Here's a side-by-side comparison of where my truck started and where it is now.

This started out as your standard "Lariat" edition truck from '98. Since I got it in August of 2010, I've...

- Swapped the front grille/valance/bumper for a 2003 style;
- Added a 99-04 Mustang style ram-air hood;
- Put 2 1/2" of lift (in this pic, the 6" BDS will go on soon);
- 33 x 12.5 tires on 17x8 Eagle Alloys
- Totally rebuilt the stereo system - Pioneer touch-screen head unit, 2 Rockford Fosgate amps, MTX subwoofers, Infinity speakers, and Dynamatted the roof and floor (still need to do the doors yet);
- Added a K&N cold air intake (more performance coming in the fall, I hope);
- Had custom badging cut for the theme of the truck by Billet Badges out of Southern California;
- and a lot of other little things that aren't registering just this

It's been in a few of the local "show and shine cruise-ins" and made it's big-stage debut last year at the Bloomsburg 4x4 Jamboree and Carlisle Truck Nationals. I've attended Truck Nationals since '09, but last year was the first time I had something to show. I didn't place at either event, but that's okay because I just do it for the personal enjoyment and satisfaction of knowing I've brought my best to the table.
