I thought I would start my build thread. I am slowly ridding my truck of Chrome. I really wanted to buy a used FX4 but, alas they were quite a bit more money. So now I am hoping to slowly change my XLT to closely resemble an FX4 while saving some coin.
So far I have put on some used FX4 headlamps and a used set of gun metal 20" FX4 wheels. I have also updated the front and back interior lights with LED's, which are quite bright, from f150leds.com.
I just put on some multi mile open country XTX today on as well. 275/55
I got my eye on a grille, just can't decide if I am going to paint my chrome. Has anyone done this? Does it hold up? Not sure I will be happy with the results and so I am leaning towards a ptm fx4 grille.
I have stainless handles covers on order to paint out.
Plan on custom emblems from custom truck solutions in black and grey.
Will be spraying the side steps out with bed liner.
I am doing this all fairly slowly but will keep updating as I go. If anyone has done a similiar build let me know, especially if you have any tips.
