After having my truck for almost a year I thought I would post of what all I have done so far:
Sound system- Kenwood ddx418 head unit (came with truck), 2 10" hertz subs (ES 250D.5), 500w rockford Fosgate amp (Punch Series P500-1bd 500w), hertz speakers in front (Energy ECX 570.5 two way coaxial), and kenwood speakers in rear (Excelon KFC-X683C). I went with Kenwoods in the back because they were on sale and were still an upgrade from stock speakers.
HID headlights- I went with the Xenon 6000k 55w hi/low HID's because that's what a local shop here sold and they installed them. Super bright and have yet to have any troubles with them.
Chrome- I then removed all the chrome on the truck. Removed the door handle pieces, under trim, painted the F-150 emblems black, and powder coated bumpers.
Powder coated bumpers- I had a local guy powder coat my bumpers for a good deal. I got them gloss black to match the under trim on the truck.
Bull bar- I got a Smittybilt bull bar because I liked the black skid plate more than the silver ones on other brands. I figured it would look better on my truck as well. Plus it was cheaper than the others which is nice.
Tires- I had to get new tires after owning the truck for a couple months. I went with 265/65/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers because they were on sale at a local shop here in town when I got them.
The truck did also come with some stuff which I will list below:
Tint- When I bought the truck it came already tinted. Not as dark of a tint as I would like but still tinted.
Head unit- It came with the Kenwood ddx418 head unit which was nice. Didn't have to spend more money on a new one for my sound system.
Level kit- It did come with a level kit which was nice.
I have also done a decent amount of mechanical word which wasn't expected and has caused me to put a lot of the stuff I was going to do on hold:
Rebuilt the rear end- I had to rebuild the rear end with 159,xxx miles on it which was a surprise and expensive repair.
Lower ball joints- I had to replace the lower ball joints in the front.
Thermostat- Replaced the thermostat because it got stuck shut.
Brake caliber and pads- I had to replace the caliber and brake assembly I believe the mechanic said in the front passenger side and do pads all the way around.
Things I am planning on doing:
Wheels- Looking at doing wheels next possibly. Thinking I'm going to go with TIS 535b 18x9.
Weathertech floor mats- Wanting to get Weather Tech floor mats for my front only. They seem to be super nice and fit good.
LED light bar- Wanting to put a LED light bar on my bull bar. Probably a Rough Country 20 inch seem to be a decent light for a good price.
Thanks for checking out my build so far. Hope you enjoyed it, any input is great on what you think or what I should do to make it look even better.
