    Was a nasty day today due to the remnance of the Hurricane so I decided to go down to the storage lot and vacume out a few of the trucks and take a photo or two with my new nifty POS El Cheapo digital camera! Enjoy.

    The work truck is a 2001 F-350 that we took off the pickup bed and put on a flat bed...not sure how long I will keep it like that but as of now I have a twin tank chem sprayer in the back so its kinda handy. Its a 7.3 powerstroke diesel .

    I like the bed on the 2001, how does it work compared to the regular bed?

    Well it works great considering how cheap it was. I traded a old clunker truck I had in the storage facility for the bed. The bed started out as a 14 foot landscape ramp bed. I didnt like running the mowers up and down it all day long so we cut the dove tail off and made it into the 10 ft. flat bed that you see now with the cage.
    The cage makes it convenient to lock up tools. The only down side is anything locked in the cage gets weathered quickly out in the rain. The bed space is nice it is only 8 inches wider than a normal pickup bed but it also has no wheel wells to contend with.
    It's handy for the fact of you don't have to be overly protective of throwing things in from the side worrying if your going to scratch the bed of your truck.

    I was thinking of having a custom paint job on the front of my truck. Just think of Chameleon $ signs floating down the front of the truck to the back doors in GREEN. Kind of in a flaming pattern put only made up of $ signs that can be seen from one angle and not any other.

    K&N stage 2 intake,
    Edge with 5 step power module box with Attitude monitors,
    custom 5" twin stacks,
    Swamps F*ME 160 injectors (still testing), tends to want to blow head gaskets
    Snows custom Methenol/water injection,
    SDHQ's guages with carbon fiber tripod (still trying to drill in the probes for the guages),
    And soon to be testing the first one off twin turbo settup.
    13.6 qtr. mile (before 37" tires installed)

    This winter im sending the tranny off to either TS performance of BD to have it built up to take more HP's. Right now I have the tranny up to its maximum load so I can't even start testing the twin turbo or really running the injectors to their fullest potential without getting a built tranny, new stronger rods & titanium head studs/gaskets.

    How was that 14 ft landscape body on that truck? Was it too long? Twin turbos??? You should have bought a Dodge/Cummins if you wanted to make some power!!
