Because I want to retain functionality of the BMS system as a whole.
I wouldn’t recommend it. You’ll want to pull out the housing that holds both the ASS and camera button because there’s a little tab you push in on the bottom to pop it off. There’s kind of a reverse tab on the top that pushes into the button. I would worry one would shear off if you tried to pop it out, here’s a pic with the tab.
AFE Magnum Force Stage 2 intake installed today.
The mail man also brought my DU-HA underseat storage right when I finished up so I threw that in as well.
A little OCD cable management today...ran a USB for CarPlay into the center console. With the little notches it’s great to keep your phone in that little slot next to the shifter, or just tucked away in the actual center console. Really I just did it so I can flaunt that sexy carbon fiber lid on the smaller storage area lol
Installed the Boomba BOV adapter today and love it! Super easy with the stock IC since you can access it through the skid plate. Just need to remove that 90 degree off the bottom of IC. I attached a pic for anyone interested in doing the same.
Sound clip for anyone interested:
Decked drawers went in over the weekend...then out...then back in...mostly. I love the product, but holy shit was install a pain in the ass. I had lots of issues with the cabside brackets not lining up right and issues with stripping hardware. In the end it’s installed, but I sheared one of the factory tie down bolts and needed to use a good bit of my own hardware.
I reached out to customer service and apparently my complaint was the straw that broke the camels back. Decked knows the brackets for short bed F150s are a very functional, but an install nightmare. By far the best customer service response I ever could’ve imagined. They are currently redesigning the mounting brackets for short bed F150s and when complete, they will be sending an engineer to Tampa to take mine out and install a new system with the redesign, essentially using it as a test truck for the new mounting method.
Got the truck back from Line-X this afternoon! I had all 4 flares done, the rear wheel wells, and whatever you call the trim piece between the rear wheels and rear bumper. In their premium product with the UV protection it was $922 including all labor for removal/re-install and taxes. Just a smidge glossier than the stock steps which I plan to keep but I’m sure that’ll even out over time.
Got my new Fifteen52 Traverse wheels on over the weekend and absolutely love the look!
Patiently waiting for Mishimoto’s backordered catch cans to ship.
Cobb TCM tune.
KHC bed supports (confirming they clear decked drawers).
Front runner rack setup (trying to decide how I want to do it).
Separate names with a comma.
