      This was over the last few weeks. But changed out all the interior lighting, license plate, and high beams with LEDs. Debadged the rear hatch. 30% ceramic tint on the front windows. Smoked reflectors on rear bumper. Did some changes with Forscan. So far, so good. Even though it's the slowest car in the stable, it gets the job done. Trying to figure out if I powdercoat the tailpipes when I take the stock wheels in to get them powdercoated gloss black.

      Installed new 3-light type fog lights that do DRL (ring), fog (yellow half), daylight (other half in white). Safe to say, I'm done with the front lights :-D (I can control all of them from a switch panel, including logo).

      Added EGR running boards this weekend. Makes accessing the roof rack much easier and I like the factory look.

      I don’t know why people do the completely blacked out Ford ovals. Looks really tacky and cheap. To each his own, I guess.

      Black with white lettering would looks so much better. Even the ones with colored lettering look awful.

      Everyone has their opinion... you can read my opinion on opinions in my signature below.

      When it comes to the ovals I think the explorer front end would look better with out any ovals, but that's another opinion so it doesn't count

      This may be a deal maker for me. I don't have a sunroof on my '13 XLT but want to install a cam close to the mirror. I didn't want to try to route the power cord all around the windshield to a power source behind / below the dash. Your tutorial has renewed my interest in doing this. Thanks.

      Out for 3 Days and my ride needs a new battery. The original one lasted a year and 10 months. That’s almost too soon isn’t it?

      Your warranty should take care of that.

      My battery died at 8,000 miles--came out Super Bowl sunday to a vehicle that couldn't even light a dome light. Battery was tested for two hours, the tester wouldn't fail it, before the service advisor did me a solid and said, "I know this is going to fail, I'm just going to write you up a battery."

      I'm wondering how long this one will last that's in it now.

      Separately, as far as what I did to mine, last week I got it undercoated and detailed. Lasted a few days before the rains came again. Today I discovered that one of my tail lamps is beginning to fail -- LED swap. Oh well, those were quite cheap and I have literally 5-6 more bulbs that size that I never used. I will have to do the swap this weekend.

      Also crossed over 33k this week, having to put nearly 80 miles on the thing alone today. Car was running on fumes when I got to the gas pump. Say what you want about the 2.3L EcoBoost, but you know what? 400 miles per tank, easy, is quite nice. No matter what I do to this car, by the time I refill, it's always hovering somewhere between 24-25 MPG. I'll take that for this vehicle's girth.

      Ended up with the NAPA LEGEND Battery. Got a sweet deal. My guys pretty much just charged me for labor. I love CarOne Auto. Guys are the best.
