2018 Platinum in Hampton Roads

Hey everyone and good day. I had a 2015 f150 lariat traded it for a 2018 Durango SRT and then missed my truck so I traded for an incredible deal on a 2018 White Tri Coat Platinum with the baby stroke. The platinum trim level interior is so nice. Loving the truck so far almost have 1000 miles on it and knock on wood no problems what so ever so far. I have tinted my windows 20% all the way around put the Rev flush tri fold cover on it spray in bed liner and next Thursday am starting my custom SD Sport Appearance package on it by blacking out mirror caps window trim and platinum plaque on the back then black and white American flag on the grill and color matched door handles. Next Monday my Tuner from calibrated power will be here and I will report back to everyone what I think of that shortly after I install it. Glad we have a forum for the Diesels and look forward to many more miles with way less fill ups for way less money than my Durango. Oh and no picture posted yet because well, it looks like every other 18 white tri platinum truck haha.

@nkkenme - welcome to the club here, Tommy!

I also have a 2018 FX4 Platinum just in Ingot Silver = Platinum package is a sweet ride, as I love mine.

You didn't say if you dealer-traded for your 2018 Platinum, so just want to make sure you are aware of the infamous FSA 18E02 recall: START HERE: Any owners affected by FSA 18E02 (EGR By-pass valve replacement)

If you bought from a Ford dealer, they should have handled this FSA before they released your vehicle, but I would read thru the above thread to verify.

Hope you enjoy your new ride and welcome aboard/back to Ford!

Yes the EGR issue was handled at the dealership and now I am working on my black out.

Welcome aboard Tommy. Build is nicely coming along as you start to murder it out. Really like what you've done with the grille. Is that a wrap or decal?

It’s a wrap and I absolutely love. Thanks for the compliments. After seeing what everyone is saying I’m thinking of just ordering the miromottos instead of painting mine. I’m sure someone would pick mine up if I lost them for a good price.
