    why not now.......this will be my build thread on here. if I don't have something on the go for my truck, it's likely cause I can't at the moment. can't leave her alone too long. well I got a few things from the past and will have lots for the future that I'll get to posting up....but for now:

    good truck: '99 - had since feb 2011. E4 red XLT sport, supercab flareside, prairie tan cloth interior. mods include 2-tone (once black, now grey) that I plan to delete again next year, square mesh grille overlay, couple custom grille pieces, custom mudflaps, 3.5'' mbrp exhaust tip, magnaflow muffler, debadged, bug deflector, black stereo bezel, red o/d button, red ford oval on steering wheel, wheels painted graphite with black center caps, over-rebuilt frame, monroe shocks, lot more to come

    winter truck: '04, had since oct 2013 - XL, wedgewood blue with some disgusting shade of grey interior. wheels painted graphite, bumpers and grille surround painted to match. pics:

    these work?

    also yesterday, cleaned the MAF sensor and the FILTHY (after less than a year) throttle body on the '04....what a difference....also got a fresh load of rock for traction weight since the old load had frozen and the bags were/are rotting apart...what a difference in performance....and even looks since the load levels her out....

    though I must say, the MAF sensor and throttle body were exceptionally fun in the freezing cold, especially since the part of the intake that's supposed to be held together by a manufactured metal strap is tied together with string....and tied quite well
