    Well guys i joined this site about a week ago, so i figured i would post a few pics of the old battle axe.

    Truck is a mostly stock 2006 Ford F150 XLT
    5.4 with tow package
    2'' Skyjacker leveling kit with heavy duty springs
    Extang Trifecta tonneau cover
    Cobra CB
    Kenwood 7'' Touchscreen DVD with blutooth, xm (for hockey), sirius( for football), and iPod integration.

    Plow is a Western Standard Ultramount- soon to be upgraded to NIghthawk lights.

    P.S. When can i PM, i thought it was after 10 posts.

    Not likley. I just got rid of My 06 F-150........That thing was a snowman's dream. Only problem I had was it couldn't handle a full size plow. Did you beef up the front end or say screw it to the manual?

    hahaha its my little 1/2 ton that thinks its a 3/4. I put a skyjacker 2'' lift in the front to offset sag and added some heavy duty springs.

    nice. I once hauled a kuboto from York, PA to Sebago Lake, ME......all stock. I hardley knew it was there until I was going across the GW and Cross Bronx Expwy (had to get on the brakes a little. Forgot I didn't have electric trailer brakes equipped) opps! No harm no foul though. Great trucks.

    hey, i have an 04 f150 with the crew and i was wondering how much it cost to add the sky jacker kit and if you did it yourself, how hard it was?

    thats not a bad price...does that include te heavier springs too?

    i have been thinking about going that way with my truck....i'm just a little worried about the weight though. how does the truck handle the plow, and have you had to do any extra maintinence or anything due to the plow?

    could you post a pic of the truck with the blade up some time...thanks:D

    That did not include the springs. You can hardly tell the plow is on there, and it looks completely stock with the plow up. I will post pics tomorrow if it is not raining.
