Your truck is stunning! That will be my next F150! Are the new Raptors the same as the F150 chassis in regards to width? I know the previous version was a bit wider.
Please tell us some more about the floor as well!

Basically, the cab is the same as the standard F150 as far as interior room. The wheels are wider, that's why the body flares out at the wheels. Likewise it won't fit through most car washes.

The floor is an epoxy based paint with black, gray, and white flakes mixed in it, then a clear coat epoxy on top.

A buddy and I built this garage this summer and I've been waiting for my concrete guy to free up to paint the floor. He did my attached garage too.

RedX, what was the model number of the mud flap that you got? Been looking at one but not sure which one will fit.

Sorry, not sure where you got the idea I installed mud flaps, because I have not.

RedX, sorry I thought you had one. Anyone installed flaps? If so, let us know the parts number. Like to keep the baby as clean as possible for a little while.

I've been trying to put my attached garage back together after getting the floor painted, likewise mods have been slow... Took a little time today to complete a couple. Added a tailgate seal, because I was getting water and dust in the bed. And I started adding more graphics. Started with a Red Bull decal. Hopefully next up will be a Ford Performance graphic for the bottom of the front door.
