Default My 08 XLT Progression Thread..AKA Bruzers Build

Okay so I figured I would do one of these for my truck because it has come a long way, in my head anyways haha.

A bit of back story: Bought the truck September 2009 with 9,800 miles on it. Bone stock, found it was actually repossessed from the original owner who lived in Kansas. Truck was bought at auction by my Ford dealer and brought up to Alaska. I purchased it for $24,600.

The night before I got it home (cell phone shot)


Got it home


Then the first thing I did was a bull bar, some driving lights and some visors. Then after the first snow, I realized just how bad the OEM tires where and bought some BFG's. Also had a leveling kit put in when I got the tires mounted. Also got a black locking gas cap.



Then I got a sound system put in..no pics of that unfortunately. Also put on a Keyless entry button pad thingy.

After that I decided I needed some different wheels, I hated the chrome look, much to hard to keep clean and where just ugly. Got some different OEM wheels from a guy up here for $200. Also had to get rid of the horribly cheap plastic running boards and get some metal ones.




then next was some 5100's, full undercoating, bed liner, black headlights, Harley tails, smoked LED third brake light and 30ish percent tint on the front windows.



Also had the dump idea of the chrome mirror caps and chrome grille cover...hated them....ended up getting tow mirrors...

After that I got a Flowmaster Force II exhaust and some tail light guards for Christmas!


Next came a Saleen Grille. MUCH Better!



Then I got some 17x9 XD Addicts with +18 offset, didn't want them to stick out too far and an Undercover tonneau cover.

Then yesterday for my birthday (22nd) I got some 09 Badges and a Pioneer X4500BT Head unit. Plasti dipped them and put them on the truck!









My next project is to plastidip the grill surround, the bumpers and get some fender flares and plastidip them and my rocker panels.

Took some pictures on my way home today, figured you can never post too many pictures. Also got more Plastidip so I can finish my project.

The back 3 have stock tint and the front 2 have 30% or so. I would love to go darker but can't because of the laws up here, they are pretty harsh about it.
