Let the Modding begin

Well I gave in to the addiction sooner than I thought.

Added plate protectors and a stubby antenna. Was going to add splash guards but didn't feel like taking the wheels of to make room, it was too damn hot anyways.





Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Uh oh, mods are a slippery slope. lol Good start though, the shorty antennae is a gotta have mod.

Every time I pop off my cover to replace the plate stickers ,I'm always amazed at how much abuse the front end takes, covers a smart idea.

Thanks guys, next mod or rather fix is happening in a few weeks.

Getting the bottoms of the doors fixed and the rockers. Also having a huge hole I discovered in the bed fixed. Seller tried to cover it up with a cheap ass black paint job. $800 for the doors/rockers, no charge for fixing the hole. Pics to follow soon.

I just couldn't help myself.

Ordered a new tonneau cover. Almost the same as the old one but this one will not have the front flip opening option.

Truxxedo Low-pro QT, it was the only one they make that fits the 2001-03 5.5' beds. I never noticed until I went to measure the inside width of the bed, but the bed tapers in at the rear by about 2" per side. Not sure what Ford was thinking, should have just made the bed straight.

It won't get installed until after I get the spray-in bedliner, yet another soon to be purchase
