Mod Updates lots of pics!

Got a lot of stuff knocked of the list of things to do to the truck so here is an update on everything I have done in the last few months.

Did my rear brakes, new wheels and temp tires, scan gauge, sport trac dash bezel, cleaned up a bunch of my wiring, got a set of thunderbolt turn signal mirrors

Heres what the truck is looking like

I was concerned about that myself but bussman says they are fully weather proof as is, I still may do a case or cover of some sort.

Looks good but as you can probably tell already those tires are way too big for your truck lol your ripping off fender flares under flex. Any plan for a lift in the future? Truck would look amazing with one.

PS nice brakes!! super jealous.

actually the 285s fit a heck of a lot better then I expected, I was on the bump stop in that pic took a lot to get to the point of pulling the flair and the fronts have plenty of room.

that being said I have a BL sitting in a box at home, but I want to be able to do everything at once.
