Husband & Wife Team Work Together to Revamp their F-150

New black bumper makes YouTubers’ F-150 4×4 look much tougher than it had with the stock chrome unit.

There are lots of ways to make your Ford pickup a tough customer. A lift kit and some serious off-road wheels and rubber definitely works. Adding more power is certainly on the list. And of course, the right body kit can take your truck from mild to wild.

But sometimes, a mild upgrade may be all you want. Such is the case with YouTuber Jim K. Houle, who opted to give his F-150 4×4 a new bumper.

“Today, we’re gonna finally finish up the bumpers,” Houle says. “I got the black bumper… We’re gonna take this off to replace it.”

Thus begins a time-lapse removal and replacement of Houle’s F-150’s rear chrome bumper. With the help of his wife, the stock bumper slowly comes off the truck, the sun moving across the sky above.

With the OEM unit set aside, the husband-and-wife team place the new black unit on the blue F-150, making sure it fits perfectly against the bed. Together, they make their Ford look better than ever.

“There you go,” says Houle. “Looks pretty good, don’t it? I like that.” We definitely agree.
