Seems my new 2000 F-150 XLT needs a name! Lets see, history of my vehicles names... my 94 Explorer is Vegas, cause its bright, loud, and lots of fun (and i will loose lots of money on it, LOL). My old 98 F-150 was Babe, like Babe the Blue Ox (since im kinda like Paul Bunyon at 6' 8", LOL). My 92 F-150 was "le blanc bete" whichis french for The white beast. So, heres what this truck is equipped with. It's a 2000 XLT, colored island blue (which is basically dark teal), its got the 5.4 Liter V8 engine (the biggest one offered in the 2000 F-150's), an automatic transmission, the 4x4 off-road package and the tow package, the bed is rhino lined, it's got the single CD player with some custom stereo equipment, got a K&N FIPK (whole new air intake system) going in next weekend, and it's already got true dual exhaust. It's got the Lund bug deflector (nothing but the best) :) and it's got a genuine steel (like manik) black brush guard and a PIAA air dam... in the PIAA airdam is PIAA 520 fog lights, the 510 superwhite driving lights, and on the brushguard is 2 sets of PIAA 80 XT's. It's got grey cloth interior with the husky floormats. For right now I'm not planning on modifying the suspension, I kinda like being able to pull it in to the garage :). Future plans include a black rollbar, with possibly 6 PIAA 80 XT's mounted on top (which would kill pulling it into the garage), and a powdercoated or black rubber tollbox for the rear, and possibly herculining or rhino lining the nerf bars, brush guard and roll bar.
Paris has already been recommended as a nickname,you know city of lights? But I'm not sure, two vehicles named after cities? Plus I wouldn't want anyone thinking this one was dirty and smelled bad... LOL. Here are some pictures of it so far:

All ideas welcome but please,d on't incorporate PIAA into the name like "PIAApet" we've been over that one before, LOL.

The truck looks great Matt, I love it. Keep it up with those lights and pretty soon you can give Mr. Daylighter and his KCs a run for their money.

Since you already have "Vegas", I'd stay with the gambling theme.

RENO, since it's a little less flashy than "Vegas"

JACKPOT, DICE, POKER, KENO, GAMBLER, ROULETTE, CRAPS, WINNER, HIGH ROLLER, CASINO, TAPPED OUT, SURE BET, LUCKY, PIT BOSS, HOLE CARD, CREDIT, BANNED, CHEATER, PLAYER, BANK, DOUBLE DOWN, BLUFF, BINGO, LOTTERY, BIG WINNER, DEALER, SHOOTER, ROYAL FLUSH, MONEY, CASH, PAYOUT, PAYDAY.

Maybe put the new name on a personalized license plate?

HEY......no cheating. I though of it first.

Well how about Reno?? It's a cheap attempt at Vegas, but will never be as big or as good as Vegas. It's all kinda bland with no extra "perks". It's just something there that does the job and adds a few lights to toy with the mind. :)


I assure you the 2000 F-150 will NEVER be a cheaper version of Vegas, LOL. I've spent more on the base stock F-150 then I did with the Explorer for the Explorer itself plus all the modifications. I'm going to post a thread here in a second looking for a name for it.

Sounds like somebodys paying too much.....

Would you like some truck with those PIAA's?

I think you should wait until you do something that warrants the name.

Did you see the pictures? So far it has 4 sets of PIAA's as well as the PIAA 9007 Superwhite bulbs... and probably within a few weeks it'll have another three sets of PIAA's on the roof.
