Default 2013 fx4

Had my truck for awhile but new to the site. Already has some mod's done but i got a few more planned so thought i would start a thread.

Truck is a 2013 FX4 5.0, 16,500 miles.

Currently has:
6" procomp lift
20" Fuel Rims wrapped with 35x12.5" Nitto Trail Grapplers (tires new last week)
AMP running boards
M1 grille
Superchips Programmer
Probably a few other minor things i cant think of right now.

What im doing currently:
LED Reverse lights, fog lights and puddle lights (shipped on Saturday)
Raptoid Grille (ordered on Saturday, should be here by Friday)

What i have planned:
Front Bumper, leaning towards the ADD Off Road Venom Bumper
LED Light Bar for the roof

Couple of things:
Front tires rub now, another reason to get a different front bumper. lol
Mileage sucks pretty bad, need to work on the program.
Trying to decide what to do about the light bar. Its all for looks and will rarely get used so do i spend a load of cash or do i just get one of those cheap bars off ebay. Still deciding on that one.


Really love this picture, it is before the new tires.

Awesome build, man! Looks great. As far as your light bar goes. Check out OTP7. In my opinion, if your not looking to spend crazy money for Rigids etc. I'd definitely go OTP7. Great bang for the buck.

Thanks for that, the pricing is definitely more workable.
My next problem is the brackets. I dont want to lose any height clearance if possible so going to have to see what i can find to fit the 50" OTP7 light.

As long as you get mounts that mount behind the weather stripping of your doors, you can slide them up or own as far as you want. I have stacked OTP7's on a OLB dual bar mount. The downside to the OTP7 50" bars is that they measure about 49" bar to bar while most mounts are for bars that measure 51"-53" (Rigids for example). I simply put black spacers on mine. I'll hit you with a pic when mine get installed within the next few days. I like a low profile mount too.

Okay so the roof mounted light bar is a no go for now. I have a years pass to a carwash and realized its to risky to try and run the light bar thru it. Kind of sucks but oh well. Spend the money on another mod i guess.

On a side-note both my grille and LED's are delayed for some reason.

Yeah, there are plenty of cool mods to do. As if your truck isn't already cool enough haha Can't wait to see it with the grille and LED's. Bummer on the wait though.

Nice truck man. What grille do you currently have? Also, are those led bulbs in your stock fog housings? Or did you go with something like the jw's or morimoto's? Looks like a lot of glare is why I ask.

Looks good. Noticed you said the mileage sucks, what kind of numbers are you seeing?
