Default SDDesigns 2018 SCrew XLT 4X4 5.0

Finally, after nearly 40 years I'm back in an F150, my first was a 1979 F150 White Flareside with 351 Auto.

Here is the day I picked it up at the dealer. I was originally looking for an XL as basic as you could get, but as we all know it would have to have been specially ordered, cause dealers need options to make money. So this fit the bill as close as I could get without an order.

So here is the website I set up for my progress, this will always be a "Work in Progress" as with most of us!

Whitey Ford is my name!

The Husky Wheel well Liners and the DeeZee tailgate assist shock were easy installs.

Doing the A.S.S. wire jumper was almost an immediate mod that needed to be addressed.
Black with Purple stripe and the White wires

The Rubber Stall mat was needed to keep the stuff put in the bed with the rugged liner from sliding all over the bed.



Was pretty tough to cut without the help of a circular saw.

The first LED upgrade were the taillights, third brake light / bed lamp and the license plate lights.

Thanks!

Blackout matte finishes everywhere......Blackout lower belt, black Raptor rear bumper with Borla ATAK dual rear with black tips, front black bumper, black Lariat grill, blackout headlights, blackout taillights.

The bed is getting a cap this weekend, still up in the air about its blackout treatments ATM.

Haven't decided on the lift yet, maybe just the Bilsteins 2" level to start with Falken Wildpeak AT3's for this coming winter.

My web page has my items completed and to-do list, I'll be updating part numbers and picture links eventually.

Always a "Work in Progress"
