Now that's actually one of the things I like about that style.

Agreed on the FX4 tails. A lot more affordable than I had assumed too.

Saw a Raptor today which is the first time I've ever seen one in person. Sure do like those steps and so did my wife. But man are they expensive.

Got my new taillights installed this morning. Pouring down rain outside so no good pictures but they sure do change the look of the back.

After a timeout due to deciding we are going to move, getting our house ready, listing it, and having our first showing this morning, I'm back to work on the truck. Finally got my Paramount Restyling grill installed with an emblem I bought off a member here. The emblem was REALLY easy to install on the grill--the alignment posts went right in the mesh no fuss and I just used 4 stainless screws into stout areas of the backing of the emblem to attach it.

I have a set of FX4 headlights that should be here today according to Fedex tracking and Monday its going in to get the level kit installed. Had planned to do that myself initially but with the plan to move I just haven't had time.

The move might necessitate a change to the truck. A lot of the houses we are looking at have pretty tight garages. I may end up changing out the bull bar for a light mount or maybe install a light bar behind the grill. That 6-8" could make a difference in being able to walk around the truck.

FX4 headlights showed up. Those are almost too easy to install.

That level looks great. You have a very nice truck. Makes me think I should have got white instead of black.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the Maestro/Kenwood combo. The only minor negatives are a fairly long delay between pressing the voice button and hearing the Sync prompts and the fairly long "boot" time for the radio when the truck turns on.
