    Fixing Up an F250

    So my father is fixing up his older 2001 F250. He had a nice Bronco for putting around in, but for fishing and towing and stuff he wants to fix up his f250. He can do a lot of the work himself in his shop (has laid down insulation and pulled out seats on his brother's f250. But right now we are just looking at things to add that would make life easier for an older guy. Things we may not think about improvement wise. So. Anyone drive a big truck? F250? Anything we should look into we may not think about? Just seeing what is out there

    I am going to suggest a trailer hitch camera or reverse camera. Not that he can't do it without one. Lol

    A wet bar. Fish always get bigger that way.

    I was gonna suggest a heated driver's seat, but then, you're in Florida. Sounds like a fun project. Hope it goes well.

    The best thing you can do for an F250 is replace it with a Chevy...

    1. Is it lifted? Side steps / running boards.

    2. Winch.

    3. The rear camera was a great idea.

    4. Mirror extensions.

    5. Some folks like sun visors. https://www.streetsideauto.com/p/jsp...iABEgIjmvD_BwE

    12volt trailer jack and 12volt 3500 pound winch on trailer. Extendable mirrors on the truck. 'Fat Bob" knobby tires on the truck for good traction. 12volt refrigerated cooler for beer. GPS. One of those new lithium ion jumper packs and jumper cables, although the jumper packs usually work great. An empty 5 gallon gas can/jug. 225 piece tool kit under the seat. That should do it. Maybe some stink bait.

    Reverse camera in a F250? .......................... Blasphemous!

    Those belong on a Prius parked in front of the local Starbucks.
