Default Slow 2012 F150 5.0 build

Purchased used June of last year with 6000 miles. I wasn't impressed at first with the XL thinking it was just a farm truck but not having carpet with 4 kids worked out great lol. I started out quick having a JVC DD Navi installed along with replacing all the factory speakers with aftermarket Memphis speakers. The came the rims...I went with 20x9 Liquid Metal Coils and Hankook 275/55/20 tires...added visors then my lovely wife surprised me at Christmas with the Solo Performance Mach X Dual Exhaust which sounds awesome. I recently added a Billet grille to the lower bumper. My next mods include:


FX4 Heads and Tails
Smoked 3rd Brake Light
Full Billet Grille
SCT Tuner 5*
Wheel well Liners
AFE CAI Intake
Blacked out emblems
5% Tint all around


I am wanting to find an Oxford White Upper Bumper valence so it doesn't look so XL...Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Its not ugly, it just needs a little more work.
I'm a big fan of white.. Its a good start by switching to FX head and tailights and Nav unit. If i was in your place, i would consider PTM the front valance, door handles and the side mirrors. Also, leveling the front, and definitely changing the wheels.

Thanks. Well I wont be changing the wheels. I chose these because it is a 2wd and every truck you see has fuel wheels or some other off road looking wheel on mud tires. Before I would level the front I would most likely level the rear. I will need to fine an upper bumper valence that is smooth. This one is textured and wouldn't look right if I just had it painted.

They are from Ebay..Ipexmotoring I think..They were a bitch to get on but so far so good. I had to re-aim my headlights but wasn't a big deal. I put LED blinkers in and without the relay it is annoying lol.
