    Finally Bought One!!

    Well I have been lurking around for a few months. I picked up my 2014 FX4 on Sunday. I live in NC but picked this truck up at a dealer in northern VA. Extremely happy with my purchase so far. 3.55 gears. 402A package. Moon roof. Just graduated college a few months ago so its a big step for me. My previous vehicles were a 91 F150 4x4, 66 Mustang, and a 99 F150 4x4. This will be the first without a V8 so I am anxious to see what these turbos can do.

    Thanks y'all, been saving up for one for quite awhile. Going to get the bed Line-x'd on Friday and pick up a black UWS tool box. Over the next month or so I will start to add a few small mods. Not going to tune right away. I know thats where you get the power from but not wanting to have to deal with Ford if something goes wrong. Will eventually go with an SCT tuner. As of now looking like new running boards, red badges, Xb fogs when they come out, Rigids on the front and back, AFE stage 2 CAI, AFE 4inch Exhaust (might add an MBRP resonator depending on sound), and a UPR dual valve catch can. I will start a build thread when I start to get everything ready.

    Anyone have any hints about how to drive this thing to get good mileage? I am only getting about 15 highway right now.

    Don't put an exhaust on it. Don't VTA. and don't do anything else to make it sound better. Those mods tend to make the right foot a little heavier...

    Oh and nice truck. Congrats and welcome
