Over the last few days I installed Vince's SVT centre caps on my Method Mesh wheels and did a tire rotation at the same time. I also mounted an SO Tech molle panel behind the rear seats on the passenger/middle seats and a velcro panel behind the rear seats on the driver side. I also finished mounting a 40mm ammo can on the e-track above each wheel hump for storage and a 30mm ammo can where I used to have my fire extinguisher (needs to be remounted somewhere else now) on the driver side rear bed near the tailgate. I have a second 30mm ammo can with recovery gear inside that I will just strap down against the mounted one for the time being. I also drilled and installed u-bolts on both ends of each ammo can so they can be locked by feeding a cable through them. I also got my used Staun HD tire deflators set for 26lbs and installed new Bosch Icon wipers. I also added some amber reflective tape in my fender vents to see if it will make the amber light strip inside a bit brighter, if not, I will remove the amber strip and install an amber KC Cyclone instead (hope the tape works instead!!). I also got my co2 tank re-certified and refilled. I will try to get pictures but since the last upgrade I cannot get my mac to download pictures from my iPhone.

Do you have rear flares? Other pics of the truck?

Flares are color matched, same as the front.

The only other photo on my phone.

for some reason the white against white in the first picture made your rear quarter look wider? almost like aftermarket. lol

I did the unthinkable, took my Raptor to the local ford dealership to have them check out a small coolant leak as my warranty is about to expire in February or 800 miles. I hope this doesn't turn out to be a mistake.

Offroad good, they will come off, guaranteed regardless who makes them. They are too low.

I would suggest cutting into your bumper and installing some flush mount lights. That's what I ended up doing.

Rick these things are so dead on its ridiculous. The ADD bumper has already welded tabs made for the lights. NO need to cut into anything. 2 cubes both sides and 20 and 40 inch bars tabs. Balted dead on...Solid install unless you take a hammer.
