    Outfitting the new-to-me 2018 F-150....EcoBoost specific thoughts?

    My thoughts: The ballistic nylon ones I had in another truck were tough, but slick and hot. Not a fan. I’ve had neoprene as well. The odor was strong at first, but dissipated over time. They were thick and that affected the way I felt in the seat. May not be an issue with the newer covers...

    Outfitting the new-to-me 2018 F-150....EcoBoost specific thoughts?

    Nice truck. I think catch cans were a must for preventing carbon coking on the intake valves in the pre-2017 3.5’s, but with the additional injector Ford added in 2017, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal anymore. That being said, boosted engines will have more blow-by due to higher block...

    I’d keep the lockers on the driver’s side only. Passenger side visibility is terrible on these trucks, even with a convex mirror. Having clear sight lines out the passenger side of the rear window was a must in my truck.

    2014 F-150. Bilstein leveling kit set at 1.75” up front. OEM Raptor wheels in black and 285/70R17 Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus. Liking it so far.

    2015 F-150 Adventure Rig

    It’s a better setup than most side steps that use the factory mounts on the rocker sheet metal. RPG Offroad makes some for the Raptor that might work, but they are ridiculously expensive. I’ve had White Knuckle Offroad build me sliders in the past without the mounting arms. Not too hard to...

    Oh, the joys of vehicle shopping....

    In the grand spectrum of things? Nothing. There are so many F150’s out there that everyone should be able to get what they want. This one had the options that the OP was talking about, so I thought it was on topic.

    I went through this whole process recently. Ended up finding a 2014 5.0 F150 with only 32,500 miles. Pretty awesome (despite being somewhat ubiquitous) build sheet too. They are out there. Just need to be patient.

    2015 F-150 Adventure Rig

    Based on the few videos and pictures on the internet, you can see that there are two skeletonized boxed brackets per side that bolt the rails to the frame.

    How much do you think the E rates tires contributed to the ride quality? Been agonizing over tire selection for my F-150.

    Just watched the old girl drive away on a new adventure to Michigan. I’ll let the new owner introduce himself when he has time. Great guy with a cool GM veteran dad. Safe travels Gents!
