I replaced the EcoBoost Badge with one off of eBay love the black and red color.
Next is to do the same with the ford emblems. Also got rid of the stock STX stickers on the bedsides.(pic shows that the original ecoboost badge broke as I took it off, my fault, got impatient lol, could totally come off with more time.)

painted and dipped tailgate badge. Thinking of dipping the tailgate handle however not sure how the plastidip will hold up. Being close to the badge it makes the handle look drab.

I've been planning on dipping the chrome handles on my truck for a while, but haven't had the chance. Curious to see how yours turns out.

I’ll probably be doing it this weekend. I’ll update once I do

Finally got my raptor grill in mid week (after delivery delays) and got it installed yesterday. It fits perfectly and no broken tabs on my OE grill! Currently waiting for my LEDs to come in to make my own raptor style lights. Also installed my MBRP dual exhaust. Sounds great!

Where did you order your grill?
I got it from Toyota Accessories Guy, the shipping was no fault on his/they’re part, he communicated throughout the whole deal. Shipping delays over in Hong Kong and DHL. It was delayed with DHL so he had another sent through UPS and it got here really quick.

Awesome, thanks for the info. I'll check it out. What size tire and rim are you running?

They are 20.9 with 295/55/R20 Toyo Open Country. The dealer had them on it when I bought the truck, I may go down in size once these wear out. I’m liking the more tire vs rim look.

Agreed on the "more tire", especially on trucks. I've been looking at 17x9, not sure if I want to get 275 or 285, and 65 or 70. I've read a few threads that the 285s mess with mpg. I've only done a level kit so far, looking at deleting the resonator and getting new wheels and tires. Thanks for the info

Today’s project complete with my diy Raptor lights. Wasn’t too much of a hassle. Used smoked out amber leds from Amazon and a piece of aluminum angle that I used to make brackets for the lights and wired them up to the side marker light. Essentially, I just copied the raptor light set that’s on stage3 site and modified it. Didn’t like that you could see the metal of the bracket.
