Default Westin 3'' Bull Bar in Black

This is the product. I also bought the license plate relocator since it's required in TX to have tags on the front. You WILL lose your tow hooks if you add this product.

Default Blacked Out Badges

Next, I blacked out the badges with plastidip. Will consider removing the badges and painting them in the future but was curious about this product. It's fine for now.

This is the Leveling Kit I chose to install. It's a Procomp 2" leveling kit. The truck is now leveled and still has a quality ride.

I also purchased the White Night reverse lighting system. It's expensive for a lighting kit at $129 or so for everything- the kit, 7 pin replicator, and plug-n-play system. This will provide easy installation, no wire splicing, and a "stock" look.

It has a toggle with 3 modes that will allow Manuel use, automatic, or off.

I purchased the model that allows you to use your trailer hitch just by removing the logo on the center of the system.

Got home from work and got it all installed in no time. For the 2012 f-150 you'll need the relocater kit which moves your 7/4pin to the left four inches. Also the plug-n-play makes this process simple and quick with no wire splicing, just a direct plug in.

I highly recommend this product for anyone with dark tint on the back window. These 55w lights are bright and serve their purpose!
