The Baby Hauler (2019 F150 XLT Super Crew FX4 2.7L Ecoboost)

10 posts in this topic

So I plan to do a few things to this truck.

So far, the list will be:

(1) Tint the front two windows and windshield.

(2) Weather tech Mud Flaps

(3) Catch can

(4) Katzkin leather seats

(5) LED headlights and taillights. 

(6) AMP tailgate extender

(7) Console Vault

A part of me wants to do performance mods, but the primary use for this truck is to be a baby hauler and not void the warranty. If I do anything, it might be a drop in high flow air filter and tune at the most. :yes: 

Just for future reference....

I see so many MAF failures from "high flow air filters" that I'd recommend NOT using one.

They do have the dry filters.... Do they still mess up the MAF?

I don't know what a "dry filter" is.   I only know that a higher flowing filter that's the same physical size as stock it gonna have "bigger holes" for the air to pass through.  And I cringe when I see the dirt inside a diesel intake tube down wind of it.

I second that. I'd stick with high quality stock type filters. Wix and OEm Ford parts.

As much as i love the factory running boards, they are not low enough for my mother-in-law. :no: 

She has nearly slipped a handful of times getting in and out of the F150.

For a 75 year old, a broken hip or something would be like a death blow.

So I need to add to the list, some running board spacers or drop brackets. if I can't find them, maybe I can have some custom spacers made.

If I can't do that, I'll probably have to drop some coin on the electric / auto running boards because since they tuck back under the truck cab, they seem to make them a bit lower and further out from the cab in extended position.

This one is made for lifted trucks, so it drops down like 3 extra inches. https://www.amp-research.com/powerstep-xl-running-board/2019/ford/f-150

AS far as your windows go, give Todd Blum at Blum's window tinting a look on FB, he did my Traverse and the price couldn't be beat, also uses quality tint too that's actually made in Tennessee

Measured the step height on both trucks. :yes: 

The Tundra is 10 inches from the ground to the top of the step.

The F150 is 15 inches from the ground to the top of the step.

So it makes sense why my mother-in-law is having trouble getting in/out of the F150 and not the Tundra. 

I doubt I'd find a spacer to get that step down that low and plus it probably would look odd.

So the electric running board looks like the best choice since it drops lower and then tucks under the truck.
