I ended up picking up a truck from Albert a few weeks ago.
Got a 2008 F350 Lariat Super Duty.

I got it for a good deal but it need brakes and tires, and had high KMs.

First week I got it ended up getting it safetied after getting a few minor things done, like some light bulbs, windshield, and brakes.

After that I started the mad search for parts to make the truck a little less than stock.

Went to pickup my fender flares and ended up getting a line on a fabtech 6" lift for $500 with bilstien 5100 shocks, some almost new 37" BGF ATs and some ION 20" wheels.

Last week I did the fender flares.
This weekend I did the Lift kit with Rory (littlerunner)

First impressions of the lift are good. it rides nice and smooth, kit was really easy to install. Overall really happy with how it turned out.

future plans will be doing a 5" exhaust system and looking for a proper tuning suite.

Photos go in order for the last 2 weeks from night i got the truck to tonights lift.

Whoop Whoop!!!! Cool

It was quite fun to help build.

Bolts and parts come apart so much easier on a 2 year old truck compared to a 20 years old truck.

Bolt on kits are sooooo much easier then fabbing up everything custom to make it work.

Plus you discovered that you have a 6" lift on your truck, brand is still unknown.

Time you swap out your radius drop brackets and get real radius arms.
Lets get cracking on the 4runner and we can get that thing on the road before you get another girlfriend and cant work on your trucks anymore! lol
