I call this cheap security.

I took an old base model radio I had, removed the face, and glued the volume **** and lcd to the back side of the face. The buttons were attached to a separate piece as well, and had to be glued. Then I cut everything smooth on the back side, and glued a piece of cardboard to the back to prevent scratching my nice radio. The only thing I have to do now is to figure out how I want to secure it to the front of my Pioneer double din. I have thought about velcro, but I don't think it would look too clean. I also thought about magnets, but I don't want to harm the LCD at all. Any ideas?

The rear windows are tinted, I do plan on doing the same with the fronts.

Yea, it bugged me from the start, but I knew it was an easy fix. A few friends told me to grab a billet grill, but I feel they're played out. I was considering painting it white too.

Last weekend I threw a pair of FX4 decals on the truck. I know its not an FX4 but I love the look of the decals. The problem is that I put them on too far back, so I will probably end up pulling them off and either trying another set out, or finding a different style of 4x4 decals. Also, does this truck tend to sit higher than other F150's? I seem to be taller than all of the Fords with the same body style, and I was only about an inch shorter than a newer Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab 4x4.

I am also thinking of removing the pin stripes, I've never been a fan of them. Are the door guards double sided taped on, or are they clipped on? I want to get rid of those too.
