    Thanks! Unfortunately no, I went with these because they're not as obviously poked out as some of the other fender flares.

    I have the smooth style wider version to put on mine. This makes me want to sell them and go this route.

    Hey Josh, I see that the BDS kit doesn't force you to maintain your stock beams. Would you be willing to part with yours? I got the fabtech ones and they requires the stock beams but unfortunately mine went into the trash before I received my new ones so they're collecting dust ATM. I'd really like to get it sorted out and install the beams while the front bumper is off the truck to make life easier.

    where did you get the diff cover from? I don't see it on Ford's Performance website anymore.

    Does it require more fluid than the OEM cover? LIkely my next mod at 20k after seeing the amount of metal files on your cover.

    Same capacity as stock. It’s actually a rebranded Dana Spicer cover.

    Hey Josh, I for one will be following this thread closely as I am definitely interested in the AMP Power Steps as well.

    For the time being, I did get a set of the HDX Stainless Dropsteps (my Wife INSISTED!), I even had them powder coated to match the Magnetic Sport Trim. But I'm not a big fan of any side steps as I think they detract from the lines of the truck. The Power Steps would be just the ticket! (hidden when not in use, and easy on the Wife!)

    And with your install/write-ups, I would trust/rely your expertise above and beyond that of any accessory manufacturer! :handshake:

    Keep up the good work, your truck is bad-ass!

    Cheers! :beer:
