New to me.....I was apprehensive about getting the 1st year for the Powerboost but took the gamble. It has 23k miles and I purchased a Ford Premium Care bumper to bumper Warranty from Flood Ford (10 year/85000).

2021 Ford F150 Limited
Carbonized Grey Metallic
3.5L Powerboost
Max recline seats
Ford spray in bed liner
Ford bed cover
3:73 Electronic lock rear diff.

This was previously owned by the GM at Bill Colwell Ford in Hudson Iowa. The dealership has it leveled and added Nitto Ridge Grappler tires when new, the receipt was in the glovebox along with the window sticker.

I'm learning more about this truck every day. But any tips and hidden features anyone has to share, please feel free to let know.

I have the exact same truck in white. I have had no issues with mine at all and actually think it's the best year model to have considering they started removing things due to chip shortages.

That's definitely good to hear man. I've only had it for 3 or 4 days. So I'm just getting used to it. Yeah I'm definitely glad in that sense, getting the 2021 all the features are still there. I looked around for a little while to make sure I got most of the options I wanted, Max recline seats, Factory spray in bed liner, 373 rear end. I was looking for an antimatter blue originally but came across this carbonized gray, thought it looked pretty good and it was already leveled with some decent tires on it.
Definitely pretty excited I've been without a truck for over 3 years now so I'm glad to get back in one, it doesn't drive as nice as my Shelby GT350R LOL but pretty close.

I've had mine since Nov of 2021 and am still in love with it. For it being the first year model they definitely did a great job.

Not sure if you've looked into making any changes with Forscan yet but I would definitely recommend doing the Glare Free lighting mod. Such a cool feature that they should unlock for us in the US.

Still enjoying this new powerplant. Checked my fuses, yes they weren't seated all the way. Rear diff fluid was low, filled it to just below fill plug. I have the Mega ohm Motorsports fuel door release fix coming, not sure about the speaker bypass harness 🤷🏽‍♂️.

If you have the max tow package you may keep an ear out for rear passenger side axle bolt shear. Both my axles were replaced after my sheared. No other issues at 24000 mi on our 21 PB lariat.

Noticing the blue and white accents on the engine cover. I like it- did you add those yourself? (I am assuming so since the white on the "Boost" portion is missing on one of the pics).

No Max tow on the Limiteds, I took the rear wheels off to inspect just in case. Haha.
What is the main cause for the bolts breaking though, was it over torquing the bolts at factory or was it the bolt material itself?

Yes, I used Sharpie oil paint pens to finish the lettering. Red didn't do so good, so I went with Blue and White. I've used them on other engine items in the past and held up with the heat pretty well. 👍🏼

Nobody knows for sure. Tons of conjecture.
Fortunately it does appear to be fenced in to a build date time span. Although there can be outliers for things like that.

How is the ride with the 22" wheels and the leveling kit? I find my stock suspension punishing on any kind of road. I still have the stock tires also with 23K miles.
