Added sun visor leds thanks to @Toddman41.

Very easy install. Now I’m 100% led, I think.

Pics, or it didn't happen. I ordered mine that day and still haven't arrived from CA. Got my reverse leds today though and installed.

I took out the two screws and pulled the whole thing out.

Switch arrived for Tow/Haul!

Not an Explorer-I upgraded the '18 Fusion Titanium from Sync 3.0 to Sync 3.4.2021. The Cyanlabs program worked perfectly!

I just ordered the Steeda Explorer Rear Sway Bar upgrade kit, as well as their heavy-duty Trailing Arm set, as all the reviews for suspension handling improvement results are very positive.

Will update on how it all went, once I've gone through the install process...

where did you route the wire into the cabin? Through the firewall?
I used the grommet that is used for the windshield washer at the back of glove box, it is a little tight to get to .

I initially wasn’t going to add oil cooler, but after making low offers on the oil cooler(35.00 for brand new), oil filter adapter (40.00), i decided to go ahead and get the rest of the parts. Lower radiator hose from advance auto, using 20% coupon code and 10.00 speed perk. Waiting for hose assy to go from radiator hose to oil cooler(be here monday) 135.00 for all parts.

2014 FPIU
About two weeks ago I bought my 2014 FPIU. Today, I finally had some time to dig in and sort through it. I removed a whole lot of screws/nuts/bolts/zip ties/etc., got my horn working, reattached the rear washer fluid nozzle so it no longer sprays into the cargo area, found/fixed/reattached the cargo light, tucked all the rubber flooring under the trim/kickplates, plugged all but one hole in the roof, and discovered the rear seats recline a bit. Loving this thing so far.
