Just took delivery of my new 2013 F-150 Crew Cab FX4 Ecobeast today.
Over time I will be posting my build progress in this thread.
These pics are bone stock.

Do air bags lift it too...? Are you going to upgrade the Factory shocks too?
It does lift the rear depending on how much air you put in it. My purpose for these are to eliminate sag when I'm towing a heavy load. And I will eventually upgrade the shocks but not right now.

What ones did you use? Did the auto up feature continue to work properly?

I used the AVS in-channel. And no, the auto-up is not working proper. I was going to give it a few days to see if it would seat better. If not I may change to the other style.

I put the AVS in on Wednesday night then had window tint done the next day, so windows stayed up for about 48 hours. The Auto Up feature still is not working correctly. I will have to think about what else I'm going to put on. They make another one that looks decent, but is not in-line.

After letting it set overnight with the window up, the auto-up feature works fine now.

I might have to pull it and start over. The passenger side works fine.

do you have any issues with the in channel vent visors? I was told that with the automatic up the windows would bump the visors and go right back down.

Yes. Neither of my front windows have the auto up feature. I have just been taking them up close and then slowly putting them up the rest of the way.
