Pics of my 2000 F250 Super Duty- Now with 05-07 Headlight Coversion
Thought I'd post pics of my truck. This truck belonged to my my Grandfather who decided he wasnt safe to drive. He and I made a deal on it.
It is a 2000 F250 XLT SD, 5.4, manual trans, 4.10 gears. It has 56,000 miles on it. The interior is perfect, exterior has typical wear. The wheels were horrible. My dad and I just spent 8 hours stripping the clearcoat and polishing them. They are not perfect but look a heck of a lot better than they did.
Also, my dad modified my grille. He noticed that there was shiny stuff under the nicks in the black paint. A little elbow grease and some lacquer thinner and I have a chrome grille. Looks alot better.
The only thing I dont like is the diamond plate running boards and flaps, those are getting changed.
Also converted the headlights to the 05-07 look. This job went fairly smooth, but the instructions underestimate the cutting required to the header panel. Its not enough to weaken the panel alot, but you do have to cut a good bit more than I expected. My dad used to do auto body work so I let him take charge fitting these. We ran into a little fitment problem on the right side as a result of a little fender bender my pap had when he ran the truck. The core support must have been tweaked just enough to pull the header panel out of alignment. Took a little extra time on that one but they look great. We were happy with the quality and final fit.
Other than that maybe just tinting the windows and a new steering box. Sector shaft is twisted and there isnt enough adjustment to center the steering wheel.
