7.3l Upgrades

I have had my truck for a little over a year now and have put a fair amount of money in it. When I got it it was bone stock except for a cold air intake. I put the 2008 exhaust system on it (without the muffler and cats of course) which someone told me was supposed to lower egts but I just liked the way the tip looked. I also replaced the backerpannel, grille, and headlights with some out of a 05 harley davidson with a HID conversion kit. I put a TS performance 6 position chip on it also. I replaced the mirrors and taillights with ones off a 08. I also installed smoked recon cab lights and turn signal covers. I recently did the foil delete and decided to paint the intercooler pipes and a few other things under the hood ford blue. (I know international makes it but I didnt want orange under my hood).

Ironically, the International T444E is blue, almost the same as the "Ford Blue."

Truck looks good man, not a real big fan of the spot lights but to each their own. Your intercooler pipes look like they came out real nice, and your tails are really dark do they still throw out enough light to see the brake lights during the day?
