January 2013 Feature My Truck

My sonic blue 2003 Ford F-250 Lariat FX4 6.0L Power Stroke was ordered from Ford by my father and I bought it off him four years ago. It was completely stock when I got it and it currently has only 79,000 miles. My father helped me every step of the way and we built everything on this truck together. We installed an Icon Vehicle Dynamics 10.5-inch lift kit, 37x12.5x17 Super Swamper Vortrac tires, along with Superlift ladder bars. I did all of the Hugger Orange suspension paint work myself. As for performance work, the truck has an aluminum racing radiator, a 4-inch MBRP straight-pipe turbo back dual exhaust, an aFe stage-2 intake, an EGR delete, an XDP coolant filtration system, 6.4L banjo Bolts, and a Blue fuel spring upgrade. The truck also has an SCT Livewire tuner running the Extreme Street tune from Innovative Diesel. The truck rides slightly stiffer than stock, but is extremely stable at any speeds thanks to crossover steering. What I love most about this truck has to be the reactions I get from people because of its size and color scheme. I also get a lot of looks because I have the typical 03 6.0L turbo whistle. I have so much pride in my truck simply because it was completely done with my father; 100 percent from start to finish! Soon to come is two inches more of lift, along with 22x14 rims wrapped in 40x15.5 tires.
