Default Options NOBODY regrets getting

So what options do absolutely nobody regret getting? The ones people spend a lot of time and effort retrofitting, but nobody removes. A few that come to mind are:

3.73 dif
36 gallon tank
Tow mirrors

Something guys buying trucks might want to think about.

The only thing I could think people would actually agree on is LED headlights and the 36 gallon tank.

The tow tow mirrors are a double edged sword for me, because I despise the 2 steps it takes to fold them.

Granted this is just my opinion(and you know what they say about them). I am against the LED headlights, they are bright as hell and the glare is so bad

Curious. LEDs in general or specifically the current OE ones? My eyes are getting older and I really like them.

Some aren't too terrible. But the OE ones in the F150s if one is coming at you its like looking into the damn sun. I MUCH preferred the 13-14 Hids with projectors

So it's other 150s coming at you, not driving with them? Makes sense to me as mine were adjusted way too high from the factory and people were flashing me. Doesn't happen now that I adjusted myself. They were over a foot high at 30'. Were also illuminating road signs too brightly before adjusting.

yea its coming at me, i personally have never driven one with the LEDs. So i can't speak from that aspect. I don't think the halogens are all that bad
