So I just traded in my 2012 fx4 and got me a new 2018 XLT Sport, 3.5L, magnetic grey, can’t wait to add stuff to it, i was looking if anyone has plasti dipped those wheels in black to see how they look, i also have the sct x4 from the other truck but is it not compatible? Do you guys recommend to do an oil change at 500-1000 miles? thanks!

Wicked looking truck. Congrats!

You'll be holding your breath forever waiting for your SCT X4 to be supported on this Gen2 3.5 (Or at least that is the current consensus)
I personally change the oil early on every internal combustion engine\device I ever buy.
How could it possibly be the wrong thing to do? :)

Welcome!!!! Sport mode in itself is pretty bad in the mean time:):)

Thanks! I guess i’ll try to sell the x4 and get the new one that is compatible, i haven’t tried the sport mode, just has 70 miles, i just want to run it for a few miles before i go crazy!

Sweet truck! I had the wheels on my ‘12 Lariat powder coated gloss black when I bought it. I’m extremely pleased with the durability and appearance of the powder coat. Is ther an advantage to either powder coat or plasti dip?

The advantage to Plasti dipping is that it cost like $6 a can. Also if you decide to change the color it can easily be removed and reapplied.

I have the same wheels/color truck. I like that the insert color matches my truck.

Plastidip it if you want to, it's your truck .

If you do it right it can look very good, and there are a few lines of products out there from other companies that are essentially the same thing, but look better than PD.

Especially if it's just an experiment to see if you're going to like the look, my vote is to go for it.

Y'all correct me if I'm mistaken, but I believe that support has been released for a while now.
