Does anyone have a parts list for a 156" WB, 2011 F250 6.7L crew with a short box? I think the parts link above is for the 36 gallon tank.

My 2000 XLT has them, but it does have the offroad package.

I had the FX4 package on my 2009. I bought a leftover 2012 about a month ago and was planning on putting the skid plates on the truck. That seemed a bit pricey. The whole package is a less than 300.00 add on if ordered. Liked the look of the Rancho shocks. Do you know if the same part number goes to the 2012.
And while we are at it is there any experience regarding warranty problems if aftermarket parts are installed, ie flowmaster? I have the 6.2 gasser which clearly runs better than my 09. The new truck is just missing some items that I really liked on the 09. The console was much better, the current truck flips up to make a third seat complete with seat belt. Too family oriented for me plus console space is poor.
I am new to the forum but have had had F250 trucks since 1979. Actually the 79 was an F350. Lot of good input here. Glad I found you guys.

As far as I know, the skid plates are the same for the 2011-2013 Super Duty trucks. You can use the Part#'s provided by jaypsullivan to determine the current pricing.

You can substitute your own nuts and bolts for the transfer case, they
are nothing special.
As for upgrades and the effect on the warranty, most dealerships will allow for simple changes like tires, wheels, cat-back exhaust, etc. It's the upgrades to the PCM (IE: Tuners), significant lift kits and big tires, and changes to engine internals and emissions that you can void your warranty.

Skid Plates

That is great!
Now the question become where to find 200.00 for that gas tank skid plate.
Damn! Some serious cash for a piece of steel plate.
I convinced myself that this truck was such a deal that it would be worth putting in the extras that I wanted later. Not really sure that was a good plan.
I had the FX4 package, the back up camera, which at first I thought was for sissies but which I learned to love, the true console instead of the extra seating which I know realize that I prefer and believe it or not, the on the fly 4wd. Getting lazy I guess. My instincts tell me that my traditional 4wd shifting will be more reliable. On the plus side, that 6.2 is much better.
In terms of changes I was thinking that a cold air return and a better exhaust would be nice if the warranty remained solid.
I guess headers and duals are out.
I really appreciate your help.

Why should every 4x4 have them? Not everybody needs/wants them so it is extra cost that is not necessary.

Skid Plate

Good point. A better one is why so much of an upcharge. You know Ford isn't planning on losing money on the package so why increase pricing if you want to add later.

When FMC is manufacturing vehicles, the parts are utilized immediately during the production process. These parts are "packaged" in reusable containers that generally contain multiple parts. For example, if FMC is going to manufacture 10,000 Super Duty trucks, they may have 5,000 skid plates that are designated by either FMC or customer orders to be installed. There is generally no excessive parts once the production process is complete. In many instances, FMC may have utilized the parts in the production process before the accounts payable department even generates a check to the manufacturer.

However, when the dealership inventories parts, the parts may sit on the shelf for months or even years before they are sold to the customer. This is what is called "the carrying cost of inventory." To avoid this direct carrying cost, most dealerships do not have the part in inventory but will order the part from the warehouse to be delivered to the dealership within a few days. However, the carrying cost is still there (at the warehouse) but is now an indirect carrying cost to the dealership. The parts are "packaged" as "individual" parts, which is an added expense. The dealership and warehouse are another link in the chain so the price increases for their profitability. The more links there are in the chain, the higher the price is to the end user.

what a rip off to buy them afterwards, when I ordered my truck I think the skidplate option was around $150 so I added it even though I probably will never need them.

You were spot on with the part numbers, I purchased all from autonation and just a slight increase in the prices. I did have to walk the parts guy through what I wanted and he even verified what I need against my VIN and he included all the nuts and bolts. Install was exactly as mentioned in the posts and went relatively easy. This is the diagram from autonation https://parts.autonationfordwhitebea...iagram=ME11759

They use metric cap nuts and bolts. Just go and get SAE nuts and bolts from a hardware store, if not i believe they are 12x1.5 metric

oem skid plate installation

Just did the same thing. I used 7/16 1 3/4 inch, Grade 8 bolts, nuts, lock washers and flat washers. Only a few bucks at Lowes. Bolts fit the holes perfectly.
