    Wild eh? I figured they'd just do the typical side exhaust - punch a 3" tube through the bedside, metal trim ring, etc. This square style is totally unconventional but I like that about it.

    That's a great data point, thanks. A separate rear caliper system would also provide some redundancy. Good insurance when you're way out in nowhere.

    Cool, just ordered the Alcon 6 pot front kit. Thanks for the tip.

    Yea they did a great job with it. I needed it to be quick detach since I'll only use it when camping with my GF. Otherwise I'll remove the rack&RTT and keep it in the garage. I built a system using a Harbor Freight hoist to lift and store the setup in my garage. New Rack:

    That was the suspicion in the other thread. A lot of electronics in these trucks! Hopefully turning off the TC would allow the feature to work correctly. I don't know how to test this beyond just building the hardware and then seeing what the software thinks...

    I think at this point, you're probably right. A completely independent system that doesn't F with any of the factory stuff. The hoon handle is already installed, just need a little master cylinder and secondary calipers.

    Side note, I'm also trying to design a turning brake for this truck. In another thread, someone was experimenting with activating the rear electric parking brakes independently, which should reproduce the "trail turn" feature. I'm still in the R&D phase of that project, but chime in if you...

    I have the E parking brake, so maybe only fronts for me too. Did you do any objective before/after tests, or just feels better, or?

    That's my limited observation - lots of "brake upgrades" don't have much data on actual performance&reliability gains. I'm not against it, but it's gotta do more than just look cool.

    Yes. Just want to get this thing on the (off) road without further delays and complications. Then we'll see how the stock brakes handle the bigger tires. What are people doing for brake upgrades these days? I'm not up to speed on that stuff

    Oh cool, how's your build going? The only way to fit 40's on this chassis is to move the lower portion of the firewall back, and/or the headlights forward. He kinda splits the difference and does both. So yea, that piece you see is a firewall reduction panel. Then the headlights are moved...

    What, you don't like how the duct tape matches the Steel-It? :D Appreciate the link, I'll have to pick one of those up. Truck is "done" but doesn't run right. Tracked it down to the throttle body that must been fried with all the welding. I had a new one mailed out to them so hopefully...

    Hey thanks, the truck is slowly coming along. Should be cool when it's done - feel like I've been saying that for a while now! That makes sense about your race truck. The first step in swapping a driveshaft on THIS truck will involve a trip to the cooler for a fresh beer!

    Turning / Cutting brake install

    Same here. How have you implemented this in your truck? A hoon handle would be fun, but main functionality we're trying to accomplish is 'trail turn'. So locking a left or right parking brake would work. I'd imagine that with the correct supply voltage, and a diode on the OEM parking brake...

    Turning / Cutting brake install

    This truck has the electronic parking brake too. It would be nice to use that, just seemed less intuitive. For example, can the E-brake be modulated? Or is it just lock / off?

    Turning / Cutting brake install

    After seeing the Trail Turn feature in action on the Bronco, we're trying hard to duplicate it on my 2018 F150. Would really help the turning radius, especially with aftermarket suspension and bigger tires. We've got the mechanical part installed, but need to work out the plumbing so it will...

    updates.. starting to look more like a truck..

    Indeed. I'm hoping we're in the 'light at the end of the tunnel' phase.

    Initially he was confident he'd make the date but as we got closer, it was clear he wouldn't. He was up front about that, but everything (flight, hotel, time off work, etc) was already booked so I went anyways. Hadn't laid eyes on the thing in like 18 months, so it was good to see it in person.

    There have been many 'completion dates', all of which are in the past. Most recent one was last Monday where I actually went to Vegas to pick it up, but it wasn't done. He told me he needed another 1.5-2 weeks.

    Coming down to the wire here. Got bumpers drawn and hopefully sent off to the laser cutting joint soon. Still waiting on the bodywork, but I believe that's the last variable.

    Naw man. It's all good, everyone's got their thing. I can appreciate the restomod game walking around SEMA, but don't want to drive one 1000 miles over a long weekend. With the F150 I get a quiet sealed cab, adaptive cruise, climate control, cooled seats, heated wheel, all the AV crap, etc...
