What Did You And Your 09~14 Do Today

Just sold my '04 Lariat with 290k miles a few weeks back after I picked up my NTM '14 FX4. One of my favorite pages in the '04-'08 Threads was the "What did you do" thread...
Looked and looked here but couldn't find one for '09-'14 so I decided to start one. If there is one please delete or combine...

Today I got tired of the white boarder around my FX4 tail lights and spray painted the back side to hide it. Not perfect but alot better than the white boarder.

Went to my hometown for church and lunch with the family, then took the scenic route home to check on the conditions of crops in my area.

Removed all my badging and used automotive paint (Black & Ruby Red) to paint them. Added a Green Stripe flag in support of our troops and replaced the antenna with a 50 cal stubby, painted the tip Ruby Red.

I took 500# of cut juniper branches and brush to the brush pit.

Drove it to work. Went to a friends house after work to help on his kitchen project.

Battery died in my old Lincoln, a garage queen, 1989 LSC vintage with a whole 34,000 miles on it. Never seen the rain. Took the battery out, went to Walmart where the battery came from. The guy asked if I needed it tested. I told him no, I doubt there was any warranty left on it since it was 9 1/2 years old. He couldn't believe any battery would last long. Told him come September, the Walmart battery in my Bronco will be 11 years old and still works great. May die tomorrow but it worked twice today. Since I don't drive the Lincoln much, the new 65 series battery went in the 2014 SCrew and the SCrew battery went in the Lincoln. The battery in the SCrew was a beach to get out. It sits in a bucket that's the same size as the battery and no handles on the factory battery. I managed to rodeo it out of there anyway. Cleaned everything up, applied a generous coat of battery terminal protector, and then cleaned the inside of the truck while I reset all of the gauges, radio, usb, cam, clock, etc.

Probably no rust on the LSC either...don't see that up here in Wisconsin much. I'll have to remember the battery box issue whenever I end up replacing mine. Maybe make some kind of strap or something that goes under the battery and up the side that one can grab and pull?

You need this. It has saved me the pain of swapping many tractor batteries.

Did it yesterday, but put all new 6x8 Pioneer speakers in the doors. 4 way up front and 2 way in the rear doors. I've always had great luck with Pioneer, especially for the price. Took out a lot of the stock distortion at high volume. Still on the stock 4.2" head unit though, so can't wait to get that replaced and my 10" Kicker sub and amp installed.

Oil change and tire rotation, replaced my exhaust by removing the resonator and adding a flow master Super 44...oops..to loud and some drone. May need to step down the muffler to a series 40.

Picked up my wife from the airport 90 mile round trip with that exhaust...she liked it!
