I agree with leaving the hood decal. It is the sharpest of the App. Pack. decals and if I had to keep just one that would be it.
I am in no way unhappy with my cheapie bar for sure. It does what I wanted as it illuminates the ditches nicely even being placed behind the grill on my truck. I have seen quite a few F150's on the road with a bar in that opening..... even the ecoboosts which....... well I guess up here is cold enough it probably never really matters that much somewhat obstructing the intercooler. I like it behind the grill on my other truck as it is nice to have it concealed. I honestly like my stuff to stay looking fairly stock.. not much for aftermarket add ons or doo dads... in fact I remove them, like the step bars. Even if they are technically factory in this instance.
The hood decal will stay though, I like that. I just really liked the red piping on the seats and the suede... such a nice touch. I originally didn't want leather and only wanted a cloth truck..... but most of the other interior features I otherwise hoped for are not available outside the 402A package so I thought go for the gusto. They reluctantly knocked $17000 off the sticker price on this truck too so I suppose that helped. Nobody wants the 6.2 lol. I really should order an exhaust. Such nice headpipes and a 3.5" Y...... to pee shooter. If a stock super duty exhaust fit I would run it..... but the MBRP single 3.5" doesn't seem too bad. I will get it powdercoated black by a friend of mine for basically nothing so then it won't rust with the 409 S.S.
