New 2012 F-250 Lariat FX4 - Katy, TX

Hello board. My name is Patrick. I live in Katy, TX (suburb of Houston). I just picked up my new 2012 F-250, Lariat FX4 last week. I have put about 400 miles on it so far, and I am loving it.

I am coming from a Suburban so I am used to 'big', but this is awesome. I am a Jeeper, so I was wanting something to tow my TJ with.

Before taking delivery, I had the spray-in beliner done, tinted front windows, had a hard roll cover installed, and a B&W goose-neck installed.

I don't have too much in mind for this truck in the way of modifications as I would prefer to keep my mod money in my Jeep; however, I do have my eyes on some Recon LED/smoke lens lights, and at some point some auto-drop steps. The stereo is pretty awful, so it might see some upgrades there, but I may never touch it.

Thanks guys! I can't say new wheels won't happen at some point, but I'm not really planning on it.

My Jeep would really be upset with me if I spent too much money on another vehicle.
Stereo, steps, and perhaps lights will satisfy me pretty well with this truck.

Ok. Threw the 'not gonna do anything to the truck' idea out the window.

Already installed - 20" LED lightbar in Rigid bumper mount.

Sitting in garage to be installed - Amp Research steps, Fab Fours rear bumper, 3" lift kit, 50" LED light bar, flush mount LED reverse lights

Ordered bu not here - two 10" JL subs, super crew sounds enclosure, kicker sub amp, kicker 'front row' signal processor, kicker 1/0 amp wiring kit
Still trying to decide on speakers. Have 4-channel speaker amp
