      I'm guessing the Power Pedal Adjustment feature.

      Negative.

      Do have photos of the day i got it, Then kind of how it came along.
      Next project it painting it olive drab. No shine at all like the canadian forces chevy trucks. All OD except the bottom of hte bumpers/doors, trim over the wheels, mirrors and spotlight (So all the plastic will stay black) Pushbar will stay black.. Rims im on the fence about doing OD and the center caps black or just do the rims OD and leave the caps off.. iv got winter rims that are the same so if i dont like the OD on the summers i can always swap em out for the winter rims :D

      Are the remote locks already in the PIU or do you need these from a junker as well?

      What did they wrap? Just the hood? It almost looks the texture of truck bed liner. Unique.

      Every 16,17 & 18 has it. You need to by the proper FOBs (on ebay or Ford dealer) and have the alpha numeric key inside each transmitter, programmed using Ford IDS with VCN II device. I did it with my 2016. Fortunately, i have a buddy that’s a dealer tech with his own rquipment to program. Many dealerships have zero interest in custom programming, especially for PI vehicles.

      Here's something fun-- in addition to a photo of my 2013 PIU since it's been in my possession, I have a photo from when it was first put into service. I already knew the agency it was from while bidding on the auction (probably even saw it around town a few times), but it was a very nice surprise to find the car's entire shop file in the front seat when I picked it up. It had thorough documentation from when it was new and its maintenance & repair history, including the Monroney window sticker. The first photo was part of their intake process, stapled to the front of the folder.

      Here it is in a more recent photo, 75k miles on the odometer later.

      I buy retired fleet vehicles with some frequency. Between the careful decommissioning they did and the documentation they passed along, I don't regret paying top dollar as far as auctions prices go for this one, despite having to replace all three motor/transmission mounts shortly after purchase. It was cleaner, better-documented, and still has had fewer issues, than any private party vehicle I've purchased.

      Here's two quick pics of my new (to me) 2013 PIU.
      I'll take more if it ever stops raining!
      Strike that, still trying to embed pics.

      Ok, let's try this!

      Just an FYI. That member hasn't been back here since he posted that reply July 29, 2017. Hopefully he is still around.
