Ideas for my 2012 fx4 crew cab

I need Ideas for my new truck. Pictures would help.
I am interested in a lift. not shure which one yet. 4" or 6"
I have kicked out ideas before but with no response

also would like to see wheels and tires

My truck is white
Lift won't matter in color but rimms will

also would like to change the grill

so far I have added 35 x 13.5 ProComp Extremes
Amp running boards
and a tool box in the bed

Custom grill- I hate the new grills their too beefy looking, no style IMO.
Black out the windows & add an eye brow (strip of tiny above rear view mirror)
Hid foglights
Replace factory speakers & add subwoofer.

Those are the things I normally start with, then the performance mods!

4in lift look better, not too showy and better mpg.

I've seen some white trucks with black rims and a black grill with the bumpers painted white, then get some tinted headlights... they look so so nice

and I've seen ones who go all chrome and they look good too, it's up to you I love those tires you have on now

I'd say do a leveling kit or 4" with those 35"s some black rims and a beefy offroad bumper on the front. IE: iron bull, road armor. I love the looks of white trucks with the big black bumpers. That is my next purchase.

Definately get some nice 5% tint. I see you already have the amp steps and a nice hidden toolbox.

Congrats on the new vehicle purchase.

i would so some black and machined wheels. easier to take care of compared to chrome plus you could keep the front end chrome if you choose or go black headlights and new grill.

if you do a lift, personally i like the 4" but its personal preference, truck looks great already.

Oh and you should trade me tailgates. You need the old super duty tailgate mod.

I was thinking about the 4"

However I like the truck as it sits for now.

I see many around town with the 6" they look good. I am not sure if the 35's will look good on a 6" The 4" will bring the truck up probably as high as my
F150 was but then this truck is longer.



the head keeps going around in circles thinking aboiut whitch way to go.

Stock hieght, 4" 6" windows tint, grill ?????????


One good thing !!! I have plenty of time to decide!
