KIETH'S 2012 F-150 BUILD

My building platform is a 2012 XLT F150 4X4 I ordered in Oct. 2011

The day she came home!!



The first thing I added was an extang tonneau cover.



Then a little privacy with 15% tint on side windows.



The next thing was to get the dealer stickers off.



2012 XLT F150 (Sterling Grey)
Tonneau Cover, 15% Tint, 6" Rough Country Lift, 18" Helo 6 Wheels(chrome), 35" Toyo Open Country A/T's, SuperChip, Rear Wheel well Liners, Hood Shield,
Window Visors, Fender Flares

I ordered a 6" Rough Country suspension lift and 18" chrome Helo wheels back in March, the lift came in but the wheels where back ordered

Here is the lift waiting to go in!!



Here is what the wheels will look like!!





So as I sit waiting, I need to do something to the truck with all the nice weather.
I painted the tail light edges.

I picked up some good 35" Toyo Open Country A/T tires off of kijiji and my wheels finally came in after a month and a half.



Time to install the lift!!
Both nervous and excited

Wow I can't believe I'm tearing apart a new truck



Now that it is done, I think it was worth all the work!!

Truck looks awesome Kieth, nice selection of mods and well done.

Glad you got the lift installed in time for the Listowel Meet & Greet, it was cool to see it in person.

Maybe its because they are pretty tame A/T's not something a little more aggressive looking or an MT.
