    I know I know, not a ford but if it counts I still have a ford key chain. Lol.
    Here is my 2007 jeep jk Sahara unlimited when I bought it. It has the 4" rough country lift, 35" nitto trail grapplers, 20" Moto metal 961 wheels, and an xrc smittybilt rear bumper with tire carrier. Here it is when I first bought it.

    Here she is on her 1st wheeling trip.

    One of the 1st things I did was add sway bar quick disconnects to allow for more flex and also a set of flat flares to be able to achieve the most amount of flex with hitting the flares and a set of rock sliders to protect the rockers.

    Then I picked up a high lift jack since the factory one is useless.

    Wheeling with everything on.

    Was an awesome to take the doors and top off.

    Got a rough country hybrid stubby bumper.

    Needed something to full the void so I got a rough country 12k winch with their cover.

    To get more traction I ordered and installed an aussie locker up front. And what a differencethat made! No more open diff in the front.

    Wheeling again!

    Whoops! Cork screwed 2 weights off the rear driveshaft. It rode horrible the 3 hours back home. That night I bought a slightly used one from a forum member on a jk forum for $110 shipped. Can't beat that!

    A few nights ago I got the bright idea to plastidip the whole jeep matte black.

    Not bad for a first coat.
    [​IMG]
    Moar coats!

    Coming together finally after 5 coats.

    Thanks everyone. Now I'm just saving up for a Dana 44, truss and gusset kit along with some heavy duty shafts. Then 4.88's, e- lockers front and rear and eventually front and rear aftermarket driveshafts so I can run 37's with no worries when I'm on the trails.
