Thanks for the information! I have an old hard-wired OBD scanner and need to upgrade. I assume you are referring to the Car Scanner ELM OBD 2 app? Which specific (high quality) OBD2 adapter would you recommend? I use an iPhone.
I bought this one and it works. I haven't used it much, and I don't know how HQ it is, but it did work, it is Wifi. I haven't used it since the first week after I realized it conflicted with CarPlay.

I had an older Bluetooth version and I put it in the truck, but honestly haven't opened CarScanner since then.

First weekend with the truck and had a blast knocking things off the list that I accumulated from this thread:

1. Swapped out chrome lugs for black on my Lariat wheels
2. Took care of the frunk beeping by removing the speaker
3. Installed the Megaohm solution for the reverse beeping (off-road use only, of course)
4. @BestEvMod center console organizer tray
5. Front license plate holder kit from Mishimoto to avoid drilling into the truck
6. Booked my Line-X appointment
7. Extension cord for my NEMA 14-50 mobile charger connection
8. Received FCSP and unboxed. Waiting on SunRun to install.
9. Watched 300 tonneau cover review videos LOL

Thanks for all of the info in this thread!

I bought the Ford Tonneau cover when building the truck. It takes up a bit more space than I wanted, but by far the best cover I have had. Incredible durable and strong. Without a doubt - you should go with that one if you are not price conscious.

Made a few upgrades! Sadly, after installing the bull guard it interfered with the sensors so had to take it off. Although, I then plasti-dipped the tow hooks with Lightning Blue and will reinstall tomorrow.

This has to screw up the adaptive cruise control, that assembly blocks the radar unit!!!

I had issue last night with a simple coating of wet snow slush interfering with the my radar and adaptive cruise, to the point that Blue Cruise would not engage

And it's blocking the air inlet for the radiator.

Does that mount affect the front parking sensors at all?

I’m using an OBDLink CX….. https://www.obdlink.com/products/obdlink-cx/ because it is also compatible with ABRP.

I originally went with the MX model, which works better with TorquePro (Android-only app), but it isn’t compatible with ABRP, I own an iPhone, and I wanted to use a single device.

No issues so far. Parking sensors work, Blue Cruise, etc. Somewhere on these forums I read to mount it different than instructed. The plate holder bracket itself is under the tow hook with the mounting piece on top. That lowers it ever so slightly versus having the plate holder on top of the tow hook. I'll try to snap a pic today.
