I was at my local Ford dealer picking up a cargo mgmt kit for my imminent delivery when I spotted what I thought might be an early delivery of my truck. Turned out to be a much pricier Lariat, but almost identical on the outside. Snapped some pics, and happy to say it looks even better in person! 😍 so excited for mine in a couple weeks!

Exactly what I ordered. Looks great! I'm going to add some Black letters on the back of mine to add to the package. Surprised Ford didn't do that themselves.

Are those mirrors black? I definitely prefer the body colored mirrors.

I really like Atlas blue. I really like the BAP. I'm not sure if I like them together though.

Believe it or not there has been a lot of discussion on the tailgate lettering. I also wondered why Ford left it looking undone. I mean, the stamped lettering is ok, but hard to read. Someone pointed out that it just means another way for us to customize our rides. Made sense.

Glad I ordered Atlas blue (an XL though). I hope mine gets built.

The BAP just needs a black roof to complete the look.

Supposedly the stamped lettering means the tailgate is covered by copyright which gives them another avenue to fight counterfeit parts. What I heard anyway. Seen it on other brands.

Good pictures, thanks for posting. Still waiting for my blue Lariat hybrid Lux - ordered 11-02-2021. Hope this is a good sign.

I think it was pretty smart of Ford... The color choices for tailgate letters are very much a personal choice, and my opinion of the "right" color is very much dependent on the color choice. My Area 51 called for black letters. I've seen a couple of Velocity Blue ones that had Chrome letters and just looked perfect. I saw a light gray (too distracted by the letters to be certain of the exact color - could have been Cactus) with red/white/blue American flag letters and it looked good. One of the dark blue (Atlas?) trucks had white letters that really popped. So I'm kinda glad they left it for the owner to decide what color to use.

I meant more specifically with the BAP. If there was no appearance package then any color would work, but for the BAP it would seem obvious to make them in black. I was going to do orange, but since I added the package I am just going to stick with gloss black. I also like the US Flag in Black too.
