Opinions on first things to do to the truck

New member, as of yesterday. We get our F150 Crew Cab XLT 5L in a couple of days. I have used Rust Check on my other vehicles. I am looking at a speedliner spray-in bedliner. Last for now is a K&N air filter.

Opinions on Rust Check and Speedliner spray-in liner?

Thanks

Welcome to fordtough, so are you just going with a K&N filter, or are you doing the K&N C.A.I with filter. enjoy your new truck and post pictures of it.

Mine came with factory tint. My first mod was a stereo system

Rust Check is cheap insurance, never a bad idea and tint is usually one of my first choices as well.

I've always had the drop in box liners in the past, but seriously considering a spray in liner for my next truck.

Don't know about speedliner, but as odd as this sounds, saw an episode of "Mythbusters" recently where they tested the Line-X spray liner in a variety of different situations and was quite impressed with how durable it was.

I'm right there with the other guy's. I had the tonneau cover before the truck, then tint a week after I had the truck. I've never heard of speedliner before, I'm going with Line X when I get my truck done. For CAI I had AEM on one of my old trucks and on this one I'm going with the Airaid box/filter, I'm not a big fan of the oil type filters my 2cents

Thanks for the responses everyone. I am trying to close the deal today (my trade-in is in for body work from a not-my-fault accident. They need to go to the shop and take a look. Once that is done, we have a number in mind. Lots of great incentives at Ford until Tuesday.

I like the spray-in liner idea. It takes about a day.

Tonneau cover is trifold.

K&N drop-in replacement filter.

Rust Check.

I'll post when I get it delivered.

Tkx.

Ford box liner thrown in with purchase.
Tint front side windows to match the rest.
Tonneau cover.
Polish or wax the chrome rims cause the brake dust takes hold pretty quick
Crown Rust Proofing
Replace speakers (stock ones sounded pretty muffled in my 2011...first time I've had to do this)

Not so sure about the air filter if you're not going all the way with a CAI.

The rims are chrome clad, so i believe they are plastic?? over the steel. I'll keep them nice and shiny. My RX8 had lots of brake dust on the wheels, so I'm used to that particular issue.

I'll listen to the stereo for a while and see what is sounds like, then look at a speaker swap.

Is there a difference btw drop in and full CAI? I have a 2012 Challenger R/T Classic with 6 speed. The K&N drop in look to offer the same performance as a full CAI. What is it like on the F150? Nice bling regardless.

Can't wait to get the truck. Maybe tomorrow...
