Is it possible to add pro power to a xlt that only has the 400 watt inverter. And how pricey will it be compared to getting it from the factory. I couldn’t find a truck that had that with all the other options I wanted and it would really come in handy for me on the job site

Way cheaper to throw a battery pack or generator in the truck.
Besides, the ICE version of ProPower isn't the most elegant design for getting alternating current from a vehicle.

Ya I know the problem is that it takes up room in my bed when I already have a full load of shit and some times I do not no if I need it or not so the piece of mind knowing that I can use my truck elevates a lot.

I have the pro power 2k, there is a lot to add, namely a 2nd alternator. I have (2) two factory mounted alternators. That is just to start.

Perhaps better idea: I would find a bigger better alternator with HD regulator and HD rectifier, then replace the factory unit with a 'really good one' then - get a 3000watt inverter, also probably get the 850cca battery, good thick wires and have a specialist install all of it.

Oh I see so two alternators is another thing probably going to need a different accessory belt aswell but ok fair I’ll look into this thanks

You're better off finding the largest output alternator you can find and sizing the pulley appropriately to make enough amperage at idle, while adding a 12v 2kW inverter. The ford inverter on the non-hybrid trucks is pure hot garbage. Get an inverter with remote control capability (wired or wireless) and mount it behind the rear seat. Be sure to parallel run hot and ground as the cab's grounding is insufficient for that level of current.
