Default BoostedFX4 Build Thread

Hey guys! I joined last summer when I was looking for a new truck to replace my '04 Z71. Last fall I listed my Z71 to see if I'd get some good bites with winter approaching and got a pretty fair offer on it so I sold it.

Literally 2 hours after I sold it I was at home working and came across an ad on facebook for my new truck. Drove out to St. Louis on a whim that next afternoon and got home around midnight with my new truck.

Here she is the day after I got her. Still factory tint, and a dealer emblem on the tailgate:

That next weekend I had an appointment to get my windows tinted and my dad mentioned his car club was having a BBQ contest on one of his friends land. Being that I love guns, beer and BBQ, I offered my dad a ride if I could tag along.

A few weeks later I took the day off to go kayaking. I couldn't resit taking a couple photos on the boat ramp.

I found a K&N CAI on eBay used for about half off

Shortly thereafter I was on a local craigslist swap shop and found an ad for factory 20's. I was the first to respond and setup a time with the seller to meet as soon as he got back in town from opening day pheasant hunting. 2 of the tires were toast but two have about 2000 miles on them. I picked up 2 matching Scorpion ATR 275/55/20's later with 2 months of use for $100.

Installed the Bilstein's myself in my dad's friends garage. Went with the 2nd tallest setting for a 1.5" level to leave a small rake.

Beau Allen Rogel had a bunch of Kicker Soundstage upgrades real cheap and when he posted that he was down to his last 10 or so units I made sure I got one.

  • F150Leds.com Cupholder light rings
  • SCT Livewire + Unleashed or 5* Tunes
  • Boot Bars
  • Resonator Delete and Corsa Tip
  • 305/55/20 or 275/60/20 All Terrains

A lot of it is copied over from F150Ecoboost. I joined here first because I was contemplating which to buy but after buying one I spent most of my time over there reading up on the drivetrain. I've been lurking over here a lot lately looking at wheels/tires as that is my next big purchase so I figured I'd post up my truck on here as well.
