Day 1 with the truck!

Walked in looking for a 2020 XLT FX4, ended up walking out with a 2019 Lariat 4x4. First vehicle purchase and after 5 months of ownership I can say the truck still brings a huge smile to my face. My first vehicle was a 1998 v6 Ranger, I loved that little truck! I carried the name Ranger Rick over from my 98 to 2019 lariat! Lots of plans for this truck, stay tuned for more! Version 1 is complete! (Pics below)

Having fun yet?😊

That 5hp gain from the Damper is only in the 2020 models. Ford detuned it because people were breaking bones due to muscle and calcium loss.

The 2019 models have the default 9.3hp and 15 torque. Take your vitamins.😁,

There's setting in Forscan to reset it, but nobody from the geek squad has found it yet.

That's looking really great! Terrific stance.

I noticed you removed the front air dam. If you still have it, you can easily and quickly mod it to close up the gap between the bumper and the skid plate. It will help keep out rocks, mud, snow, etc.

I posted how to do it here.
