2012 Ford F-150 - Overnight Success

Simple Styling Made This F-150 a Head-Turner

Maxwell MatthewsonAug 29, 2013
Casey Tucker of Odessa, Texas, is a red-blooded, truck-loving American. When he needed a new truck in 2012, he picked up a new Ford F-150 with the 3.5L EcoBoost. But living in Texas meant that Casey couldn't be seen driving a stock truck around. That is where Complete Customs of West Texas came into play. The shop, in McKinney, Texas, is a one-stop, do-it-all, custom vehicle shop. Knowing this, Casey called upon Shaun Frielich, owner of Complete Customs, to turn his truck into a head-turner, which was completed in a matter of 48 hours.
After bringing the truck into the shop, Shaun and the guys got right to work tearing into the suspension. The factory parts that were removed were replaced with Rough Country substitutes. This gave the SuperCrew eight extra inches of height. To improve the ride quality, a pair of Icon Vehicle Dynamics coilovers were bolted on up front and a pair of Icon shocks was added to the rear. Keeping the Blue Oval rolling is a set of 22-inch RBP 97R wheels shod in 37-inch Interco SS-M16 tires.
The next step was to give the Ford some added flair. A set of paint-matched Bushwacker fender flares and N-Fab front bumper add toughness, while four KC Hilites and a 50-inch KC LED light bar light up the road ahead. The front wasn't the only area that received attention, an N-Fab pre-runner style rear bumper with two more KC Hilites was added along with Spyder LED taillights. An Undercover tonneau cover ensures any cargo Casey keeps in the bed is secure.
With the exterior complete, the crew at Complete Customs switched it up and began work on making the interior a thing of beauty. This started by ripping the seats out and converting the factory cloth to premium black leather with silver stitching from Roadwire. In the dash, a Pioneer 4400 head unit powers a pair of Rockford Fosgate amplifiers, which in turn run the two Fosgate subs and four door speakers.
After only 48 hours, Casey's truck was finished. Casey said he couldn't have done it without the help of Shaun and the guys at Complete Customs. He also wants to send a huge thanks to all the companies that helped him on the truck.
