  1. F150 2021 + Light Bulbs

    yes there is a reason, read the links I posted. drop in LED’s do not accurately simulate the size and shape of halogen bulb filaments. This leads to poor focus and poor performance for LED’s in halogen housings. The best performing LED like the Morimoto 2 strokes at $200 barely beat stock long...
  2. FordPass - Scriptable Widget V2022.XX (iOS, iPad, MacOS)

    What’s the chances of getting this to work for other Fords? My wife has an edge and we use the FordPass app daily for both my truck and her car.
  3. Rough Country seat covers and weather tech AVM mats

    Yes all seats work as they should.
  4. Easy halogen high beam upgrade: 9011 bulbs

    Just a friendly reminder that a 40% improvement in high beam output is a bulb swap away. The stock high beam bulbs are sylvania 9005LL (aka long life aka low performance). Fortunately an upgrade is simple, easy, and cheap: buy a set of 9011 bulbs (I chose the Phillips standard $30 each on...
  5. USA made shorty antenna company.

    Much much better than the stock CB whip! Reception is generally pretty good where I live but I haven’t noticed a different yet either.
  6. Rough Country seat covers and weather tech AVM mats

    Ive got a 2021 F150 XL STX with the 40/20/40 bench and vinyl floor. But, I’ve got two kids and a dog, so I still want to cover my seats and collect the mess. The RC seat covers are listed as fitting the buckets only but they fit the outside buckets perfectly. Pass on, drivers not installed...
  7. USA made shorty antenna company.

    Ordered! (y) One of my main gripes with this truck is the huge whip antenna.
  8. How-To: fix your Headlight and fog light aim!

    I picked up my 2021 STX Tuesday night and like many of you I noticed immediately that the forward lighting isn’t great. IIHS rated the halogen headlights as Poor due to a lack of distance projection both down the road and to the sides. Most people immediately think “These lights suck! Time to...
  9. Fog lights aimed like crap

    Please, whatever you do to your trucks, aim your fog lights. I did this on my lunch break, only took about 30 minutes. As delivered,vs drivers side adjusted. The fogs on my STX are 24” off the ground at center. At 15 feet the pattern was on the floor. Generally fogs should be aimed to be...
  10. Fog lights aimed like crap

    So some test photos on my drive home, taken from my road. Fogs only: lows only: fogs and lows: My take is both the headlights and the fog lights are aimed far too low from the factory, similar to my Tacoma. I’m hoping to do some aiming and measuring at lunch today. If my experience with the...
  11. Fog lights aimed like crap

    Adding to the low fog pile, my halogen fogs barely shine past the bumper. Plan on making the adjustment in a couple days using the shop bag at work.
  12. CARBONIZED GRAY F-150 (2021+) Club

    It’s here it’s here! Finished the paperwork today, picking it up on Tuesday when I finish the sale of my Tacoma and give the dealer my down payment.
  13. "Old to New"- What did you drive before purchasing

    I’ve been in Fairbanks Alaska for 10 years and every vehicle I’ve owned had the coolant changed and the heaters added to deal with the winters. I plug in at -10F generally just to make starting easier and warming up faster. I did forget to plug in my 2013 mustang when it was -62F but it still...
  14. "Old to New"- What did you drive before purchasing

    0w-30, change the coolant/water mix to 60/40. Add block (if not factory equipment) oil pan, and sometimes trans pan heater and a heated battery blanket that all run to a plug-in on the front of the truck.
  15. Light bar triggered with high beams

    Do you want your bar to have a second switch in the cabin as well, or do you just want it to come on automatically with the high beams? For the latter, you’ll need a relay harness to pull power from the battery. On my Tacoma I used a posi-tap connector on the drivers side high beam positive and...
  16. How are the halogen headlights?

    I pick up my XL next week and plan to do some testing on my halogen headlights. Don’t use drop in LED’s, if you care about seeing what’s on the road and not blinding other drivers. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/why-leds-should-not-be-run-in-halogen-reflectors.454371/ Based on my...
  17. F150 2021 + Light Bulbs

    Please don’t switch your headlights, high beams, and fog lights to LED bulbs if you have a halogen truck. High beams are an easy upgrade from 9005 bulbs to 9011 HIR bulbs. 9011 bulbs have roughly 2x the output of 9005 and are basically the same wattage/heat output Lows are h11 bulbs. The...
  18. "Old to New"- What did you drive before purchasing

    I have a 2017 Tacoma SR V6 4x4 DCSB that I’m selling/trading in. I have a buyer lined up, but got a good trade in figured out just in case it falls through. I just need more room for the kids in back. My wife will appreciate the more comfortable front passenger seat, and I’m excited for a...
  19. 🙋🏻‍♂️ Say Hello and Introduce Yourself! ?

    Hello from Alaska! I put down a deposit on an unclaimed incoming 2021 crew cab XL STX 2.7l 4x4 on Friday, looking forward to having a truck bigger than my 2017 DCSB Tacoma.
  20. Off-road Lighting Mounts

    If I’m seeing this correctly, your mounts are a couple pieces of bar stock drilled out, and the bolts from the light bar brackets run through the thicker parts of the grill? How stable is the mounting; do you get any shake or bounce from the lights when going down the road?
