    Been a while guys, life gets crazy sometimes and I've been tired of reading the same BS on all the forums so I stopped keeping up with them (mostly the other guys).

    Thought I'd share with you guys an update on my status.

    The 4v 2001 Screw was a world of problems, none with the 4v, but I and to replace the trans and transfer case and decided it was time to sell it before I spent anymore money on it. I also wasn't in love with it and regret selling my scab in the first place.

    Went out and bought a 2012 XLT Scab 5.0 Blue Flame 4x4. I absolutely love it.

    Haven't done a whole lot yet since I have a payment and stuff now. But hoping to change that soon. So far I've added a Ford soft tonneau cover which is necessity in my opinion. Black FX4 headlights. Just got the windows tinted at 18%. Swapped the grille out with a PTM STX grille.

    Onto the pics...

    New grille. Removed steps. [​IMG]

    Here's a before and after shot

    I'll keep you guys updated. Should have wheels and tires soon since the screw finally sold and I've got some cash to play with. Just can't make up my mind on which ones... Plan on PTM everything and adding some emblem overlays and FX4 tail lights as well.

    Looks great, mods as cash flow permits.

    You'll get it where you want it eventually but a great base to build on.

    I think the black and blue work well together! Nice choice. Thinking of color matching anything?
