New hear but been lurking. I recently received a new 2022 f150 power boost Supercrew 6.5 bed lariat with sport and fx4 package. Ordered June 10th, got it last week.

Absolutely love the truck.

I instantly put a Century cap hi cab on the bed. Ordered yakima rail less roof rack for my yaima box( will receive the roof rack this coming week.)

I'll be swapping the 265/65/18 wheels with 285/70/18s and install a 2inch front spacer this coming week.

Pictures attached of before and after bed cap.

I'll update this thread with more info as it develops. I plan on building out the back for camping/sleeping shenanigans.

Nice looking truck, pretty quick order to deliver timeline too. Keep posting the photos up; I'm curious to see the 2" level and new tires. Which level did you go with?

Just placed the order on the following
2" ReadyLift Level
305/70/17 NItto Recon Grappler
Method mr316 in black.

I went with the new rims because the dealer I'm dealing with is giving me quite a bit of cash to trade in the stock 18's and wheels...almost what I could get on offer-up.

I'm hoping they have availability for installation tomorrow, if not it will be after the holidays. Once it's complete I'll post pics and more info.

So far here are my issues with the truck, all very minor.

1. Wireless Charging - My Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra overheats when it's on the wireless charger and connected to the truck via Android-Auto. If the phone is connected to the truck via Bluetooth with android-auto disabled, no overheating. I've done a little research, I know this can be fixed via software/firmware updates.

2. Truck Noise - The truck makes weird sounds. Shifting, gene kicking in, engine off and on. I've been driving for a few days with no radio on to get used to. LOL lots of getting out and listening to make sure things are ok....

Update. 295/70/18's did not fit on the stock setup. The front rubbed quite a bit on multiple spots. Tomorrow I'm having the dealer install a 2" ready lift level kit. I was going to install the kit myself but after actually looking at performing this work it seems multiple parts of the hybrid system need to be removed, battery, battery mount, wire harness etc. I'd rather not mess with it as of now.

Once the level kit is installed I'll have the wheels installed. Should be done by this Friday, I'll post pictures and more info.

2" Readylift level kit installed. Definitely can tell a difference in the ride only optically, can tell I'm riding higher. I have 295/70/18 Nitto Recon Grappler's being installed right now, will throw some more pictures up once its done.

295/70/18's will not fit without a level kit. You will need to trim some plastic from the front and fiber board from the rear of the wheel well. You might even have some rubbing on other parts. 295/70/18's with a 2" level fit perfectly. You may have SOME rubbing on the plastic front fender and rear fiber board when the suspensions is compressed but not too sure yet.

I'm extremely happy with the look of the tires with the stock wheels. Adding rhino liner to the wheel wells next week.

I'm pretty much done with the outside for now.

Tenfour - Great set up. Today I installed the same Recon's on my 2022 PowerBoost. I went with a KMC Impact 18x9 wheel et18 and the 295/70/18 Recon Grapplers in the P-metric. Man I have a lot of road noise - whine - from about 50mph on up. Are your Recon's super quiet? I have not yet changed my tire size in with ForScan... wondering if that will change anything or did you experience any of these issues?

Thanks! The Recons are a little noisier than the stock tires but not by much. I did a trip about 500 miles on the stock tires and just finished a 700 mile trip last week. The Recons create quite abit more noise but they are all-terrain tires so I expected it. All in all not loud enough for me to notice as an issue.

love the look and stance! I just ordered an A.R.E. Revo cap and bed rug. Adding a 2.5 leveling kit next, but will probably wait on new tires.

Couldn't help but notice your side badges aren't present?

Rear wheel well liners are a must, particularly on white!

I also have a 2022 PB and I’m considering a 2 inch level. You mention a difference in ride. What kind of difference are you experiencing? Does the level kit cause any issues with all the driver assist features like lane keeping, assisted cruise control.
, braking? I really enjoy the stock ride. thanks.

I have not noticed any change in driving functions. The only difference was looking out the front window you can tell you are up 2" if that makes sense.
