Plastic to leather wheel swap. One of the better upgrades for the STX in terms of driving experience.

Hmmmm, I am okay with my low-end model but I am not a fan of the steering wheel material. I might have to consider this.

I got my leather wrapped one off a guy for like $130 shipped. Took about 15 minutes to put on. Major upgrade. Now matches Katzkin leather.

I was deciding on whether I should wrap my stock plastic wheel but, that would have taken more time than I wanted.

So, I just bought mine online@Stillwell Ford for $184 shipped and that took about an hour to install.

That's amazing. I'm going to have to seriously consider it.

2021 Platinum Powerboost 157” FX4 Max Trailer Tow…just added the KO3’s today!
This is my luxury truck, work truck, fast truck, off road truck and tow rig. Since it is a Powerboost with the 600# front coil springs I went with the Eibach Truck Pro Coilover Kit. I liked that it has the same co8l spring rating as the OEM, has 2.5” of leveling and the leveling can be adjusted while installed on the truck. I also liked that the rears are reservoir shocks as well. Since I do tow and sometimes have very heavy loads, I always add airbags as well. I love that they are so flexible, always allow me to keep the truck level and don't compromise the ride quality.
Although the Star White is pretty good, a white truck is not very exciting. I added the 20x9 Roush wheels with a +18 offset for a bit more poke than factory. As for tires, I wanted aggressive tread, strong carcass & sidewalls, high weight rating, light weight and 34”. I trust the KO2’s as they have always served me well, but it would kill me to buy KO2’s when KO3’s are on the horizon. So I went with the KO3’s and just settled for the 275/65R20’s. I wanted 295’s for a bit more width, but I know that the narrower the tire, the better in snow. Plus where I go off road, the narrow tires are better for sinking through the mud to get to the rock base and move the truck along. Lastly, the Roush wheels and KO3’s only increased my per wheel weight by 21 pounds. The OEM wheels with the Hankook AT2 was 86# while Roush wheels (41#) and KO3’s (65#) combined were only 107#. Normally I would not be so worried, but, I like the power of the Powerboost as well as the gas mileage so I tried to keep weight in mind. Lastly, I like a good ride - which is why I can’t stand the 3/4 & 1 ton trucks. while I need a competent tow rig with stout suspension and tires, I still want to try to keep the ride as close to OEM as possible.
In closing…I met all my goals and got the capability, looks and functions I wanted.

What hit to your MPG have you noticed with that setup? It looks great; I’m debating doing the same to my Powerboost. I drive a lot however and like getting 23.4 MPG..
