Eric - 2017 Ford F-250 Lariat
I recently just got into the lifted truck scene in 2019 while living in TX. I saw many amazing lifted trucks here in the great state of Texas and wanted to get my feet wet in these style builds.

I am 35 years old, I live in Corpus Christi, TX but am originally from Atlanta, GA. The platform for my build is a 2017 Ford F-250 Lariat with a Platinum conversion. I have been in the automotive scene since I was young. I grew up with my father building custom hot rods and muscle cars for shows, his personal hobby. As a teenager, I was into JDM type builds and grew into customizing Harley Davidson motorcycles in my 20s.
I recently just got into the lifted truck scene in 2019 while living in TX. I saw many amazing lifted trucks here in the great state of Texas and wanted to get my feet wet in these style builds. I am currently active duty in the military and have been for 17 years. On the side I do automotive detailing, wrapping and tinting building up my portfolio and clientele for my side business that I started named Legacy Auto Styling. I plan to open my own show when I retire from the military. I am making use of the last few years in the military to market and brand myself through social media and grow my known presence in the lifted show truck community.
My F-250 is in its starting phase of the build that I have planned for this year. Currently, it has factory gloss black paint but will be getting a custom wrap in the coming weeks with a neo chrome colour flip pattern. The truck is a 6.7 Powerstroke diesel fully tuned and deleted with Ezlink with a straight piped exhaust and aftermarket 7” exhaust tip. All the lariat badges and accessories have been removed and replaced with platinum model items.
My interior has a links well tablet in the dash, LED Bluetooth star headliner and gloss black wrapped trim. My suspension is powder coated with Prismatic Powders Shocker yellow to include my axles. The lift is a BDS Suspension 8” lift converted to a 10” with FOX 2.0 shocks. I have AMP research electric steps. The brakes have all been drilled and slotted.
My bed mat is from Black Armour Bed Mats and I have custom license plate covers from Effenfast. I have 2” spacers on the truck with American Force Wheels “Genesis” 26x 16 Gloss black milled rims. My tires are Fury M/T 38x15.50R26 and have True Spike Black wheel spikes. All of my exterior trim pieces, mirrors and lights have been colour matched in gloss black. In the fender wells, I have 12 white rock lights as well as a Viking Horns train horn kit. The driveshaft on the truck has been fully polished as well.
The name that I have chosen for this build is “LEGACY” in dedication to my business and my sons Greysen and Sebastian. I plan to raise them in the automotive scene just like my father did for me. My truck is still in the beginning stages of the build.
My future plans for is this year are:
Custom grille with truck name “LEGACY” in it, powder coat wheels black and shocker yellow, full coil conversion and reservoirs with airbag set up, custom mats with truck name as well as interior mats. My interior will get wrapped in the neo chrome colour shift to match the planned exterior wrap. I will add 18 more rock lights and white led wheel rings. I will add new piping under the hood all colour-matched with shocker yellow. I will have a custom sub box made for the rear seat and add subwoofers as well as speakers in the truck bed and underneath the truck. I will also add a tonneau cover, a new Geny hitch drop hitch and accessories for it.
I have a large presence on social media and enjoy interacting with everyone from the community. The truck clubs that I am in are Team Billet and Skynet Team.
