I didnt see one of these threads. We have "what does it look like", "what did you do with it" and "what did you do to it" threads.

So I want to know what did you buy for your truck today?

Me, I just placed my order with Stage3 for the Bilstein 6112 front and 5160. Paid $899 plus tax. Looking forward to providing a full review!

Also fed it with $60 worth of 93.

Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words!

You could add what you paid for the thing you bought for your truck. If you want. That way we can see if it’s possible to afford it.

Someday I’m going to do Bilsteins.
Why did I think you already did? (Recently)

I don’t know. Maybe somebody’s truck like mine. I’m so afraid of the iwe’s suddenly go bad after that install. Sadly I’m still raked.

I looked quickly. I think it was because you were asking prices for install.

I guess I thought you had them and was deciding on where to take your business.

This was awhile ago but I did buy it for my truck. $1500 to transform the front of my truck. I painted to match FX4 grill, 6000k hid headlights. Love the white light output but Ford totally blew it on the getting the light pattern to the sides of the road. Not pictured is some Morimoto XB fogs. Another $130. I’m only posting this because it was my 2nd favorite mod I did to my truck.

I ordered a 13 inch antenna and a set of black Gorilla lug nuts. The factory Ford antenna hits my garage door every time I pull in or out of the garage. And I don't know what Ford was thinking when they designed the Lariat black appearance package. There is no chrome at all on the exterior of the truck, even the Ford ovals are blacked out, then they put chrome lug nuts on the truck????

Got a part# for those lug nuts? I've been thinking about swapping mine.

Mine did the exact same thing, did this a few days ago. I used a cutoff wheel, pulled the ball off the cut end, filed 1/2 inch of the good end to accommodate the ball, used lock tight and a few good bench smacks, touch up with black paint. Went through the car wash yesterday...no drama.

Others would say "tune" or "CAC" or "Rim/Tires" as the first mod on a new F150

But I'm convinced that the OEM F150 3.5EB is already a magnificent running truck, and thus the weak spot to address first IS what those boxes contain!
