Default Reider03's 2011 Build the "Boost-Bars" truck

Hey Everyone,
I decided it was time to start a build thread and feedback on my truck and get some ideas of what to do next

When I bought the truck in '11 I hated the gap in the bumper which lead me to my first mod, designing and manufacturing the Boost-Bars.

Otherwise I stayed pretty mellow on the add on's...generic Mud flaps, Tri-fold Tonneau Cover... pretty basic

I recently Decided it was time to Kick it up a notch...And got in touch with my buddy Chris at
http://www.f150forum.com/f37/new-ven...s-more-263505/
http://yukeshidretrofits.com/ to get a custom set of HID Lights.

Here's what we designed

[QUOTE=reider03;3657479]Hey everyone,
been meaning to get this together for a while now, so here it is...

Order a standard set of Tow Mirrors from a local store http://www.findapart.ca/ and got the basic features, power tilt, heat, led turn signals, and puddle light. I didn't get the power fold/telescoping options as they aren't going to impact day-day use.

Time to install 20 Mins for both sides.

So The tools I used..
2 picks, to remove covers for screws in the doors
3 sockets, 6mm 8mm and 11mm
I used a socket driver on a drill but it is not nessicary, you can use a ratchet.

Step 1
Remove covers in the door pull and behind hinge with the picks.

then use the 8mm socket to remove the screws in those 2 places.

Step 2
Use the 6mm to remove the two screws on the bottom of the door panel

Click the image to open in full size.


Step 3
Lift and pull the door out, left mine attached to the wiring as it was going back on after changing the mirror out

Step 4
remove the wiring harness and Use the 11mm socket to remove the 3 nuts holding the mirror assembly in place

Installation is the opposite order!

Now on mine, since I didn't like the look of all black on the mirror, I masked the top part, sanded the texture off with burgandy scotch brite. Takes a while to get it just right. Count on 30 mins per side

Washed with soap and water. Let dry.
Sprayed with Adhesion Promoter. Let dry

Painted it with 3 coats of Base, and 4 coats of clear coat to match my truck.


Before Mirror swap

VERY EXCITED. I got a package of goodies on the way from my good friends at Stage 3 Motorsports http://www.stage3motorsports.com/

Not telling what all is coming just yet.... but the back end will be as bright and the front at night, and I'll b putting an extra 100 or so hp to the tires...and it wont sound like a sewing machine anymore..

So Here's the Exhaust pics and Sound Clips. From a warm start. and i still have the resonator in place, my delete pipe hasn't arrived yet.
Install was Fantastic, 25 Mins start to finish with my brother, and we spent 15 of it trying to get the old resonator off the flex pipe. If I had the Resonator delete pipe would have been an easy 10 minute job.
Tools required 13, 14 , 15 mm sockets and ratchet I believe was all we needed.
