    Received my upgraded cargo light back from Dan Smith at DAYTIME BriteLites, so now the interior LED conversion is complete. Also met yesterday with a great Forum member, most generous with his time to do the Forscan mods I wanted: Bambi mode, GPS while driving & turn signal/lane change from 3 to 5 blips. I think I'm good to go now.

    Do you happen to know how the lane change signal was changed from 3 to 5 blips? I would love to have that, as 3 is too short I feel.

    Easily done in like 3 minutes using Forscan software. There are several different choices for the number of "blips". So far, 5 is waaaay better than 3.

    Speaking of Forscan & forum members, are there any Forscan users in Tampa Bay area? I'd love to change some settings, like lane change from 3 to 5 or 6, perhaps a couple of others as well. I'm just not willing to trust my vintage Windows Vista laptop & my extremely knowledgeable computer expertise (NOT) with any of these programs.

    I didn't do them today but just found this thread. Again. :)

    Put in a vantrue camera with the wires running along the windshield, inside the a-piller cover, under the dash to the power outlet in the console. Long way around but it works.

    And a couple of months ago I had the American Racing wheels and Pirelli tires installed.

    Still have some things to do like the chrome handle covers, blacking out part of the grill and some striping.

    Today I installed a aFe panel filter, throttle response is better and power across all rpms feel better. WOT power feels really good. Fuel economy still to be determined.

    What engine do you have and what do you expect to get out of this?

    Stock Rims Painted Glossy Black

    So I had my stock wheels on my 14 Explorer XLT painted glossy black by my mechanic. He charged me $600 for the wheels and $75 for the black lugnuts as I wanted them replaced and that includes 3hrs of him peeling off my old plast-dip. Great price. Picture of how it turned out is attached. Also had my back bumper fixed and repainted due to scratches and he only charged me $350. If any of you are in the West Los Angeles area Moises at OTC Auto Repair on Overland Ave will help you out. Couldn't have been more happy of how it turned out. Next is the SSI tune!

    Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
    Looks good. Are you also going to replace the blue FORD emblem with a black one?

    Black ones have chrome as well. They just change the blue to black. Also, you can get one like the 3rd picture in this post; What did you do to your 5th Gen today?
