Yep, exactly.. no mnatter how much lift he puts on, he cant fit any tires wider then a 33 and expect to get any flex with it sadly.. those 33's are stuffing the left adn right sides, but its got like 3 feet of room going up.. half hideous

Not bad, except for the ugly paint, southern comfort ruins trucks with the ugly paint jobs. The local Ford dealer over here has a bunch of southern comfort F series trucks and they always paint them this ugly looking fade from the top down, ruins the trucks.

Too bad he spent all that money and will never be able to enjoy it.

it's nice as a custom truck, but to pretend that it is off road capable is stupidity. That suspension will never make use of those dual reservoir shocks, and he'll probably never try.

That's a mall crawler ifin I ever seen one!

Ahhem? ...diesel. lol. You can see the coolin' fins about 12" in from the exhaust tip to draw in cool air to cool the super hot tailpipe to lower DPF blowout of ash. Also see the hood emblem.

Pics suck to see the front shaft.

And yes....those fenders took me some time to get to like.....just like the 06+ ranger..as with the 08 Superduty.

You're right. I think the new full size Chevy's look like poopy. I do like the paint job on this truck though.

i'm gonna be COMPLETELY honest. i've always wanted to say this. SOUTHERN COMFORTS ARE FOR POSERS!!! you can now get them on ford and chevy suv and trucks. its a nice way for someone to drop a CRAP load of money into a vehicle and call it their OWN custom vehicle. there are quite a FEW around here in the county, and each and everyone of the F250 SOCO's are procomp lift with procomp tires, and the same paint. and p.s. if you were to drop THAT much money into a truck and act like it's an offroad vehicle, you are out of your mind.

thanks for reading, rank over.
