I was planning on picking up my buddy's Pro4x bumper, color matching it, and then painting the grille black. Unfortunately, my work cut my pay after spending $$$ on other mods so I had to go a different route.

I told myself that I would not use a single drop of bedliner on my new truck. So, I lied........

Before:





After:




For the grille and bumpers, I picked up a scrub pad from the auto paint section at O'Reilly's, scuffed the clear coat off, washed with Palm Olive soap and then color matched/bedlined them.

I wasn't planning on using the Black Magic lights as backup lights, but when I bought them used, the seller didn't disclose all of the crap he did to them. If I would have known, I never would have purchased them.

I just sprayed my rear bumper off with a hose, so the wet spots are why it looks uneven.

Now, I just need to get the broken shock bolt out of my Icon's so I can installed them...

Haha...I was going to pick up a Dremel to cut the spacer off hoping that would free the bolt. But, my dad has to take his F-150 into a body shop so he is going to have them do it for me. It's just a matter of when he goes.

Yeah...if I can save up for some PRG UCA's, I can flip the hat and get about 4.5" upfront without sacrificing too much of the ride quality.

It came with some fogs, but I took them out because the wiring was all screwy. I may put them back in when I have the patience to sort through the mess.

The tires are Falken Ziex S TZ-04. The dealer put them on brand new, but they went with 285/60/18 which are too small for me. I am looking to swap them out for either Hankook ATM's or Goodyear DuraTracs.

The KING approves. :D

Lol, looks good man.
Thanks man. As I was scuffing everything up late Friday night I just kept thinking, "How the hell did THE King do this???!" My arm is going to fall off!

It didn't help that all of the teenyboppers in my neighborhood were running around at 10PM screaming about the Justin Bieber movie.

why the switch of headlights?
With the front end being darker, I think the black headlights compliment it better. I may black out the grille and drill 3 Hella's into the bumper like Scott @ Fontana Nissan.

I didn't have any real down time. The only things I removed were the grille and headlights. After I scuffed up and washed the bumpers/grille, I taped down the area with protective material and sprayed a tack coat late in the evening. It took me about 3 hours. I let the tack coat dry overnight, and then I sprayed 3-4 additional coats on Saturday morning. I let it dry for about 2 hours and then reassembled everything.
