Icon6 Finally did it - FULL SIZE mod

Well, I won't be missing the Ranger, that's for sure. On Friday, June 24, I went and checked out a 2005 F250, but my offer got declined. The following Monday I got a call saying we could purchase it for only $400 more than I had offered. Monday night we were at the dealership to set everything in order to get our new F250, and yesterday we picked it up.

I didn't get too many decent photos because a huge rainstorm hit right after dinner, and my ISO setting was set waaaayy too high.

Diesel? Looking at the exhaust I am guessing a gasser.

Nice truck either way. I want them rims...if only the backspacing was right :(

why do people buy an F250.. then get a 5.4? or any gas motor for that matter.

i never understood, i think you can get a 4.6 in an F250 too?


Nice truck besides the gas part

John, the new truck is looking good, not to mention the rest of them. And you stuck w/the DSG theme of newer trucks. I'm gonna have to swing by once I move home and check it out.

Great looking F250, Congrats on the Purchase.

That thing would look like a beast with those mirrors that extend and some bigger meats.
