Default XENA - The 2013 F150 FX4 Scab EcoBoost Build

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.

Specs
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)

Future Mods:
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.

And the finished product reassembled

And here they are reinstalled on Xena. Beautiful.

And I'm searching for a set like these, dunno if I wanna go smoked or black, led or ccfl, but I love the halo look.

And a set of LED taillights.. Any ideas or suggestions on that front to match xena?

Looking good. I have had my RC 2.5" level for over a month now and am really enjoying it. You need to get some bigger tires on there now to fill up that wheel well space!

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.

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 got another new addition, wouldn't say mod but I love it either way and think it looks great. A vintage 1969 Nova Scotia license plate.

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!
