Default 2015 F-150 Lariat Build

Ok, so I purchased my new 2015 in January and I spent a ton of time contemplating what I was going to do to make it "mine". I started with adding 2 12" subwoofers under the rear seat because I just have to have loud tunes. Second, I tinted the windows all the way around. Third, I added a level and some tires. Here is what has been done so far:

-2 12" Rockford Fosgate P3 Shallow Mount Subs

-1 T100 Class-BD Rockford Fosgate Amplifier

-Full Tint: 35% on front two windows (due to Texas laws), 5% on the back 3 windows over the factory privacy glass, and a 5% windshield eyebrow.

-2 1/2" BDS front end level

-1 1" BDS rear block kit

-Set of 285/65/20 BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2's

I will post pictures as I can get them but I also removed the factory running boards which I plan on adding a power set at some point. I also removed the front air dam to provide a seamless lower body line. I plan on removing the FX4 stickers on the bed soon.

Let me know what you think!

I appreciate that! I am debating on adding 1 1/2" wheel spacers to push the wheels out and give it a little wider stance so they tires line up with the body but I can't make up my mind from a safety aspect. Some say they are fine while others say it's a mistake. So confused on what to do right now!

What's wrong with that license plate? Ohhhh....I see.....a Texans fan.

Good idea on the air dam. It makes it look lifted even more. For some reason even with a lift the 15's still don't look as tall as a 14 after a lift. I just ordered my level kit and 35's for my 15 and I think I'll take that air dam off too.

Yeah, I didn't realize how much of a difference that air damn and those boards would make not being on the vehicle. I don't regret taking either of them off one bit.

I sure can. I will try to get some pictures this afternoon. What I realized is once you add subs and are able to turn the bass down on the actual Sony system it all sounds better. Seems like once the bass is all the way down the mids and highs perform better because there is no bass to distort the sound out of the speakers.

your truck looks great. I have the same one on order. Did you end up putting on wheel spacers? If so did you go 1.5" and can you post some pics with the spacers on. Thanks
