Picked up our 24 Lariat Hybrid on Wednesday and have been busy over the last couple of days with a few accessory installs, So far really enjoying the new truck. Installed WeatherTech floor mats, Diode Dynamics LED bulbs, Mabett Flaps and Fender Flares, Synetica USA retractible Tonneau cover, Rhino roof rack and Elevate Bed rack. The next task is getting the Roadmaster baseplates installed so we can flat tow it.

Diode Dynamics led bulbs.... I have not heard anyone mention those, that I recall.
- where did you get them?
- reasonably priced?
- any hyper flicker/flash issues?

I bought them directly from the factory. They are expensive but I bought mine on their black friday sale. I had to shave off the tabs on the rear tail light bulbs and front turn signals. Everything else was plug and play. No hyperflash on the exterior but turn signal indication on the interior is blinking about twice it's normal speed. I may need to just install some of their resistors that I purchased with the order.

I installed the RoadMaster base plates, with all of the necessary accessories about a month ago on my Lariat Hybrid. It was quite a job. I've installed many of these base plates over the years. I believe this was the worst one I've done. However, it turned out better than I thought it would.

IMHO the Synetica is a Retrax clone. I could not see the difference in comparing the two except for the huge difference in price. I have not leak tested it yet but not too worried about that as we won't carry anything in there that water will damage. Will mainly be used for camping supplies. Don't feel too bad about spending money. I had paid for a Roadmaster baseplate kit to go with our NSA tow bar system. Just tonight decided to go with the Demco. So now need to sell the kit. I had 14 months to purchase my Mav accessories a little each month. But in this case should have waited on the Demco baseplate.

Sure. It appears to be well made and the install was pretty easy. I did have to remove the two Ford flex cargo sliding rail system as it interfered with the tonneau clamps. Gave them to my son who has a 22 Ford Maverick. It does take up a little bed space in the front but there is still room to put things underneath. I like the fact that you can lock it open in any position. It's a nice black color, pretty stout and comes with the T-Rails. Slides very easily from full open to close. To mount the Elevate rack I just slid in the T-bolts and fastened them down. I think Amazon had it on a black Friday sale for $50 off. That Elevate rack system is very heavy duty and well made. Really like it as well. Hope this helps.
Where you purchased your rack?

That actually looks nice. I didn't think I liked this color. Looks good with the black accents.
How did you get your post on the main news page? I tried to figure it out so I can post my Maverick build. Thanks.

Love the whole set up. I ordered the 2024 Lariat edition just for the solely reason as a work truck and something to tow behind an RV. I would be very curious to see how you set things up to tow. Expected delivery sometime early next year.

I can tell you that the wait is pretty painful. It was 14 months for us. But it is worth the wait. Have had so much fun with accessorizing our first pickup truck. Decided to go with the new Demco baseplate as it is the least destructive to the Mav fascia and active shutter system. Check out Tweetys for the best price. Any Demco baseplate is 575.59 with free shipping. Just order by the Demco part number 9519360. We will be using the NSA ReadyBrute Elite II system with the surge brake for the tow bars.
