Posted this in the late model 09-14 section and several suggested I put this post in the member builds section. Fairly new to the truck scene, have always been a Mustang Cobra fan / builder and owned / build several 03 Cobras that would turn about 600 HP to the wheels. Then, life, marriage and my business got in the way and gave up the "cool vehicle" thing for the last several years. Back in now, head first and just got an FX4 (Wanted a brand new Raptor, but at over $70 grand, I figured I could make something look pretty damn cool for about 1/2 that amount.

Anyway, just got the truck about a month or so ago. 6 inch Big Country lift and Fuel Rampage 2 piece wheels, 22x12 with 35 inch Trail Grapplers. Threw on a fake Raptor grill too for good measure.
Can't wait for better weather so I can get out and enjoy the truck more.
1st pic is a before, the remainder of the pics are what I've done so far.
I'll be posting up the stock black 20 inch wheels with 33 inch Terra Grapplers soon and probably the bed cover too. (Need to haul stuff and the bed cover just makes it nearly impossible. In central Indiana if anyone is interested.
(Love all types of music but, as you can see, I'm a huge Metallica fan. Have been for the last 30 years, thus the decals front and back) \m/







Trying to think of what I should do next. Thoughts, suggestions? What would you do next if it were your truck?

Sweet looking truck.

How about some AMP steps or Katzkins?

Nice! 2nd the PTM. What engine? What year? IMO, the 12th Gen has better looking exterior than the 13th. I can say that, I've had both. Platform type running boards? Tuner? Exhaust? Keep it clean, as in no stickers or dirt?

It is a 2013, EcoBoost engine. It's already got the AMP Research automatic fold down steps and a Banks exhaust on it. Runs like a bat out of hell so I think the previous owner has it pretty well tuned.

If I had the means and access I would love to put Raptor (or something very similar) bumpers front and rear on mine.
