    Thinking about supercharging mine. Who supercharged theirs and drives in the snow? Is there any traction at all when rolling from a stop?

    It takes awhile for the foot to get use to all the power, I've been through two and half winters absolutely no problems.

    I guess it depends on what you do and how you drive. I have a 2013 with RPG rear springs, and RPG Fox 3.0 coil overs in front. Just went out with a bunch of guys to play in the river beds near Phoenix. There were a few places where the sand was deep and I could have used more power but for 99% of the day Stock was plenty. I don't go to the dunes but if I did I could see needing more power.

    That said, I've been thinking the same thing, put more money in my 2013 or get a 2017. Maybe wait to see if the rumored V8 for 2018 happens?

    You'd be crazy to get a 2017.
    Historically, Ford never gets it right the first year. Wait for the 2018.
    I'm keeping my 2011 as a modified truck and picking up an 18 as a work truck.

    Nice looking supercharger.

    Is it just a Whipple? Or a Shelby package?

    Absolutely supercharge it. The 2017s will perform fantastic but I would cry every time I heard that thing crank up. Trucks gotta eat meat, and trust me the ecoboost is a vegan.
