Joe, that is some nice work. Not to pester you, but what kind of money do you have involved in her? That has to be nicest f250 I have seen. Earl is sooooo jealous, HAHA!!
Thanks,for the photos.

Thumbs up Great Looking 55 F250

My 55 is no where close to looking that good, but I always enjoy looking at a well built truck. Who knows, if I hit the lottery I'll be looking you up! Great job!

Thanks for all the nice replies.

I was able to get a few hundred miles on 'er this fall before the weather went sour, and it sure does drive and ride nice. That was the goal all along; to make a good driver that can be driven cross-country without a worry. There are still a few small details to be attended to this winter.

My metal fab guy made up a nice console for the stereo. Then I got it all wired up (GPS, satellite radio, back-up camera, bluetooth, etc.). Had the speaker grilles painted interior color. Sounds a lot better than I expected.





Painted the satellite antennae and mounted them through the tonneau cover.


Added a cargo light and a tire/toolbox rack:


Found that the brakes require more effort than I'd like. A single 7" booster is all there was room for, and the engine is a bit shy of vacuum as well (13 in. max), so another winter project is to add an electric assist power brake system from ABS Power Brake.

Thanks again for all the kind words.

Joe

This is a customer's truck, so I'm not at liberty to say....more than a new one.
