    Here's my 2003 dump truck. The dealer had it sitting on the lot for a customer that went out of business. This is before I put the stickers on.

    And here's after the sticker work. I ordered them off ebay for the dump truck. 168.00 for all including shipping, I didn't think that was so bad.

    The only thing is that I wanted the diesel, but I settled for the 5.4 liter gas. It does pretty well. We also have a 2004 F150 with the same motor so at least I can cut down on the oil filters on hand.

    Looks great, and even better with the lettering. Hopefully you have 4.10 gears to go with that 5.4 otherwise I fear it could be a dog, but the 5.4 is a good motor. My uncle has one in a F250 crew cab 2wd, with 3.73 gears and pulls a 24' gooseneck trailer with antique tractors on it, pulls good for him (do not use overdrive when towing if automatic).

    Now all you need to do is go back to Ebay and get you some chrome or stainless simulators for your wheels :) Then it would look really killer :)
