Really !! I can add a cabin filter ! Has anyone else done this ? I couldn't understand why Ford didn't have a cabin filter considering that these trucks are going offroad. When I bought my 04 Lariat I thought for sure that Ford would have added it to the all new truck but no ! My 07, 09, 010 don't have them either and I thought for sure that the new 09 would have it. Kinda disappointed.
changing you cabin air filter can make a big diffence in the indoor air quality of your vehicle. Last time I went to the dealer to get my $15 oil change they asked me If I wanted my cabin air filter changed. I said 'How much?' he told me $120 plus labor. I said I'll think about it. The filters are only $20 bucks. easy DIY. saved me close to $200 bucks. They do make a big diffence though, I noticed the diffence right away. when looking for the filters I found a funny article about them.
I want to retrofit this to my 09 as well. I will continue to search the part numbers posted above. Not knowing the system layout, one advantage to this beyond the air quality, is that it prolongs the life of the blower motor. If anyone has ever pulled a blower out of any car with a few years age, it's amazing the blower motors last as long as they do with all the crud that collects around them.
