Check out this thread on the forum for your lower grille: http://www.f150forum.com/f38/2013-li...215562/index8/

I haven't seen the one he is going to do for the Platinum's but he claims it will match.

Nice tires you got there. If I were you I would check the clip that holds the ebrake cable under your truck. I was putting my new exhaust on and saw the clip was actually on the inside of the tire rubbing fulltime. If I didn't catch it there would have been trouble. Zip tie took care of it. Tip of the Day!!

Well I finally picked up my platinum! Got it Saturday morning and drove right from the dealer in Corvallis and drove up I-5 to PDX, a disrance of 100 miles. Not expecting much from the getgo before break in, i got 20.0 mpg right on the nose!

This truck rides like a dream and i am so happy with my purchase. I spent yesterday afternoon getting a coat of wax on it (mother's). I have collinite 845 on the way but couldnt wait.

Husky weather beaters should arrive today and may order a few more goodies next week.

App is giving me an error when trying to upload pics but wil try to get them up shortly.

That's a beauty gallant. I remember before the monsoon season arrived that mine was clean like yours. Enjoy.
