Intro
Hey everyone, I only made an intro on this forum, however I would like to be more active in it.
I decided the best way to do this would be a project log.

About The Truck
My baby is a 2003 FX4 off-road with 76,000 miles. She's a v6 4.0 4x4, with an automatic transmission.
She's deep wedgewood blue metallic, with a few scratches and dings, as well as some clearcoat coming up.
She has original fender flares, and her running boards were just removed yesterday.

Mods So Far
  • Dual exhaust behind rear tires with Flowmaster 40 delta
  • Undercoated the bottom
  • Replaced tailgate cables
  • Repainted radio bezel
  • K&N Airfilter
  • Removed Running Boards
  • Painted Honeycomb grille
  • Added Hitch and Ball
  • Ford floor mats
  • Ford steering wheel cover
And I probably missed something.

Mods on the Way
  • Lock & Roll Up Tonneau Cover (Est. November 3rd)
  • 3" Side Step Nerf Bar Running Boards (Est. November 4th)
  • Black Bull Bar (Est. November 3rd)
