Can we talk about your hood for a few minutes? That looks very sharp and I'm curious where this was acquired at.
Yes, the hood is from Amerihood. It's actually a real ram air hood. Underneath it's open right on top of where the airbox is. I had a cold air intake on it. The bottom is also finished as nice as the top. All factory are made to fit right on, washers, latches, hinges. I just actually just got their first one for my 17' Sport. Sitting in my garage waiting to go to the body shop to be fit and painted.

Just a few pictures. The painted is on my 14' and the new one is for the 17' Sport. They almost look the same. This at least gives you an idea of what they look like. I'm extremely picky and the quality is premium fit and finish. I like to give kudos where its deserved. Here's a phone# 909-248-2700

I was also talking to them about making a hood like the Raptor set up for Explorers.

Hey guys, new to the forum. Just picked up a 2015 Metallic Gray XLT for my wife. I got my Raptor in 2012 and have loved it so much, it seemed a good idea to stay in the Ford family.


Anyway, in the Raptor world, we install aftermarket lighting. In fact, we install A LOT!!! Suffice to say, I'm used to lighting up the night.

I dig the HIDs the Exploder has, but I feel it needs more. I'm thinking about installing my Rigid 20" LED bar behind the lower grill. I've done some searching but haven't seen anyone attempt this on a 5th gen truck. Am I just missing it or has someone attempted it.


Thanks in advance,


Todd

I have a 2014 with a Setina Push Bar.
I just purchased a light bar and plan on putting that on the flat section in the middle.
I just had the PIU delivered the other day so I haven't had any chance to look at things or tweak it yet with this miserable weather.
I do not believe that I have fog lights so I will install them on each side of the light bar.
It would be nice if someone rented out bays to work on vehicles. Electric but no lifts, no tools, nothing but a dry area to work on the vehicle

Have you actually checked for those? I just did a Google search and came up with several places that rent out garage bays.

Just found one a town over but it isn't in the best of areas.
