I know man. here's what I'd do a little bit different and it would would just as mean if not meaner. I'd take a 1965 427 Shelby A/C Cobra Replica side pipe exhaust system and black it completely. that would be killer I think. To get a better idea of what I'm talking about here's a link: www.factoryfive.com/chalhome.html . take a close look at the exhaust pictured and think about what that would look like on that truck completely blacked out.

I agree! The wheels make that truck.

i think he wanted 17,500 for the truck with the wheels if i am not mistaken. I Personally just dont like the look of 22's.. besides, i do want to be able to use the 4wd if i need to haha.. And having 22's, i dont think the 4wd will be very usefull..

i think a set of 18" rims(possibly monsters) on some 35" KM2's, will look really good, but thats just me

4wd will work fine with 22s. only time those 22s would suck is hitting a curb or running some trail. which i am not sure why you ever would with an f150.

Why would 22s make the 4x4 any less useful? Yes it gives you less sidewall but you don't buy a truck that nice to go beat it up offroad anyway. Thats when you get a POS beater to pull around with the nice truck lol

I would go at least 20s if your going to keep the monsters, anything less than that is too small for that rim.

Yeah....there was like 4 different bed lengths on those trucks....3 different options on the x-cab. This one happens to be the shortest bed and chassis that's the same as the Raptor.

I think you're right. I think I put a 4' there on the count because to me, the 5.5 looks like a 4' on any cab. lol. Then again, I read somewhere the Raptor bed size is specific to the raptor so that may be toying with my mind too. lol.

It might as well could be. I know the bed sides are stretched/wider something like that.

i like the 5.5' bed on extended cab or super crew trucks.

a 6.5' bed or 8 should never be on a supercrew IMO.

and an 8foot shouldnt be on an extended cab.

I am just not a fan of the big long stretched out look.
