2021 Leadfoot f150 crew cab 4x4 3.5EB
Just bought a 2021 lead foot XLT 302A 3.5EB a few weeks ago, the build is in process, will post photos of each as they are completed as well as what is coming.

mods so far:
1-tinting the front windows to match the rear.
2-tinting headlights and taillights.
3-Gator soft tonneau cover.
4-husky all weather floor liners.
5- front and rear emblem overlays.

Next week I am having coil overs and wheels and tires installed to complete the build for now until I get the bug to install more things.
I’ll be goin with the new Eibach 2.0 stage 2 coil over kit with the rear shocks as well.
Wheel and tire combo is gonna be 18x9 icon compressions with a +6 offset and 305/65r18 BFG KO2.
Will post pics of those once installed.

Here is the truck complete with everything, there is no rubbing or scrubbing with the tire size and offset, the tire measures out to be 33.6 inches.
The Eibach coilovers ride great so far and I will see how it settles over the next few days.
Eibach stated that the coilovers would be set at a kit 2.5” of lift out of the box, it looks like it lifted it almost 3 inches so I suspect I just needs to settle.
When you account for the added height with the taller tire as well total height gained in the front is nearly 4 inches, I’m assuming it will go down 0.2-0.3 of an inch, will update next week on that.
I will also test MPG this week and see how much I lost with this set up.

How would you compare the ride quality to the stock ride?

Did the tint on the tail lights affect the blind spot monitoring?

Looks great! My 2.5" level also raised the truck about 3" and brought the truck with in 5/8" of level between front and rear. Perfect IMO.

Truck looks great, where did you come across the head light and tail light tint.

Ride quality is great, a little stiffer but barley noticeable much less body roll and super smooth on the highway.
I had bilstein 5100s on my 2018 F150 5.0 which were good but this setup is much better then those and then stock.


Did the tint on the tail lights affect the blind spot monitoring?
The tail light tint does not effect the BSM, I thought it might but I applied it anyway knowing I can remove it if it did, the tail light tint comes in 3 pieces per tail light with one that specifically covers only the BSM sensor.



Truck looks great, where did you come across the head light and tail light tint.
I got them both from Lamin-X.
I got the “Gunsmoke” for the tail lights and the “tint” for the headlights, I should’ve gone with “gunsmoke” for the headlights also but the picture of the “tint” looked darker then it came out in practice, still looks great tho and looks super sharp driving down the road.

headlights- https://lamin-x.com/ford-f-150-2021-headlight-covers.html

taillights- https://www.google.com/amp/s/lamin-x.com/amp/ford-f-150-2021-tail-light-covers.html

Thanks for the response on the Eibachs. Been waiting to hear about these in a current model application. Your truck looks great!

Thanks, I did forget to mention that for some reason EIBACH states on their website that only crew cabs with 3.5 ECOBOOST should use these as of this moment (which is what I have), when I asked why it doesn’t have the 2.7 or the 5.0 the rep said it’s still not fully ready for those applications yet.
He assured me that there would be no issues on my truck which is why I bought them directly from EIBACH.
So although I am sure it will bolt on to all 2021 F150s
I think sticking with what they recommend is best, but everyone is free to do as they choose with their trucks.

Dumb but obvious question, does the tint reduce the effectiveness of the headlights? Particularly the LED's? I love the look of this.

no issues at all, halogens get affected by tint but LED lights are way more powerful and only it you go all black you might see a small difference.
You can install the tint with confidence.
