Default JKM 12 XLT transformation to 13 FX & Mods

Finally got around to taking some pics of my truck to post on this forum.
Got this truck about 14 months ago and has been my daily driver since. Before anyone asks why I didnt buy an FX4 to start with, the local dealer only had XLTs, HDs, Platinums and Raptors in 2012. I really liked the looks of the FX4 but they were not available at the time, so I bought the XLT and the journey started

Mods so far:
13 HID Headlights
13 Fx4 Grill
Raptor style LED grill lights
XD BOMB 20" 0 offset
35" cooper MT
1" Daystar level (trimming involved)
Bushwacker Extend a flares
HD tail lights with painted edges
Cree LED reverse light
ANZO smoked mirror reflector with LEDs
PTM Front & Rear Bumpers
PTM mirror caps
Flat Black painted side steps
Raptor smoked 3rd light
DDM Tuning LED fog lights
FX4 appearance pkg embelms
5.0 custom painted rear emblem
FX4 appearance pkg hockey stripe
White F-150 LED door sills
DeeZee tailgate assist
Drop in bedliner
TonneauPro cover
Shortened stubby antenna
red/black ford emblem decals
Gloss black pillar covers
3.5 to 4.5 black exhaust tip

Still to come:
6" lift
custom leather interior
AMP research side steps
Roof mount 50" LED bar (debating)

It was raining today and I didnt get a chance to wash her before taking photos so excuse the pics

Feedback welcome!

Where/how did you get the red and black ford emblems on the grille and tailgate? Did you paint them black first then buy the red/black decal and put it over that?

Did you find someone to paint your bumpers over the chrome? This is going to be my next mod, and I am looking at all options...besides buying all new bumpers. Vinyl wrap is emerging as the leader at the moment. Can't find anyone local that wants to paint over the chrome.

Thanks

Plastidip works well and is very inexpensive
