Question Exterior upgrade ideas

I'm new to this forum as well as owning my first truck and I have to say I'm more than happy with my choice! Now I'm looking for some ideas on what I could make some changes on my truck. It's a 2000 F150 XL Triton V8. Recently just put chrome Nerf bars on and Flow master true dual exhaust along with halo projector headlight and tail lights. Any other ideas?

I like the truck, but I'm not much for those style headlights. I like the Lightning/HD style lights better.

Your truck definitely has some nice possibilites. Welcome aboard.

Paint the bumper pad and grille surround white to match the truck, and ditch the bug guard those all will make her look a little cleaner

Okay so take bug reflector off, paint bumper. Anything else? I'll upload more pictures tomorrow with my new rims and tires and see where we can go from there. Does anyone else think the truck looks to much like a work truck being white and all? I've been trying to do a black and white theme to make it look less like that. Thank you for the welcomes glad I signed up

Is your 2x4 or 4x4? I see the fx4 decal but that isnt an fx4 truck. Im just being curious to help you out on ideas. Oh yeh and I would look at bedlining or painting the toolbox black

I dont think it looks like a work truck. I like the black and white theme idea too.
