We'll evenly space these as this will allow the rail to sit level with the side rail of the bed. Now that we have our plastic backing on the back side of each of the Roll X rails, now, we're going to go ahead and put the weather stripping across the front of the bed as this vehicle does not have a drop in plastic liner so we'll need this piece of weather stripping to make our Tonneau cover weather tight. This again has two sided tape on the back of it and we'll just cut it to length either using a pair of scissors or a razor knife.

When installing this, were going to need to turn the nut 360 degrees nine times. To make things a little bit easier, were going to take our paint marker and mark one side of the nut so that we can keep count as were turning the nut in tighter.

2013 Ford F-150 Questions and Answers


  • Camera Recommendation for Monitoring Boat Trailer While Being Towed
  • For watching a boat while towing I would recommend the Swift Hitch Camera part # 04928. The magnetic camera base allows it to mount virtually anywhere so that it can be positioned exactly where you need it. Or if you wanted a system that allows for the use of two cameras you would want the 2 camera version of this system part # SH03. I attached review videos for both systems for you to check out as well.

  • Wireless Camera Recommendation for Rear of Camper
  • We have two completely wireless options that would work well for you. The first would be the SwiftHitch Portable Camera w/ Night Vision, part # SH02. This wireless system the camera uses has a 300 foot range which will be reduced somewhat by the trailer, but it would be an excellent choice for the rear of your camper. The batteries will last up to 10 hours. If you have an Andriod or iOS smart phone, Rampage offers the Wireless Backup Camera System, part # RA7710. The camera would use...

  • As long as you have factory power locks the # PAL8250 would work on your 2013 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew. If you don't have power locks you would instead want the part # PAL8200 with the switch kit part # PAL9520.

  • Tonneau Cover Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-150 6-1/2 foot Bed
  • The Trac System that your 2013 Ford F-150 with a 6-1/2 foot bed might have would be a rail system that runs the length of the bed sides right under the bed rails. If you don't see what looks like a track system underneath the bed rails of your truck then you don't have the Trac system. For a Truxedo Lo Pro QT tonneau cover for your truck if it doesn't have the Trac system you would want the # TX598101. If you do have the Trac system you would want the part # A91359 for a similar tonneau.

  • Recommended Putco Donut to Mount to Crossover Toolbox
  • I spoke with my contact at Putco and he told me the diameter of the Putco SSR Locker Truck Bed Side Rails, part # P79829, is 1-3/4 inches. For a donut adapter you will want to use part # P820175. Just attach these adapters to the front of your toolbox, cut down your rails, and mount the rails to the adapters. I have included installation instructions for these parts for you to check out.

  • How to Finding Center Point of Front Bumper Fascia on 2013 Ford F-150 STX for Hitch Installation
  • The installation instructions for the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31068 are linked for you at right and these include in step one a diagram of the lower plastic bumper fascia trimming required.

Use a measuring tape to find the center point on the fascia.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for a 2013 Ford F-150 with Eco-Boost
  • The High Performance Reese SC weight distribution system you referenced # RP66153, would work just fine with your 28 foot travel trailer that has a dry weight of 6,000 pounds. It has a tongue weight capacity of 400-800 pounds and a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. One of the most important factors to consider when picking out a weight distribution system is the tongue weight of the setup. A nice included feature on the Reese weight distribution system # RP66153 is the sway control...

  • Tilting Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F-150 that Allows Tailgate to Open
  • Most likely yes, but since we haven't had the chance to test the Swagman Bike Rack part # S64960 on a 2013 Ford F-150 like yours it's hard to say for certain.

We had a chance to test fit this rack on a 2013 F150 just like yours and found that the tailgate could open when tilted. Check out the video link I attached to right to see for yourself. If...

  • Suspension enhancement like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2525 would be a great choice for you. This will give you support for the rear suspension of your vehicle so that it feels less spongey with and without a trailer. Since the air pressure is adjustable you would be able to adjust the amount of support you need by inflating or deflating the bags when needed. To make that easier you could get a compressor kit like part # F2158. I attached install videos for both...
