2024 F150 Lariat 502A FX4 5.0
Gave my new Lariat a quick hand wash after all the rain and road muck over the last couple of days and put on my new Weathertech mudflaps, my old tonneau cover and shorty antennae from my 2021 F150 and the bed mat.... put my personal items back in (eg my walker Razors for when we have a little fun at the range... :) )...... just waiting on my new personal plates to arrive then do some LineX, window/moonroof tint next....

It drives better than my 2021 Lariat and the turning circle seems quite smaller but I've also noticed it sits higher at the front than the other one....

I can't remember if I had 5 1/2" or 6 1/2" clearance at the front (pretty sure it was 5 1/2) but I've now got 7" and compared to the other one it sure looks higher.... wonder if it's a change or spring sag on the old one....

The front will sink as the springs get accustomed to the engine weight. My nose was significantly higher the first 1-2 months vs now a year later. My Expedition EL was like an inch taller when I had the coils and struts replaced, but it sunk after about 3 months.

Attempting to rotate the tires, I’ve been bashing on the rear with a rubber mallet, got under and kicked with all my might and the rear driver won’t let go. Next step is drive on it with loose lugs and slam on the brakes lol

When you do get them off. Clean up the hub with a Scotch Brite pad, and apply a light coat of silicon grease to the hub and the bore on the wheel. It won't happen again. Be happy you're not stuck beside the road somewhere with that! πŸ˜ƒ

And of course, the BMS is reset ;)

Now a bit more engine-off reserve capacity for the Dometic Console Refrigerator I installed a few days ago.

:) . (y)

I've been happy with Walmart Everstart batteries for a number of years, like the 4-year no-hassle free replacement warranty (not pro-rated) and the fact that there's a Walmart everywhere if I do happen to have an issue when traveling.
Thanks for posting this. It helped me change out the battery on my β€˜22 with no guesswork involved. Same Walmart H8 battery and larger battery cover that you specified.

Destroyed my GoRhino side boards on a recent trail 🀩 lol they did their job! Now picked these up Raptor takeoffs running boards. Interesting how much lighter they are then the Rhinos

installed bed liner, tailgate protector and some aftermarket bed tie downs. Those bolt holes for the tie downs were driving me crazy.

Tinted the fog lights. Actually removed them from the bumper to do it as I have never used a vinyl tint before and wanted to be able to take my time with it. So, if anyone is curious you can in fact remove the fog lights from under the truck.

In the past, I've given them a few good donkey kicks, rotating the tire roughly 180 degrees in between. So far, that's never let me down.
