Utilized Fords factory fog light circuit. Since Raptors did not have fog lights i needed to buy a new F150 headlight switch w/ Auto and fog lights. I have 4 Baja Designs up front in the fog light pocket, two clear, two amber. I want to use the clears for fog lights with the headlights. I needed to read and find the socket pins and which ones i needed for the headlight plug, steering column plug, PCM plug and BCM plug. Once these were discovered and ordered i just had to put it all together.

Headlight switch on auto, pulled out for fogs, works like factory and frees up an upfitter switch since utilizing factory citcuits and wiring.

been MIA because my trucks been at Ford for over a month. Took it early May for the leadframe warranty/recall. Transmission shifted from 5th to 1st at 60mph and wouldnt shift out. Is a known issue and an extended warranty item. Except ford has been out of stock on those since December.

But were back, they put new trans fluid in (wasnt supposed to via the work order) and a new transmission filter. So at least it got a little boost in health.

5th to 1st at 60? Bet that was a bit of a pucker moment
definitely is.
Glad to see they got you fixed up in a decent amount of time. Scary to think some dealers are letting customers drive away with these issues - like myself - until they get the part in. Should be trouble free moving forward, even more so with the filter/fluid change.

removed my 1/4 seat and built a fridge stand that bolts into factory bolts. Takes 5 min to swap seat back in. Will be great for road trips/camping.

I also added helper bags that are free floating so it will not affect down travel. Will come in handy with towing the boat and other random things.

Also added the Airlift single compressor with switch and dump valve to be able to adjust on the fly instead of a exterior schrader valve. I wired it in to a factory upfitter switch.

Your truck looks so nice with all the color matching. You’re building a great Raptor and can’t wait to see how it’s all gonna come together In my head I was thinking dam this thing needs a front bumper. Like always I keep my mouth shut and see what happens. i like it.

still pretty good with all that considered.

We also straightened out the throttle response and shift pressure. Really helped overall drivability.
no doubt. assuming premium fuel? Have seen a nice improvement on this tank of 93 on my 5.0 opposed to the typical 87.
