The f150 is improving a bit

For some reason I kind of went apeshit the last 2 weeks and have done a bit to the truck.

Tinted tails and expedition roof rack


Did my projector retrofit today


double din and 12" sub


Hellas behind the grille. But soon to be adding an LED lightbar in the bumper
(old pic obviously)


next is probably wheels, then gonna wait for the 33's to wear down a bit and get 35's or maybe 37's if I lift it by then.

What head unit is that? I'm thinking of selling my avh 3300bt to my neighbor, and that one you have there looks pretty nice.

It's the pioneer appradio. I like it. I just wanted a H/U to listen to music on my ipod, and got a great deal on it.

Nice man. I was just researching those appradios, and damn they are badass! I would have to wait for the price to come down a bit.

Truck got some new shoes







Now deciding if I want to wait till the 33's wear out some, or just suck it up and buy my lift and 35's or 37's.

I don't know if it's the wheels or roof rack. But looks very old-manish!

Exactly. I hated that chrome strip. Just need to figure out what to do with the rear bumper. I might just pony up the cash and have it professionally matched to the rest of the lower half of the truck.
