    Hello, my name is Joe. Just bought a 2019 raptor, which is not only my first raptor but also my first truck! Needless to say, learning as much as I can but a little overwhelmed at times. Realizing I need to take baby steps before attempting big ones.
    right now, my plan is to:
    1) line-x premium bedliner and truck gear retractable bed cover
    2) rough country fog lights, prob will pay dealer to install them (I have close to 0% experience with electrical/wiring work)
    3) undercover swing case(s). My understanding is there are some questions related to durability, but I don’t plan on hardcore off-roading any time soon
    4) mid perch mod vs RGB leveling kit (i may attempt this myself after ample learning/preparation)

    open to criticism, and thanks! Glad to be here

    I'm definitely investing in a lift at some point. Your truck looks awesome! Love the roll bar

    @Raptor62430 Ended up going with an ArmorThane liner and LoMax cover. Next items on the list are passenger swingout case and 2" lift
