HD headlights! The black grill will balance it out
