Update 7/6/2014

Mod: "Angry Eyes"

I first mocked them up with masking tape and painted the tape black. Measuring one side to match the other so they are exactly the same. Once i realized i liked them i reversed the tape and left the area to be painted un covered. I used Dupli-Color Black Enamal. I have used head light paint on tint and it has always left a purple color and i was going for a pure black look. I drove at night and it doesnt seam to make my headlights any dimmer than they already are.

So far you've go a nice handle on your project. What's the overall plan for it? DD but weekend warrior? With a 6" lift I recommend dual stabilizers once you step up the tire size again.
Don't worry about dropping the track bar the angle looks good for now (from what I can tell anyway) and when you do lift it the kit should come with a drop pitman any way.

Thanks alot. My plans are to have semi road driven offroad truck. Id like to go for kind of a recovory vehicle. I have always been able to pull jeeps and smaller offroad vehicles out so easy because of the weight. Id like a tool box full of tools and an air compressor for break downs and led's to light up the bed area for a work place in the dark if something breaks on someones rig. Im not a big fan of huge winch bumpers but i will probobly be blacking mine out and blacking out all badges besides the hood and bumper ovals and going to a pick your own parts yard soon to get a tail gate and rear bumper to make it look nicer until i can afford a 2008 and up bed swap. And thanks john2001 for the stabalizer idea. I actually had one stabalizer on the front but about a week ago i noticed the hole case of the shock was rusted through so i went to pull it off and the whole rod and case was rusted in half and only one small bit of metal was left holding it on to the mount. Ive had sloppy steering for awhile now so its prolly been shot for a long time. Im pretty used to the steering but if its bad i will deffinitly atleast be getting a new stabalizer.

Yeah I built mine out of some piping we had at the shop I used to work for. Ill see if I can find my build thread and link it for you. I built my SD as a bogger/DD. I didn't have much axle wrap when I had my 36x14.5s on the truck but when I stepped up to 38x15.5s and added some more power the wrap was bad then I ended up blowing my spider gears apart in the D50. Not because of axle wrap either obviously http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/12...-pictures.html

No sorry no new updates yet, i am in the process of getting financed for a new quad and im kind of just saving all my money in case they need a down payment. But when thats all done i think my first purchase will be a tool box and onboard air system as that seems to be what will get the most use right now. Thanks for being interested in my build though!

Update: 8/3/2014
Mod: Tractor supply low profile tool box

I decided to go ahead and buy a tool box this weekend, it is a cheaper tool box compared to some of the $700 ones i was looking at but it will get the job done.

I like how it looks with my cb antennas (i broke one off in the trails so i cant show you the new location yet) i had decided to move them out further so they look a little wider.

I am a little dissapointed that i bought the one for full size trucks but it seems a little small but its good enough for now. My plans are to mount an on board air system inside it and maybe some lights and different compartments. I will also be using some roll on bedliner inside of it to protect it. but here is how it is for now

update: 8/5/2014
Mod: Dupli-color bed armor

I've had alot of new rock chips since i got my tires and i am getting sick of them. Had some under the door rust and damage from an accident to cover up as well.

Review:
Product went on very thin and took many coats. its been almost 24 hours and it still seems pretty soft. I will give a better review in the weeks to come

Let me tell you taping off these lines was not easy and my body lines from cab to box where off from the box sagging due to rusty mounts but i feel i did the best i could. I roughed the surface and sanded down the rust and chip spots with 120 grit sand paper. Then i applied some rustoleum primer to prevent the rust from spreading. Then roughed it with the pad that came with the kit and began to apply. I pretty much just worked my way front to back in sections placing a fan on the section previous to the one i was working on and did this over and over until it covered good. Id say about 7 coats. THIS STUFF IS VERY THIN. cover your garage floor very well or do this outside because at first it wants to fall right off. I know that the damage on the box still looks bad but this is alot cheaper than a box and once i get a new bumper it shouldnt look to bad. Ok that's alot to read sorry for rambling but im actually pretty excited about this mod as it makes the truck look a little more durable as well as actually making it more durable. Here are some pictures of the process.

When running no tailgate theres nothing to hold the bed rails up. I don't know how picky the SDs are because I always had a tailgate on mine. Over time the wind pushing on the side of the rail will bow the bed rails together at the top. If you're going to run with no tailgate shove a 2x4 in there at the top to keep it from boeing in.
