    I've been contemplating painting my wheels black, too. What did you use and is that flat, or satin?

    I used Rust-Oleum FlexiDip. It gives it a flat finish. I noticed a couple chips in it on one of my wheels so I may touch them up.

    I added switchback LED's to my front turn signals today. These were a pain to get working right.

    This weekend a friend and I installed a Motorola PM1500 VHF radio in my truck, which was then upgraded to an XTL5000. The intention is to eventually use it as a ham radio and during storm chases. For now it is programmed with channels for work and some others.

    Beautiful truck you have. I am thinking about doing some of these mods you have myself. Can you tell me what brand of laptop table that is and would it be easy to install in a 04 Sport Trac. Thank you

    Its a Gamber Johnson mount. The base mounts to the passenger seat bolts. It was very easy to install and took less than 10 minutes.

    All good things must come to an end. I traded it in for a 2016 yesterday.
