Thanks for the ideas folks, made me think of a few more things I definitely want to try and get somewhat soon. LineX spray, (whether I go for a tonneau or shell, it'd obviously be easier to do that first, haha), as well as a RanchHand bumper guard.

Not at all.
MSRP - 55,040
Trade-in Rebate - 750
Some other Rebate - 1,500
Dealer Instant - 7,283 (Total Reduction) - (9,533) Final Sales Price - 45,507
Got 8k for my '07 Charger, which I thought was fair for a stripped base model with 85k miles on it. So that brought me down to 37,507, helping to reduce my sales tax liability as well.
Overall, I'm more than sure many have gotten much better deals. But for a guy like me, who "never" gets below sticker..... Paying 9533 under, without any haggling, I was absolutely ecstatic, haha. And at the end of the day, I'm the one that has to live with the price, so it's all good.
Anyway, swung by my local LineX and ARE dealer. Next Monday I have a 9am appt to get the standard no-frills black spray done on the bed. Saved $50 since I've got the step-bumper, so they're not touching the tailgate. I'm just going with their original spray too, since it won't be exposed to the elements that often, because......
They also ordered my ARE LSX Ultra Tonneau cover. That will take about 3 weeks they said.
Sooo excited about starting to piece her together the way I want. I may have drooled a bit while there and staring at the grill guards, but that is going to have to wait a bit.
nice truck, the cabin looks like a high end luxury car, it looks...like, like, mine.
i agree with Silver Surfer, first weekend i had my 5.0, i got drunk and took off the FX4 bed decals. cleaner look IMO.

Beautiful truck...love the seat colors. Like my X5. Check out rugged ridge for mats...fit in mine perfectly. Du-Ha for back seat storage and I love my swing cases in the bed for storage. Somebody mentioned it already but the Console Vault is a nice piece as well...good luck and happy modding!
