2021 F150 Platinum 6.5' Powerboost
I took delivery of my 2021 PowerBoost with the 6.5 ft bed two weeks ago. Major electrical problems from within the first 30 minutes, total loss of power steering, power braking, all HVAC failure, etc, etc. Two weeks later they have replaced the DCDC Converter and one of the major wiring harnesses and all is good. Running perfectly, no issues. Bozeman Ford was very responsive, though I haven't pressed them on the rust issue.

Took some very fast photos last night. Will take more in the coming days.

Mods:
Mods remaining:
  • GFC Camper and RTT (Deposit paid... they released their v2 recently, which is getting mixed reviews... so now I'm not sure)
  • Bed rug (ordered, arrives in a couple days)
  • Trigger 6 Shooter (though people do seem to have issues)
  • New shorty antenna (will add later today probably)
  • ADD now has a new front bumper they claim won't ruin ACC / lane-centering / etc. and supports a winch... very very tempting!
  • Replace chrome side fender badge with something black.
  • Repair / Remove / Paint rust on underbody. ( ? ? ? )

I’ve also got an Agate Black Powerboost and am waiting for GFC’s V2 camper. Great truck so far. Can’t wait to get the camper though.

Glad to see I'm not the only '21 6.5' bed on the list for the GoFast . . . with their new fulfillment model taking in to account truck model the greater the demand the better. ;)

And if you decide that the V2 isn't the way to go the demand is high enough that selling your spot should be a non-issue.

Did you install a leveling kit? Those wheels and tires look great!

Totally stock on the FX4 Platinum 6.5' -- Zero rubbing.

I've always wheel'd down from stock on my cars (18s instead of the stock 20s in this case) and added sidewall to fill it in. I find the optical illusion makes the tire just feel much larger and a much better fit. Maybe that's just me. Plus, a way better ride!

Nice! That is exactly what I wanted to hear! Hope you don't mind, but I may have to copy you ?

@bigskydu Curious if you ended up getting the Go Fast Camper and what your thoughts are? If you have it, would you mind posting some pics with it? Do you have any road noise/rattles from it? Any affect on MPG? Any comments at all would be appreciated. I've seen plenty of reviews on YouTube, but none on 14th gen F-150's.
