As promised here are some pictures of my 2012 F150 Lariat Supercrew Ecoboost, Max tow, two tone, bed extender, tailgate step, Backup camera.

I have done the following mods:
Replaced front license plate holder with standard bumper pads.
Added center grill in bumper (to fill ecoboost "hole").
Added Amp Research BedStep2 on each side (Ford does not offer bed steps on 5.5' bed).
Added BAK BakFlip F1 bed cover.
Added Dee Zee EZ Down to tailgate (for safty and cool factor).
Added McGard tailgate lock.
Added smoked license plate cover.
Added "Ford" lighted hitch cover.

Any questions please ask.

Very nice Bean. I really like that brown and that's first I've seen 2 tone and it looks great.

So the EZ down is some kind of struts for the tail gate?

Bean, nice! Now get some 30lb fishing line and "saw" those Ecoboost badges off of the doors (like flossing your teeth). A little GooGone on the remaining adhesive.

Why the tailgate lock? The Ford lock insufficient?

Bean - that's a nice looking truck.

The F1 flipback is a nice addition to the truck. I have one on my F150.

We had a heck of a time finding an FX 4 with the max tow package.

bean, my buddy with an EcoBeast wanted to put a screen in front of that "ecoboost" hole to keep the grasshoppers out of the rad, but was told that putting anything in that hole would void the warranty. Did you get clearance from the dealer to do that?

It seems stupid, as a rad plugged with grasshoppers is far worse that putting a lousy screen in front of it.

I have a grill for that stupid ecoboost hole -- the Ford Taurus with the ecoboost has a 'grill' over the intercooler. Wonder why they didn't include that on the F150?

Can't wait to get that silly hole plugged -- bet that feature comes out in future F150's. A silly screen? That won't effect the mechanicals.

I first thought that was a slot for a winch.
