My new 2013, FX4, ecoboost arrived at the dealership yesterday so I took my 2004 F150 FX4 which I bought new, hunting one last time and handed over the keys today. Sure hope the new one is as trouble free as this one has been.


Now the new one. 2013 Black, F150, FX4, Ecoboost, Maxtow. I got it home and put the bed rug in it right away along with some weathertech mats. I got some Husky mud flaps as well but I am having trouble drilling a hole into my new truck to put them on. It goes in Friday morning to have the topper put on.

Having an 04 fx4 as well I can say I understand any feelings of not wanting to trade. However having a 13 ecoboost, shudder free so far, runs pretty awesome when running good! I think you'll really like the new one.

Nice bed setup!

Very nice! I been out shopping toppers and bed liners. I'm really wanting to try the bedrug this go round.

Am I understanding right that you built the shelving? Can you explain how you did it? It must be in sections to remove?

I thought weathertech mud flaps were no holes drilless. I put holes in my truck last fall. I will be taking the flaps off & ensuring I primer up the metal & repainting. I want the clipped on weathertech flaps. Cost more but no rust starts with holes. I hope I didn't screw my truck up already ;(

You'll love the power ... remember that when you are filling her up and all will be good.

I have a set of weathertech flaps under the tree to open tomorrow. Can't wait to install! Will hopefully stop the salt and mud from flinging up the side of the truck and covering the side steps.

Yes I did, I took 3/4 plywood and cut it into 3 sections to fit the bed of the truck. I then screwed a piece of angle iron to each side of the plywood for strength then I wrapped each section with marine carpet. Make sure that when you are figuring out how wide to cut your plywood sections that you figure in the angle iron and carpet. On my old truck the topper I did not have the liner so I attached angle iron on the lip of the topper as a track for the shelves to sit on. The new one with the liner seems to be fine since its just carpet on carpet. Having it in three sections is nice because if I want to haul something tall I can just stack them up.
