    Good looking truck. I recently purchased a 55 F500 flat bed that I'm planning to do basically what you've done. Where did you get your new F100 fenders?

    Looks great.
    Can't believe you didn't put the Brockman Husky back on the hood. LOL

    Finally got racks on my truck that I am happy with. We made a 250 mile trip to the produce auction in Springs,PA (where the pumpkins came from). Also travelled to ridgetop orchard in Fishertown along with many more miles of country roads. Truck ran great. I really like it a lot better with these racks on it, much more useful.

    Last thing I need to find are long arm mirrors. The F100 mirrors don't work well with racks on.

    The truck went to work last week to haul lumber. Hauled 350 feet of 4/4 white pine and thirteen treated 6"x6"x8' posts.

    She's a real workhorse!

    I love this thing! What's a safe cruise speed in this truck?

    Great looking truck. IMO, the black wheels aren't doing as much for the overall look as a contrasting color would.

    I very much agree with this comment..........

    I also understand it's your truck and your call.....

    Nice truck in any case.
     
  16. To me, I'm the exact opposite... I think the black wheels really set the truck off.

    55 is a good cruising speed for this truck but it will cruise 60 if needed

    Black wheels are staying:D. I can't think of another color that would look good. The white wheels were hideous!


    Thanks for all the nice comments
