Default 2013 Green Gem Lariat build

Well, here it is. I bought this truck from dad with about 35k miles on it. It's a 2013 Lariat Ecoboost with the 3.55's and offroad package. I'm anxious to get some things done to it in the next few weeks, so bare with me on this slow (almost non existent) build. Hopefully I can make some good progress on it by the end of the month. Yall let me know if I need anything else

Plans in order of priority

Remove running boards and chin spoiler

2" level
35" tires (not sure on the type yet)
-285/65R20 BFG AT
-295/65R20 Toyo AT2
-295/60R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers
window tint
black low pro toolbox
PTM grill surroun
new speakers
HIDs
AMP steps

Looks awesome man.

I would say get some AT2s or BFG ATs. Trail Graps look good but will drain your MPGs. If you mud or go camping and hit some iffy trails frequently I would say get the Trail Graps.

Yeah that's kinda what I figured. I do hunt pretty often come fall, but I don't think I NEED MTs to get to or from where I'm at. They look awesome but at ~15-20lbs more per tire over the other choices, it's a tough sell. I'll decide when I have the money in my hand.

Man, that green gem is mesmerizing. My last two trucks have been black, but I think this color or silver will be in the running for my next one.

You know my vote is going to be on the Trail Grapplers, but I love the AT2's too. OEM HIDs are a must as well.

Yeah it must have been an early 13 build because it seems like every lariat I see has the HIDs now

Yeah I think so. I want some HIDs but they're far down my list now.

I'm gonna do some calling around tomorrow and see if I can find someone to PTM my chrome grill surround. I'm unsuccessful after a few calls so far

thanks bub.


So i've got a 2.5" rough country level that I was given several months ago. Should I be concerned about using this plastic spacer over something made of steel or aluminum?

Also, if I go the 2.5" route I'm also going with a 2" rear block from F150lifts because I think my rake is right at 2" as it sits stock.

Would yall go this route I just mentioned or just get a quailty 2" spacer?
