Default My first Ford ever......Charlotte's build in progress!!

I've always been a dodge man, but after seeing how much my dad loves his Ford (also been a dodge man) I decided to bite the bullet and make my first brand new truck purchase a Ford.

Picked up my 2013 F-150 screw 4x4 with a 5.0 and 3.55's late December of 2013. This is the day i got her!!

Thank you! I'd honestly never even consider this color, but when i walked into the dealership i saw it on the lot and fell in love. It's absolutely beautiful when she's cleaned up and shiny.

I've also since then installed a magnaflow si/do with turndowns. Sounds so sweet. Next week she's going into the shop for a 6 inch rough country lift and some new shoes. 20x10 Gear Alloy big blocks with a -19 offset and 35x12.50r20 Amp M/T's. I'm so excited.

I've got these here Gear Alloy Big Blocks on the way in a 20x10 with a -19 offset. Should make her sit nice and pretty, but not too wide. I'm not a big fan of that "stupid stance" lol I originally intended on getting the Fuel mavericks in the same size, but these are nearly identical and are gloss, not flat black. Plus they are definitely easier on the wallet!
