Cool New to the forum, new with a SD.....

Hey all, been on forums a bunch and I have done some pretty cool things to my (previous vehicle) 2001 Ranger Edge. It was blacker than Toby's butt with black lenses up front. Other mods were: Daytime running lights delete, 31" rubber, added an overhead console out of an Explorer (with temp and compass). And a few others that I learned online.

Maybe a few of you can get me heading in the right direction with my little 2002 F350 SD XL. It's a gas job 5.4 regular cab 2wd LB. I have already put 17" Eagle Alloy (140 IIRC) with Silent armors and swapped the rear bumper for chrome. and a 5th wheel/camper plug in at the front of the box.

Plans:
-Chrome front bumper
-Chrome billet front grill
-get rid of the sealed beam headlights- I plan to put in excursion lenses- any advice here???? I will have to mod the harness- but will those lenses just bolt in?
-rear airbags (for the camper)
-magnaflow muffler and hacking out the cat (anyone taken their cat out? engine lights?)
-40/20/40 seats (currently sporting two buckets with nothing between)
-spray in bed liner
-Daytime running light delete- where the heck is the module???
-possibly thinking of adding a overhead console in this one too- I have no idea if SD's even ever came with them?


I will post pics of my ranger and SD asap...... Looking forward to great advice.

-possibly thinking of adding a overhead console in this one too- I have no idea if SD's even ever came with them?They did come with a few different types depending on year. The harness may already be there.

05+ Bumper fit to 99-04

Thanks everyone! I am thinking about doing the 05* grill swap. The only catch is I am limited on funds and around here even used parts are expensive. I have even found a few places trying to sell me used parts for more than Ford Dealers offer new. If I found a wrecked truck I would have to be white to match or paint the upper bumper. There is a grill mod on ebay which would look nice IMO (see link above)



As far as the console and the harness already beiing there- who knows but who cares. Thats what schematics and trial and error is all about, right? lol. But seriously the harness would be nice.
