2012 FX4

Hey everyone
Just wanted to say that Monday November 7 I ordered a 2012 F-150 FX4 crew cab 4x4 with the ECO-Boost engine. Black in color with black leather.
We got the the FX running boards,FX luxury package(which comes with all the good stuff which makes the wife happy!!!) and the "MAN" step. Other than that i don't think there was anything else.
We also had a 2011 same thing but it was at a different dealer and my dealer couldnt not get it. So now we have to wait 4-8 weeks.

I will be adding a under seat storage either buy or build one since i build my own house furniture. Also either a bed cover Not sure what kind i have a roll up one on my ranger, kinda thinking of the Diamond Back one(line-x) for hauling all my landscaping tools around or a Topper but the wife doesn't like the looks of trucks with toppers she says they look like SUVS. Also most forgot i would like to get the bed line-x ASAP....

any other ideas or things to do first guys??

Congrats on the new truck! Sounds like a beauty.

Check with Tim (tseekins) and NASSTY. If I recall correctly, both of them have placed some type of grill over the lower opening in their EB trucks.

I have the $40 grill from Ebay. It is a knock off of the Carriage Works lower grill. I made some brackets and mounted it similar to the Carriage Works setup. Some of the knockoffs don't come with brackets and want you to screw it to the plastic inserts on the bumper.

Congrats on your purchase sir. You're going to love it to death!

You've seen pics of Nasty's lower grill which is the same as mine. Now allow me to introduce you to a bed cover that hails from your neck of the woods.

It's built by Peragon, it's an accordion fold cover that folds nicely n the the bed of the truck and it's made in Northern Minnesota by American workers using American materials. Peragon Retractable Aluminum Truck Bed Cover - Premium Design. Affordable Price.

I would suggest rust proofing, I keep my vehicles for a while and I feel it's a good investment

Also consider mud flaps, I like them-others don't

Have fun with your new truck!

Nice looking trucks everyone!


Peragon
I will Keep you in mind when the truck comes in!!


Like others said the tonneau cover to keep the elements out and How are the stock mud flaps or does it even come with some i can not remember?? If so what kinda are some beefy kind that wont get ripped off in a snow storm.
Speaking of snow storm hows the lower grill....Has it ever got plugged with snow say from busting open drifts on a road or lake for ice fishing??

Rust proofing where can i get this done? or whats the process??

thanks guys!!

Seat covers depend on what you're looking to get out of them. Wet Okoles are neoprene and expensive. Very nice from what I hear/read. Head waters makes some out of cordura. They are quite durable from what I hear/read. I wouldn't cover up leather seats if it was my truck, but that's just me. Make sure to post pics when you get the truck home.

What did you get out the door with that truck, i have been looking at the exact same truck/options. MSRP is north of 44k,

I wonder if m dealer is giving me enough at 41 out the door. I suspect not.
