Got the filters mounted. Sucks I have to remove battery every time but There really wasn't room anywhere else. Had to make a few adjustment to the battery tray. But worked out good.

Re: Project Merc....

F150 inner boot works good. And looks nice enough for me. The rubber boot part is super thick so should be good to keep the noise down.



And having 2 wheel drive and 4 low is awesome. I had to hold brake cause the thing was trying to climb my driveway in 4 low. LOL Love it!!!

Now I just need tires to get here and some headlights. Sliders and front bumper this week. Getting closer!

Re: Project Merc....

I was trying to see how much drop I had. I am 6'2" and you can see it is at my chin. And I ran out of jack.



31s on it right now...
