I think a hair dryer will loosen the stickers enough to get them off. I don't know about the chrome on the mirrors.

If you have a truck with carpet, invest in a set of WeatherTech floor mats. And to protect your door edges get a set of door edge guards from BumperDefender.com. Next, if you have a chrome grill, put a set of Billet Grilles on and some mud flaps.

Each month check your water separator under the truck. Carry a 3 gallon bottle of Urea in your bed because Ford does not fill the urea tank all the way up when they ship it. It will last less than 3000miles before you'll have to add some. Take the truck out and run the s.... out of it, and have fun

You can also check the urea level with the LCD display (if you have it). It's not real accurate... I think it just says either "Ok" or "below 1/2". And then when it is getting low, it will harass you everytime you get in your truck. And if you keep ignoring the urea message it will eventually limit your speed.

I buy mine at OReilly's, two bottles at a time and keep them fairly warm, they don't like to be frozen. The tank will hold about three gallons. Please make sure you don't add it to the wrong tank. I know that sounds impossible, but believe me it has been done. It will void your warranty if water gets into the engine.

Everything that will yeild a noticable amount of MPG gains voids your warrenty. Normal maintenence, Tire PSI, and driving habbits is about all you can do. Sorry
