Anyone have any decent sites for 2017 Accessories?
I don't know if you're going to order mud flaps or not, but Duraflaps has just contacted me to let me know that they are now producing their flaps for the 2017s.

Congrats on the new truck. I've got one ordered too. I just don't think about it. Its too long of a wait to get anxious, that'll just make it longer.

I had a set of Duraflaps on my 2014 F250. They're really nice high quality flaps. The nicest I've ever had. Maybe there's something else out there that's as good, but I haven't seen or heard of it yet.

I like the fact you can get them with the stainless on them. Also they look to be thicker than the stock ford mud flaps.

They are much thicker than the factory flaps. (I still have the factory flaps in the barn from my 2014) The stainless weights also are available with designs in them. I'm thinking of getting them with the King Ranch design in them for my wife's new 2017.

I have added the mud flaps to my list. The only other items I have on my list are pretty minor. I have the window visors, 5th wheel hitch adapter (to fit into the 5th wheel prep), Seat protector for my 2 labs, tri-fold tonneau cover, TPMS sensors for 5th wheel that integrates into the tow technology bundle. Currently looking into exhaust options.

Been looking for more out there, but as these trucks are so new, its not easy to find that much.

I've had the vent visors on past trucks, but for safety reasons will never buy them again.

What safety reasons?

The vent visor has been the documented "contributing factor" in several collisions. I personally have nearly had one myself, and I removed them shortly thereafter.

The Issue;
They widen the "A pillar" (the pillar beside the windshield) mainly on the drivers side. The "A pillar" is already wide on these trucks, but when the Vent Visor is added to it, it makes it wide enough that it totally blocks the visibility of an oncoming vehicle in an intersection. That's where I nearly had a head-on myself that would have been my fault.

I'm not necessarily downing the Vent Visor. They're nice, and a good idea. I've just had the Poo scared out of me and don't think the benefit is worth the risk. (Plus the other driver calling me an *%#hole for nearly hitting them head-on doesn't help things)

When I test drove the 2017 I didn't really pay attention to the width of the A pillars. They may be thinner than on the older trucks. If so, I may reconsider.
