What is your favorite mod?

It doesn't seem like we have a favorite mod thread lets get one started!
Now there are all sorts of different mods for your car, name your favorite functional (something that serves a purpose on the car) and nonfunctional (something that does not affect the car such as a body kit) mod

Functional - I have to say my retrofitted headlights are my favorite
They light up the road so much better I can drive better at night. Money well spent!


Nonfunctional - 3D Carbon rear skirt. How can you not like this?

Off-topic but that's a sharp looking 08-11 right there. Have you considered blacking out or tinting the ford emblems? I did it on my white f-150 and I love it.

^ just a black oval or making the blue black?
If it was just a black oval I don't think that'd look right and if you meant make the blue black I have not thought about doing that and am unsure about how to go about doing so

1) Warm the Emblem with a hairdryer for about 2 minutes. Turn it over and carefully pry around the perimeter with a thin flat object. Now you'll have the front (painted) part (piece 1) and rear seal (piece 2) seperated. Set piece 2 aside where it won't get dirty, the adhesive on it is enough to reseal the finished emblem. CAUTION: if you don't warm the emblem enough before prying, you will crack the clear portion!

2) In order to change the color you must remove the stock color. On the front of piece 1 you'll notice the silver "FORD" is raised on a blue background. When you flip it over the "FORD" is inset and the background is raised. Take fine sandpaper (or a fine emery board) and carefully sand away the background color.

3) Now paint the backside of the emblem any color you want. Touch-up paint or Testors model paints and brush will work fine for this. Allow it to dry thoroughly.

4) Put the 2 pieces back together. And admire your work. If you broke off the mounting tabs removing your emblem, 3M auto adhesive tape works great.
