First get your windows tinted, then upgrade your exhaust, will sound a lot better with your V8.

When I got mine, I started with a level kit, fx4 heads and tails, muffler delete, 20 inch led light bar in the front, then ptm grill and emblems, tires and rims, tonneau cover, changed interior from gray to black, had headrests done from Brady on this forum, now i'm waiting for ptm bumpers to replace the chrome and install flush mounted rigid lights, all this in a years time, just a few ideas for you. there are tons other things that can be done. I may never be done changing this around

Hey,
2011 f150 5.0
I installed stage 2 cold air intake and air aid throttle body spacer. I was surprised how much better the truck sounded.

Unhappy

I have had my 5.0 King Ranch since spring.

I work in construction and agriculture. I've upgraded her with mud and dirt. Lots of dirt. I've added dead bugs to the front end and mirror caps. Over 12K miles worth.

Also pinstripes to the sides, subtle but a nice touch. And my 8 month old Lab puppy has added some interior upgrades of her own.

I'd post pics but wouldn't want the waxers and garage queens to have a heart attack.

Just goes to prove you can have her sparkle with the best and work the same. So don't let the pretty face fool you.

I've owned my truck since August 23, 2014...I've tinted the glass, HD heads and tails, installed WeatherTech floor liners, OEM rear wheel well liners, OEM trailer brake control and created dividers for the console. Next spring, I add an AutoSpring 1 1/2" leveling kit to the front end and a 2" block to the rear.
