Hey Guys,

I am always stopping by the garage section reading what you are all up to. so I figured I should finally post one of my many projects, keep in Mind this is my daily driver so I'm trying to keep it fairly tame.

2008 Ford F150 Limited
5.4L V8 (300hp)
All Wheel Drive
Fully Loaded, Navigation, rear view Camera, Sat Radio, you know all the Basic's
White Sand Metallic paint with color matched 22" rims

The truck was 100% stock when I picked it up on Nov 1st

Mods so far are
30% tint on windows
6000K Hid Kits, head lights and Running light
Tonneau Cover (Soft)
Full Roush Super charger Kit, liquid to air intercooler (Still in the process of being installed)

Pic's to follow

Nice, that's my ideal F150. I love the creamy off-white on the limiteds.

Yeah I always wanted one since they came out in 08. so when I sold my f350 I jumped on this when it popped up for sale. I love the rims too. I'm on the Fence though because I found a set of 24" KMC black gloss slides for a good price...... I may run them for my summer wheels and keep my stock ones for the winter

Clean truck, what kind of power will you make with the supercharger installed?

04-01-2012, 12:11 PM
It's looking like 445hp and 500 torque, running 7.5lbs boost. I'm assuming a 18-25% drive train loss.

Theirs a couple extras you can get but it to bring the boost to 13.5lbs but I'm not sure how long a stock motor would last lol

Very cool that it's your DD. Nice truck dude! :drool:

Thanks man, Technically my Primary driver is my 2011 F150 Ecoboost complements of my work.

I also have a 91 Isuzu Impulse RS that is running a Holset hx35, Haltech engine management, and tons of extras, that and I'm in the process of restoring a 77 F250 Highboy, Once its looking good I'm going to be doing a 12V cummins swap

I guess I have a couple cars I play around with

Sure do, I forgot to add that I installed mud flaps on it right when i got it. I figured all the Beyonders would like to know that

I hate you guys with your HID lights in pickup trucks. I would vote for any politician that promises to crack down on illegal headlight modifications.

Nice truck otherwise.

04-01-2012, 07:01 PM
Thanks man. I know HID's in trucks can be a pain for most drivers in cars, But the stock lights sucked so bad. I figured I would not be hated on to much since the truck is pretty low.

I drive a lifted pickup truck and they are still a pain in the ass for me. I am ready to shoot out every illegal HID conversion I see in vehicles when I'm in my car ha ha.

I have always liked the Limited more then the Harley I think its due to the fact that the Interior is more refined and not plastered with thousands of Harley emblems, but that's just my opinion. Each to their own I guess.

Yeah I know the truck has a 113L tank so I'm sure the summers high gas prices will not be fun, but I typically only drive it a couple times a week at most. so I'm sure the extra couple bucks a tank wont break me. Or so I hope.

Hey guys

I figured its been to long since I posted last and I have got a fair bit completed.

The supercharger Install went fairly well although Roush provided the WORST copy of the instructions ever, we where able to load it up on my lap top and get by. Their where some complications getting my computer back from the tune at Roush the over night process took almost two weeks. Its been 4500 pain free KM's so far though.

I ended up getting Magnaflow Side exit exhaust right away you could just hear the Restriction while driving it so I had to change that, I also got the Roush LED boost gauge Installed, And lastly I got 24" gloss Black KMC Slides with 305/40/R24" tires.

I have updated my Photobucket with some Pic's let me know what you think

Those are some nice wheels.

06-12-2012, 11:03 PM
Now you need to drop it by about 4" or so!


Looks clean!

06-13-2012, 12:35 PM
Thanks guys! I have been looking at may lowering it just a touch
i was thinking 2" front and 3.5" rear but am still on the fence

I agree, those look hot on that truck!! :thumbsup: well done

Loving the truck. Only thing I would do different is smaller wheels. I don't know why, I just like to see more sidewall on a truck.

I have 18's on my 2005 F150 lariat SuperCrew, and I think that's a pretty good size. 20"s are alright too IMO.

Anyway, nice job.

06-13-2012, 01:53 PM
Those wheels are legit! I want to buy some for my truck but would be too worried about curbing them all the time lol.. :nut:

06-14-2012, 10:10 PM
Thanks for all the compliments, I really like the rims I know what you mean about trucks and side wall amounts, but the Limited already come stock with 22"s so i had to go a touch bigger lol.

As for curbing the rims I am sure careful parking and at starbucks....:D
