Having the truck for only 2 days, I didn't drive it much, mostly sat in driveway to figure out all the systems and applications.  This sucker is impressive.  I did run down the road for lunch today, with the new 10 speed and the 3.5 EcoBoost, never saw this thing shift out of 10th going 75-80 on the highty.    BTW, it will get up and go. 

Ordered WeatherTechs for it yesterday, looking to get a Line-X sprayed in and then getting a Peragon tonneau cover.

I will say that I do have some dealer induced swirls on the piano black parts of the doors.   Is there a fix for that?   

Will try to get a pic i the sun tomorrow.  The truck does need a proper detail.   Clay, polish and I would like to put Optimum coating on it.


If you haven't already, I 'd suggest taking a hard look at the backflip revolver.  I put one on my new truck, and it is the best tonneau I have ever had.  Love it.    Got a great price through Real Truck rep on F150online.
Got the raptor running lights installed today.   Really pleased with them.

How's the search for a tonneau cover?  I need one myself and I just don't really like everything about any of them.  That paragon looks nice but I don't like the way it slides down and stores taking up bed space.  My Access rolled up but stored above the bed leaving to fill area of the bed useable when open.  I don't like the ones that flip and store vertically, blocking the entire rear window.  I never had any issues with my Access cover but it never looked as nice as some of the other options.

After watching one of the videos, I may be sold.  An Arctic white one would look pretty sick on my truck.  I like that I can simply remove the top and stow it in the cab if need be.  $1000 is a tough pill to swallow though.

I hear ya, but still cheaper than a retrax and you can remove in 30 seconds or less.

I am in the waiting list for when the white option becomes available.  Early 2018.  I just need it before mid February for our Tennessee trip.

Nice Mike

I will wait for your review.  You will probably beat me too it. 

I am going to get Car Audio done in 2 weeks.

I saw you posted on their Facebook page and made the purchase.  Looking forward to your thoughts and pics.

It is dirty, I know, been hauling 3 string bales for the horse. 

I ran with it open to get the hay out.   I want to spray it down with HD.

So the bed cover is nice.  The directions for the no drill are a tad different but the videos are the best way to do the install.  We messed up on a few things and had to redo one section but overall I am very pleased with it.  The ramps on mine need to be bent in some.  Easier to take the top out if they were bent in a tad.   

Other than that, it is very stiff to open...that will get easier with time.   

I think it is worth it and I am pleased with it thus far.

So yours is not the no-drill?  Do you think the no-drill is worth it?
