il_duce's 2013 King Ranch Build
Well, this is going to be a quick transformation at first. I bought the truck in November and have been modding since day one. It's a 2013 Ford F150 King Ranch 4x4, 5.0, Offroad package, Tuxedo Black.

Here is the day I brought her home:

First mod was swapping the map and dome lights with LED lights. Must have cheap mod:

Then, I swapped the barely noticeable puddle lamp lights for LEDs. I went from not even knowing I had the puddle lamps to having the entire side of my truck and the ground around it:

Since the pictures would be boring, I'll just mention that all exterior lights have been swapped with LEDs.

Next, I got a BakFlip FiberMax cover. I had the Extang Solid Fold on my 2010, but I like the looks of the FiberMax a little more:

Santa brought me an LED light bar from Recon and LED license plate lights with single red LED lights facing outward acting as another marker light:

Some pics right after a good detail:

Got WeatherTech mats for the front and rear. I only have a pic of the rear for now:

Bought some black glossy pillar covers off of ebay. Gets rid of that matte black look. Also in these pics are my AutoVentshade in-channel window visors:

Picked up some smoked tail lights. Raptor/HD or new FX2/FX4, whatever you wanna call them:

I don't have pics of it, but I added a DeeZee tailgate assist. Awesome and cheap mod.

The next and most expensive mods were my 2" Auto Spring level and the addition of 295/60R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers. I LOVE this setup. It changed the entire look of the truck:

And so far, my latest mod (and free!) was changing my MFT wallpaper to something more suitable:

We have a few similar mods and some you've done are in my future.

KR is my next, I love the interior

Yeah, when I initially started looking for a new truck this year, the KR wasn't even on my radar. I started looking and found this gem. Instantly fell in love.

So I am currently undecided on my future mods. I originally wasn't going to get a new exhaust, but with the new aggressive tires, I feel it warrants a little more growl. I'm considering the Borla S Type, Borla Touring and the Magnaflow dual, passenger side exit. I really like the look of the dual-side exit. I am leaning toward the Magnaflow based on price and the fact that the Borla Touring isn't that much more aggressive or louder over stock. I don't want something obnoxious, just a noticeable change. But I'm also looking at other brands with single side exit. I'm not a huge fan of the dual, straight back exit, which the Borla S Type has, but I like the sound.

I had considered a bull bar, but I'm leaning towards not getting at the moment.

Possibly aftermarket wheels down the road. But right now, at this exact moment, I am satisfied with stock wheels. But that could change in the next 5 minutes.

I also REALLY like the look of tow mirrors, but the $400 price tag isn't that appealing. Plus the fact that my power mirrors would no longer work and I use those everyday parking at work. Idiots can't park and could care less if your mirror is in the way.

Modding is never complete, so I am always on the lookout haha.

Don't know much about Borla, I'm going with a Corsa db and deleting my res, but we've got different engines, that exhaust on a 5.0 might be too loud. YouTube maybe?

I used to want a bull bar but I think it's a bad idea now.

As far as tow mirrors go, I'm saving up to get the OEM maxtow's power folding/extending. That's about 1,500. So that's a while away.
