My 2005 F150 supercrew has 71,000 on it, Steve says. I call this truck The Black Mamba. It has a 2.5" leveling kit with new Bilstein Shocks. The wheels are 20x9 Hoss XD Series rims warped by 35 12.50 20 Nitto Trail Grapplers.

It has N-Fab light bar with 3 6" Baja lights. I have Harley Davidson headlights installed and all L.E.D. taillights and light strip. Inside the interior of this F150 I have an edge programmer custom set. An Alpind double din stereo with Alpine type R speakers and 2 12 inch kicker cvt subwoofers. I also have weathertech floormats.

Why is this Ford F150 so special for you?
I did everything to it myself. Since I was little I always dreamed of having a truck with this body style.

What is unique about this truck?
I did all the aftermarket accessories in it myself. It is also resembling my dream truck from when i was a kid.

When did you buy it?
I bought this F150 truck a little over a year and a half ago.

In what condition was it before and what modifications did you do to it?
The truck was completely stock other then a leveling kit on it. It only had 49,000 miles when I bought it. Everything I listed off, I did to it myself.

Any interesting particular story associated with the truck?
This truck never leaves girls indifferent. I have also never lost a race nor have i ever been stuck.

Is there anything else you would like to add about your truck?
I will be adding a six inch lift. New bumper and exhaust here in the summer.

Never lost a race with a stock 5.4L that has been lifted? Either this guy is 16 and has been racing grandmas on the way to bingo or he has never raced anything comparable to his truck.
I thought something similar. I have a stock 06 Hemi Quad Cab that would change that unless he has mods that he isnt disclosing.
