Default NE Ford Build
Bought my 2010 in May of 2016 and since then I haven't done much (previous owner did quite a bit). Now that I've got a few projects lined up I wanted to start a build thread 1.) so I can document my progress and 2.) to hopefully help others along the way when it comes to modifications.

Modifications already on the truck at the time of purchase:
Mid Perch
American Eagle Alloy 012 wheels
General Grabber AT2s
Smittybilt XO2 winch with synthetic line
Hidden winch plate
Vision X 4.5" Light Cannons on hood mounts
WSI Faux Hawk light tower with actuator
40" RS Sport lightbar
KC Cyclones as rear ambers
SCT tuner with 5 Star Tunes
K&N intake and air filter
Alpha 1 dual spare tire carrier
Harbor freight 2 ton jack with skid plate
.....I think that's everything

Besides some creative wiring to keep the truck running below are the modifications I've done up to this point:
Black Widow exhaust with J-tube resonator
Vision X Optimus spots with amber covers to replace the KC Cyclones
KHC Jack Handle Holder
RCI replacement skid plates

Upcoming projects:
RPG Stage Three Suspension - thanks [email protected]
Rear bumper
Dovetail
LVJ relay panel with additional factory upfitters
30" Vision X amber bar behind the grill

I'll update this thread with my progress as well as my instagram page @SVTsullivan.

Truck as it sits today:

Surprise project: bed stabilizer. Nothing fancy, just something to keep the bedsides from flopping around.

Bring on the hate.

Installed the 30" bar behind the grill today. Had to get creative to get the spacing right. This seems to be a popular spot, how are folks mounting theirs and should there be any concern with the extra weight on the grille supports when the truck is bouncing around.

Not sure I'm in love with the look but I had the lightbar so I figured I'd give it a try for a little bit.

Yes I'll be dovetailing the rear. The plan is to put it on next Saturday. There will be plenty of pictures.
