    Cross Bar Recommendation

    I have a pair of 2005 XLT running boards for sale. They look brand new but I'm really just trying to get them out of the garage. I live in Dallas, TX - if the shipping would be worth it i'll pretty much just give them to you.

    Also, for you guys with faded trim, I took the advice of a bunch of people on here and bought my $4.50 bottle of Mothers Back to Black. WOW best 5 bucks I've ever spent. Did this on the back step, roof racks and hood cowl. [/IMG]

    My 05 XLT 4x2. Put this truck through hell and its been in places no 4x2 should have gone. Still lookin' good too. Thinking a 1.75/1.5 spacer lift and 265/70/17s are right around the corner. Also waiting on my hunter brush gaurd and flowmaster 40 in the mail! wooot! [/IMG] [/IMG]

    Success! Just finished this mod - Looks and sounds great. Noticed a definite increase in highway passing ability. Really drones at 3-4K RPM with positive pedal vibration. Even got a great whistle/suction sound at anything over 1,500 RPM. Cool deal. I'll post a picture tomorrow when it's...
