I like the color combo you have going. Now you need black headlights and corners, black exhaust tip, and maybe a slight tint on the tail lights.

Thanks. Great suggestions; especially the exhaust tip. I've been considering that one for a while now.

Works great as far as I can tell. The old one used to scrape on the ceiling in my parking garage at work.

I didn't realize that Ford changed the back part of the raised section of the hood like that.

Reg cab 4x4s FTW!

Neat truck!! Those are the same wheels I've been looking at but in 15x10 and possibly polished. I'd probably powdercoat the wheel center the same color of your truck and leave the outside polished. Anywho...neat truck and I agree on the headlights/corners and please leave the tails alone. lol.

The height differences of the 'dome' all around are alot less abrupt as well. Instead of like a 60 degree angle on 01-03's, 04+ have like a 30 degree angle. As noted above, they're aluminum compared to our fiberglass composite as well.

/endhack!





OP! Nice truck!! Welcome from a fellow PNW'r south of ya in the outskirts of Portland in a little town named Boring!

Small world. I spent a few years in Clackamas. Purchased my last two Fords ('01 Lightning and '03 Cobra) from Thomason Ford in Gladstone.

Looks good! I hoped you were saying you got a motorized antenna haha..I don't see how that would work though anyways. I really like the black toolbox in there. Def. Look into the headlight mod!
