Great truck, love the color, I have the same truck but grey. I just bought the rough country 2.5" leveling kit as well. What tires/wheels are you planning on running? there's so much out there, i'm getting overwhelmed trying to find the perfect setup!

I am not sure as far as size of tire that I will upgrade to. I have not really given it that much thought to be honest. I agree though there are a crap load of tire and rim choices.. I might just for now go one size up from what is on there .

Yes I can understand that. My sweetheart is still stock. I have a 3 and 4 year old and husband. In a year I will have about 2,300.00 per month free and clear money to do what I wanna do. Woohoo

Today I received the tailgate protector. Quick ten minute install. I was a little displeased that the cover was not made to tuck under the tailgate "wing". It is a Quality Ford Part I must say. No extra drilling needed. remove the torx bolts ,slap it on the gate, and install new screws. Now if my bull bar would get here today I would be very pleased.

well that was very disappointing. I got the bull bar Friday eve, installed it and it just looks stupid..The proportions are all off. It is black, instead of the ordered chrome, I figured I could just rattle can it chrome, but it is just ugly and looks horrid. Took it off and will be looking into a nice four tab light bar with the birthday money..damn. Hope they have a return policy.

Today I removed the rear "green leaf" emblem. Looks much better. I must say the 3m adhesive has improved. Pain in the *** to remove.

Painted the tow hooks Race Red to match the truck.
Then installed the light bar. Started messing around
with light configurations. Looking to put some of the Hella
F4 lights. I like the light bar...

Pouring down raining. Picture is not that great. Truck will not fit in the garage, so have to dodge the rain showers.

Looking real nice, sir. Too bad about the bull bar - if they sent black and you ordered chrome, well, that seems to me a fair reason for a full refund.
