After two and half years of owning a 99 F150 and then totaling it about a month ago, I finally upgraded to an 01 ecsb 5.3 4x4 with 182k on the clock, in medium green metallic, one of my favorite GM colors. For grins, a pic of the Ford in it's prime.
Now, onto the new truck.



The driver's seat is a bit worn but all the other seats like they've never been sat in. The truck is basically loaded but no on-star. Came with the ARE cap and that will be on and off the truck depending on the season. The rockers are two weeks old and the cab corners look like new. There is some rust under the rear flares that will eventually need attention but I'm happy with it for now, especially considering it's an MN truck.

Now on to plans:
-Remove bug shield
-De-mold and debadge
-OEM 18s or 20s depending on what's available on either Toyo RTs or some other AT
-Clear corners
-03-06 Silverado tails
-Carven R series with knockoff Corsa tip
-BB tune, Vette servo, and maybe trucool 40k
-Colormatching
-Billet grille inserts
-Zone 3.5 combo lift
-Bilstein 5100s or zone shocks

That's all for now, will update this as I go along but I'm loving this truck over the Ford and I don't think I'll look back.

I've got all the CM supplies sitting in tabs on my phone, just waiting for warmer weather.

I was impressed for the age of the truck, the new rockers give me the warm fuzzies when I look at them lol.

I had a cap on my last truck and loved it so when I saw this truck with one and in good condition, I jumped all over it.

Congrats on getting rid of the gay mobile. (Not congrats on the totaled part, I talk a lot of shit but don't wish harm on anyone, hope you're doing ok, for reals)

Another congrats on the new ride. Kyles truck is what made me love the green color , so much potential, and this thing looks immaculate. And so much room for activities compared to your single cab.

I say cm the bug guard and call it a day :high5:

Scooped up a set of NNBS Z71 18s in really good shape for $200. The tires are mostly junk but I only wanted the wheels anyway. I think that's a decent deal but I'm sure a half dozen people will let me know in short order.

Good deal IMO if wheels are in nice shape! I'm always scouring local CL for takeoffs of all different sizes. I want a set of the new 18s......
