Default 2012 platinum's build thread

Well I've finally sat down to make a build thread. Here is my 2012 Platinum Screw. Ecoboost, 3.55 rear, pecan leather interior, all options including moonroof, and sliding rear glass, premium sound with factory sub. ive had her for almost 2 yrs now. its been a fun build, but she's a long way from being complete. I hope everybody likes it. any questions, feel free to ask-

Here she is the day we brought it home from the dealership,

I rode it like that for quite awhile, then a few other members started getting lifts, and we all know what happened next.... 6" RCX lift! a couple weeks later I put the bilstiens5100's set at 1.5". for anybody considering these- get them!! they make the ride sooooo much better. love em!

The truck also has an Airraid intake, AFE 4" exhaust, and a sct tune. this has been one of my favorite builds, and its far from finished. i'll keep the forum family updated with plenty of pics.... currently waiting on a new set of wheels/ tires and a 3" body lift to come in. should be pretty sick when it all gets done. thanks for looking... hope ya'll like it!!
