Sarges Dually Thread

Alright folks,

I figured Id start a build thread of sorts to keep track of all my mods. Here is what Ive done so far:

2wd Valance
F-150 Running Board Mounts
Added the OEM Hitch
Line-X
Tonneau Cover

Here is what I'm looking to do:

Possibly Level It
BFG KO2's
Id like a set of Wheels I think the wheels are a little dated
Tint the front windows
Add a Viar System & Air Lift Bags
Weather Tech Mats
Some sort of seat covers
Ham Radio w/Remote Head (Still Trying to Figure Out Antenna Mounting)
Audio Upgrades and Some Head Rest Monitors for my Mini
Fender Flares for the Front
Flaps for the rear
Bug deflector
Tuff Skinz Front and Rear
3rd Brake Light Camera (Hope To Integrate it with the OEM Monitor)

Heres a picture of it before it hit hibernation:

I haven't had a chance yet. I didn't settle on this truck until late fall, and all I did was move my 5th wheel about 20 feet, and I did pull my dump trailer with 2 cord of wood for a short distance but I was a little worried about the truck recording before the 1000 mile mark. I know its not a big deal, but I didn't buy this truck locally and I really don't want to give a local dealer any reason to void my warranty. But I needed to get the trailers moved and my Silverado cant handle the weight, nor does it have a 5th wheel set up.

Finally added the bug deflector with magnetic TuffSkinz, installed the F-150 running board brackets. Id still like to do something about the wheel, I'm close to pulling the trigger on a set of Eagle Alloys just debating whether or not to pull the trigger on some BFG's too. Id like to step up a size but I'm not sure how large I can go without spacers. Also throwing around the idea of installing a magnum headache rack, but Id have to figure out what to do about a tonneau cover.

Very nice. I'm trying to figure out what mods I want to make on my 2017 F350 6.2L DRW. I've been looking for extra wheels so I don't have to pay a tire shop to swap out winter/summer tires twice a year. Do you mind sharing a pic or a link to the Eagle wheels you're looking at? I was heavily advised to not mess with overall tire/wheel sizes, nor to put in spacers, due to ratios and the fact I carry a load (2+ tons) in the bed frequently.

Will be following your project closely! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks,

Yes Ill post a link when I find what I want. I'm trying to find a set that's close to the Alcoa's the 450's come with. I obviously would like a set of Alcoa's but they're pricey. If I do change my wheels the ones on my truck will be for sale as well. I just wanted to go to maybe a 285 instead of the 275, wasn't going to go crazy as I don't want anything to do with spacers on the rear either.

I don't drive the truck much and I cant wait to get some seat time in it. I only put about 500 miles on it before it was parked for the winter. I really need to try and pin down a set of mud flaps before I do anything else at this point.

Just to confirm your stock wheels are the 17" rims, right? Please put me first in line if you don't have anyone else already waiting? Depending on price, cost of shipping, and timing, I'm very interested.

Paw's, I've owned my dually now for 7 months and I finally broke 3000 miles on mine last weekend. I had to pick-up my new to me skid steer. I haven't done any really heavy towing yet, the most I've hauled is 22,700lbs according to the CAT scale. I was very happy with the way it handled the load. Other than the bucking from these New England frost heave roads it did very well. Road up here can get awful rough in the winter time for frost that causes the pavement to crack and rise up like a wash board.
