Default New Truck

Looks like my username is no longer valid! I traded in my 2014 XL Supercab 3.5EB on a new 2018 XLT Supercrew 5.0.

Pretty thrilled with the purchase so far. Luckily I found the EXACT same truck I'd often built on Fords website sitting on a lot.

Silver Supercrew XLT, 5.0 V8, FX4, LT275/65R18 AT Tires, Tow Package, Pro Trailer backup assist, 36 Gal tank, XLT Chrome Appearance.

Good news is, I don't have to get V8 envy anymore when my wife starts her truck. She has a 2010 4.6 3V that makes a great noise when starting. (Stock for stock, her 3V might still sounds better on startup.)

First purchase is going to be rubber floor mats, hopefully offset that feeling I have from missing my vinyl XL floors. They were so awesome when getting in the truck with muddy boots. Super easy to clean.

Congratulations on the new truck. I'm sure you will enjoy it. With the 5.0 Coyote engine a Borla Exhaust would be a great upgrade.

I've got some floor mats on the way, decided to try out the SMARTLINER brand that covers the transmission tunnel.

Dealership has me scheduled for Thursday to get my front Tint and Line-X bedliner sprayed in.

I'm currently deciding if i want to go with a hard bed-cover, or go all in with a camper shell. I'm a bit worried about lost bed space due to moving from a larger bed in my 2014 to shorter bed in the new one.

Reading over some threads it looks like some folks are having problems with oil levels. Confirmed this morning that mine is almost exactly on the max fill line on the dipstick.

I did notice that the dipstick is a bit weird feeling pushing back into the engine. Almost like there is resistance compared to other engines I've maintained. Anyone else notice that?
