Those look really nice! I painted the air cover on my Harley and it has held up really well for years but it's aluminum.

I had a couple of large flakes taken out of the Ranger cover when I had my oil changed this week so eventually I'll have to redo it. It took a lot of coats because the paint wants to run really bad on that foam.
Wonder why they made it out of foam? That's a first for me.

Maybe helps deaden the direct injection clatter?
Hi Tfisher15,

When I purchased my 2019 Lariat, I popped the hood and saw this engine cover. Being an Ford NVH Technical in my past...I knew immediately that this was a sound deadening addition to the Lariat package. And....It works...

Best,

I have been receiving my Lariat mirror swap supplies. Wires, connectors, connector pins, cable sleeving , and the crown - 1 Lariat mirror in Oxford white! Still searching for the driver side.
I have a thread started to document my plan and eventual step by step install HERE.

ReadyLIFT Intrusion Beam Kit

My 275/70/17s on +15mm offset wheels and a 2-1/2” level kit are about as big you can go without rubbing. After loosening and pushing them back, at full lock, my front crash bars clear by about 1/2”. Driver side rear; 1/4”. Passenger side rear; an uncomfortable 1/8”. If I’m ever fully locked and compressed even a small amount, I’ll be rubbing.

Not after these are installed. Besides, look at how hefty they are. They’re even more impressive when you feel their weight in your hands. On first blush, I’m sure they are stronger than the factory beams. Beefy!

So, I now have a project. Off come the front fender flares, the factory fender trim and necessary parts of the front bumper - I want to remove the bars intact. Besides, from the stories I’ve heard from other members, using reciprocating saws and cut off wheels are a big PITA. Work smarter, not harder.

Besides, I plan to mod my original grille into an insert for the lower grille opening - no ACC, so no issues - this will be much easier with things removed.

I saw a video of a guy airing down with one of those deflators. I’ve never used or ever seen one before - slick gadget. 👍

Got my engine cover and installed it.

Shout out to @RockinBob246 for the mounting bolts.

Thanks!!!

I honestly don't know if it makes it any quieter.

Compared to my Jeep with the V8 and 3" Flowmaster 70 exhaust, my Ranger has always been whisper quiet so this was more of a "I want it to look right under the hood" kind of addition.

Yeah, 69 428 Mach 1, not mine sorry to say.
Took another look at the pic. If you zoom on the shock tower, the top sticker says Shelby GT-500.

So unless someone added a Shelby sticker........
