Stage 3's 2005 F150 5.4L SuperCab XLT 4x4 Project TruckThis 2005 F150 is incredibly clean and tidy for its age and mileage. Sure enough, we plan on ruining that with a whole bunch of modifications. Despite our evil intent, the plans for this F150 are pretty tame, as it's going to be a daily driver as well as a decently capable off-road rig. So far, a 4" lift, new wheels and tires, and a few other goodies are its bright future.
The BasicsFirst, the truck got an Airaid SynthaFlow Cold Air Intake Kit, an Edge CTS Tuner, Carriage Works Upper and Lower Billet Grilles, and a BAKFlip VP Tonneau Cover.
Lift, Wheels, and TiresNow, we being the off-road connoisseurs that everyone knows and loves, we couldn't just leave this thing sitting around at stock ride height like a big lump. So we grabbed ourselves a Zone 4" Suspension Lift Kit, a full set of 20x9" Fuel Hostage Wheels, and four Fuel 35x12.50" Gripper M/T Tires to instantly change the look and feel of this awesome truck. After we got everything installed, the end result was nothing short of amazing. While a 4" lift kit isn't the tallest thing in the world, it was more than enough to transform this F150 into something much tougher and more aggressive.

The most recent addition to our 2005 F150 Project Truck was a new front bumper with fog lights to replace the original which was damaged in an accident. The silver lining was that we threw some Rigid Industries 6" E-Series Off-Road LED Light Bars into the stock fog buckets, and they looked damn impressive both at night and during the day. We also threw in some LED Replacement Front Turn Signals and Reverse Lights from Diode Dynamics to replace the fading stockers. For good measure, we added a TruXedo B-Light to the bed. We then took the truck up to Flagstaff, Arizona, and tossed it around in the snow and mud for good measure.
