Two Clean Red Trucks!

I cleaned the ol girl up today for the first time in three weeks (wedding and honeymoon cause that). Boy was she dirty! The lighting conditions sucked for my pics....booo

Exterior:

- Scrubbed Tire and wheels with Simple Green
- Scrubbed wheel wells
- Washed with Meguiar's Deep Crystal Wash
- Dried with microfiber
-Wiped down with Meguiar's Quik Detailer

Interior

- Vacuumed
- Dressed interior with Meguiar's Natural Shine
- Scrubbed seats, armrest, and center console with Tuff Stuff and a microfiber

Then I headed out to get my "9/11" pic for another site's photocontest.. luckily my brother-in-law is a firefighter :D

F550 or F650? Is it a gasser? The fire department I was in back in NY had a 550 that was a gasser and it got 6 MPG lol. When we had the trailer on it got 2MPG.

Truck and pictures look good as usual!

Also in the next few months:

Mods to come are:
  • 3" lift
  • 5k HID fogs (in route to house now)
  • Line of Fire LED lightbar
  • 32" BFGs
  • 15x8 MB Razor wheels
  • Modded hitch
  • Dumped Flowmaster Delta 40
  • remove tow hooks (I dont want to, but im not gonna have them modded for BL)

Im basically buying the wheels and tires from a friend for $600. they are only 4 months old. I needed winter wheels and moreless they are free! If i like them, ill keep them on there, if not, i transfer tires to the polished (PIA to keep clean) wheels.


(of course ill put white letters out though)

Yeah, you're not alone. I mean i needed a winter wheel anyhow and those are not polished like mine and are coated. So if anything, ill have them for winter and then throw the polished back on in the Spring. Like I said, im basically getting the wheels for free and I dont wanna have to spend another 8 hours polishing in the spring. So my wheels can be put up in the basement nice and clean and polished. And if I get bored, I can go polish on them lol

you can buy the upholstery from this guy:

https://www.ranger-forums.com/interior-semi-tech-40/nice-oem-style-seat-covers-118948/

dont buy from his ebay store, just email him and tell him exactly what you have and what you want and he will make them for you..cost around 2-300 depending on what you get. I paid $220 shipped for my upholstery
