I have a Bakflip HD on order, should have that in the next few weeks, then maybe the N fab replacement bumper, i'm just not too sure on n fab quality.

I'm kinda leaning on getting this bumper.

I might get a 8" loop instead tho and white powder coat with black skid plate.

I like your dash. Did you clear the paint?

All white might be too much, if i was getting a fab fours bumper i'd have it all white but i don't like how those style bumpers remove the lip under the hood and headlights, just don't look as good on an f 150 as it does other trucks. Plus i've always liked the look of pre runner trucks and this bumper is 2" wider than the truck and should look awesome with fender flares.

Heres a few more pics, I'll upload more once i get it cleaned up and i'm off shift, this was taken 4:30 in the morning.

I'm starting to think i like the truck without fender flares i like seeing the tires in my mirrors, although flares will keep the truck cleaner longer.

That's one sick truck!!!!!! Love the headlights! Seriously nice touch. I plan on doing the same with my interior trim painting it white. What're your plans for subs? I'm lifting mine and getting new wheels and tires and paint work gonna be a different look then yours though!

Also, dont get flares! I don't like them too much with my 35s anymore. But I'm going to 37x13.50s so that'll fill out a lot better. My opinion only

I know nothing about audio, I was never a fan of subs and speakers until i got in a buddies car that is at the stuff all the time. I got 1 kicker 10" in there now and a MTX amp with a cheaply made box. I may just get a 2 channel amp and one more sub to really make it pound, just for if i get some mis behaving passengers.

I think the flares would look better with the bottoms done in black that way they match the wheel wells on the bottom. but it rained today and my truck is really messey so i'm thinking I may have to get something. my tires are just over 35" they rub stock and aftermarket flapes and my bumper. Also my new offroad bumper is 2" winder on each side which will mate with the flares, on the stock bumper it looks bad where the bumper is skinny, on the dodges it still looks good where they skin out by the headlights. they also look better on a GMC truck than a Chevy and you can notice the fenders are shapped different when they are side by side.

I think thats all the F150 needs is black bottoms and wider front bumper.
