Well, tonneau cover needs to be stripped/painted .. the FL sun hasn't been nice to it.
Gotta fix the lift, back end sits higher than the front. Planing on some interior LED's, some new off-road tires and maybe an some exterior lights ..
I guess we'll see what happens, everyone here has given me great new ideas too !

Truck looks good, some nice big offroad tires will add a lot to it. BTW, if you're not going to have a front license plate why not just remove the plate holder? Would definitely clean up the front end...

Ah you have some t-bar sag eh? Have you ever cranked your t-bars up???

Exterior lights, get some light tabs for easy no drill mounting!

Thanks !
Tom- I had a plate on there from my university, I took it off and can't decide if I want it back on.
Scooby - I don't think they're the same ..
RangerJustin - I'm thinking bout crankin' the T-bar soon, you think it'll be noticeable ?

The crank will get the front more close to being level with the rear depending on how much sag they have.

Scoob, those are stock alloys from Ford, not Mazda. I have the same ones on my rig.

I agree about taking the front plate holder off. I wouldn't put anything back on. Just my advice when you take it off....take it to the dealer, don't try to remove it yourself. On mine, it's not regular bolts holding the holder on, they're different and I think require special tools/technique to get it off. Ford fixed my plate for free when I messed it up, just use your charm and smile...that's what I did lol.

Also, your fog lights are cloudy, that's one thing that drives me mad about the Edge, those fog lights get moisture in them. Check the houseing for holes, and if there aren't any, I believe there's a film you can spay in there to keep them from doing that.

Torsion bar crank....could fix your height issue, but I DON'T recommend it unless you're ready for extra maintenance. It won't hurt your truck to do that, but the wear will be significantly faster. Just get your lift fixed. Get the bigger tires, get some bigger wheels, and you'll be set.

LED's are a no brainer, you can get those from Advance auto. The guys that work there can sometimes help you with ideas on how to hook them up, but don't count on it. I find my intelligence in that department is much greater than theirs in most cases. They know auto and engines...not wiring. When you get to that point, turn to the forums I plan on putting LED's in my truck soon, so I could prob give some pointers. One guy from here that's on my friend's list already has LED's in his rig, the one with a yellow edge...Olfordranger or somethin....


Anyhow...hope some of this helps give you ideas. That's what everyone's here for anyways, right? Good luck with your mods!

Girl...I totally feel you on that. I work 40hrs a week and am a medical assistant and still am slow doing mods cuz of low funds! The guys in our local club keep asking when Yellow's gonna get lifted and I just have to keep shrugging my shoulders. It sucks!

You should have them sponsor you or do a fundraiser for you!
