I asked this same question a few months back and just wondering if anyone has installed a HomeLink opener in their XLT? IF so, what had to be done to add it to your truck? I feel this option should be included in the XLT 302 A trim anyways.

I looked in to this with my 2018 but it seemed like a lot of work. Depending on your mirror setup, as far as electronics go, you could go with something like this mirror. I put one in my STX, but it didn't have any electric components in the factory mirror. It was fantastic and worked very well, and looked much better than the HomeLink visor.

Thanks. I am looking at installing the stock one Ford installs in the Lariat that is in the visor.

You will have to purchase the visor with Homelink - They retail just under $500. I would also like to have one but too rich for me.

I am not in a rush for one, so will keep my eye out for one for sale or off a wreck in a scrap yard.

Yeah, I have an app on my phone that I can open mine with. I was tempted to get the visor.

when I had my F250 (2019) I was told if you have the lights in the visor mirror, then all of the wiring is there for the homelink visor. All you need is the visor and plug and play. Assuming it is the same for the F150.
