2006 XL
2.3L duratech
5 speed
bone stock

day one:




later day one: got the heads, corners, HID's, and stereo swapped over





week 3: got the corners matched to the headlights




couple days later: i acetoned my 2006 emblems




last week: i found the missing mud flap cap, and a carbon fiber radio bezel for a grand total of $12




yesterday: installed the 4/5 drop





sweet ass rake











moar progress:
i know been a while since i updated, but since ther last pics i have tossed out that ***** of a horn thast came stock,a nd found one in an 08 mustang, i have added a rear slider, and found a great fitting cap

i'm thinking i might get one of the roadrunner horns, and hook it up to another button... the stang horn is decent, at least it sounds like it has some balls to it

Wow, very impressive, that bad boy was so ugly only a mother could love it when you bought it. The wheels really set the thing off. Very good job. Nice looking truck.

uhhhhhh. lol. I honestly don't remember. Let me scour grant's brake swap pics and take a look see. I don't recall his lowers being greasable, but everything else is including a-arm bushings.


EDIT: Yeah....lowers aren't greasable.

ok, i have officially renamed this one............... project second chance


the reason behind this is, this 06 was an ex cable truck, and almost met its demise in a T bone accident, the guy i bought it from fixed it, and did one hell of a job repairing it

pics after the accident
