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.
Makes sense, I have had the vent visors on my 2006 since I got it and am used to it, but definitely know what you are talking about. I have adapted to make sure I look around the A pillar dramatically to make sure there is not a car or person. I have had a close call or two myself.

Did it take 3" to level your truck up front, or did your raise the rear as well?

Added my old truck's tool box and CB antenna in, then purchased a bed mat from ford to help preserve the bed until I can afford Line-x

Why not just get a plastic drop in for $200? You won't have a rust concern, which was the biggest problem with drop-in's to begin with. They have a no skid bottom in them now, and if you happen to dent a wheelwell you'll never see it.

I fractured my arm slipping on my last drop in bed liner, since then I have determined that I personally will not own another plastic liner. Also when I did remove the drop in There was at least 5lbs of dirt and leaves under it which I was not fond of.

Got my Husky Weatherbeaters in today. They fit well and feel durable while not being too slick. I am happy so far. My mom has the Husky Xact Fit in her SUV and they feel softer than the Weatherbeaters, but not as tough.

They look as nice as the Weathertech's. I have a question. Do they cover the dead pedal on the drivers side? Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much are they for the entire set?
Thanks, Bob
