On order ‘22 RCSB.
Finally getting around to posting details about my truck.
I have owned 3 Lightnings, an ‘03 F150 Harley truck and a 2014 F150 Roush charged Screw among 20 other vehicles….but this is the first time I have ever ordered a new vehicle. Since ford doesn’t build a street truck anymore (when i ordered mine), I figured i would build my own.

Ordered 2/24/2022
Build weak 7/18
built 7/22
Vin: 1FTMF1E5XNKE46131
Delivered 10/19
paint code HX Antimatter Blue
Roush Blower kit. $13k installed by the dealer i ordered the truck from. i could have done it myself but wanted to get the warranty.



Belltech 25027. these are adjustable. i ended going with the 3” drop.

Maxtrac flip kit 303240. this was for the previous gen trucks. no issues with install except for cutting a front leaf spring bolt. i didn’t want to drop the tank. get a 5” cut off wheel. a worn 4” isn’t big enough and the bolt will eat sawzall blades.

Billstein rear shocks. not happy with the stiffness…and they were too short. i cant stress enough how important it is to measure for shocks vice picking a set recommended by a vendor when you have done something other than what they sell to your truck.

Viking D216 shocks. worlds better ride in the rear.

Bwoody rear brace. not installed. requires removal of spare tire. didn’t know that when i bought it.

1” lift shackles
removed Ihc lift shackles. After about 1500 miles these started squeaking. I took them out, greased the crap out of them but it didn’t help. When torqued to spec, the bushing was moving inside the rubber. I loosed them until it stopped squeaking and double nuted the bolt. that allowed the leaf spring to rattle when i hit sharp bumps. so i found some other lift shackles made my Maxtracs. these have a poly bushing and grease fitting. all issues with shackles are gone now.

Leaf spring bolts W709627S439 received (didn’t need because the flip kit came with quality hardware.)

Spring tool $35. Harbor freight.

Suspension total.
Actual ~$1800

alignment @Dealer $465 (had to notch control arms)

Tirebuyer.com. $689 + $200 mount balance 305/40-22 General grabber uhp. great tire


Stage 3 motorsports
Wheels with tpms
Ford 22x9.5 $1085.

American truck
Wheel well liners $99. Rough country T559568

1/4 wheel spacers for the front. if you didn’t know, the rear is about an inch wider than the front

Catch can not installed

Gator Tonneau cover. made in usa. this is my second one of these (my son has one on his truck.)

black lug nuts

lasfit hi/low/fog bulbs $28 each. i had to adjust the fogs and after installed, i adjusted the headlights as to not blind oncoming drivers.

Mud flap thing. ML3Z99292A23(2)CA

cut out stock muffler welded in (diy) Dynomax Ultra Flo 17223

tunersports.com
Full Bedrug Brq15sbk

extra XL fender emblems $90 eBay
PTM bumpers $992 (local body shop)
PTM handles and emblems $60 in supplies (diy job)
Ceramic tint

husky floor liners.

Raptor wheel. ML3Z-3600-AB $500 on ebay. it had some knicks on the plastic. didn’t matter to me because i was swapping the plastic out for my stock stuff.
DU2Z-14474-BA electrical plugs
posi-taps. wired up paddles. lots of fun.

skid plate stuff. Previous gen bolts right up
engine
FL3Z-5D032-A
FL3Z-5D032-C (small door thing)
W715288-S439 clips for door
W717461-S439 j nuts
no bolts needed

transfer case
FL3Z-7E063-A
W520813-S439 nut
W709390-S439 bolts

CQuartz UK 3.0 ceramic coating after paint correction/polishing. Really easy once you have the prep done. Kinda wish i had coated every other car i have owned before. super easy to wash and dry now.

As you know the XL trucks have manual seats. I did some research and ended up getting a power driver seat out of a 2017 F150 Supercrew truck. I took my seat and the junkyard seat apart and put my 2022 stuff on the 2017 frame. Bolted it in my truck, plugged it in, and everything works like it should. This was a two birds one stone thing because my sons 2017 F150 needed a new drivers butt cushion. so i will be able to put the junkyard foam in his truck now.
I got the seat from Okautoparts in Ridgeland MS. they are 25 minutes from me so no shipping needed. Best $210 i have spent. Truck is way more comfortable to drive. I am 6’2” and 245lbs. the manual seat sat too high and being able to tilt the butt made a huge difference.

still need/want
rear sway bar. BELLTECH - 5561 $421
RCI transmission skid plate?
Leather kit w/heated and AC. ~$2500
VAS front brace.
custom true dual Exhaust with H pipe two resonators 2 mufflers. i might start working on this in my spare time. not many reputable exhaust shops around here…yes, i have talked to a couple and walked away thinking i would not let them touch my truck.

I’m sure i am forgetting something.
4 wheel drive launches are a blast. With traction control off, rear locked, and some pedal work, it hooks and moves out. no track times yet but i plan on getting some times when the weather cools off.

I can get pics of suspension, interior and under hood if anyone wants.

Wow really wicked build. Most complete mod list I've seen on here. I love the coating. (Paint correction + ceramic is how much?) You have spent a lot, wow. I'm impressed. Would love to see a timeslip, can you PM me so I don't miss it if you go? :)

got some stuff for you to add: FRPP Rear diff cover with magnet, I would change the rear gear oil with your 3.73's, Link in my sig for it. I changed mine out at 2000 miles, there was fine black particulate in the pumpkin.. Plus the will rust factory rear cover is thin stamped steel. The FRPP unit weights 12lb and is powder coated iron and will absorb a lot more heat than the factory unit! A must for your build.

Trans cover: https://talonsgarage.com/products/ford-f150-skid-plate-catalytic-converter-shield-2009-2023 - no L brackets, No snap nuts which rattle - bolts to the frame, will never rust, 1/4" 5052 Aluminum, it's like $350 way less than the others and way better.

So the dealer updated the PCM with the Roush blower info? - wow, 3.73's and 22" inch tire, did they tell the PCM about the tires or do you have an aftermarket tune?

People will learn not to mess with a lowered F150 Short cab - lol.

22 F150 Black Pack -22 Expedition Stealth - 03 HD
I also had an 01 Lightning that I went crazy, built the motor, turbo of 650 rwhp etc. Had an 03 HD as well that I sold last year..assuming you were or are an Lrodder member?

Truck looks good. I'd love to do the same but need a Supercrew for my needs.

I think an STX grille, pre axle exhaust exit, stubby antenna, paint to match mirrors and maybe change out the heads and tails would totally finish it off. Nice build!

Thanks for the info and suggestions.
The ceramic coating is about $90. I went to carpro-us.com and got it and a few other things but in general i already had all the stuff to paint correct and polish.

Yes, dealer loaded the roush tune. My speedo matches waze so i assume that they corrected it when i took it in for alignment…now i’m curious lol…
the dealer i used is aftermarket parts friendly and they “build” their own performance vehicles, lifted and lowered, so they would have known it needed it.

$90 wow, I will have to look at that. (ceramic coating)

yes if you put the size into a tire calc it will tell you a revs per mile number, then the dealer can insert or update it. Not sure with 22' and less sidewall tires it may be very close already, the 3.73 gear is accounted for or it would be way off.

Got engine pics?
