Default Top 5 Mod List

Thought I would start a thread to help all of the new Raptor owners on where to start their modding. One of the biggest advantages of the forum back when I had my Gen 1 was the help and advice from all of the other owners on what mods they did, how they did it, and where they purchased their items. So with this thread, please list your Top 5 mods. Other members can ask you questions about your mods and maybe we can liven this forum up a bit.... Mod on!

RedX Top 5 Mods:
1. Rigid Radiance fog lights
2. Heat reduction window tint (front windows, moon roof, and eyebrow)
3. Access Laredo tonneau cover
4. Bed Rug mat
5. Fuel Hostage III Wheels +20mm offset

Tried to dull the idiocy of trading my '16 Platinum for a '17 Raptor by having the dealer transfer over my pace Edwards bedlocker electric bed cover and my bed rug.

So far the truck ex reds expectations - handling is amazing and just can't stop looking at it.

Look forward to following you guys' other mods.

Good thread! My most important mods are:

1. ARB Onboard Twin Air compressor. Already took my Raptor offroad with some moderately technical trails. Being able to air down and air back up when I get back on the road is nice. It fills up our tires quickly WITHOUT having an air tank. Plus, good for MTB tires, rafts, etc. It can actually run power tools. 100% duty cycle. Air chuck is mounted to the bumper near the license plate.

2. Pace Edwards Ultragroove metal tonneau cover. This cover is amazing. Nothing different from a regular tonneau, except the Thule and Yakima compatible tracks built into the rails. I went with a Rhino Rack system because they actually make Aero Bars wide enough to span the width of our truck beds. It looks amazing, and the rack attaches securely. Detaches from the tracks in less than 30 seconds. Perfect for the bike and ski racks.

3. Stereo. I had to do something about that audio system. 2 JL Audio 10" subs under the rear seats, JL 5-channel class D amp and Focal speakers all around.

4. Window Tint. Same as RedX. Had to cut down that heat in the Colorado sun.

5. Undercover Swing Case Bed Boxes. These things have a crap ton of room, and don't take up any usable space in the bed. Store all my tools, offroad accessories, tow straps etc. in these. They also double as a nice cooler for getting to the end of the trail. :-D Also put in a rubber bed mat. The bed has a spray in liner, but the rubber mat is nice as it keeps stuff from sliding all over the place.

My pace Edwards has the grooves too. Can't understand why they don't all do that, as I get lots of use out of my Thule rack accessories...

Next *** - just ordered the AMP powestep XL step board. I know it's not manly rugged but I loved the one in my Platinum and it sure makes entrance and exit easier for wverybody. This new xl doubles as a rock rail, so I'm ***;using it's pretty heavy duty...

Guys said the couldn't get pace Edwards to work with the one way toggle switches...What am I going to do with all those toggle accessory switches?

To reduce heat with ceramic tint, you have to tint all windows

The rear from the factory are just colored not setup to reduce heat

Put clear air 80 ceramic on the entire windshield and overlaid across the rear 3 windows then ceramic tint the front sides to match

If you have a moon roof, air 80 goes there as well
