Since Ford didn't make one in '04 (but some dealers made their own) I decided to make one myself. I have been working on this for a while, but I should be done with it next week.

Stay tuned!

So far what I have done:

Removed the gray two-tone paint from the body.
Lowered front and back.
Addapted the Ertl F-150 wheels.
Addapted the Ertl spare.
Detailed the undercarrage.
Painted the seat inserts silver with a red pinstripe.
Chromed the nerf bars (running boards).
Added a cargo extender for the Ertl F-150.

Still need to do:
Add HD decals to the body and maybe seats.
Maybe detail the engine or swap the Ertl supercharged one in it.
Put is back together.

Great job Acisne - you are certainly not skimping on the details.

I can't wait to see the finished product!

I might make them myself or see if a guy from the Pub can make them.

I forgot, I might chrome the grill but I am not sure how that is going to look.

I like the black grille.
Maybe if it was gloss black it would look cool too :cheers

Maisto is doing the 2004 HD F250/350.
That one is based on the "Super Duty" pickup which is completely different from the F150.
The Excursion is based on the Super Duty :wink

Wow I cannot wait to see the finished product!Sounds like it will looks amazaing. According to Designs in Motion the Maisto F 250's are instock in both HD and XLT trim. I have yet to see them on ebay or anywhere else. Usually ebay has them before anyone else.

I like the looks of that. How about cutting off the two horizontal bars in the middle of the grill and backing the whole thing with mesh? Thats a FX4 the offroad tuned F150. If you look at the more luxury styled Lariat version you can see the grill is a major styling difference and the Harley Davidson edition is all about styling.
