What did you do to your F150 today?

There is a thread like this in the Super Duty section. It's interesting to see what everyone is doing with their trucks. The thread contains a little of everything from adding on accessories to routine maintenance. It would be nice to see what everyone is doing with their F150's.

Today I added a DU-HA bin to my truck. I never heard of these things until seeing them in the Super Duty Thread. It mounts in by replacing a couple bolts on the existing under seat bin with easy to use thumb nuts.



This is from the drivers side with the seat up.



This is from the passenger side with the seat down.

It looks like it would be noisy unless you padded small items to keep them from moving around. I like the idea of it though.

I have a pillow and blanket in one section & wind breaker coveralls in another. In the bin that comes from the factory I have all my ratchet straps. I did have to put an old towel in there to stop the rattling.

Good idea! There's a similar thread in the 1980-86 section that now has over 18,000 replies in its just over 6 years of existence.

As for what I did to my 2015 today, that would be nada. It hasn't moved since dragging Big Blue home from Florida in a 17 hour 75 MPH dash. I think it deserves a good long rest. Besides, I've been spending my time on Big Blue.

I was considering this as well. It actually looks good in your pics. I was not sure if I should go with Husky or the Du Ha. Is the quality any good or is it flimsy plastic. It looks pretty substantive. I believe it is pricey though!

So far I put a set of weathertech mats in the front found them at Advanceauto $129 and used a $40 coupon code and free shipping, also weathertech mud flaps all the way around. Next I need the full floor pan for the rear.

The Du-Ha bin is pretty sturdy. I think it will hold up very well. It was kind of expense but since I had $80 gift card for Summit Racing the price I ended up paying wasn't too bad.

I put WeatherTecs in my truck as well. I wanted them because the rear mat covers the whole floor.

We have just installed a 6" lift kit and a set of 35" tires on our 2016 Ecoboost Platinum. We're currently setting up a detailed video review of what has been done to the truck and going to post it in our build thread here: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...arid-team.html

Thanks. I subscribed to your thread. I'll be shopping for iPhone holders next. Maybe you could toss one of those in your build?

I was looking for a way to use my phone for Navigation and ran across this mount. It seems to be doing the job and it was inexpensive. It holds the phone in a vertical or horizontal position. In the vertical position it seems a little unstable however it did stay in place for the 35 trip I made. The horizontal position is very stable. I drove in heavy traffic and the holder did it's job well. It kept the phone in place with all the braking and lane changing maneuvers.

It fits like it was designed for the truck!



I put the phone case in to give an idea of what the phone looks like in the holder.

Added an AVS Aeroskin II. Fairly straightforward install, but I did need to use a heat gun to reshape an edge to get it to match the contour of the hood better.
