    started out with a 2007 double, short bed sport in speedway blue. picked it up January 6th, 2008. i proceded to go straight home and join this forum.
    yall know what a stock truck looks like, so i won't bother with that.

    up until about a year and a half to two years ago, i really didn't know where i wanted to take the truck, so the things i did to it were scattered in purpose, and most were cheap.

    there were a few things that i spent some money on like a thule roof rack and a pace edwards aluminum roll or tenneau cover.

    I'll just let the pictures show what happened in the first few years of ownership.
    Note: skip this first group of pictures if you just want to see the real mods.

    dug up some videos. some new some old.

    we got a ton of snow a couple years ago. schools, companies, and even the government (Washington DC) closed down for days.

    myself and my neighbors huge f250 were the only vehicles who could make it out of the neighborhood. few days later after i had made enough tracks get my dad's car out of the driveway i hooked a wakeboard line to the hitch and had some fun with my younger brother.
    video by Phil (my father)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7d5SUYY2wU

    couple from ocala about a year ago. (videos by Alex "sparklegrease")
    try to ignore the annoying squeaking sound. somehow got some dirt between my bumper and frame and it made a terrible noise whenever the frame flexxed (which happens a lot with our trucks)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWGymEhWg4s

    airing down is key.
