here are some pics. I removed all the badges, even the one on the tailgate handle. Traded the front end from and XE, got an non chrome rear bumper and painted it. Also painted the tailgate handle, handle on the lower door on the rear of the bed, handles, mirrors, and cowl. The painted parts are clean, and the truck is dirty, so the color looks off, but it is a lot closer than the pictures look. I just want to wait a couple days to wash it, soft paint and crap... What do you think? I have the DRE coilovers on the way, and I will be going with the 305/65R18 BFG AT on the stock wheels.
P.S. the chrome rear bumper is for sale. I will post it up later.

Nice! That looks really stealthy! I especially like the matched mirrors and bib... Looks GREAT!!!!!!!

Did you do the mudflaps, too? Or are you losing them with the DR's and bigger rubber?

No issues with the swap, it was 08 xe - 08 se.
I will be loosing the mudflaps with the lift and bigger tires.

I was wondering how long it would take someone to notice that. It is not a real big mean motor though. Its a stock 5.0 out of a mustang, with some aftermarket gofast stuff bolted on. I am building a prerunner ranger 4x4. I didnt go inside of the motor for performance stuff yet...need to get the truck up and running, then maybe. Not much to show you guys on that yet + its not a titan.

Looks good. I was going to do the exact same thing with the paint but was holding off on the BT mirrors. Yours looks good in smoke.

A buddy of mine painted it. Charge was the price of paint, and a 30 pack. I thought you said you were a painter.
