Explored some trails around Lake Pleasant this past weekend, about 30 miles on dirt testing out my Dual XGPS160 unit. This gives me satellite gps on up to 5 devices that are Bluetooth capable. Next up will be to make a removable or fold down mount for my dash to house the GPS unit as well as my iPad that I’ll be using

What do you have for suspension? I rubbed my pinch weld and just recently my tire smacked my front bumper. So I still have some more trimming to do

Currently I have a bilstein 5100 shock (set to no lift) up front with a 4.5” lift spindle. In the rear I have 2017 Raptor take off FOX shocks with a 1” lift block.

I will be installing the FOX 2.5” factory series coilovers with resi up front with a 2.5” hydro bumpstop in a few weeks.

The Bilstein 5100 shock was a placeholder until I had the funds to order the coilovers.

Sounds like a good setup! I used to run the bilstein 5100’s on my previous F150 and they weren’t bad. How do you like the 2017 Raptor shocks? I have the Gen 1’s on my truck but I was thinking of modifying my mounts so that I could run the Gen 2’s

So far so good with the Raptor shocks. I have a 2012 XLT and they bolted right up. I didn’t modify any OEM mounting, I believe your truck would be the same.
