    Ok finally got around to doing this yesterday. I swapped out the stock license plate light housings for the F250. The F250 comes with LEDs but they aren't that great. The main reason for doing this is to redirect the light at the actual plate and not up towards the backup camera so upgraded (brighter LEDs) don't wash out the camera. The after picture isn't all that great but you get the idea. Nassty posted a better "after" picture. All said and done I was probably spend about a 45 minutes on this. Take a look at the link in the quote, it will save you a TON of time.

    Before (notice that upward direction of the light):

    After (light directed mostly at the plate, barely any on the tailgate):

    Sunjoe like 2300 or something, added 25 ft hose extension. Cannon is some $30 job from Amazon. Works great on all of my cars not just Raptor.

    Finally got the call that the Tie Rods were in stock at RPG.

    Stage 3, new upper A Arms, Steering tie rods, Deavers +3 with a shackle to get some articulation out of it. Plus installed some rear lights .[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    My wife thinks I only have 3 guns

    Super subtle most of the time, but a great look in my obviously biased opinion.
