I put the goofy Raptor running boards so my girlfriend at the time and dad could get up into the truck. Other than that, I kept her stock for about 9 months and then decided to pull the trigger on some 20" Fuel Couplers with 275/65R20 Toyo Open Country's. I also had a 2.5" leveling spacer and there was only rubbing at full lock in reverse.

Of course, I had to put an intake in so I just went with a K&N. A few weeks later I also put in a Flowmaster 40 series cat back exhaust with dual exit out the back and black tips.

I then got sick of the stock speakers so I just put in JBL's all the way around. I'm not huge on a crazy ridiculous sounding system (I listen to country anyway). Although a sub wouldn't be way too out of the question.

I settled down for a while and just enjoyed her but I came across some things I had been looking for and decided it was time. I put a Rogue Rebel bumper with a 40" light bar and it came out great.

I then got really really sick of the stiff ride provided by the stock shocks and spacer level so I went and got Fox 2.5 coilovers with reservoirs and Fox 2.0s for the rear. The coilovers are adjustable up to 3" lift so spacers are no longer necessary.

I got a cool Christmas gift from my sister and brother in law so him and I put these Recons in and I love them. Not too much of a pain in the ***.

Him and I had actually previously put some questionable HIDs just for ****s and giggles and I went on a quick mudding run with my buds and the HIDs blew my battery and alternator so I got towed to the dealership. But I guess I'm the dumbass for that one, just didn't even think about it. Probably not the last dumb thing I'll do but that's life.

I replaced my FlexFuel badge with the Coyote V8 emblem. I absolutely love it because it sets it apart from most other V8 F150s and it only took me about ten minutes to do with some dental floss, a blow dryer, and some Goo Gone.
