Default Clean F-150 and random weekend pics

Finally got to give big white a good scrub down after the long winter season as well as give her some new brakes all around. Hawk LTS pads and NAPA premium rotors. The big girl stops on a dime now.

out with the old crappy burned up brakes..



in with the new!
4 wheel disc brakes FTMFW!!




clean!







and the "Tuff Truck Bag" im testing and reviewing for the Tuff Truck Bag company. pretty cool product.






and a couple randoms of my ranger from yesterday. my nephew wanted to go wheelin in the "monster truck" so we messed around on his dads friends dirt hills for a bit.

thanks man. i got the pads from a vendor on the F-150 forum im on and i got the rotors from NAPA. i highly suggest these pads, especially with oversize tires. they are the same pads i have on my ranger and they are 200% better then the OEM pads.

Nice looking Pat.

They make brake pads better for over sized tires? I need to check in to that. I go through brakes pretty fast.

thanks Myke. they arent made specifically for larger tires but they are a performance pad with better heat resistance and a longer lasting compound. on my ranger i went from white knuckle poor braking with the ford pads to confidence with these pads. the ford pads would fade so bad that i sometimes didnt know if the truck would even stop. the new pads grab hard and have no fade what so ever, they actually grab harder the hotter they get. the dust is much lower as well over OEM.

HMMMM I may check into them.

I also would like to know about that truck bag. I could see some good use for it. Especially with only 4 tie downs in the ranger. How could I "try" it out for them?

one of the reps for that company approached the admin of the F-150 site i moderate to see if one of the mods could test and review the bag. since i dont have a bed cover and the other guys do i volunteered to try it. not a bad deal, i get to keep it when im done reviewing it. i think it will come in handy, especially around hunting season to carry my gear in.

I think it would still be useful with a cover also.
