Default 2006 F-250 King Ranch build

I bought this truck on 11/30/16 thinking I was going to keep it stock, but only two weeks in I've already started modding it with more on the way lol. Anyway, it's just your standard 2006 F-250 King Ranch 6.0L FX4 crew cab short bed with 160k miles, bought completely stock.








12-01-16: Wired up the high idle to AUX 4

12-14-16: Installed 2 4" CREE LED lights on the rear bumper wire to AUX 3

I like the truck but those lights look terrible on top of the bumper.

Maybe try mounting the lights under the bumper. I think you will find the current spot to get annoying when you try to step up in your bed with the tailgate down.

I tried them under the bumper but they sat too low for my liking. I had big spot lights in this location on my F-150 so I'm already used to them in this location and it all works out for me.

Nice truck! If you havent already.. I'd start looking into an EGR delete and bulletproofing it.

It's in the works lol, it's hard finding a good stopping point because my train of thought is while pieces of the engine are off, might as well do more stuff so my current list extends to about $4,000 just in parts.

Blue spring kit has been installed, all O-rings changed and used the new housing. I personally don't feel or hear a difference, but if $80 will save my injectors I'm all for it!
