Gave 'em a washing, a clay barring, a polishing, and a waxing, all in 5 hours!

yup I took 5 hours out of my day to totally take care of both of my babies. I washed them, then clay barred, then used 2001 polishing compound then finished off with a layer of Maguiar's Gold Class wax a piece. Not to mention the wheels and tires.

Very rarely are they this clean, I doubt it will last long. (tomorrow)
I'm going to go take some ibuprofen and go to sleep now...

I think they were like $10 a piece through my local Ford dealership
they had to special order them though.
I saw them on like some 05 or 06 models when they first came out and thought it'd look cool so I got a couple.

I saw the new FX4 decals and I thought the same thing, love how people always mistake me for a 4x4. (hidden message)

I believe so, that's what I've always called it anyway but I'm not 100% sure if they changed it for the '03 year- '05 year
