What did you do to your Superduty today? 2018 version.

The 2018’s are starting to show up so I figured I’d start a mod thread for us. Got my ‘18 KR today and installed a Lomax Trifold hard Tonneau cover. 30 minute install, Low profile and looks great. Too cold yet to install the Tufskinz on the hood and tailgate.

I got Line-X on my bed last Thursday. My American Roll Cover should be here on Tuesday. I'm sure it will take me longer than 30 minutes to install.

I did an Access cover also. Had one on my 2011 and is still going strong.
Also installed the following:
- shorter 4x2 rear axle to spring spacers. Lowered rear 1.5"
- Weathertech mudflaps
- BuiltRight 2nd row seat back release strap
- 4x2 front air dam
- Horse stall bed mat
- OE tailgate shock kit
- Bull Ring stake pocket tie downs
- Husky X-Act fit floor mats
Still to do:
- Boss Plow mount
- Line-X bed spray
- TorkLift camper tie downs

I tried a couple FORScan re-configures and I hit a wall with the IPC when attempting to add digital temps to cluster. Hoping to find a solution. I think something changed for 2018.

Shouldn’t this be just added to the 2017 thread since they are the same truck body style etc?
Btw looks good

I've had mine for two weeks now. Bedliner sprayed, Windows tinted, Clear Bra applied (Hood, Fenders and entire length rocker panels), LED Step Light, Husky X-Act installed, FORSCAN changes made, and Pace Edwards Bedlocker installed (With Explorer Rails). Husky mud flaps and 3" Weigh Safe hitch are in the mail.

I figured this might offend some people. The other thread specifically says “2017 version” not 2017+ as the forum does. No malice intended I just figured the 2018 guys needed somewhere to post too.

I had always read this as stuff we've done to our trucks IN 2017... not necessarily on a 2017 model year.

no?

Those that did spray in bed liner...
Did you just go for under the rails, or opt for over the rails?

Finally typed the VIN for my '18 Limited in COTUS for the first time and it actually showed in order processing and lists delivery to NJ in 38 days. time to start ordering all the accessories and have them in the garage waiting and get all the Whelen lightheads ordered as well

got a call from my dealer that my '18 F250 CCLB is on the train; yesterday it was in Pennsylvania and as of 4am this morning the train was in Maryland. Seems to be taking a strange route to North Jersey, with that being said, today I called and made an appointment at the LineX dealer to get the truck sprayed, I am not sure if I want to go wit the normal black or if I want to pay the premium to color match the truck.
I also ordered the Kicker VSS audio upgrade just now along with Rigid SRQ Pro flush mount lights for the rear bumper.
Tonight when I get to work I will be ordering the Tonneau cover and am leaning towards the Extang brand just not sure what model. It is contingent upon whether or not I get a below rail tool chest or a cross over tool box.
Does anyone have any experience with any of the cross over tool box compatable tonneau covers and the amount of water possibly entering the bed? I like the concept but I am not sure the water tightness into the truck bed

There is a link floating around on here for a patch that Forscan did to allow the ‘18’s to change the IPC Module. I downloaded the patch and it works!
