Line X, I have had several trucks with Line X and have never been disappointed
Tailgate damper
Weigh Safe 8" drop, but some say they could have just gotten a 6" drop
LED reverse lights really brighten behind in the dark, easy to install
FORSCAN!
I have Ford OEM wheel liners but see Husky brand have more coverage
Order the skid plates if you don't get the off-road package, $100 is worth the peace of mind
I love my tailgate step!
I have Weather Tech mud flaps but also look at Husky brand, no issues with Weather Tech though
I also ordered mine with the OEM all weather floor mats and like them, others may be better, again I like mine though
Roof Clearance Lights are just cool!
Just for a little additional protection a tailgate lock

1. My first must have was a tonneau cover to keep my 5th wheel hitch clean. It's funny how grease on that plate can attract crap out of the air. I went with the Retrax Pro and super satisfied, but many less expensive options here however.

2. Next up was mud flaps. Ya gotta keep the "whoflungdung" off your expensive tow/trailer. I went with Gatorbacks.

3. Lockable Fuel Door (Mod). Don't wanna be the one who tells a nightmare story about some bored kids dumping their Gatorade into my tank(s).

Then it was mostly Bling or Farkles, but... after my first heavy 2Kmi tow. I had to add Air-Lift Air bags under the rear axle. I'd say I'm done, but you know how that goes.....

First thing I did was window tint the next day and WeatherTech floor liners. I'm trying to decide currently if I'm going to level it, which front and rear bumpers, and need to get it bed lined. BedLiner is Line X, so no decision there. Tires will come when I wear out the factory tires. I hate wasting good tires even if I don't like them.

Agree with this completely, looks so odd the mix match windows.

That's quite a list - I'd like to see what you've done - would you be able to post pics of your truck, bumpers and shell?
