With today being the first day of 2018 builds, wondering if anyone can sneak in some 2018 photos. Specifically the tailgate with and without the applique, the new B&O sound system (does the center speaker raise and lower?), and of course the new colors.

I have my suspicions as to why they did this...
1. Force all 18 owners to opt for the applique that markets FORD. (Cause no applique is ugly)
2. Cost saving measure over the F-150 badge on no applique.
3. Prevent owners from de-badging F-150 on no appique.

Not a bad idea..

Since I saw the new stamped tail I have been considering the applique or changing the color to something that will make the stamp less noticeable...

Ford dropped the ball on this tailgate... should say Raptor instead of F150 and leave the other Raptor Badge off... or just stick with the 17 tailgate.
