Default KPT2's 2014 King Ranch Build

I have a 2014 KR 5.0L and have been slowly modding away. Figured I would start a thread to track progress. Let me know what you guys think. I got all my ideas from what I've seen on this board, and I appreciate the help I've gotten from all of you.

Current mod list:
-Autospring 1.5" leveling kit
-Black Rhino Imperials, 20x9 +12 offset
-275/65/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers
-Retrax tonneau cover
-Replaced tan bed rails with black
-Rampage step bars
-Rigid dually floods
-Mustang coil covers and engine cover
-4.5" exhaust tip
-Side mirror reflector deletes
-Ford rear fender liners
-Line-X bed
-Tuffy security rear seat storage box
-5.0L Coyote badges
-Tinted front windows

Here's how it currently sits:

Here is the truck I sold for the KR. It's a 2009 Tacoma with a 1.75" lift and 32's, among numerous other mods. It was a great truck but I needed something much bigger after my daughter was born.

Now on to the new truck. 2014 F-150 King Ranch with the 5.0 in White/Pale Adobe. I don't have any pictures of it stock.

Coming from the tacoma, which had a ton of under and behind seat storage, I needed a place to put my tow ropes, tie downs, etc so I got a Tuffy Security box for under the rear seats.

First major thing I did was install an autospring 1.5" leveling kit and 275/65/20 (34") Nitto Terra Grapplers. In this picture you can also see the rigid dually floods.

Next was the tonneau cover. I was torn on what to do because I didn't think the tan bed rails would look good with a black tonneau. I briefly thought about getting a color-matched pale adobe peragon cover, but ultimately the retrax suited my needs better. With some help from tasca, I replaced the tan bed rails with black ones to match the cover.

With the 1.5" lift, the tires were sitting in a little far for my taste, so I added Bora 1.25" wheel spacers. This is temporary solution until I get new wheels. Also shown in this picture are the rampage step bars. I plan to paint these pale adobe when I get time.

Looks great! I like the black bed cover on there, it breaks the other colors up just enough.

So the next big mod is going to be wheels. I've had a tough time finding ones that I think will compliment the white/tan paint. Most of the cool wheel designs are black, and while I like black wheels, I just don't think they will flow with the two tone paint color. Maybe on a black and tan truck, but not the white and tan.

These are the ones I've decided on. Black Rhino Imperials in silver/machined. 20x9 +12 offset. I should have them on sometime this week.

your truck looks great! how close is the tire to being flush with the fender with the stock wheels and spacers?

Thanks! I't's basically right even with the top of the fender now. I'll try to remember to take a picture for you.

And if I calculated right, the new wheels should keep the stance the same, but without the spacers.

awesome, thank you! I think I'm going to be running 1" spacers since I'll have 285/65's and would rather have them slightly tucked than slightly poking out.

I think from what I found, around +20 on an x9 with a 275 tire was close to flush with the fender, so you should definitely be in the neighborhood. I've never seen those wheels before, but they should look great on your truck. I found it to be way difficult to find a good looking wheel for a two-tone KR.

I apologize for the quality of the photos, grabbed them quick last night. They aren't the best but they show the stance. Hope that helps.
