Mods Have Started

Sold my Excursion yesterday. Started on the mods today. Ordered Upfitter Switches for the dash. Good old Ebay. Picking up a Ford OEM nav radio with satellite tomorrow and on Fri/Mon picking up a Retrax roll top cover. The rolltop was on the 08 F350 that I sold in 09. The guy lives in Red Deer. Gave me a hell of a deal on that. $350. Gotta mount my Trans4mer setup back on the 07 as well. And so it begins.

Ordered new mounting brackets for the Trans4mer winch setup yesterday and the Retrax fits great. Bought a 07 6.0 Diesel Ford factory diagnostics manual from Ebay. Never know when you might need that. Next is exhaust(not sure about intake yet) Tuner/monitor. and so on.

Got a Newer Tailgate with the step today. Needs a little TLC but was well worth it. No damage. Discovered when I got home it has the built in Camera. What a bonus.

Ordered the drivers side hinge for my new tailgate. Was looking at getting it repainted but the parts guy suggested taking it to the detailer in they're shop. He looked at it and said he could buff most of the scratches out. He said they were dog scratches. So I should have my tailgate back by Thursday.

My new Upfitter switches arrived today as well so I have a little work to do tomorrow. What's nice is that Ford sells the complete kit with the wiring harnesses,fuse and relay block and mounting bracket all included.


Ordered a coolant bypass filter system today from Ebay.

Picked up my Ford Logo Bedmat for the box at Ford today.

Oh forgot, my Smoked vent visors should arrive any day now.

Jenn installed my Ford tough Decal and my new REAL TRUCKS RATTLE Decal on Sunday.

I'm thinking I'm forgetting something. Oh I know, Kevin at Rapid Revolutions is working on a price for a 4 inch exhaust, Edge Insight Monitor, SCT Tuner with EGR shutoff and possibly an intake. Not sure about the intake yet after what happened to my previous truck, Gotta get all this done before the weather changes. Oh and Mudflaps.
