Re: Whats your best mod for under $100

Grille swap is easy. At least, taking mine on and off gas been. I've done it three times for various reasons. Installed lower under grille light bar, ran wires etc It's dead simple...once you know where the clips are placed. Did the grille swap today (not under $100 though...bought the Raptor style...

Re: Whats your best mod for under $100

Mind sharing where you picked these up? I bought a Sport so minimal chrome (actually was a deciding factor to not go up to the XLT considering nearly all other features were equal) but I'd be keen on at least blacked out badges, but an FX4 grill would be great too. Was it just an easy swap out? XLS...

Mine would have to be a pair of brand new Wildtrak mirrors for $70. Taken off at the dealer to install clear view. Not only removed stupid chrome mirrors, but added puddle lights. $100 for a pair of new Wildtrak tailights, again remove chrome. $120 for the pair of OEM black Ford badges(close enough...

Re: My FX2 SPORT

My 21.75 XLT tub liner is different design to yours. It's actually also sunken, I gather because that inspection/cover panel is removed under the factory tail gate liner, it seems to sit inside there. I've also got the screw in tailgate end piece for the Aussie Tonneau cover (clip on version, clamp ...

Re: Noob offroading questions

Regarding the space for front bar I was in much the same situation, I had about 15cm to play with if I remember correctly. It was also pretty clear from my early off-roading that I had to fit a bar as the approach angle with the factory bumper was by far the biggest limitation. It took me quite a l...

Re: Stedi switch panel

I'm undecided between the Stedi or the LF switch panel. Lightbar/Work lights/RJ45 pass through switches and possibly one or two others. The stedi looks like a simple plug in, where as the LF, being more expensive too, does look like it fits better, but by all accounts is a pain to remove the side pa...
