Yep - thinking I can do it for the $10 cost of the switch + FORSCAN. My OBD adapter comes in next week so I will finish it off then and post my results. Probably not the most essential option but I like the satisfaction of "just because I can".

Yesterday put on OEM front fender liner and Weathertech front mud flaps. Sometimes accessories from different manufacturers don't want to play nicely together. In this case only problem was having to put in one longer mudflap screw to go through liner too instead of just reusing original screws.

Rear Husky fender liner and rear Gatorback mudflaps were a similar situation. Husky fender liners went in yesterday without too much trouble, drilled hole in rear of each per the Gatorback video showing use of brackets supplied by Ford dealer in their kit.
Today tried to install the Gatorbacks but found that to install the rear braces for the mount brackets I had to drill three more holes in each liner, then notch the rear of each liner to clear the Gatorback mudflaps braces. A Dremel MultiMax tool made notching the liners easy. Also had to buy four quarter inch machine screws a half inch longer than those supplied with the mudflaps to go through the braces and liners, as the Husky liners were about a half inch away from the sheet metal that the braces mount too. Took awhile but I'm happy with the end result.


Angle the photo was taken from makes it look like the truck is 6 feet off the ground.

Hardware painted with black bedliner paint before installation.

Polished and sealed all my glass today (including sunroof, except windshield which is being replaced this week). I hate streaky, stained glass and it's much easier to get it in shape when it's new.

Also machine polished the piano black B-pillar trim. Used Porter Cable 7424 with 3" backing plate and Lake Country foam polishing pad with Meguiars M205. Came out pretty good, we'll see how it holds up.

Scrubbed an OEM bed mat that I got off CL for super cheap with some Purple Power to de-grease it. There is still some staining, but nothing transfers and there is no longer any odor.

I'm interested in how this turns out...

Wife used her fingernails to pull off the 4X4 side stickers. They both came off in one piece, probably as she did it in the hot sun today.

Meanwhile, also in the heat, I installed the Truck Covers USA roll cover that's been sitting in the garage for a month waiting for the truck to arrive. It went in or on without any problems. It's sorta like a roll top desk, with about 45 narrow (1 5/8" wide) powder coated aluminum slats that slide and roll into a small 8" square box at the head of the bed. Seems to work nicely. They say it'll hold 500 lbs. but I resisted the temptation to crawl onto it. I was worried that my Briggs & Stratton 3000 watt inverter generator would not fit, but looks like it will with a quarter of an inch to spare.

Since its raining a flood in Maryland today, I installed the Console organizer and Ford rubber floor mats. The wheel liners and the rear light bar will have to wait for a nicer day.

Picked it up from autogeek.net. I watched Mike Phillips' videos on how to use it, ended up doing it by hand on the new truck (I've used it with machine on some older vehicles).

I'm planning on this also. Have you got it working and where did you find the part numbers for the correct buttons?

Installed the 1 1/2" level on the F350 this morning. Took about an hour and looks great with the new Toyo open Country Extremes (295/65/20)!

I have been building a custom dog crate. It is being made to take up the back with the seat folded up. Hold 2 dogs and be able to fold up.
I still have a long way to go, but it should be very cool.
