Default 2013 F150 Lariat Super Crew Ruby Red & Adobe

I have already started modifications on the truck, so I am going to start this thread in the middle. I do have some photos from the dealer that shows the truck stock, and then I will add photos later on to show what has been done.

So I will start this with the dealer photos. This is the truck I currently own, and these are the pictures from the dealer web site of the truck. It's the only ones I have of the stock truck.

The first modification was simple and inexpensive. I found a local guy who guarantees his work for the life of your vehicle, and is quite inexpensive.

Yep, had the front driver and passenger windows tinted. If you are wondering why you don't see the entire truck it's because I wanted to show the mods one at a time. A picture further away would show additional mod.

Just bought a 2014 Lariat same Ruby Red and Pale adobe except not two toned. Looking to get the front windows tinted as well.

Looks good.

The next thing I added was a Undercover Lux model tonneau cover. I had it painted Ruby Red to match the rest of the truck. As I have had a hard cover before on my previous truck, I was familiar with how tough it is to see inside the bed of the truck. I asked the shop where I bought the cover what they could do, and they exceeded by expectations. They added 2 rows of LED lights on either side of the cover. They then wired it with a quick disconnect to make removal of the cover easy. The switch for the lights was placed where the original switch for the "dome light" that came with the cover was located.

This thing gives out a ton of light, and works great for tailgating in the evening. It will light up the truck and most things around it when the top is open.

Next was a set of lights that work as tail lights, blinkers, etc. They were mounted under the tailgate above the bumper. I shot a small video so you can see how they work. The video was in the dark, but like any other vehicle lights, they can be seen in the daylight.

Next comes the Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares. I had them painted to match the Adobe around the bottom.

I have already put on a 2" leveling kit, and theLT295/65R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers have been ordered. They should be on in about 3 or 4 days. I love the tires, and understand they work almost perfectly with the stock rims.
