You are not afraid to put some pinstriping on the truck I see.
I know that I'm quite concerned about not having any decent sliders on mine. It will prevent me from going on anything much past a mild trail. I'm looking at RCI steps/sliders. The long wheelbase on the SuperCrew leaves us with a lot of body to damage. I wish the RCI steps/sliders also bolted to the frame and were even more than 11 gauge, but that's a lot better than the chrome steps from the factory. RCI has a video on their Instagram page of a guy jumping on those versus theirs - big difference. I'll also go with the RCI skid plates to help there, as the FX4 package ones are flimsy. We just don't have a lot of offerings to choose from. As I mentioned above, there just isn't much out there for the full size trucks in terms of roof racks, sliders, etc. Ford doesn't help things by not having factory mounting points for these things.Nice looking truck! I fully agree on the just right part - at risk of stealing your thread, I had the same priorities when building my F150 out. 2016 5.0 FX4 with Boss front and rear, wheels, tires, and a rack / tent set up. So far we've gotten quite a bit off the beaten path from California to South Carolina and everywhere in between and it's worked awesome. RCIs are on the list if we move back out west, as is a power solution / fridge some day. Otherwise, I don't need much else of anything. Good looking truck!
I just picked up a 2018 with the 2.7. Love that little engine so far.
Baja, National Luna and Leitner Designs, all make top notch products.RBA said:I've seen F150 "built" in two fashions on this site. Either a full blown better then a Raptor with upper and lower control arms which requires new body panels or basic shock upgrades and a few other accessories. Allow me to present option 3. A built up 2017 F150 that addresses several issues without going overboard (in my humble opinion).
I sea were your coming from. Badder english a noise me two.Yes, and I will correct yours too. 'Anyways', is the informal, non-standard form of 'anyway'; the latter is proper English, while the former is not.

Hopefully he will chime in with a trip report or two, along with any changes or updates that have been made in the last 18 months.
Just having a laugh, guys. I will delete it if the OP doesn't want it in here.
