Not bad, I've never really been a fan of the hood scoops and bushwackers personally. Any chance it could be body lifted? His front hitch hangs down about 3" more than mine.

Looks like a sick rig. Not much of a fan of the hood scoops but has an awesome stance.

I don't like it honestly.

To me it looks like 6" fabtech and 3" body lift.

I don't like the gay fake scoops, the grille, the red line down the side, the bull bar hanging down there, the tail light covers. I don't really like the fender flares, but they look okay on some F150s. This truck just looks too busy to me. I think 4-6" and 35s look a lot better. Besides I wouldn't want to run 37s on the IFS anyway.

Yeah I'm not a fan of anything over a 4", it just looks to redneckish for me. I have much more clean and simple tastes though which a lot of people don't have. Too each their own!

I'm with Brian. The lift looks like a 6" Fabtech and body lift. The hood scoops are gay. Never been a fan of bullbars or giant aftermarket flares. And I think the missing centercaps on the front looks bad. Also think the stock grille would look better. It just has a lot going on with it. The lift itself isn't what looks bad, I think this is a good example of why less is more.

yeah i agree with you guys, i just thought it was a good looking truck for the most part. its very busy though, and alot of the **** i dont like, but any truck thats got **** done to it i like, they all have their own coolness i guess haha.
And yeah after doing research and talking with some people on here and over on f150online 37's are out of the question, so Ill probably go with a 4" lift with 35s MAYBE a 6" although most of the 6"s are too high in the front for me
