Well the time has finally come that I am tired of the door handles, mirror caps, chrome fender and rear badge as well as the silver FX4 fender badges....so I will be painting the next week or 2 and will update with pictures.

I currently have new FX4 fender badges at home...DSG outline with Flat Black interior "FX4 Blackout" (had to). I will also be painting the fender and rear badges and have some Flat Black inlays from Patriot Decals going on. The door handles and mirror covers will be coming off and getting a nice treatment with some Krylon Satin Black....and debating switching the exhaust to true duals with an X pipe, just have to wait and see. Also have a new Recon White Lightning bar on order...Plasmaglow has begun to leak and fog.

I also added a black billet locking fuel door and new front and rear badges (skulls) (pictures to follow)

Here is what it looks like now: Only thing chrome left on the truck will be the bull bar which will be staying Chrome.

And after painting this wekeend:

New Items:
Black Billet locking fuel door
FX4 Blackout bed decals
Painted mirror caps with Krylon Satin Black
Painted chrome door handles Satin Black
Painted Ford fender badges and tailgate badge Satin Black
Added vinyl inlays from patriotdecals.com in Flat Black
Punisher front, rear, steering wheel decals to cover Ford emblem
Recon White Lightning tailgate bar to replace leaking Plasmaglow

Still debeting on changing my exhaust to side pipes and putting dual black tips on each side or just one.

Ahh, now I see. I thought he had already done it. And daven's post threw me off a bit he made it sound like it was already done, lol. My bad. Look forward to seeing the truck with no chrome.

^^ x2... Bullbar in chrome is just a lil' nasty IMHO. Personally I'd ditch it all together, however to each their own. Rig's come a long way in the time you've had it, looking forwards to seeing it all blacked out icon_smile.gif

New badges are on....took pictures but my old camera wont upload to my new computer because I dont have the right ports and dont have a card reader...New camera is in the mail so when it gets here I will update with pictures. Hoping to get some painting done in the next week or 2, weather sucks right now and don't have the ability to leave the truck in a garage until after the 28th

Bull bar will be staying the same....may powdercoat or buy a black one in the future but trying to save money for the time being.

Looks great. icon_smile.gif No offence and I'm not trying to be a ****,but those Punisher decals on your Ford emblems look a bit corny. icon_confused.gif They would look awesome simply blacked out like your other factory emblems. icon_cool.gif Oh and have you thought about blacking out your rear tag frame and hitch plug?

Those taillights look soo cheap, tint the **** out of them! I would also lose the emblems and the decals, looks good otherwise.

Looks great, I no thinky the Punisher emblem looks corny... IM just happy you did not put a Superman emblem on there, for some reason ive seen alot of Superman emblems around STL lately.

Looks good man. What made you paint the F150 emblems instead of just removing them?

I'm not positive,but I think the 04'/08' F150's actually have holes underneath the emblems. icon_confused.gif So maybe that's why he left them on there.

side pipes (out the back of the tire) are ***..personally I don't them..go with straight it'll look that much better and sound much better

After reading some more don't do any of that before the tire ****..that looks even worse.

My vote: Straights with black tips would sound and look sexy as ****.

dont like the under the tailgate look....Its either going to be before the rear tires or angled out both sides behind the rear tire....as of now leaning towards behind rear tires with black tips.

Would have removed badges but they are held in by holes like mentioned...I would need to have them filled, sanded and painted...not worth the hastle or money.

Thanks for the comments guys icon_cool.gif
