    This purchase has been 4 months in the making. Put $ down on it back in december. I cannot even begin to describe how clean it is.

    2000 F450 7.3L 4x4 - 84,600 miles

    now for the "before" pictures

    Upgraded the grill today. Have 2007 lights for it but need upgraded wireharness. Have a long list of small yet noticeable changes/upgrades I will be doing to this truck

    Awesome truck man, congrats. Now just swap a cummins in it when that 7.3 blows and you will be all set.

    I don't put much mileage on my work "only" trucks. It should last me a loooong time before the motor blows. And with my projection #s + my own personal tendencies by 150k it will be gone for a newer truck. Still 100k before needing a rebuild from what I have seen on these trucks

    as far as plows go I have a 8' pro plus w/ wings i might put on. would prefer a wideout or 9'6" mvp w/ wings. have to see how summer plays out & our snow contracts for 2013-14.

    few things that will be on truck by end of month; rear wheel mud covers & whelen 500 series LEDs

    I dropped 5 stacks on it months ago. The guy was having a new floor put on it + I was in no rush to drop the rest & it was sitting in his heated garage all winter so I met him in CT and made the final purchase of it today.

    congrats on a beautiful truck, clean is not the word for that engine bay. I have a 99 7.3 with 345,xxx on the clock all stock, the 7.3 doesn't know the meaning of the word "blow up" lol. plus dump/ work trucks usually don't rack up the miles since its mostly used locally. Did you get the precut grill or did you mod it yourself?

    Looks sweet, i did that same upgrade to my 99 F350 with the new lights, if you dont have the lights yet go onto ebay you can get the new headlights with the wiring harness for 300 bucks. The wiring harnesses's seperate are ridiculous expensive.

    I bought the pre-cut grill. No sure if I am going to tackle the headlights by cutting or buying a new headlight bracket. I have a pair of harley davidson lights which will set it off nicely.

    I found wireharness for $100 on ebay & the headlight holder is about the same.
