Nice looking truck!
It looks very clean with the leveling kit and 285's. Should have 3.73's since it is an FX4 too.
Congrats!

nice truck, some black headlights/fogs would look damn good on there. what did you pay? 13grand or so?
Intersting. Didn't know that. If it's just cats I am ok with that. Just as long as it doesn't leave me stranded. Mine runs great though.


Btw great looking truck chris. I'd swap leveling kits though. It will ride much better.

i know a few guys that got stranded already, it just happens whenever, kinda sucks they didn't recall it. one minute it ran fine and next it was sputtering and dying and done for...it happened to a buddys truck 2 injectors went bad. hit and a miss with it, i have heard some early 06's have the issue too, however they only have the TSB for 2005's

Man that sucks.

I read the letter. Wonder why I didn't get one in the mail. I guess I could change the injectors. Bet those are cheap. Ha!

TSB #07M08 it was just a service bulletin. if i remember right, only people that bought the truck new got letters, but i could be wrong on that. ford will pay for anything that happens to the motor, but that's it.

Thanks guys! I plan on getting black headlights, and an FX2 grill or if there is a company that makes one like it. I probably wont lift it, get some different tires and thats about it.

I'm not worried about the injectors...if they go I'll just fix it...nothing I can do so I'm not gonna worry about it. Plus, Ford will cover them and anything related to the failure according to the letter.

fx2 headlights are platinum inside

black headlights came in the harley and limited f150's, they also came in the fx4 trucks with luxury packages in 07/08

I know of an FX2 grille someone has close to me. I can email him and ask for a price if you're interested.?

Oh and I wouldn't go buy Hella black headlights, they are infamous for leaks. I have a new set sitting in a box next to me right now actually, lol. I think I would paint the stockers before buying the Hella lights.
Get a programmer if you haven't decided to already, it's like a whole new truck
