2022 F150 XL
Just got notice that my 2022 XL in carbonized grey is in production. I have been accumulating a list of addons/upgrades to the truck so I'd like some input from you all who know a lot more about this stuff than I do. If there is anything else you think I should look into, please let me know.

LED headlights. Leaning toward AlphaRex Luxx.
Katzkin leather
Dash cam
Wheels
Husky rear wheel well liners

Now, a few questions.
1. what is the best dashcam for the money for the front/back?
2. Is katzkin good quality leather/vinyl? How about with the heated/cooled seats added on?
3. Wheels. My #1 priority is ride quality and aesthetics second. My short googling tells me that 17" is the best for ride quality. Can I get the tires off of my stock XL rims, put them on new rims and sell the stock ones? Any reasonably priced, quality brand wheels you would suggest I look into? I was thinking all black. Any reason to believe that different non stock wheels will negatively affect ride quality, if the size is the same?

Thanks all, can't wait to get my truck.

You'll love it, Below is my STX XL 2021. I added Katzkin, best interior mod!
Also added Husky wheel liners, with points, got the OEM rubber bed mat.
Leveled with a Stage 3 leveling kit, and 20x9 Fuel wheels with 295/60/20

Id do 18's, and if you want leveled, maybe do a 285/70/18 on an 18x9
Amp Research power steps makes it nice for the Mrs.
I have new Alpharex Luxx headlights, will try to put them in this weekend.

My neighbor just had his 2015 katzkined. I was extremely impressed. Looks like something right out of the factory. Came out and did it in his driveway. I was admiring how nice the vehicle was the installer showed up in. Beautiful branding and a extremely respectable mobile workshop custom built into the back.

I have Nexar Beam dash cam - front only, but you can get a rear dash cam. Modestly priced and reliable. The only issue I have with it is I cannot use wireless Apple CarPlay and the dash cam at the same time because the dash cam uses the wireless modem to connect to the phone. I use Sync for navigation and everything, anyway, so it isn't too much of an issue. I have done the following modifications to my truck: 20% window tint on front side windows to match factory rear tint, 5% strip on top of windshield, Ranch Hand front brush guard, LED lighting low/high/fogs and added a 39" lightbar, 2" leveling kit, Air Lift airbags on the rear, Truxedo TruxPort tonneau cover, rear under seat locking storage, LED reverse lights, LED cargo lights, and LED license plate lights. I plan to replace the tires with larger tires, something in between what's stock and 33x12.5. I really like the stock rims, believe it or not, but I want a bit more of an aggressive look. The first picture is a few days after I brought it home followed by some with the mods.

Best Cam is the Black Vue. They have different models They come with 2 cams. I recommend getting the LTE unit and definitely get the battery with it. I had mine hooked up to the vehicle battery and it drained it over time. It works great and you can access the cameras anytime through the App I got mine from Amazon and had it Proffesional installed.
BlackVue DR900X-2CH with 32GB microSD Card | 4K UHD Cloud Dashcam | Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, Parking Mode Voltage Monitor | LTE via Optional CM100 LTE Module
