    well i picked up this 2011 F250 around the end of october. finally was able to stash some money away and get it all done up. its probably not gonna be a plow truck with the lift. But its too pretty to push snow anyway i think. Heres a list of the things done to it as well as thanks to the guys that helped with some of the work.

    -The lift is a 4in Radius Arm Lift made by Zone. Its a nice kit for the price and am very happy with how it came out. The lift was installed by John at Johns Garage (garagekeeper). Did a great job and were both very happy how it turned out.
    -The train horn set-up was installed by George (Dissociative). very happy with the fit and finish of the set-up, looks great and is rediculously loud just as promised haha.
    -The bumpers are stock XL bumpers that were stripped down and painted flat black to match by Alex (the new boss 92) that turned out great.
    -the wheels and tires are 20in XD Rockstars with Nitto 35/12.5/20 Tires. loud as all hell but look damn good i think. dont drive it a ton now that i have a company truck so i can deal with it
    -Recon smoked tails, smoked 3rd brake light, smoked mirror lights and smoked clearance lights
    Not pictured is the S&B intake, cobra classic bluetooth cb radio

    Beautiful man, absolutely beautiful. I'm shooting to be in a Super Duty next fall, and want to leave it stock but seeing yours and others is really making me want to do a small lift and 35's on 20's. Truck looks great man, I wish you lots of luck with it.

    Truck looks awesome, I think it would look amazing with color matched grill and bumpers though. That Blue is so nice

    I second the monochrome grill/bumper!!!

    Your 6.0 didn't last too long on the lot either.

    Did you void the warranty?

    If he didn't do anything to the drivetrain and everything was cosmetic he should be good to go. I guess it all depends on the dealer if they want to fight him.
