Towed the Chump Car down to get some cage work completed on it today. Truck performed flawlessly and got 18.1mpg. Very happy with how it felt.

I just leveled my truck using these adjustable bilstein shocks. Rides good and stable.

I already picked up the Motofab spacers for now. After 50-60k ill swap the shocks out and do it properly at that point with some monotubes.

Any pictures? Which setting did you go with? The 2.5" settings from what im seeing look to make the back lower than the front. Hoping the 1.5" still has some rake to it.

Picked up a bed mat since trying to find someone to squeeze me in for a bed liner has become a daily chore in being told im on a waiting list. Fit and finish are actually quite good and it feels sturdy enough to throw some heavy crap on it.

4600 miles and truck still running flawlessly. Finally figured out how to turn off the brake warnings and collision detection system. What a scary ass noise when that thing goes off.

Welp, first issue just popped up. 12" SYNC 4 screen locked up and went black. Turned the truck off and on, pushed every button possible and it didnt change. Looked up the reset procedure(hold down volume and fast forward on steering wheel) and tried that. Screen reset and is now working again. Hope it was just a fluke but will still have them look at it when the truck goes in for its first oil change.

Hope this isnt a trend. At least its only the screen and not drivetrain issues like my Colorado.

Maybe in need of a software update?

There is a current customer satisfaction recall on the APIM programming. Im wondering if that is the issue or if it has other problems. Once i reset it the issue has seemed to go away completely.

6000 miles to date, 1 oil change and a customer satisfaction "recall" on the headunit. So far been quite good.

Tires are kinda crap though. Goodyears have never been good for me as an OE tire.

Everything good with the sync? Off hand is that sync 3 or 4 on your 2021?

Still has composite oil pan. If its anything like my wife's old Edge Sport the new seal design lasted until we traded it in on our Explorer ST. So it was vastly improved over the original design.

Saw that Livernois Motorsports has a preorder ready for a 2021 F150 2.7 tune. Truck goes from 318whp/395wtq to 368whp/445wtq on 93 octane.

Its a bit more expensive($800) than the other handheld tuners around but Livernois has an excellent reputation with the Ecoboost engines. They are also the first to release a tune for the 2021's.

The numbers above are just the first pass so im sure they will be able to unlock a bit more with some fine tuning. Throw E85 into the mix and it should get real spicy.
