Finally got mine done! 6" Pro Comp with traction bars

I am loving the truck. F250 Lariat with every option. Ordered May 22, arrived July 15th and started mods on the 17th! Here is the list:

6" ProComp Stage II with new control arms
ProComp MX6R adjustable resevoir shocks
ProComp rear traction bars
ProComp dual steering stabilizer
5" solid ProComp rear blocks (more of a factory stance)
37x13.50x22 Toyo M/Ts
22x11 XD Monsters (Black)
painted Bushwacker flender flares
front bumper spaced out 1 inch
Recon smoked LED tail lights, 3rd brake light, and side mirror lens
Bully Dog PMT tuner
Spray-in Bullhide liner
Truxedo tonneau cover

I spent a lot of time reading the forums and planning this one. The truck rides awesome and I love the way it all came out just like I had imagined it.

I will be taking some more pictures if you guys want any other views of it.

Thumbs up Nice Job!

Scottiet61,

Great looking truck! Seems like you have made some really good choices with the mods so far; both sharp in appearance and solid structurally. Have you selected an aftermarket exhaust and or intake system yet? If so, could you let us know??

Sincerely,
2008GoldThunder

I thought I'd get your theories, mock them, then embrace my own. The usual.

Look, you got two choices. Engage me in a futile argument then do what I ask, or just do what I asked.

I haven't selected an aftermarket exhaust or intake system. From what I have been reading the improvements in air flow are nearly zero. I am not yet convinced of any products yet (although I would like to be so I get some more power and fuel economy!!)

Anybody correct me if I'm wrong but I have heard that the only way to truly change the performance is to do a DPF delete and go straight pipe.

I love these wheels! Every stop light I pull up to the people next to me just sit and stare at the wheels and tires. I love the look of 37s on 22s. They ride SO nice.

Yea I was torn on 20's or 22's. I couldn't make up my mind as far as looks go and it was close to a grand more to go 22's so that made up my mind for me.

Burnout

I got out today and did a burnout. I did a couple in the past few weeks but I don't want to do too many! So yesterday I rotated the tires and went one last big hoorah! I was sure to get it on camera and video so I can just watch it when I get the urge to roast my $600 tires!!

We decided to lay down a little patch of bleach in front of the tires to try to make more smoke but I don't think it made one bit of difference. The tires actually tore through the top layer of asphalt and you can see the rocks in the last picture!

They are the ones listed on ProComp's website for the 99-06 Super Duty. Part# 72400B

I contacted them about traction bars when i was building my truck and they said they would fit and they do perfect.

Oh yeah... I forgot to add the other pics I took...will do now.
