Really hope to get underneath this thing today, and see the sights.

Did your shackles come with a set of tapered shims, or does the pinion angle stay close enough to stock to not be a problem?
They came with shims, I installed them with the shackles. No vibes.

Truck looks good! On my '07 I kept most of the stock parts, but on the '16 I'm selling everything I take off. I even managed to sell the stock shocks (about 2,000 miles) and stock struts (about 10,000 miles) for $200 total. Covered about half of my suspension upgrades. My neighbors were looking at me like I was insane when I was out in the parking lot changing shocks on a truck the first month or two of ownership. Lol

Lol. There's a pretty good trend on this forum, that's about how long most seem to go before swapping to something else. I chose BOSS (formerly F-150lifts) because Fox were on national backorder at the time and Stage 3 cut me one hell of a deal on them.

Shocks will likely be replaced with something better on the rear. I can't believe how loose and light the rear end feels. Just inherint in the 13th gen from what I read.

Got Weathertech mudder flappers front/rear, and rear wheel well liners installed today. $250, and didn't raise a finger. I'm glad, with my practicing Stupidman leaps off the tailgate yesterday, I couldn't bend over far enough anyway, dammit, it hurts!!!
Also set up appointment to have the grille insert PTMed a week from today, and ordered my nGauge tuner from MPT today.
I screwed up with the pricing. It was $300 for the tunes, NOT including the tuner, the tuner was right about another $400. My reading comprehension must really be going down hill.
My dealer parts guy is trying to get a better price on a Ford Performance "Sport", [there's that damn word again], System with black tips for me. We'll see how that goes, it's nothing more than a Borla SType with the Ford oval instead of Borla logo on the tips.

Sounds like the perfect mods so far! PTM the grille insert will be interesting. I didnt see the NGauge on MPT site, but then again, I was looking at the 15-19 5.0 section and they just had the SCT X4 and Livewire as options. Why did you jump off the tailgate? Even me at 44 is leery of those kind of jumps........lol

Lol. I've done a few that hurt at 23...

John, $700 for the tuner and tunes?! That's insane! Why is the n-gauge the ONLY tuner listed for the 2017 EB? I can get an SCT X4 with 3 tunes for my 5.0 for $450 from them. Seems the EB should be cheaper since there's 2 less cylinders.
