Default My 2006 FX4 Flareside Build.

When I first bought the truck, at the dealership. It obviously already had a 2" level. wheels and tires, and dual exhaust. And look at all the fake nasty chrome! Only had 57,500 miles and the deal with my trade in was right so I took her home.

Took all the chrome off, found a factory grille that matched my truck on ebay for $50. I added an "add a leaf" because my rear was lower than my front, and I hate that.

I'm installing a Hellbent steel 2.5" level this spring (tires rub a little with the 2") and buying a bull bar, and new muffler. Not going to go extreme on the build since I have 4 cars I like to tinker with.

Just ordered a Hellbent Steel 2.5" level. My tires rub a little now, so hopefully that helps. Next pay I plan on ordering a bull bar or headlights.

I just ordered my bull bar last night. Black with a stainless skid plate. I think it will compliment my wheels. Pics to be posted once it is installed.

Well I failed inspection today. Passenger side CV Axle is shot, and I need new upper and lower ball joints on both sides. So I made an order on PartsGeek.com. new CV axle, lower ball joints and upper ball joints with new control arms. $285.95 to my door. Going to have the garage install my HBS 2.5" level while they have everything tore apart. Pics when all done.
