Christmas came early...New Truck

Well guys, I needed a new truck for DD duty and to haul the bike/car around. One of mom's friends owns a dealership where we buy all of our vehicles from. Called him up and this is what he had...I jumped on it.

2006 F150 Ext Cab
Lariat
20s
Tow Package
4x4
etc

I know I usually post clean pics but it is cold and drizzly here. All this is getting is a HBS leveling kit and bigger tires as it is my DD.

Ohh...and the bike is done, just waiting on exhaust to show up. The car is about 2 weeks out of tearing up the streets.

Nice man! Go with the auto-spring leveling kit, its cheaper than the HBS if I remember correctly. Lariat with the chrome front bumper though?

What do you mean? It is a Lariat, do they not come with chrome bumpers?

Is the AS kit as easy as the HBS to install? I know there are a few that require some extra effort.

They are cheap...try buying 295/35-18 BFG KDW2s every few thousand miles, that is expensive lol.

Edit...the tires I want aren't so cheap, I guess it is 305/55-20 for the upgrade?

All the lariats I've seen have tan bumpers, unless it has the chrome package then it normally has the mirror caps and side steps too. Maybe its different based on location?

Nice truck! Not my first color choice but it's used, and a nice rig nonetheless.
Seems like all of the Lariats I remember looking at had chrome bumpers as well.

Really didn't care what color, it's that pearl/silver/sand mix...don't even know the name lol. I have 2 other vehicles in which I picked and choosed the color, this was a non issues with me on picking a DD color. Plus I got a great deal on it. It is actually growing on me, doesn't show dirt at all, and generally looks clean all the time so far.

I would have much rather had white or DSG but can't be picky lol. Thanks for the compliments guys!

Anyone know what I can run tire wise with a leveling kit on factory 20s?
