    God that truck looks amazing.

    I've always liked the 4th gen front end...just look a little tougher. I've considered trying to find a way to mount those fog lights on my 3rd gen and make it look factory.

    Great Job

    Yesterday I ordered a Uniden BCD996XT scanner, antenna and cable from Scanner Master. Then I took a ride down to MHQ in West Hartford, CT and picked up a radio center console. Looks like I have a new project for this weekend.

    No sir. I use the computer for photography, storm chasing and a few other things. Scanner is for the same thing.

    Only issue I have with this is it's not a 4.6.

    With that being said, this is probably the most badass 4th gen I've ever seen. Clean, functional, and just plain cool.

    This week I ordered a Powerstop drilled and slotted brake kit and installed it yesterday. Aside from needing some plastic explosive to get the tires and rotors off, installation went quickly and I can definitely notice a difference.
