Mileage, specs and regrets?

I’d like to hear from other forum members how many miles they have on their truck and what specs, options, package your running. Is there anything you’d go back and change if you could do it over again?

2018 Platinum with almost every option, 5700 miles on it and the only thing I would have added are the tow mirrors. Other than that really happy with the truck so far!

Bought on June 23, haven't done much except forscan and running around town. 1,400 miles so far. I saw yesterday I was filling up just twice a month!

Happy with all the toys, Platinum but no sunroof. FX4.

Thumba up for the no sun roof. I know it’s personally preference but I’m with you.

2018 Platinum 4x4, 3.55, and 6.5 box purchased in May. Very happy with the truck as the mileage and comfort is good. The discounts on the 2018’s made the payment a little easier to swallow. I average around 23.5-24 mpg.

I just added the titan 48 gallon tank. Next looking to add Forscan and need to do my homework on it before I make the leap. I am sure the board will be very helpful.

FORScan mod for recognizing the 48-gallon Titan tank...

Change Fuel Tank Size
IPC 720-03-01
Original Value: 6003 D900 0067
Changed Value: xxx7 19xx xxxx

Notes:
3D9 = 26 gallon
719 = 48 gallon
x's are unchanged values

----------------------------

If I did my truck over again I would have had LINE-X do my spray in bed liner instead of the dealership. I also would have taken off the P rated tires right away and replaced with LT rated tires, instead of waiting for the inevitable flat tire off roading in Ontario with P rated tires. Sort of a joke to label the truck FX4 Off Road with skid plates and have P rated tires--FX4 should come standard with LT rated tires.

2018 Ford F-150 King Ranch FX4 3.0L Power Stroke 4x4, Long Bed & Trailer Tow Mirrors | Spray-in & Wheel Well Liners & BAKFlip CS/F1 & BAKFlip BakBox 2
ForScan Mods: DPF Full %, Bambi Mode, Show Temps Above Gauges, Operator Commanded Regen (OCR), more to do...

Traded In* ---> 2010 Ford F-150 King Ranch 5.4L Triton, LINE-X & BAKFlip CS/F1

I’m not a fan of Goodyear tires myself. Much prefer the Michelin’s too.

Yep we get the Michelins for ride and fuel economy, our spare however is a wrangler Goodyear, lol.

The oniy thing that bugs me a little is the sensitivity on the ford perimeter alarm sets itself off all the time, do not know how to change that.
