My Build Thread - 2015 F350 Lariat

Figured I'd start my own build thread so that I can keep track of all the mods I do on this truck for myself as well as anyone that likes to follow or view these types of threads. I wish I had done this with all the mods I did on my 2006 F250 but I failed to really keep a running thread on another forum. Just posted on 'pic threads' and 'what did you do to your truck threads' as I went.

Here was the 2006 when I first got her

And this is what she morphed into right before I traded it in (note, ended up ptm rear bumper, replaced running boards with black ones and ptm front bumper but didn't get a picture of that beforehand )

That don't even show all the mods done under the hood and truck...

So anyhow, here is the 'new to me' used truck when I purchased it...29,500 miles

It's a 2015 F350 CCSB. Lariat Ultimate Package, FX4 Package (decal removed), Snow Plow Prep, 5th Wheel Prep, Spray In Bed Liner, Tonneau Cover, 20x8 OEM Wheels, Moon Roof

First mod was to add weather tech liners to the truck...no pic.

Second mod was to add kick protectors to the back of the front seats. I have 2 boys, and they love to put their muddy boots on the back of the seats for some reason...

Got them off Amazon...cheap...

The next mod I made was replaced the factory fuel cap with a lockable cap. Stant 10510D cap.

Not happy with not being able to put the plastic ABS clip into the radius arm. Would think they would supply in the kit an extension clip or something. Will have to fab up something myself I suppose.

Install time...5 hours
2 - guys
2 - 3 ton jacks
4 - 6 ton jack stands
hand tools and air tools

Had to adjust the steering wheel a bit after installation but seems to be tracking just fine.

I purchased a Rancho Steering Stabilizer kit but did not install that today. That may go on tomorrow.

Will be shoeing it up with 35x12.5R20 Firestone Destination MTs this coming week. Will update when done.

More mods to come...

I like where you're going with this. Looking better already and can't wait to see the next installment.

I do want to comment on the rear sitting lower than the front. Are you leaving it like that? Seems like some folks like it that way and if you do, hey that's great. Myself, I'm a fan of having some rake to it.

It's a 1/4" higher in front. I don't like bull ******* it. Not sure if that has to do with the fact I have snow prep coils on the front or not. I plan on running air bags in the rear in the future, so that should level it up or put a slight rake back into it as well as help when loaded with my 36' camper. I don't want to go any higher with just blocks, so add-a-packs or new rear leafs would be my only other option to correct unless there is something else out there. I think the bags will work just fine once I get them.

Hate the boots...may take them off. Anyone run these ones specifically without boots? Any dirt contamination issues? Not that the boot is dirt proof.

I forgot to add this mod that was done a week ago.

Used ForScan software and BT ELM327 to enable the DPF % screen.

Next on the list, will be spraying the underside with Fluid Film and Installing a Tailgate Assist. Should also be getting the tires installed this week when they come in.

Something small arrived on my porch yesterday, so before it got too dark, decided to install it.

I was afraid to just let go of the tailgate the first 3 or 4 times I tried it out. But...I think I'll get use to it.

Still waiting on the tire guy to call me telling me my tires are in...

Trucks Looking good!!! Does the Tailgate assist work well with the Step tailgate?
What is the brand that you put on it?

Very nice build, the 6.0 looked pretty nice when you were done with it.

Yes, works fine with the step gate. It's the DeeZee assist.
