    it all started out in 2000, my dad had 2 kids in boyscouts and a reg. cab toyota pickup just wasnt cutting it. so he got a bigger truck. i was 11 when he bought it and when i turned 16 i got to drive it to and from school...then in college it became mine. and i found some forums...and the money wasting, dream building and moding began..so heres my story:


    2001
    F150
    2wd
    White
    5.4L 2v engine
    3.55 gears
    supercrew
    Lariat
    tow package
    power everything
    17in chrome wheels
    6disk cd player
    bed extender

    then came the lightning headlights, clear corners, 4x4 valance and clear lense fog lights and a 2in coil spacer
    [​IMG]
    then I put 2 lights behind my grill
    [​IMG]
    then i got some more behind there for 4 lights and got some new tail lights that were later ditched cuz i thought they looked like dodge tail lights
    [​IMG]
    i still wasnt sittin tall enough so i got a bigger lift: 3.5" lift spindle and 2in lift coil and 4in block out back
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    removed the running boards to make it look taller...it worked!
    [​IMG]
    then got a full exhaust system done comprising of: OBX SS long tube headers, resonators, dual E-cutouts, x-pipe, dual borla XR-1 race mufflers and tipped before the rear tire-Lightning style!
    [​IMG]
    got Recon's Extreme scanning lightbar:
    [​IMG]
    then went out with my GF and she took some professional pics of my baby
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and painted some of the inside
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and out-ish
    [​IMG]
    then I did a HUGE project: building my own prerunner bumper/grill guard/gettheFoutofmyway bar
    begining
    [​IMG]
    did it in a weekend so i was kinda rushed..the next one will be better for sure

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    got a FREE fullsize toolbox...that i painted black
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    then removed some stupid warning stickers
    before
    [​IMG]
    after
    [​IMG]
    got rid of all the crap behind my backseat including the 6disk holder, stock bottlejack holder and lost quite a bit of weight, and now i have a fullsize jack and tire iron in my tool box with my recovery gear...etc..
    [​IMG]
    got smoked heads and corners
    [​IMG]
    tinted tail lights
