Just pulled a baseline 0-60 of 6.7 seconds yesterday, and that’s at 7500 feet of elevation. Now let’s see what happens when it gets the juice!

Big lifted f250 passed me on the highway wanting to race earlier. So I showed him how fast a baby engine f150 is, caught up to his butt really darn quick. 19.86 psi enough for ya?

Got some black and red emblems to match the grille and tailgate emblems. I think they look awesome! This set came with the tailgate F150 letters too, but I couldn’t get a pic since it got too dark outside. I’ll post a pic tomorrow. Next up I will be getting elephant ears, tail lights, headlights, third brake light, front bumper, fog lights and yeah the list is endless. 😋😜

Some mean looking clouds covering the mountains as I drove into town yesterday.

Just installed my towing mirrors. I absolutely love them! These came with DRL and puddle lights which my truck didn’t have, but I’ll wire those in at some point

My 2013 XLT had the power wire in the harnes for puddle lights. Maybe you can get lucky on your truck too.
Maybe... was yours in the connector?

Purple wire on my year I believe.
Yeah. My mirrors are LED too, I am an electrician, but man, car wiring is confusing.

So I finally got down to relocating my license plate. I’m going to have a raptor style bumper on this soon that re uses the factory intercooler air dam and everything. I wasn’t too precise I just used some really short small screws with some washers so that the holes weren’t enormous. It’s kinda slapped up there, but it’s not crappy looking.

I’ve got some Pro comp 18x9 0mm offset black wheels on their way and of course I’ll update things as I begin using boostane. Till then, I just have a few mods left that I want to do, including floor mats, tonneau cover, and some graphics

Also, I personally decided I didn’t like the towing mirrors for a couple reasons, main thing being the butt ton of extra wiring I would of had to do to get the extra lights to work. I think the OEM mirrors are better quality too. I’ll be spending that money on something else.

Wow I’m surprised, personally I love them should’ve been the first thing I did. The visibility can’t be beat, the truck has no blind spot with those bad boys. But I understand there not for everyone. Nice looking rims you got there, good choice.
Yeah I know, I thought I was going to like them, and don’t get me wrong they look cool as heck, but when I considered the other reasons I had, the wind noise, they actually made an odd whistling sound I just was like, eh, I want to spend that money elsewhere.
