This is going to be a slight build as it's my daily driver and work horse. It's being set up as a long range traveler with the ability to do some trails.
Currently it is stock except for the added lights 42" behind the grill, ditch lights, and the bright red cap.
The plan forward is new tires, 2nd battery, 110 ports in the bed, and some extra gas mounts. Other things will be added as I go along. I am adding a sticker from everywhere I've been on the cap. If you see me around say hi or add your own sticker to the cap.

Welcome aboard. Glad to see another f150 on here
Thanks!
I'm still getting started on it I definalty want to do some off roading that is planned. My new AT tires should be in this week after I discovered that highway tread is junk in the slush. The dent from sliding off the highway is gonna stay as a reminder. And as much as I want to lift it slightly i keep ending up in parking garages with 6ft clearance which it just squeaks by with.. 20181229_141237.jpg

Awesome truck, I have a 13’ F150. I’ve taken mine on some trails that had me white knuckle, impressed to see what it can really do with a simple suspension upgrade, Blisten 5100 and 33” K02 tiresIMG_6574.JPG

I just added new tires in stock size. General Grabber ATx. I want to do the 5100 but I park in 6ft clearance garages which makes lifting a problem.

Also got the switch panel labeled gotta just mount it better.

Finally got around to installing the RotoPax 1.75 gal containers I got for cheap on FB. Sorry for the not so great picture I snapped it as soon as it was mounted.
Also I have now put about 1300 miles on the General At/X tires. They are a bit louder than the stock highway tread but not too bad. Gas mileage went down but that was to be expected going from P series to Load range E. Traction with these things are great I find I don't have to use 4wd as much in the snow. Haven't had a chance to mud test them yet gotta find some trails around here (suggestions welcome).
