Hey, welcome to the board! Clean looking truck. What's the rest of the build plan, tires, t-case, bumpers, etc?

Do I spot a roll cage inside by the driver front a-pillar? I see it's already on 8 lug but looks like a SF rear and 44 / 10 bolt front?

It's a cool platform to build off, good aftermarket support and lots of parts interchangeability from other bow-tie products. We're full size friendly around here too so we won't think you're crazy for building such a big truck :thumb:

Welcome aboard! For sure you should start a project thread.

Don't forget to get rock sliders on your todo list!

Glad to see another square body around! Was worried I'd be the odd man out at this Ford party!

*EDIT* - didn't see that this was from a few months ago. Just went through your build thread (rad!). Looking forward to meeting you at Hollister next weekend.
