Noise wasn't really increased, just a tad.......pulls alot harder and stronger on the highway

Power? Definitely increased.......I can now easily break the rear tires loose

Next week, the AFE Charge Pipe goes on

This was the only odd part of the instructions........10A and 10B.........I did not see the need for the hose barb and used the NPT plug

My truck is a 2012!?

Is that a "tornado" intake pipe insert?

Ya it comes from the factory like that. I thought it was kinda bizarre the first time I saw it in there.

I went with the S&B dry filter. I hate oiled filters.

I'll also add, get tuning sooner than later. I was running an intake and catless DP (stock muffler) on a canned SCT tune. When I went to a custom tune from 5star it dropped my coolant temps 10 deg and the truck ran a lot smoother. The computer just can't adjust properly for the extra air unless it's programmed correctly. You'll run into a lean condition which is no good for anything.
Look into companies who will update the tune for free for future mods if the parts are bought through them. I know 5 star does. I've been very impressed with their customer service.

Alot of people are also claiming very good results from swapping in a 170° tstat, to keep temps down

I would love a tuned truck , but I also worry about warranty

I just bought a Timbren FR1504D SES for $115

New, just needs a bolt kit....which shouldn't be much at all, from a local hardware store

With my truck's 3" tall rear blocks, the factory rear bumpstop is right around 6" away from the axle

This might put the Timbren 2" away from the away axle, but I am ok with that gap.......Timbren says that there should be a ½” to 1 ½” gap between rubber spring and axle to ensure unloaded ride quality

I found a used tailgate access panel, so I can finally remove the plastic tailgate liner and the stripper pole

The cap will come off the bed soon, along with the factory bedliner...........so that everything can be sprayed with a bedliner.

I love LineX, but hate the price.....I am currently exploring other options and prices

Subtle front end change........from the bright blue oval grill emblem to a grey and black emblem

Subtle, but nice

You will hate life after these are installed. Hope you have a back brace.

I installed these on one work truck. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. Very very harsh when they hit.

I love the concept and was looking forward to installing them on all 60 of my fleet, but after the first one went on, I knew I made a mistake.

Hopefully they won't touch when running unloaded, you will know when they do though.

Hopefully with the 2" taller than stock rear blocks, they will only touch when needed

I could see it being an issue with stock rear suspension setup

Damn, the dealership told me that rattle on cold start was due to my aftermarket exhaust. Looks like it's going to the dealer

550 miles (one way) trip to Lake of the Ozarks....... three adults, bed fully loaded and packed, pulled a travel trailer

Had horrible timing chain rattle "type" noise twice, had to let off the throttle and ease back into it

Not sure it was timing chain rattle or slapping, but it killed power and sounded bad

Misfire from moisture maybe?

See what happens on the trip home in two days

that sounds like something different then what my truck is doing. My only rattles on a cold start. It will rattle for a 1-2 seconds until the hydraulic tensioner catches up and takes the slack out of the stretched chain. i took it in, inspected it, and said it was covered under warranty. *cough* running MPT tunes *cough*

just took our '13SCREW XLT max tow on 8,000km (4300kms towing) round trip tour of our east coast, 24'TT 3kids wife dog & I.

doubt it's related, but when towing heavy loads this truck likes premium fuel. added cost was offset by better mileage, not a lot but every bit helps. I use tow mode UNLESS coasting/downhill, as it gears down un-neccessarily.

never experienced any engine issues since day 1, and just over 91,000kms on it now

W710734-S439 - $1.08 ea

From what I have found, I will need 13 bolts, that are 6mm x10mm ........I will just try to buy them local, rather than $1.08 each

Remove the plastic tailgate liner, remove the pole and brackets..........and install this patch panel

Removing Tail Gate Pole - Ford F150 Forum - Community of Ford Truck Fans

Picked up this used panel



Going to take everything off the tailgate and see how it fits......then off to LineX
