My Insurance checks are on in the mail, for the wreck settlement YAHOO!!!!!
I going to try to document my truck mods and build out here.
Picked up a 2016 F150 FX4 XLT supercab on Saturday, August 25,2019 from Carvana with less than 7,000 miles on the odometer. It has:
standard load tires, 275/65R 18
6500 lb GVWR, 2.7 L V6 ecoboost engine, 325 HP, 375 lb torque,1,660 lb payload, 23 gal fuel tank
On order: 2019 Hawk shell, with furnace, flush mount 2 burner stove, extra roof vent, powered roof vent, yakima tracks only, thermal pack, rear wall A/C, King bed slide out, 270 uzi-awn Batwing awning, silver spur exterior only I will be driving the truck empty 1700 miles at the end of October to take delivery and install. (long story, don't ask)
I have some unique requirements, that being we are full time RVers, so the Hawk will be bolted thru the floor and live permanently on the truck and be towed behind our 40 ft diesel pusher motorhome. It will also be our EDD, (every day driver). I'll also note (PE) next to items if my reason for choosing a particular mod was having had experience with it on my prior setup.
Next week, the following will get installed.
BFG T/A KO2 load range E, 275/65R 18 tires (found a $50 off coupon on a set of four) (PE)
Roadmaster tow brackets & electric wiring for flat towing behind moho. (PE)
Invisibrake Aux braking system for flat towing behind moho (PE)
Air Bags (undecided Air Lift or Firestone), prior rig had custom Alcan spring pack, which I ma eventually do on this truck.
More as it happens
