In order to complete the work in the wheels and tires department of our project truck we decided to cover the factory brakes with a set of aftermarket caliper covers. With the installation of large wheels, the calipers became exposed and clearly visible through the spokes, which doesn't always look good especially with dust and dirt that build up on them after taking the truck for a spin on a country road, so we picked the caliper covers to hide it and improve the cosmetics at the same time. Beside that, caliper covers give you that big brake look that we all love. It's not always necessary to invest much money in performance brakes if you are not gong to race the truck, so MGP caliper covers is a good solution for any project like this.

Watch how to install them on your truck in our next episode:

What do you think about this mod, and what else would you like us to install on this project truck?

Those of you who follow our build thread probably remember, that in our first post we've mentioned Recon Headlights. Looks like we were waiting for the perfect ones and their time has come! We chose brand new Black/Smoke "Mustang Tri-Bar" Style Projector LED Headlights, available for Ford F-150 2015 & up. These lights feature a sleek U-Bar design that provides any truck with a unique style. Engineered with your needs in mind, they offer unrivaled visibility and reliability providing many years of hassle-free service. Plug-n-play design makes the installation process a breeze.

Since we've already started to work on the exterior of our Ford, we've decided to go further and upgrade it with a set of awesome side steps. Nothing says off-road truck like a set of rock sliders on it, so we've choose one of the best examples of aggressive looking rock sliders on today's market – M1 Series Sliders from Smittybilt. They're crafted from durable steel into a 1.75" tubing, strong enough to fend off damage to the vulnerable rocker panels on your truck. Each step comes with a matte black textured powdercoat finish for maximum protection. The wheel to wheel design features dimpled steps and dual purpose rear slider flare in front of the bed, so you get easier stepping and access to your cab.

Easy to install with no drilling required, these sliders are designed for hassle free installation and rugged looks. As a result, Smittybilt sliders turn our Ford truck into the ultimate off-road getaway machine.

Today we are here with the next step for upgrading our Ford F-150 and we feel super excited about it. No other accessory will provide your truck with a tough, off-road style and an extra layer of defense between your truck and the trails better then an off-road bumper. We've searched for a long time and came up with another solid choice – Warn Ascent Full Width Front HD Winch Bumper. What do you think of when you hear Warn? Right, winches and toughness. Those 2 things are successfully combined in this bumper, along with refined, low-profile styling and ultra-durable 11-gauge steel construction.

It comes fully packed with utility features for both winches and lighting - this heavy-duty off-road front bumper accepts most WARN mid-frame winches up to 12,000 pounds and features integrated dual light ports to mount auxiliary flood or spot sights. This bumpers comes in a durable black textured powder coat, delivering up to 2X corrosion protection and also accommodates oversized wheels. The installation is a breeze - pre-drilled bolt holes and cutouts make it easy to mount a WARN winch, even after bumper install.

Watch our next episode to find out more:

With Warn Ascent Bumper installed on your truck you open up a world of possibilities for all your off-road adventures – you get the look you want, the rugged functionality you need and the highest level of protection. Now our Ford F-150 looks almost complete and ready to go for the next upgrade!

That would look sweet!! On my truck. Does it fit on a 2012 F150??.


2012 screw 3.5L
From the drop down options menu on the website, it appears that this is only for the 2015+ F150 models, at this time. But seeing as to how the box dimensions are VERY similar for the 2009-14 and 2015+, I think it would fit or be easily made to fit. ;)

There's no breakup quite like saying goodbye to your favorite car. From the very first ride to the long nights spent working on it in the garage, and to every road trip taken together, it becomes your closest friend. It happens to the best of them, and, unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to our most iconic project cars in the CARiD fleet - blue Ford F150 Ecoboost.

We've had the great pleasure of transforming this truck from a bone stock F150 Crew Cab into the epic vehicle that it is today, and now we have to let it go. Our new video is dedicated to our project Ford F150 as a reminder of the amazing time we've spent together.
