Mods/Custom Work: just blacked out the wheels and grille, color matched badges/handles, and added a lower 2 tone (some of the pictures show the truck before these changes were made)

My faithful old workhorse, just a basic '04 XL withe 120K on the clock.

definitely not afraid to scratch the bed liner.... she's bottomed out on gravel and concrete countless times, hauled crumbling dusty bricks, scrap metal and other recycling, road salt and more inside the cab, but here's the pictures i still have, some of the nicer shots from her glory days - hauling firewood (a favorite pastime of mine), one of my boats, helping an uncle move, and a dump run.

Might as well put mine in here.
1995 f150 centurion 5.8l 4x4
Started life as a single cab truck and was converted into a crew cab by centurion.
Mods: Custom led headlights, custom led tail lights, custom grille, custom hood, 2015 f150 front bumper, custom rear bumper, monster hook, 22x10 rims, 2016 f150 fender flares, custom painted cab light, Lund backdraft, 2014 f150 center console, custom switch pod in headliner, black wood grain wrapped interior trim, a bunch of ptm and blacked out pieces, toolbox full of everything to get a days work completed and of course a b&w gooseneck hitch. Just because it's used for farm work doesn't mean it can't look good doing it.

Added more pics as requested I know some aren't doing work truck things so delete if necessary. This truck changes so much in appearance that no two pictures it looks the same.

I'll be selling this truck in the near future, so she's not exactly packed for a road trip.
Even w the ladder rack, she fits in a 7'0" parking garage. And the glass in the rear doors is incredibly helpful when backing up. I had a truck w a tailgate once and will never go back, double doors are the best!
Window door opens for side access and provides that all important over the shoulder view out the back.
Side tool box is a dream and still i have room to travel w a mountain bike

Oh why not.
1990 Xlt lariat
Pride of central Louisiana? Probably not.
New engine
Rebuilt trans/transfer case
Rebuilt rear axle
Awaiting parts to rebuild the front
It's not the prettiest but it does everything I need it to and has never left me stranded.

Default May 2017 Truck of the Month!

Some very nice machines were nominated this month but I narrowed it down to the ones that I felt embodied the term "work truck" the best. If you don't see your truck, nominate yourself next month!

Going forward, I'll try to keep the voted upon contestant pool to about 4-5 max per month.

Vote on and good luck!
