New 2015 F350 Platinum




The outer Lights are KC 8 Inch HID lights. I am replacing the 2 center KC 6inch with 2 more 8 Inch HID lights. Total cost of all 4 lights is $2,200. But they sure light up the lonely Texas roads at night.










Just got my new 2015 F350 Platinum. Had some extras added to it. I am think of getting a Tunner for this truck. Can anyone recommend a good one that thye might have. I want MPG and of course towing. Here are a couple of pictures of my new Beast.

2200 bucks for lights! Wow I spent 200 bucks on my 20" and 40" led light bars that equal about 24,000 lumens.


Nice truck by the way!

Beautiful rig...

I don't think I would mess with tuners until it was at least broken in and then you may find that you won't even want to mess with it...

This was a key reason for my spending 5k more to buy a 2015 over a 2014...

Hay Big-Foot, thanks for the reply....do you think I will be getting better MPG after break in. What considered break in for these trucks. What are you getting for MPG on yours. I only have about 750 miles on the truck now.

My last diesel was not fully broken in until it had 20k on it, but it was delivering reasonable fuel economy by 5k after I had worked the heck out of it for a couple thousand miles..
Others will probably chime in on this..
One thing you have to look out for is voiding your warranty.

I will post a picture of a sticker under the hood of my 2015 for Ford's take on modifications...

Yeah, that's why you buy a 10 year old truck is to put tuners on.

You will void the warranty.

Tommy,

Welcome to the forum, a recommendation you post in the 6.7 forum and join us over there! Beautiful rig by the way. I am sure somebody out there has tuned a 2015, but it isn't widely known right now. 2011s-2014s all day you could tune.

There is one shop owner that has tuned his 15 that I know of, but right now I don't think there is anything available to the public. Might have to wait bit yet.
