Default 2014 Platinum EB slow build

A few months ago I traded my 2014 Tundra in on a 2014 Platinum F150 EB. It stayed stock for a long time because I was just to busy with work. The completed (if a truck ever is) build will take awhile.
I talked the dealer into Weather Techs and an Undercover flex but otherwise stock.

Finally had a spare day to get the windows tinted and EB badges(off but still on in pic)/4x4 stickers all removed. Wanted to go darker but with the coming inspection rules in TX I decided to keep it legal for now.

The truck is going in next Monday for a Zone lift, 20x12 chrome Mavericks and 35" Toyos. Saturday I plan on possibly having the resonator and flex pipe removed in favor of a straight and a better looking exhaust tip setup.

More future mods are better audio(more subs included), LED interior lights, bedrug, PTM grille surround and PTM Ford Badges. I'm sure I'll find more stuff I want.

Everything is in at Full Flex Customs in Spring. Dropping it off Monday for installation.
Quick pic of the 20x12s.

Dropped the truck off this morning.

A little aggravated with the shop, when I first talked to them 20x12s/35s would be no problem on a 6 inch lift. Turns out without hacking up the fender a leveling kit needs to be added. I'm really hoping there's not too much wheel gap. I told them that was fine but the truck has to sit at least level, I do tow and also carry some hefty equipment boxes in the bed.

Anyways should have it back tomorrow morning.

Also waiting on the arrival of a Bedrug, Harley tails, shorty antenna and 3M metallic black vinyl.

Pics to come soon!

I hope, but if it gets too big my company will complain because I'm on a lease back/truck allowance program.

I didn't plan on tuning but probably will to gain back some mpg.

If you don't mind me asking. What company do you work for? Sounds like they have great perks for their employees.

Here it is. 2014 Platinum EB slow build-image-3030357296.jpg 2014 Platinum EB slow build-image-1405269209.jpg 2014 Platinum EB slow build-image-3222654479.jpg All the factory suspension and wheels/tires were in the back. Unloaded that stuff and still 1" lower in the back. 2" lift shackles will be install while I'm gone to Mexico for a month, also probably getting Bilstiens for the front. It does ride good and the Ecoboost and 3.55s seem to have no problem pulling the extra weight.


Still waiting on tails, bedrug and 3m vinyl(mainly to experiment with. Cant decide on grille options, and possibly a replacement bumper. Hopefully when I get back from Mexico I can order a package from Stage 3.
