Did you ever try to adjust the damper pistons?
Not yet, too many other things going on. I'm not really doing anything more with the truck till new garage is in place.

I haven't been on here in a few weeks , but I took off the STX factory lettering which had the red X, and put all black letters (outlined in silver, which match the fender vents perfectly), Detailed it, waxed and used 303 Graphene, after which had to do my wife's Toyota so she got something out of it. I think she is tired of me spending money and time with this truck.
Anyway, I painted my fender bolts with my touch up paint I just received (I adjusted my fenders to line them up better, thereby taking some paint off of the fender bolts....yeah, I know). Let's see, what else...? stubby antennae, black Ford decals over the blue (front grille and tailgate) and that's it I guess.

Only other things I am doing after about $900, are: buy the 2 missing tie downs, Bilstein shocks and paint the tow hooks blue....then you can stick a fork in me, because I will be done. I have never purchased a new vehicle and had so much to do to it..some have been just to make it my own, but most have been because it needed done. Oh yeah, replace stock running boards with Westin Pro Traxx, which I had on my F150 and really liked. Then, that will be it for real. If I am still married, I will have to start tinkering with her car...I know her, she will probably start talking about wanting a new one....dammit

This works like a charm. My princess says I’m spending to much time and money on my truck.

My comeback is, well I could be out with the guys, down the bar, or out in a boat or going to a game or car show. They all cost considerably more in the end than what I have done here. I’m here with YOU right? Don’t you agree? I can try it the other way if you like. I’m easy 😊

I usually don’t get an answer. Or get lucky ether but eh, that’s work too! 🤣

Just do what I do. When they start complaining about all the money you're spending on mods walk over to the closet and point to all her shoes. She'll just roll her eyes and walk away. 🙃

Where did you find letters that are the correct size? I ordered a set off the 'bay. but they were huge! F250 size

Drove it to jury duty. First time it's moved in 3(?) weeks. It should have 1,300 miles on it before the day is over.

I installed the eagle above the garage yesterday, we paid our house off two weeks ago. :D

And I found the best possible parking spot, as long as the tree doesn't fall on it, lol.

Well I'm screwed because I love drinking, I have a boat, and I have a Mustang show car. No wonder my wife is always cross with me! 😄
