It's my work truck and daily driver,i want to change the wheels but thats a problem in itself without major cost,7 lug steel.
Im looking for a bull bar and lights or new grill with lights built in, im happy with it so far.

Thats a supercab not a supercrew but not a big deal.

That truck is huge and long lol.

Id rustproof it if I were you, I did it myself when I bought my 07 last year so it will last longer, time consuming esp with a big truck like that but you wont have to worry about rust.

I know it sounds odd but it's 7 lug because of the heavy duty package most things are beefed up ,upgraded Springs,upgraded Radiator and Auxiliary Transmission oil cooler,Heavy Duty shock absorbers and frame.

Ford has offered a 5.4/7-lug truck since 1997. It used to be called an F-250 (vs. F-250 Super Duty), but then it just became a package for the F-150.
