Default My 07

So I bought my first Ford truck a month ago, always been a chevy guy and thought I would try something new. I have had a couple explorers and loved them but never was impressed by anything else from Ford, loving my F150 so far.

So far I havent done a whole lot because I had the notion that I wanted to spend 15k on a truck and lift and tires ect.. but when I found this one already lifted a lot of my work was done.

Bought her with 103k miles on the ticker, only cost me 15k
2007 F-150 Lariat 5.4
6" lift (not sure of brand, was lifted when I bought her)
18'' chrome XD monsters
35'' Nitto Terra Grapplers
Volant CAI

Day I got her

Took it off road and tested out the 4x4, pretty impressed with the 4x4 and power of this beast.

I bought the truck with the chrome XD Monsters already on. Whoever had the truck before me didnt really take care of the wheels so the chrome was chipping and getting very mis-colored. So I decided to plastidip them all black since the black XD's look sick. Its only temporary until I buy some new wheels, but overall it looks good, like the flat black on the gloss
