Opening the doors reveals a smoothed and painted dash from South County Customs, two-tone leather and suede seats from Roadwire, and black carpet from JC Whitney resting above the Hushmat-covered floor. Billet pieces really added some elegance to the interior and every part was ordered from UPR Products, with the exception of the billet 3-Oval steering wheel and hub from AIM Industries. Keeping with the luxury theme, we installed a SIMCO instrument cluster with chrome rings. Racing style Roush pedals are from JC Whitney and our headliner/visors were wrapped in black suede thanks to 714 Motorsports.
Three 10-inch MTX Thunder Round subs were mounted in a painted fiberglass box and wrapped
Audio is heard from MTX Thunder Axe components powered by two MTX Thunder Elite amps. Three 10-inch MTX Thunder Round subs from Crutchfield are mounted in a fiberglass box built by Audio Toyz in Las Flores, California, and painted by South County Customs. Power is supplied from a Powermaster alternator. A Pioneer AVIC-D3 provides the iPod input, navigation, and DVD output for the 7-inch DEI headrest monitors. Keeping our interior goodies hidden is custom window tint from Erick at Xtreme Tint in Whittier, California. Keeping everything protected is a Viper alarm. We were getting close to completing the truck and our last box to check off was performance.
Lifting the Navigator hood instantly exposes the polished AEM Brute Force intake, Magnuson supercharger, and JBA ceramic headers. What you can't see are the 42 lb/hr Ford Racing fuel injectors, BBK throttle-body, Autolite Iridium spark plugs, and custom computer tune from Steve at Powertrain Dynamics in Huntington Beach. We also added Design Engineering exhaust wrap to the headers and MagnaFlow high-flow cats and exhaust, along with Design Engineering radiator relief and chill charger additives. After Diff Works, in Riverside, California, installed the Precision Gears 4.10 gear set and Auburn Gear limited slip, the truck put down a respectable 301 hp on the Powertrain Dynamics dyno. Not bad for a 4.6L with 94,000 miles on the odometer.
This truck has been in the Truckin' stable for 8 years and during its tenure, it has been airbagged, lifted, lifted some more, and finally static dropped. Three different paint schemes, endless bolt-ons, and mile after mile have been placed on the truck and still it keeps going and going. Another goal of this truck was to show you how a good but neglected truck can remain a good truck with some TLC and some quality parts. We're sure you approve and hopefully you are pumped up to build a truck your way.
