Default My First Truck, 2017 Ford Raptor Supercrew
Hi, I’m new to the forum. I purchased my first truck, a 2017 Oxford White Raptor Supercrew back in July. I emailed probably nearly 25 Ford dealerships and found a Southern California dealer (near home actually) whom gave me a price that was very close to MSRP. I guess I was in the right place at the right time considering every other dealer in the area was 5 to 10 and even 15k over!



I just marked one thousand miles on the odometer. I love this truck! I purchased with: 802A, Moonroof, Ext + Hood Graphics, CF, FPBE, Tailgate Step, Beadlocks, Applique, Heated, Steering Wheel, Tech Package, Heated Back Seats, Spray-In Bed Liner. I am determined to perform all of the customizations myself.



First modification is running FORSCAN: Secure Idle Enable, Panic Alarm via FOB Requires 2 Presses, Heated Wheel & Seats on Home Screen, Auto Start Stop Disabled, FOB Global Open/Close, Double Horn Disable, Engine Temp & Transmission Temp Shows Above Gauges, and Stereo Extended Play 40 Minutes.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=815852466

I swapped out the paper air filter for a K & N. Eventually I’d like to swap out for an aftermarket air box, but waiting for a few more CARB certified optins to hit the market. Next, I installed the UPR Dual Valve Catch Can.





UPR 2017 F150 Ecoboost Plug n Play Dual Valve Catch Can Pro-Series™ Check Valves

I decided to go with the Retrax MX Retractable Bed Cover. It’s aluminum with a matte powder coat finish.





I was surprised to find some mild surface rust and paint peeling on the rear end. This kind of quality is not up to par with the price, but it’s an easy fix.









I sanded, primed, and painted prior to installing the Hellwig Rear Sway Bar #7743. Cornering has improved tremendously, but I realize the rear sway bar on a Raptor isn’t for everyone or any extreme off-roading. I could always disconnect if required.







A truck wheel well should not be white! This is especially true on a Raptor. I purchased the U-Pol Black Urethane Spray-On Truck Liner Kit and gave it a go.











After masking, I sanded with 180 grit paper followed by a scotch-bright pad. Cleaned with compressed air, wiped with isopropyl alcohol, and sprayed. Altogether, it took me about 6 hours to do the job. I’m super pleased with the aesthetic and robustness of the U-Pol. This completes round one of customizations. Thanks for reading.

Looks good man! Did you have to use a special sprayer to spray on the lining?

The Kit includes the sprayer pictured within the photograph. Pour the hardener into the liner bottle. It's about a 3:1 mix ratio, shake for three minutes, and thread the sprayer directly onto the bottle. Very simple process with very little cleanup.

Can you elaborate how one can do the FORSCAN? Did you do it yourself? Did a shop do it for you? I am in Southern Cal too.

Thanks.
