    I have a Leadfoot 2018 and not getting the hood graphics is my only packaging regret. I think the bed graphics are gaudy but I've seen enough Raptors with hood graphics on the road and at Raptor Assault that I think they would have been good. I say go for it.

    My thoughts as well. They don't look as bad on LF than most of the other colors but I'm still not a fan. They looked decent on Ruby Red back when it was available too.

    I added some simple accent graphics & have been pleased. Look at Rocky Mountain Graphics they did a good job for me.

    Originally ordered without graphics. When one arrived at another dealer sooner WITH graphics we decided it looked more like a RAPTOR at a glance which is what we like about it.

    Besides the personal preference to the look we actually have done 1000's of miles off road and the ford graphics (while expensive) have held up to the test of time with desert pinstriping, harsh tree branch/bush hugging, rock damage and everything else after 7 years.

    My point is that they are super durable (or at least were on our 2012 model) but if you just want the "look" then you can get regular vinyl's aftermarket for way less.

    i have an ‘18 LF W/hood graphics and I love them. Also helps cut down on glare from the sun. To each his/her own though.

    Hey Yugga, although I have a 2014 I had hood graphics installed about a year ago and love them. Totally made the front end 'less boring". And it helped with glare as well. I would suggest spending the extra to get good 3M product as well. I had them installed locally for $200. The graphics kit was from a company in Salt Lake I think. Hood.jpg

    Sorry, just add some info in case it helps anyone; the graphics were purchased from HotCarAccessories.com, and the install was $100 locally here in Colorado.

    I like going naked, but do like the good flat black look. For the price of stickers, instead have them painted on. Will look better in the long run. The stickers on my 89 dodge Dakota convertible looked like crap after 10 years of "fun".

    Although I have a 2012, I like the graphics. It definitely makes it stand out from other F-150s. MHO :)

    It does stop the glare off of the hood.
