Love it.


Welcome to the thread!

I bought the truck originally as an F-650 Pick-Up truck over the internet from a guy out east who was using it as a show-truck for his Custom Choppers business.

It seems the business wasn’t doing so well, and so I was able to pick-up this 1yr old truck with less than 7,000 miles on it and $30,000+ less than he bought it new!

there’s lots on eBay though…


(it’s amazing how ‘cheap’ they are now that the bottom has fallen out on the luxury truck market. You can get a brand new, 2007, pre-emissions, custom crew cab F-650 for less than $40k – that’s almost less than a new diesel F-350 at a dealership!)

If you’re willing to have a more utilitarian interior, there’s even better deals to be had by buying a used moving/landscaping truck with a crew cab.

For those who missed pages 1 – 26 of the thread…

Here’s what it looked like when we started:

Kurt likes Dadda’s new truck. The rule is: He’s allowed to drive it when he can reach the pedals.

…and this is what it looks like “today”:

still not done yet, but we’re getting there!

PS – I like your Frontier build. If you’ve got the time, I’d highly recommend Layne Wright at Denver Offroad Bumpers, he makes AMAZING custom front/rear bumpers out of aluminum and can build anything you want. I had a great experience designing / building mine with him. PM me for his contact details if you want.
