At this point we're knee deep in the latest Truckin project, this 2010 Ford F-150 SuperCrew XLT. It was pretty well used but definitely not beat up. We decided that a full build-up was in order, where we would hit several areas of the truck with simple but effective upgrades that would enhance both its form and function without breaking the bank.
The first installment included Readylift SST lift kit and EBC Brakes rotors and pads, followed by the Fuel Vector 18-inch wheels and Fuel Gripper A/T tires. Then for our second act we ditched all the exterior chrome for a mix of parts that included a Raptor-like front bumper and grille, a factory Raptor rear bumper, and a killer set of flush-mounted side steps from Addictive Desert Designs. This is where most people call it a day, but we still have a few tricks up our sleeves.
We were lucky that the one accessory that this truck already came with was a paint-matched SnugTop lid. It's their top-of-the-line model, which includes the underside of the lid being carpeted gray. We were not-so-pleasantly surprised when we raised the lid to find that this truck had evidently served the previous owners well. The bed floor and inner bed sides had taken a beating! It's not like it had holes or rust or anything, but small dents and deep scratches were everywhere.
One of our favorite solutions for cleaning up the bed area of truck is installing a BedRug. Why? It's super easy to install and looks really good. It will even match the SnugTop lid perfectly! We placed our order for part number BRQ04SCK and had the large box at our doorstep in just a few days. We headed back over to the MotorTrend Group tech center, and an hour or so later all the damage to the bed was forgotten. We were one step closer to calling this F-150 transformation done. Stay tuned, we have a couple more surprises left before the big reveal!
