Swapped my XLT grille for a Lariat one (picked up for costs). Like to think I’m one of the first to install raptor lights on the new 21’.

STX grille swap is the way to go, 100% I'll be doing it immediately. I have had the same grille follow me on my last two F-150 leases. Lead Foot and Race Red, next is Space White or Race Red

Was the blacked out Ford badge a replacement or an overlay that are advertised on the internet.

Awesome build. Thanks for sharing. Definitely want to try something like this myself. Hate the grill that comes on the XLTs.

Which amber light kit did you use? Did you use a plug and play adapter or did you have to splice ? Looks great.

Do you know the offset on your wheels? I'm still up in the air on replacing my stock 18's.

Looks great! I’m also curious about how the grill comes off. Is it similar to the previous models? The painted piece under the grill has two screws on each side and then pull it away from the truck, exposing the bolts for the grill?
