So I got my fx4 in June and I have found this forum. Needless to say I've been studying hard about what mods I'm going to do. My girlfriend has named her cars since she was a kid so I let her think a name up for my truck. She chose Xena aha.
2013 F150 FX4 SuperCab EcoBoost 3.5 V6
Microsoft sync (not my ford touch)
Power windows, back window, moonroof
Here's a picture of her the day I bought her.
And a picture after I cleaned her the first time. (got in there and got to know her
Mods ordered already include:
2.5 inch leveling kit
Glossy pillar covers
Red replacement OEM ford ovals (grille and tailgate)
Bakflip G2 tonneau cover
Inchannel vent visors and sunroof windflector (if I can find one somewhat low profile)
Red calipers or red caliper covers
New headlights and maybe blackened tail lights
Tires and wheels (way down the road)
And today I recently just finished removing and painting my stock black and chrome F150 fender and tailgate emblems to red and chrome, I think it looks really sharp and came out great thanks to the thread on this forum that I learned from.
Stock emblems after removal
At this point the inlay is separated and has 2 coats of primer, 3-4 coats of cardinal red duplicoat(?) paint and 3 coats of the same brand clear coat protective coating.
So I've got some new additions so far, added the deezee tailgate assist which I love, although I wish it was a touch faster. Also added my weathertech no drill rear mudflaps and some seamless AVS visors and an avs sunroof windflector, which makes a huge difference when having the sunroof completely open. Pics to follow.
There's the before and after, also I have installed some stick on pillar covers to give it a black glossy finish that Matches the visors really well. Was concerned about the thickness of the pillars but everything turned out alright.
what size/style sunroof deflector did you get? truck looks good, definitely will look even better with some bigger tires. Wes
I got an avs windflector from autoanything.com, 42 inch was the size I believe! It was what they said "custom fit" my vehicle, however because of the satellite antenna being so close I had to create a groove myself. Pretty easy to do, I think it looks great. Just pealed the double sided tape on that part specifically and added my own after it was grooved out. Added some extra to prevent a whistle and now driving around town with the sunroof is much quieter, up to about 80/90kmh.
So I also replaced my front emblem to see how it looked, not really sure how I feel about it. Kinda feel like it looks like Rudolph's nose. Maybe if I painted the outline of the headlights red too, maybe do some work with Photoshop. Thoughts? I also have one for the back end too.
Also forgot to upload a pic of my very first addition. KCCO!
