I didn't like the silver valance and the fact Ford deleted the front tow hooks.

I traded in my 2019 for a 2021 after the dealer offered me more than I paid. I really didn't like the silver valance so I picked up a newone and sprayed it with Raptor truck bedliner. I think it turned out pretty good. Still waiting for the tow hook bolts and rubber inserts.

Once I get the bolts to finish.

That looks great. I never got why they painted those items silver. When I first noticed it I thought the part was salvaged from a silver truck. Where did you purchase the spray bedliner?

Auto zone, 16.99 a can. I was quoted $180 to do a vinyl wrap. I bought the new valance for $140 from Ford, tow hooks were $105, bolts and inserts were $50. So over $300 for everything but I used my Ford points for the parts so I'm only out of pocket around $130.

Looks good Joe. The tow hooks were not deleted. They come only on the 4x4 models. I agree on the silver valance. First change i made when i got mine was to plastidip it black. 2 years later and still looks good.

Wow, even on a silver truck the valance looks better in black.

How or what did you do with your front sensors? They are silver on mine. Looks real good, black.

IIRC they do pop out. If they don't just take some blue painters tape and cover the center of the sensor, trim the excess with a sharp razor blade. This way you only paint the trim ring around it and not sensor itself.
