Well look what came in the mail today!! SCT Livewire TS, courtesy of Franchi. Writing the tune to the truck as we speak! Sooo excited. Starting out with the SCT 87 tune, then filling up with Petro Canada 94 octane and burning through a tank of that on the 93 octane tune. Then I'll probably try some custom tunes from Unleashed and a tow tune from 5*

I thought I'd update my build thread since I've done quite a few things to my truck in the past few months.

FXR Retrofit projectors completed (not without problems!)


Rancho QuickLIFT 2" leveling system. Love it!!



Darker 20% tint on the front windows:

Thanks DD! Your current FX4's stance gave me a little bit of inspiration.

Mods up next are some GTS smoked taillight covers and trailer tow mirrors.

Thanks!

Not sure what brand. Had a shop in California do it while I was down there. No green tinge like the previous stuff had.

Buying a used set from [MENTION=102468]lilcrazyone[/MENTION]. Need 'em for pulling my enclosed trailer. Just can't see around it. I might try and see if I can make them power fold somehow by opening them up and playing with some servo motors. Couldn't care less about power extend, but power fold would be a huge asset for fitting into my garage bay.

Tinted my front emblem with Vht nightshade today. Not all black, and leaves a nice smokey finish on the chrome while blacking out the blue area. Will be doing the same thing on my rear emblem and the ecoboost/F-150 badges.
