First F-150 and pick up truck. 2021 XLT FX4 302A, V8! I’m excited. Looking forward to learning on how to make mods to it.

Lead Foot with 20’s. I’ve never been a car/truck guy, but now I’m obsessed!

From Chicago. New to the forum. In high school I drove an 87 Ford Ranger XLT and glad to be joining the Ford family again.

Congratulations on your new XLT @Jpad! Welcome to the forum. Do you have any photos of it? What kinds of mods do you want to do it?

It’s 2 weeks old, as of now I have a weather tech Tonneau cover, Linex bed liner.
Considering 2” leveling kit, but I drive a lot for work. Not sure that would be smart? Thoughts?
Tint on the windows.
K&N filter
Exhaust but nothing obnoxiously loud. Suggestions?
Tailgate Black decal.
Short Antenna.
Anything else you can suggest that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg?

Excellent color choice. One of my favorites. For exhaust Magnaflow has a few options you might want to consider.

K&N has probably the worst filtration of any filter made. They are made for only large particle filtration (sand, road debris, bugs) but are too porous to filtrate finer particles (silt, fine dust) which are still abrasive. Project Farm on Youtube did a good test on this - Which Car Air Filter is Best? Let's find out! Fram, K&N, Wix, Purolator, & AC Delco showdown - YouTube - I had a AFE on my last F150 that I thought fit well and worked well.

Magnaflow builds a good exhaust but has horrible customer service. Long story short - I bent up my tailpipe offroading on my old Jeep and tried to buy just a new tailpipe from them and they wouldn't sell me one. My 13' Ford F150 I purchased a "catback" Touring exhaust from them that was from the resonator back. They had their marketing wrong and told me "they couldn't do anything to help me." For what they charge for their exhaust systems you would think they should be more helpful to keep their customers. I spent close to $2k for both systems and they gave me zero help and support in return.
