I had to get my Front Bumper re-painted. As u can see from the close-up pic I am attaching, my paint was badly chipped on the metal portion of my front bumper & absolutely no where else...Weird * Ruby-Red is stupid expensive & hard to match *
Anyway she looks much better now

Installed a pair of OE Rear Fender Liners # BL3Z-9927886-A ($112)
They fit perfectly, hardware included & best of all NO-Drill

Ok, we all know the Back-Up Lights on these trucks are worthless & since mines a 2WD Sport, I didn't want to install those nice recessed lights into the bumper, because I think they'd look out of place. Well as fate would have it I still had a pair of Alpena Tough LEDs sitting around. I used these on the rocker panels of my Superduty, they worked flawlessly for a few years & were still working when I sold it. While they don't deliver a large amount of light, anyone would admit they are brighter than those stupid OE peanut bulbs. I thought about installing them in the crack between bumper & tailgate. But after the thought of a flare in my backup camera arose, I installed under the bumper instead & am glad I did. I realize there are much brighter options, but I wanted something unnoticeable....See Pic's

After adding those LED strips under my rear Bumper to my back-up light circuit, I seen these JDM's & of course u can never have enough light. These are definitely an awesome upgrade & at only $18 on Amazon, well worth it IMO.

I purchased a full Kicker System including a powered Subwoofer, 4 new Door Speakers, Digital Amp/Processor for those Speakers & all the plug n play Harnesses required for a seamless installation! BUT the coolest thing was I purchased it as a Ford Accessories & was able to find a dealer willing to sell old stock for half price!
This is a $1200+ sound system, that I purchased for $615 shipped
Purchased from: GORDIE BOUCHER FORD # 262-250-9838

Installed a full set of Rancho RS9000XL Series, click-adjustable, Shocks & Struts
I know some of you will call me crazy, but I am used to SuperDuty's & this F150 rides so smooth, it felt like I was on a boat, just floating around.
Also when I drove her into a corner or ramp hard, the body rolled too much for my taste (even w/that massive Sway-Bar).
So I installed these babies & now I can dial the suspension to my liking.


Best price I found was @ RockAuto $510 total, I had these on my 2006 F250 also for a few years & loved em

Since I can't eliminate the damn F150 Emblem on my Tailgate, because of holes, thanks Ford
I started looking around for something to add to the other side, as a way to balance it a little bit.
Found this cool looking "5.0 Coyote V8" aluminum Emblem on eBay
