Default 2012 F-150 Super Crew FX4 Long Bed

3.5L V6 213 cid
365 HP @ 5,000
420 TQ @2,500


2012 Ford F150 FX4.....found one with the "long bed"......the long bed around here is VERY hard to find


The truck only has 17,500 miles on it


Max Tow
Power folding mirrors
Heated/Cooled leather
Power sunroof
Power rear slider w/ defroster
Navigation
Touchscreen
ARE cap (dual LED strip bars, fully carpeted)
3.73s



275/65R20 Goodyear Duratracs


The backup camera on the touchscreen is great, with the back up sensors make this a safe and functional rig

Funny thing is, that HIDs and Telescope Mirrors were not available in 2012........the build date on the door jam is 05/2012


It also has a 2013 grill and front end......title and all Ford documents say 2012


Also, in addition to the front leveling kit (not sure if its 1.5" or 2"), the truck also came with a 3-1/8" tall rear block

HarshTerrain receiver mount kit







I don't think they are in business anymore, which is a shame...........small company, making awesome prodcuts


"Heavy duty receiver shackle mount made from solid steel. Designed to with stand the exteme demands of recovery and towing operations. These are approximately 3 times stronger than cast parts. Features two 5/8 inch through holes for attaching to the receiver hitches and one 7/8 inch hole for a shackle pin."

Kit Includes:
1 Receiver
1 Bow shackle 4.75 Ton
Specifications:
Material: 1018 cold rolled steel
Finish: Clear zinc
Length: 6.125 inches
Width: 2 inches
Thickness: 2 inch
Weight: 5.14 pounds

I bought one of these YEARS ago and am amazed at the high quality of this unit. I love how heavy duty the mount is, because it is solid 2" square piece.

I have beat the snot out of this mount and shackle with my last truck, a Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins (6" lift on 37s)


A fresh coat of paint and I will install it tomorrow

Wow, some nice add ons. I wish I could figure out how to post pics of mine. Like I mentioned, It's very similar. I don't have towing mirrors, projectors, cap and I have the appearance package.

I do want to level mine with 305's, I'm just waiting for the right time.

I definitely have room for larger tires, but these will do for while


I need to pull the cap off and have the bed done with LineX


The ARE cap is awesome, interior is carpeted for sound deadening and seems to help with insulation


I have two long LED strips and a rear cargo light inside


The truck impressed me this weekend, especially since this is my first half ton truck I have ever owned


I have owned 2500 and 3500 truck since 2001


I made tow trips, with 1300 pounds and 1500 pound in the bed........yes, it sagged but it was no where near the bump stops. The truck was very solid and stable

For $20, I really like these RC brackets...........no drill, bolt-on installation for a 30" LED bar


http://www.roughcountry.com/ford-30i...nts-70526.html


I am NOT a fan of LED bars, at all.......but, when mounted correctly and properly positioned on the vehicle, they are VERY effective


Just wondering why a single row LED bar can only be used?
