2018 F150 XLT Sport 3.5L Ecoboost
« on: March 25, 2019, 11:01:45 PM »
I traded in my 2016 F150 2.7 Ecoboost for a 2018 with 3.5 ecoboost  it comes with factory towing mirrors that are electric and heated which is a big upgrade for me since I had the manual towing mirror on my 2016. It comes with the 302A equipment group.

Can't wait to try out the 3.5 Ecoboost for towing my 21 BHS! The downside my new truck doesn't match my Blue 21BHS.

Will post pic with the trailer when it will be out of storage!

Easy fix. Just find an older dark gray 21BHS and trade. Hmmmmm. Lots of luck  :) :( . 
BTW, nice truck. It should work fine.

Any 20 minute job can be stretched to a week with proper planning

Haha yeah! My 13QBB was that color! It would have matched!

Don't you know, Black goes with anything.

F150 3.5 ecoboost, 21 rbs/bhs, made for each other (speaking from experience)

Front plate are no longer a requirement in my province so I removed the front plate holder. I really like the looks!!

You will love your new 3.5.  I traded in my Tacoma and bought a 2017 3.5 and loved the difference. Did you get the MAX Tow Package?
