Bought some 2012 Lariat wheels for my truck. Came with the tires and all so I just retained the KR centers. They are 35 x 12.5 x 20. Gives it a nicer look but still, just barely, fits into the garage. Added the power-fold mirrors a few weeks ago. Am nearly done with it and will just drive it without going mod crazy.

Had the day off work today do to the weather. At least that was my excuse. So I took advantage and installed my Christmas gifts. Installed a new tailgate handle with a built in reverse camera, installed a new Kenwood nav unit , (with sync retention), four new pioneer ts-a series speakers, sound proofed the doors, did the door seal mod ( tried both 5/16" and 3/8" surgical tubing). And even straightened out my crooked from factory rear bumper, that irritated every time I looked at it.
Truck is a 2016 f250 xlt cc diesel.

A few weeks ago installed ScanGuage 2. It took about 5 minutes, no drilling, no screws, nada. Connect it to the ODBII Port (very easy port under the driver's side dash,, no crawling under, run the cable, no batteries, all done and leave it in place. The device shuts off after RPM's go to zero and comes back on when you start the engine or press the home button. It is always backlit when on with adjustable brightness and very cool standard or custom color adjustments to match your interior dash colors or taste.


At a glance with Scanguage 2, I can see a digital display of the oil temp, water temp, speed, MPG, Tranny temp, air intake temp and many more except turbo temp. With Scan Guage II, you can see and clear fault codes and turn off the check engine light.

Amazon Amazon


Autozone had them on sale for $119.00


Keep an eye on critical engine sensors or performance. Don't let something catch you by surprise and know when something with the vehicle is changing.


I only wish it could silence the door chime and very annoying 5 minute chime when you first get in and start the engine. That stupid chime goes off what seems like 10 times.

How much does the front bumper weigh and are you concerned about reduced MPG, excessive front suspension wear, ball joints and tire wear due to the extra weight?
Is the guarded heavy duty front bumper primarily for front end deer/animal protection?
The web site below shows totaled vehicles from deer hits. The area I'm in reported 170 deer hits called in this past year (2017).
I've been thinking about some additional front armor but don't want to add 500lbs to the front end.

This is nice: https://www.fabfours.com/product/pre...ont-bumper-18/
and only weighs 185 lbs..(Hmmm,,, That sounds a little lite for a full guard) I like the idea of installing a wench bumper just in case some day I would like to add a wench.

I was close with my guess of 200lbs.
The truck gets single digit MPG, that's never been a concern with this truck lol
I have X code front springs which are the plow prep springs, way more then needed. Not enough weight to worry about suspension components.

I picked this one because it was the best deal, I dent my stock bumper and figured what the heck why not upgrade. No idea how it will actually handle a hit.

Should handle a hit a lot better than a stock bumper will, the one Iím picking up is a FabFours as wellAlso plugged in my block heater as itís getting cold and when I start the truck prefer to warm up quickly

Replaced the glow plug relay while the outside temp was above freezing but well below 45. Then started the truck.

Then took a sip of slushy icy water from the bottle on I had left in the cup holder days before.

Well after 12 years of no problem starts, the old girl has become hard to start on cold mornings. So, added the block heater cord, plugged in this morning for about 4 hours and wa-la, started like a new truck. It was 17f here this morning.
Its an 05, 6.0 with 263k. Hope to get a few more years out of her.

I upgraded from HIDs to LEDs for the headlights and Driving lights. They were a Christmas give from the wife. No more waiting for the bulbs to warm up. No more RFI when the lights are on and the loss of distance channels. Worst part of the job? Single digits when I was working on the truck plus all the road salt on the truck. However, very nice.

@Batman7777 SG2 are nice. Many of us have them. Definitely a nice tool to have for quick code reading and live data from the CMs for informational purposes. I had one in my F150 and it moved to my 250. It was really great knowing temps were in check or a possible problem in the future.

As I was driving to work this morning and the truck's thermometer was reading -15 F, I was thanking the Ford engineers for taking the cold weather testing they did seriously when they designed my 2016!
