    Welcome and congrats! Looks like we have twin trucks! Take your time on the mods and add them as they fit you, and your budget... I've found there are limitless possibilities with these trucks - you can literally do nothing and enjoy it completely, or completely upgrade into a pre-runner / trophy truck.

    Just wear her in and put some good miles on it... get used to the handling and mileage consumption! ;)

    Maybe see you at Raptor Assault one day!

    Ive had mine for a few weeks.

    Replaced with short antenna, no reception loss.
    Spray on truck line and Tonneau soft matte black cover.
    Also added Rhino roll bar and received many compliments on it already. Its a throwback look to 80’s The Fall Guy or Marty McFly’s little toyota. It just completes it and pops!

    I just traded my 14 in on a 18 and kept my pedal commander. You need one for sure!!! I only have 100 miles on her so the pedal commander is set very low for now.

    Does the pedal commander just improve throttle response? Isn't most of lag caused by the turbos spooling up?
    Does it adversely affect mileage or trip off any warranty codes?

    Thanks!

    Improves throttle response, doesn’t reflash Ecu therefore no warranty issues. My truck only has 100 miles on it so I haven’t ripped it yet. Response is extremely noticeable.
