Default Simple,5 compressors,Frame stripped,cut in half,re-painted,& dropped 12 inches...

I have never been a huge fan of dropped trucks,or have i ever had one before..They have all been either modified to have extra HP(my SRT10),and or jacked up with either a simple body lift or all the way to a 44 inch monster(many trucks). But now that I am in a wheelchair I have tried the cars with hand controls,and trucks with a power lift seat I have to transfer into,and it picks me up,and turns into the driver side of the truck,like the 2014 Hemi ram I will post...But it didnt have enough room,and the seat was not big enough,so it was sold after only having 1200 miles put on it...
My Zl1 worked out great but it has become hard to transfer out of and up to my chair because of how low it was,and i do not want to mess up the suspension by removing the mag system....The other issue than became a huge headache was that my wheelchair didnt fit in the truck,and having to put a blanket in the backseat everytime,as well as having someone else put the chair in and out is a pain....So I only drive it if I am not going to get out or i have someone else with me to help out...

So this time I went and purchased a new 2014 FX2 Super Cab with all the bell and whistles....The idea is to installed a top of the line Air bag system..Its going to be a custom one off build...
The whole truck has gone straight from the dealer to the shop to have hand controls installed,then over to Exstensive metal works in houston...They build trucks for SEMA for ford Gm,Dodge,and other companies,and customers alike...
They have been around for yrs,and have been in Hundreds of magazines,shows etc...
This is going to be hopefully when its finished in a couple of magazines to help promote a program i am a volunteer in,where we take dogs from a rescue,and train them to be service dogs,and then donate them to disable Vets completely free of charge...
Afterwards I am going to use it for my daily Transportation needs,as well as maybe going to the track or a show or two once in awhile...The whole stock suspension is going to be removed,as are the brakes,and we are going to add about 150 to 200 hp..

This is it,a brand new 2014 FX2..the starting point...I found it in the Dallas area,and had the local dealer do a dealer trade for it,after the blue one I ordered was delayed about 2 months..

This is what I tried ,and had built a 2014 Hemi ram,but the seat was too small. Also having a 4 door there was too little room between the steering wheel,my knees and the door,and the seat when the chair picked me up,and turned in..

I stop by the dealer earlier and got ford's version of Onstar ,fords is a in real time sat tracking system that can find the truck with in one foot where .Skylink can be used anything to just check to see if its still where it was park.Where Onstar can only be active if you report it stolen to the cops,and then they can only be told it within say a 1/4 sq mile or within 50 yards and they have to see it..Skylink can point out the building its in,just in case the *** who stole it parked it in doors...
I also got fords MPP warranty covering damage to the rims,tires,windshield,and paint-less damage repair for dents..it also has a few other benifits...They wanted 2600 bucks,but after 20 mins I got both for 599....
