thanks man! dont really have any major plans for it besides drive it. since the last update here ive added an edge programmer, a new set of tires and a couple other small mods but it will stay mostly stock.

thanks! ive put nearly 12,000 miles on the truck since it was finished and i couldnt be happier with it. it rides great, has plenty of power and i love the lariat interior. i coulnt even begin to estimate how many hours we have into it between my father and myself. i bought it in may and finished it in november and i was there nearly every night after work 2 or 3 hours working on it. id guess my father probably has close to 200 hours into it

I figured I would bump this thread with some updates.
This past winter I was involved in an accident on the highway, I creamed an out of control driver traveling about 40 MPH in the snow, totaled her car and smashed the front end of my truck a bit.







A few from the re-rebuild












And how she sits now all fixed and cleaned up. Note the new Leer topper I added this winter.

You did some damage man!

That Leer top looks good, a buddy of mine was going back and forth between getting a Leer and another one that i can't remember right now on his newer F-150.

Thanks! Yeah I priced out Centurys, Leer, ARE, Ranch ect. The Century and Leer were the same, they are the same company but the Leer had better options. The Ranch sucked, ARE was just ok. I love the Leer though.
