Upgrading the Tow Rig
Shortly after I bought my truck I started to mess with it because I can't leave anything stock. I have a sickness and it involves messing with everything with a motor.
When I started messing with my truck I did a 2.5" leveling kit and air-bag helper springs in the rear and did a little bigger tires and different wheels. Well I noticed that since my wheels are considerably wider then stock I was flinging rocks down the side of my truck. So I added fender flares. Then I realized that the truck wasn't fast enough. Now I know it is a truck and it isn't suppsed to be fast but I used "I need more power for towing" as an excuse to buy a tuner. So here is my truck and the progress we have made so far. Not done yet.
Fuel Off-Road "Hostage" Wheels with 295/60 Nitto Terra Grapplers. Diamond fender flares, Tuff country level kit
After. Recon Lighting "Super Duty" letters, smoked cab lights and mirror turn signals.

Psst, you forgot to mention the pistol LOL.
Good looking truck and upgrades.
Interesting to see you went with Spartan vs H&S as thats the one the majority of Ford guys go with.
I have H&S tuner, S&B CAI, 5inch straight pipe slightly larger tires on stock rims, air bags on the rear, just haven't mounted my air compressor.
Good looking rig though man.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

Nice looking rig. It's tough to leave a diesel alone when you know so much power is sitting on the table!
Looks like I can count on you if a zombie outbreak happens?2006 Supra 24SSV - Traded

Good choice on the Spartan as the DOT/EPA just laid heavy regulations on H&S that limits removing the CAT and DPF. I have the H&S on mine but it was just before the DOT/EPA hammered them. I have a 5" downpipe back because the downpipe is hard to get to on the 6.4l engine. Looking to do an EGR delete here soon, just know there is some work involved and haven't felt like doing in this heat yet.
If I was to do it again though I think I might pick the Spartan as this is a powerstroke only product so I think the support is a little better.Rusty

Good looking truck.
ERG, DPF deletes and the H&S was the best thing I ever did to my truck. So much fun to drive.
PWI as usual...
