Default Mod suggestions for my sweetheart

I'm going to take a jump into the mod world next year, so I building my list and suggestions now. So here is a picture of my Sweetheart, Still stock.

What do ya think would be some mods and goodies to add to my list.

I will tell you, I have seen a plenty stuff on this forum that I love and would love to have but I know I got to keep it under control too. I love chrome, so my chrome grille gotta stay. I sure would like some lift, but I'm 5'5, so I don't want to bust my butt getting in and out...ha ha.

The mods that I enjoy the most are:
1. Tuner
2. Bed Rug
3 Tonneau cover
4. Wheels and tires upgraded but not upsized
5. Front bug deflector (flag)

Okay Thanks. Bed Rug, Tonneau cover, and bug deflector added. I have read so much about Tuners on this forum and Franchi explained it to me. Don't know if I need it or not, but I wont exclude that option either. After reading so much about them, it sounds interesting and like it is something that will give you a "WOW" effect when driving.

Yes I do want a rugged style tire too.

A nice inexpensive mod I like is the inlays/overlays that Moody Blue does for the truck emblems. I'm getting ready to put my order in for some of these. You can chose from many colors, and styles to make it your own, and he has good quality materials. It's gonna run me approx. 65 bucks for the fender/tailgate emblems, front/rear ovals, and the flex fuel badge. That ain't much at all. I also think a nice wheel/tire upgrade would look great on your truck. I understand about the lift as my dear Wifey is vertically challenged also, so maybe a set of wheels, and tires would do the trick for you. You could paint to match the door, and tail gate pulls if you like that look. IMHO, your truck is so clean looking you don't want to go so far that you mess it up.

Oh how I love helping others spend their money.........

Not necessarily a lift but how about a leveling kit? Makes it look a little taller but is reasonably cheap and easy.

My 2 fave mods are Magnaflow SI/SO exaust (found it brand new on CL for $150), and remote start, ($250 installed). I snoop around CL every other day or so, you can find some good stuff there.

Chrome 18s and 32s would look clean on your truck

One thing that would look great on that truck is PUTCO Chrome door handle covers and tailgate handle cover... and possible mirror housing covers... looks great with red and would look really nice with the other chrome on your truck. Would also compliment the two tone. They are easy to install and don't look cheesy. I did it on my 08 FX4 and loved it!

I'd say...paint the mirrors to match the truck colour, not the whole thing but the stuff and below the mount arms, keep the area around the light the black...Kinda like this... http://www.f150forum.com/f2/red-truc...6/#post2929090

Level it off too, and a nice aftermarket wheel in a silver or clean coated machined face, chrome is nice but you don't want to overdo it, right now it's the perfect amount.
