Default My 1997 F-150 build

So this should take some of you older folk back into your youth years. I am just a 16 year old kid who originally just wanted a pickup truck for work. When I bought the truck I only owed a couple hundred bucks, so after it was payed off, I had some "extra" money, and found out about the classified ads. And so my build began. I bought the truck in October 2013, it is a 1997 (sold to me as a 1998) F-150 XLT 4x4 4.6L V8, automatic transmission with 160k miles. I started out small, then started going big when I forgot why I bought the truck. I basically turned a nice work truck into a pretty street truck. Take a look:

The day I bought it:

When you get a grille guard, you have to get some off-road lights, and I got rid of the black plastic things in the bumper, went to a scrap yard and got the lights

Got a canopy (still trying to get it repainted)
