    First mod she wants is a back up cam. Didn't come with one, and it has the small screen HU, so I'm either going to get the LCD mirror, or upgrade the HU to go with the back up cam.

    So the brakes the Ford dealer put on were the cheapest ones they could have found, and warped almost immediately. So, I ended up doing a complete upgrade front n rear with Power Stop drilled slotted rotors with Power Stop pads I got from RockAuto as a package deal for $325. They definitely made a huge difference in braking power.

They are pretty much Bilstein 6112's . Then swapped coils for a customer because he got a rear bumper and the ass was sagging, so I traded my labor for his Icon rear coils. Christa wants the front n rear coils painted pink, so while I'm waiting on the rear shocks to come from Headstrong Off Road, I'll paint them. Oh yeah, getting Bilstein 5100's for the rears.

    so now I have painted the coils pink as to her request, and now I'm just waiting on the rear shocks to come from Headstrong Off Road on Thursday.

    Finally the lift is complete, for now. In front is the Bilstein TRD Pro 6112 style shocks, but with only two notches. Spring is set on the second notch, got a daystar poly coil spring isolator to give the extra height from wheelers along with wheelers from super bump. In the rear are Icon springs I traded for labor and Bilstein 5100 shocks from Headstrong Off Road. Looks and drives great with this set up, and Christa loves it as well, so that's what counts.

    Any particular paint you used? I’m thinking about painting the ones on my wife’s runner. Have you thought about a slim line bumper?

    I think it was rustoleum 2x paint. So far it's holding up well. I'm bout to paint some OME shocks with the same but in blue for my Taco.

    I suggested it, but I think she's more in to it matching the sliders.

    Got the CBI bumper on Monday, Christa and I wiped it down with acetone last night, then primed it. Going to paint the inners tonight when I get home flat black, then tomorrow paint the outside Rustoleum truck bed liner.
