That aviator console looks good!!! I want to change my 2nd row bench to captain chairs and do the aviator console.

Just received my 2nd row ac/heated seat controls. Going to install today. Have a pile of boxes to install this weekend. My wife is recovering from surgery, so I can't be away from her for long to get the goodies installed. But controls go in today. Maybe next weekend, I'll be doing the part installs below:
  • Mishimoto intercooler
  • aFe CAI
  • aFe strut tower brace
  • AWR rear diff brace (adds another bushing and bolt on for the rear diff. I know it likely won't stop the bolt from braking, but I am hoping if it does, it will allow us to limp home to keep the diff up and not drop out. I think ultimately I'm going to do the aviator rear subframe and swap out.
  • Black Ford performance lugs (why did they put chrome lugs on an all black truck and wheels)
  • Play with an initial tune I came up with. Looking to play with timing with the intercooler on and really wake up that 3.0

I‘m ready for winter with my new Hakka R5 tires. Got some RTX wheels as I went with 20” tires to save hundreds on each tire. Kal Tire here in Canada is the only distributor you can buy Nokian . I’ve used them on all my vehicles and always been very very happy .

Kinda forgot, I did these a week or so ago. Can't get used to relying on the cameras and sensors:

Has anyone tried to upgrade the rear HVAC control to auto using the Lincoln controller? Using FORScan you can enable auto. I’m wondering if I plug in the Lincoln controller it will work. 09229EE6-E513-4866-8B5A-D5DD140AA147.jpeg

That’s from a Navigator…different shape from our rear climate controls.

Installed rear LED Blinker, Reverse, and Plate lights. Messed with Forscan and turned off double honk, hyperflash. Turned on bambi mode.

2020 dash swapped to the piano black radio bezel and new smooth trim pieces wrapped in piano black vinyl. Had to tie the dash into the Aviator rear console that has piano black trim on it. FA5544D2-3C7E-4B67-8F60-056F334EA88B.jpeg

Seeing if you considered other tire sizes, such as 255/55 that some of us have or possibly 265 or 275/50?

These are same emblems I used as well. Super easy to install (for the most part with the proper prep) and the shipping was super fast!

no, I just went with what I assumed would be best overall. Left it up to the tire shop to make sure it was appropriate. Narrower the tire the better in snow
