2006 Ford F-150

Completely restoring an 11th gen Ford F-150 might seem silly. But it’s hard to argue with the way this one turned out.

The concept of taking an older vehicle and completing restoring it while also adding some custom touches is nothing new. But you typically see this kind of thing happen with vintage rides that’re worth some kind of coin. Never, and we mean never, do you see something like an 11th-gen Ford F-150 redone in this manner. Except here in the F-150 Online Marketplace, that is!

This gorgeous Ford F-150 build was completed by member Jayson David, who’s now offering it up for sale. Needless to say, it’s one of the nicest 11th gens you’ll ever see. He started with a high-mile 2006 SuperCab 4×4 and essentially brought it back to life. Albeit with more goodies than you could ever hope to get from the factory!

This ’06 was treated to a fresh drivetrain from a wrecked donor truck, for starters. Along with the entire interior, electronics, and everything else that was worn. In the process, they also replaced all the stuff that typically wears out on these engines, including the timing assembly and cam phasers. The heads and transmission were rebuilt, and things like the brakes and gaskets were replaced.

The exterior of this Ford F-150 was stripped down, refinished, and painted in Jaguar Lunar Grey Metallic. A 2.5″ lift kit, painted stock wheels, and Wild Country All Terrain 275/65R20 34″ tires give it a nice stance. Lots of custom touches give this old Ford F-150 a much more modern look as well, including smoked lenses and custom graphics.

The interior wasn’t left alone, either. It received nice new black/gray leather seats, touchscreen navigation, and a full refresh. The end result is one heck of a nice truck. Perhaps the nicest 11th gen we’ve ever seen. And while some may wonder if the ends were worth the means, we absolutely think this worn pickup was worth saving!
