    welcome to the new addiction. :) I remember you from mustang5g and your shelby(s).

    Feel free to take a look at my build thread and shoot me a DM if you would like any guidance. I went even farther with my raptor and now I don't quite fit in around here any more. :)

    Agree with ZombieKiller. It is an addiction. Set the budget high because once you start seeing options you are going to want them all.

    1) Replacement door speakers / tweets. Optionally components up front if you intend on amping it.
    2) dynamat or otherwise insulate the doors and wrap your sub box.
    3) used pedal commander; don’t buy new, they’re overpriced for what they do, but, they do make the “default” normal drive mode tolerable. can be re-sold if you get a tune.
    4) Bed bolt D ring tie downs (see @Talbor’s thread)
    5) decent forward facing lights + cheap amazon rear facing lights. if you tear up the rears, you won’t sweat it as much replacing $30 lights as much as you would $250 lights...

    Of course, none of our mods reflect what you may want to do with your truck.

    Oh, also: Who in their right mind buys a RED truck? :p

    Back off now smurf you know Ruby Red Raptors are the BOMB! IMO first mod should always be a catch can. Keep the beast breathing clean air with no second hand dirty oil! After that to each his own. Enjoy the ride 50 deep!

    Yup, but he did say flame away...

    Also, who in their right mind only has 5 mods?
    <thread-jack>

    I'm really surprised nobody listed the builtright center console mount and beside rack system, perfect for mounting all kinds of crap. Jmsboostmax 309, intakes are all the same imo and run 250 on up. Icon perch collars are only 300ish to level the truck.
