    Can I get an opinion poll on what folks think of using Lightning Blue accents, similar to Jeffola, but on an Agate Black truck.

    Do people think the two colors would work well together, or do you think another color would look better?

    If anyone has photos of black Raptors with custom graphic accents, would love to see what you’ve done.

    Thanks

    Can the front tow hooks be removed easily? Interested in painting mine red but don't want to do it on the truck.

    You’ve got to pull the bumper, but it’s not super difficult. The first few minutes of this vid will show you:

    Not my cup of tea, but to each his own. I can certainly appreciate a guys need to make his truck his own and personalize it to his needs/liking.

    Just an FYI to those thinking about masking off the front tow hooks and painting - just remove them, it is VERY easy!

    I decided to fully remove my front bumper today to then remove the tow hooks, and was pleasantly surprised that I only had to remove the skid plate. Once you remove the skid plate, you can maneuver the rubber tow hook trim around enough access the two 15mm bolts holding the hooks in place. The bolt toward the rear of the truck is easy to remove all the way, and you only need to loose the bolt closer to the front of the truck as the tow hook is designed to allow you to slide the bolt completely through a notch. Easily removed both tow hooks in less than 15 minutes, and now ready to paint!
