    Well guys, I think its time for an update!. A few have seen my old F150 that I bought back in November. The truck made me weary and sounded like it may have been developing the diesel noise and I wasn't about to throw that kind of money into it replacing phasers on a truck that I just bought. Also it just wasnt as nice and clean as I am accustomed to and needed work, so I sold it, made some money on it, and found me another truck!

    I was really aggrevated with dealerships trying to rape me on prices of the trucks and was down and out I couldnt find a decent one at a decent price UNTIL i ran across a guys truck on the other F150 forum!

    So met up with him, tested the truck, looked it over real good, asked about phasers, spark plugs, and checked things like the ashtray that I had to replace on my other truck and a few other things...the truck is sweeeeeet! Just the right amount of mods and things that I would have done had i been modding an F150 from the beginning. Picking the truck up Thursday!







    The ranger is being taken to a dealer sale today with my buddy who is going to sell it for me down there. bye bye Ranger, youve been a great friend

    I like this one, those 35's? It looks exactly like my chief engineers at the fh but in white/gold instead of black/gold.

    Love it, what is it 5.4 or 4.6?
  4. I'm f**king jealous lol That thing is BEAUTIFUL! Real nice find man!

    All Lariats come with 5.4s. And it sounds mean with the exhaust! Yeah they are 35s, going down to a 33 though when I get tires for it

    Black mamba The mannnn

    Sweet truck!!! Good luck with it!!
  7. You should keep the 35s on there man, they look great on there lol They are the perfect size. But I'm sure gas mileage and cost of tires is gonna help you change your mind lol

    they rub at full tilt and are not the cheapest tire in the world. That particular BFG in a 35 for a 20" wheel is about $425 a piece
  10. Yeah, the bigger the wheel, the more empty space in your wallet lol That's why I like my 15s. Go get some steelies and then run 35s haha

    i REALLY like that truck, awsome find man! my dad's boss just did the same thing as you, had 1 lariat that was nice but over 100k miles, had issues with the spark plugs & a few other things, so he went out and bought a clone to his old truck only with 16,000 miles, lol. black & gold, very classy looking.

    the white is going to keep you busy cleaning, but that shouldnt be a problem for someone like you

    I WISH i could have found one with only 16k miles for the price I gave for it.

    Put some 305 Terra Grapplers on it. The 35s are a bit too big and rub. Plus im not paying $425 for new 35" BFGs when these go out. Im putting my ultra gauge in there and some new Hellas behind the grill (he is taking out the PIAAs as they were a gift to him from his wife). Put some 09+ badges on it. Other than that, nope it already has everything that I want

    meh wont be too bad, white really stays "looking" clean. We have a white ford fusion. Its the black and dark colors that suck

    dixie_boysles New Member

    nah it will need some tires in about 10k miles for sure. the only downfall to the whole truck
  19. They have more than 10k left in em man. They last a long time if you keep em right.

    whatever you do, get rid of the 20s. get a nice 16 or 17 and thatll look great with 33s.
