Cleaned up the f150

Ended up being pretty nice today sunny and about 40 degrees. Got the truck cleaned up after the snow the other day. I also did a quick chop to see what a painted bumper would look like. Hopefully this summer I can find a lower HD bumper with fogs to throw on it.

Yeah I know I've been waiting for a good day to clean it. Still needs a deep detail especially on the wheels, but next week is 60's has highs all week so it's on the list. Yep its got the 5.4 in it! I would hate to have the 4.6 in it lol. Be worse then the 3.0 in a ranger.

Haha yeah actually I have an edge programmer on the truck and that really woke up the sleeping beast. Did a 0-60 test in it today and pulled a 7.66sec which is pretty damn good considering how heavy it is and factory rating is only 260hp.

She looks B-E-A-UTIFUL.

Word of advice if it was mine:

If you want to run a billet grille, cut the old grille out from behind it. The Ford emblem mount looks tacky.

Loss the fogs behind the grille since you're not going for the 4x4 Offroad look.

DEFIANTLY paint the valence. Looks BA that way.

And how did you get a Sonoma? Did I miss a thread somewhere?

Cant cut out the honeycomb I wouldn't have anything to hold the billit in lol. It's only noticeable because the sun was shining right onto it. Lights in the grill are staying I like them, but I may go with a little bit bigger light. Btw that isn't an offroad only thing. Look at the 05+ mustangs.

Right right. Just my opinions on the girl. I defiantly think a bigger light would help fill it out better.
