If I were to get a light bar tomorrow, I'd probably go with Hanning's. They seem to be built as good as rigid and throw as much light for far cheaper. Plus he's "fairly" local to you guys in Alberta.

I agree with leaving the hood decal. It is the sharpest of the App. Pack. decals and if I had to keep just one that would be it.


I am in no way unhappy with my cheapie bar for sure. It does what I wanted as it illuminates the ditches nicely even being placed behind the grill on my truck. I have seen quite a few F150's on the road with a bar in that opening..... even the ecoboosts which....... well I guess up here is cold enough it probably never really matters that much somewhat obstructing the intercooler. I like it behind the grill on my other truck as it is nice to have it concealed. I honestly like my stuff to stay looking fairly stock.. not much for aftermarket add ons or doo dads... in fact I remove them, like the step bars. Even if they are technically factory in this instance.


The hood decal will stay though, I like that. I just really liked the red piping on the seats and the suede... such a nice touch. I originally didn't want leather and only wanted a cloth truck..... but most of the other interior features I otherwise hoped for are not available outside the 402A package so I thought go for the gusto. They reluctantly knocked $17000 off the sticker price on this truck too so I suppose that helped. Nobody wants the 6.2 lol. I really should order an exhaust. Such nice headpipes and a 3.5" Y...... to pee shooter. If a stock super duty exhaust fit I would run it..... but the MBRP single 3.5" doesn't seem too bad. I will get it powdercoated black by a friend of mine for basically nothing so then it won't rust with the 409 S.S.

What's kept me from getting a 20'' light bar is that I like my current setup as a) It is adequate for my needs and b) It is unique. I have seen lots of trucks with 20'' light bars in the bumper but nothing with the same setup as my truck. If you haven't seen it here is an outdated picture of my setup:



The reason it's outdated is that I took off the two Dually's that are down low, beside the license plate bracket. I'm debating about selling that set or mounting them on the back bumper for backup lights.

Any kind in particular you are looking for? I grabbed a set of nitto terra grapplers that are that size recently. Never been mounted or used. Not sure if I'm actually going to use them or not.

Thinking about these rims (22" and same rubber as the Limited). As soon as winter lets up. Should have Platinum rims with the stock Pirelli rubber and Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT (mounted on rims) for sale shortly.

I'd advise against the perellis. I run them on 2 sets of 22s and they are far from the best. Decent summer tire but they offer very little rim protection if any. Especially if your going to run a 275. I'd probably go with at least a 285 or at most a 305. ( 305 will fit but will rub on mud flap screw heads if equipped and only when turning while reversing lol). Cooper zeon Ltz look pretty sweet on 22s. Only come in a 305/40/22.
