Default Ecoengineers 2013 FX4 build

I think I have finally done enough stuff to it to have a good build thread.
First picture is it completely stock.

It was stock for a week then came the 2" leveling kit, 305/55r20 trail grapplers, AFE 4" Stainless exhaust, AFE Stage 2 intake and Proflap mud flaps. I decided to put the exhaust and intake on myself.

After about 3 months I finally got bored with it. Painted the F150 on the floor mats- didn't work as great as I thought but looked cool for awhile. Once that was done I had to build my own lower grille insert. After a few iterations I finally found one I liked.

Then christmas hit and came a readylift 3" rear block, recon smoked third brake light and smoked mirror signals. In the mix was some rigid duallys installed that I already had and put some LEDs in the interior that I had from my previous truck.
On the way are glossy B pillars, red emblem overlays and black lug nuts.

If you don't mind me asking how much was the 4in AFE Exhaust? I'm thinking of picking up the 3in Mach Force XP Exhaust. Wondering how I am going to install it though considering it's build for the 157in Wheelbase and I have the 145. Nice Truck man, love the HIDs and Smoked out Tails.

I think I paid around $570 for it. I knew if I was going to put an exhaust on right away I wanted it to be stainless and last forever. If you order the kit from AFE they will tell you how to cut it so it fits. The exhaust on my truck had an extra pipe if you had a long bed but for mine you didn't need the pipe and there was no cutting require. I did it by myself so its pretty easy to do.

Great looking truck. I'm really interested in your bumper grille insert. How much did it cost for you to make it? They float around on ebay for around $100.

About 25 dollars total. 16 for the part plus 5 dollars for powder coating and another 5 or so in red paint.

Nice, I've got the same color truck. Did your tow mirrors come with it? I smashed one of my stock mirrors and should have replaced both with those.

Truck looks great!
