Hey guys!

The lease on my old F-150 is up so I got a new (to me) 2017 F-150 STX from carmax. It’s a 4x4, has the 5.0 V8, with the 6 speed trans and has the 36 gallon tank. The prior owner leased it in 2017 from a dealer in Washington, on my birthday, and barely used it. Truck has only 23k miles and it still smells new. Literally, it still has the new car small and is super clean.

My prior F-150 had the 2.7 EB and a 10 speed trans which I think I will miss, the torque of the 2.7 paired with the 10 speed made for quite the little demon. Especially with traction control off and in sport mode...such an animal. I really did want to find another 10 speed but the low miles and condition of this New truck.... I couldn’t pass it up. It had 99% of what I wanted anyways.

I don’t plan on doing much to this truck for a while. Might get a shell at some point if I can find a good deal but will probably go with a Thule Bed rack. I’ll be needing to get some new tires soon so will get those when needed....might do a little lift to level it out.

Also on the agenda will be better tint and a sound system. The F-150 in my avatar had an amazing sound system and I miss slappin some bass so an upgrade will absolutely happen.

Everyone meet Walter White!

Time for headers, Mustang GT intake, and a tune :)


Better door speakers and a sub were some of the first mods that I did to my 17 F150

The tires on it right now are Hankook Dynapro 275/55/20.... Thinking I'll get some Toyos...Not sure how I feel about the 20 inch wheels either, might upgrade those as well when I get new tires.

275/60/20 fit with no issues and 275/65/20 fit with a level (on the OEM rims).

I have 1 2010 standard wheel, and 3 "spare" 2014 regular wheels, but one may be KIA. I also have a friend who has four 2017(?) regular wheels. But a quick glance at craigslist seems like you'd have many options for sure.

I also have 6 Special Edition Beadlocks (I also have the beauty rings, 5 dark grey and 1 silver) that are on the truck/onboard spares which I've seriously considered ditching.

If you have 5.5 and want an OEM soft tri-fold bed cover before you get a cap I'd be more than willing to separate with it for a member discount.

I promise I'm not just trying to hawk my stuff either.

I will probably be up your way the first weekend in September for a cleanup at the memorial. I also drove by fiesta island just to see what that was all about. I love the fact that you can back your skis right into the water... I hate that its salt water though.

Update!

I took Walter in to get tint on all windows. 5% rears and 35% Front. Love it. First time I have done anything other than factory tint and the privacy it provides and how cool the inside remains is awesome. I also got some weather tech floor mats. Haven’t driven the truck since I “installed“ them but I mainly got them for the large rear mat for my dog and I liked the fit and finish more than the husky ones.

Update-

Ordered a 2-2.5 inch fox lift/level kit from stage 3 motorsports. Was debating between Bilstein kit and the fox kit. Was leaning towards the bils but the fox came in stock before bils and the price between the two was minor.

Also going to find some Raptor take offs...should easily fit 35s with the new suspension.

Pics to come in a few weeks! Also I took off those ugly running boards and sold them for $100
