Tow Monster
Allen Stockman writes that his '05 Ford F-250 V-10 isn't as seriously modified as some of the trucks he sees in 8-Lug, but that's because he uses the truck for serious towing. He has 20-inch V-Tech wheels with Goodyear Wrangler tires, a bunch of chrome, a Superchips Flashpaq, Flowmaster exhaust system, and more.

No Worries, It's All Good
Michael Sohn has done a lot to his Ford F-350, but he can't pick out one favorite mod, as they are all good. Michael lives in Pasadena, Maryland, and his truck has a 2.5-inch lift in the front from Top Gun Customz. Upgrades include a K&N AirCharger, CFM Plus intake manifold, and a Gibson Dual Extreme exhaust. Recon was tabbed for smoked taillights, smoked LED mirror lights, a Line of Fire lightbar, and a bunch more stuff.

New Car Smell
Ben Johnson likes to point out that his Dodge Ram 2500 has never been in the rain—heck it's never even been driven on a wet surface. He keeps the seats covered and the truck is as clean as when it was new. Here's his speed list: Source Automotive 62/14 over S480 twins, Hamilton Diesel cam, ZZ Custom Fabrication ported and polished head, ZZ Custom Fabrication intake, Griffin aluminum radiator, 250hp injectors, HTT exhaust manifold, Edge drag computer, FASS 150, 7-inch Skyjacker Long-arm suspension, Mag-Hytec diff covers, and a double-deep tranny pan.

True Blood
Colin Cooley hooked up with us on Facebook and we encouraged him to send us photos of his '06 Ford F-250 King Ranch. Here it is! The True Blue metallic truck has a custom-tuned SCT from Eric at Innovative Diesel (and a custom-tuned FICM from the same place), and an AEM Brute Force intake with a DryFlow filter. In addition, MBRP's 4-inch exhaust flows into a 5-inch tip, A CFM Plus SmallMouth intake elbow boosts power, and Isspro Performax gauges keep track of everything. Diamond 17 Karat wheels sport Toyo Open Country mud terrains and traction bars from Farmboy Fabrications keep it all together. Recon smoked taillights, mirror lights, and a third brake light add to the good looks of the truck.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Janice "Lady Dove" Payne hails from Yorktown, Virginia, and loves her '84 Fleetwood Pace Arrow with the 6.2L diesel engine so much that she wants all 8-Lug readers to see it. Janice is a musician and has had some awesome road trips with this motorhome.

And Mark would like to point out that the EGR system "completely fell off the truck."
