just like any other truck there are specific models and styles of that year you like and dont like. i dont like them in chrome but painted I like. But that is so minor I dont really care. haha. Take a truck like that in black, with some 22s and maybe 37s or 40s on 8" of lift. that would be fun. :)

You got a TIG machine now beard? Or just know someone with one? I TIG'ed for the first time ever last week. It's way more fun and way cleaner the MIG... but way slower. I'm excited to start learning that now.

Same here. It is overwhelming in chrome, but looks fine painted. Either way, if that is really the only thing to complain about with the new super duty, I'm okay with it. I would love to have one!

No I dont have a Tig machine, but my buddy that lives 3 miles away has a nice Miller Tig.

No need to get excited over the shroud. its no where near the right size. no progress this weekend! :(

I talked to the guy and he said it was made that size for a reason so i mounted it up. Still missing the tabs but its where it sits. Should take too much to get some hoses on it and permanently mounted

I got this in the mail while I was on vacation...

2006 Superduty front driveshaft. I am going to retube it in the lathe and weld in a longer piece of DOM and use it for the rear driveshaft. Then order another one and make it longer and use it for the front.
