I recently had to retire my Explorer from daily driving duty due to it suffering yet another catastrophic mechanical failure. I beat the crap out of my Ex, and it gave me many years of faithfull service, but alas, out with the old, and in with the new(er).

I had been wanting a newer F150 for awhile now, and after searching near and far, high and low, from west to east, I finally found something that peaked my interest. Granted it was in another state, and more money than I really was looking to spend, but once I saw it I immediately fell in love. After convincing the wife that it was a reasonable deal (I got it for 6k under blue book), I quickly went to work making it mine...

The specs...

In all reality, this wasn't the most practical vehicle for me to choose as a daily driver, but I will say that it is by far the most enjoyable vehicle that I have ever owned...

Had the front windows done up with some 3M 20% to match the rear. Then promptly realized this morning that I should have had them do the moon roof as well... whoops!

I went out yesterday and bought myself a Sony HDR-AS30V, giving me a reason to go play in the dirt...
