    picking up a 2017 f150 platinum

    Hi everyone,

    Im new to this forum, I ve had a 2003 ford f150 harley davidson supercharged and it was the best truck i ve owned so far and probably keeping it cause have way to much into it so sell it for 12k. I just bought a 2017 ecoboost platinum, i ve always wanted a turbo charged truck. I was wondering what performance mods you guys have done and what you think of them. I have ordered the ground force performance 1.5/3 lowering kit cause im used to the 2 wheel drive height, oil separator (which every ford pickup needs), afe intake w/ pipping, afe down pipe, afe side exit exhaust, 170 thermostat, hellwig sway bars, tce 16 big brake upgrade kit, npt tuner (not installing till the truck has been broken in) and would like to hear any suggestions. Thanks
    Also I will trade my chrome front bumper, chrome mirror skulls (regular mirrors not the towing ones), chrome window trim, chrome grill (grill has to have camera), chrome exterior door handles, and interior door panels for the black ones. I wanna sell the skid plates (it came with the off road package), ceiling console because i got a steal on the 2017 raptor one with aux switches and stock chrome 6 spoke wheels. Also dont want any of the platinum exterior badging or antenna (dont know why ford still uses those ugly antennas when you can just move them under the wiper cowl and works exactly the same). Im in arlington right over the bridge from wash dc. I was gonna get a lariat fully loaded but it was to hard to find one with the same options as the platinum and I got the platinum cheaper then the 2017 lariat the first dealer quoted me.

    Welcome and congrats on the new truck purchase. I assume this is the 2.7L engine?

    Awesome, I didn't realize there was that much aftermarket available yet. It'll be making some serious when you're done! Post some photos when you get a chance.

    thanks for the reply s. My main thing is getting all the chrome off, wheels and figuring out the stance

    We definitely need to see pics of this truck. I think the platinum badging is classy too bad you want to get rid of it. The easiest mod to do is the VTA. Cheap and brings a childish grin to your face.
