Well, I decided it was time to consolidate my assets and got rid of both me old truck and my mustang.
Here is a picture of my old truck.
And here is my mustang.
Both the mustang and truck were becoming more maintenance than fun and so I decided it was time. Last Saturday, i picked up a 2008 F150 SuperCrew. I got it off the used lot of a local dealership but it only had 4500 miles on it. Below are a couple of pics of the truck sitting on the dealership lot.
I have already peeled the pinstripe and gotten the front windows tinted to match the backs. I also picked up a set of OEM running boards today although I dont want running boards. I really want the nerf bars but i got a great price on the running boards so i couldnt pass it up for now until i can afford the nerf bars.
Right now, the near future plans are to get quite a few oem parts for the truck.
OEM Fender Flares
OEM Chrome Nerf Bars
OEM FX4 Front Bumper (i want fogs and tow hooks dad gummit)
OEM Black Housing Headlights
I also want to get a leveling kit for it so that the front will match the back. In the midst of doing all of the above, I will also be working with my stereo guy to build a nice little system in the truck that is well hidden and "stock" looking but will feature in-dash DVD and Nav.
If you can get a good deal on it go Pioneer. I have had Alpine, Kenwood, and now Pioneer and I enjoy the Pioneer system alot more then the other two. Not to say the other two weren't good, Pioneer just had more umphh.
i used to love alpines but they lost my interest when they dropped back down to 2v preouts. I now use pioneer in all of my single din applications but i love the fact that the new Kenwood double din nav/dvd units are using Garmin navigation. just because of Garmin and the slightly cheaper price, im likely going to be getting a Kenwood and i have friends at a stereo shop that are hooking me up at cost.
I want the Eclipse unit with the garmin nav unit with it.Its got 8 volt outputs.I need to call my stere shop buddy & see what kind of deal he will give me on it.Eclipse is my favorite brand of car head units.I've won several sound quality contest using a Eclipse head unit. They are one of the cleanest sounding units on the market. BTW thats a great looking truck.
Looks like you were at Crossroads. I hope you didn't have to put up with Baxter! He literally ran me off when I was really wanting one of the F250's they had. I got my F350 from an individual for at least $10K less. And it came with a 5th wheel hitch and brake controller. He called me almost every day. I still get emails from him.
I started using Eclipse before Sound Waves opened.I can't remember the shop name but it was in Bartlet on Kirby Whitten rd just north of 64 highway. I've owned 3 of their competition models that had no amps in them. The last one had 8 volt outputs to really drive a amp good. I never had any problems with them. My last one was bought in 2000 & it was still playing great when I traded the truck it was in last August
