I did mostly the same things I did on my 2015 F-150.

* Disabled startup chimes
* Disabled double-horn honk when leaving with truck still running
* Disabled chimes - vehicle running with door open
* Changed tire circumference to fix slight speed offset due to wheel size difference
* Changed battery target state of charge from 80% to 95%
* Disabled all the seat belt minders
* Enabled engine/transmission temperature numbers above sweep gauges

I still want to change from 3 blinker activations when temporarily moving the turn signal to 7 activations, but I haven't found an option for that yet.

I changed mine to six flashes. I did mine via the Hexidecimal as-built method. Looking into this again (F-150 forums), looks like you can do it through the comfort mode.

Will any of this work on 2013 XLT? My wish list:

1) Change behavior of instrument cluster lighting to default on when engine started regardless of headlight setting.

2) Enable PRNDL feature in instrument cluster as with column shift fleet models. I have the console shift and would like to be able to see what gear I am in without going by feel or looking down at the shifter.

3) Default rear air on with main AC switched on.

4) Enable folding mirrors? The switch has the position, yet no folding mirror action. Dont know if the motors are installed.

Bambi Mode, (my Plat already had high/low beams factory set to on in high beam mode. Now all 3 are on)
Auto Start/Stop disabled <---- Update: Auto Start/Stop Disable automatically reset itself after about 2 days.
Increased turn signal change lane flashes to 5
Added temps on engine and transmission gauges
changed traction control default from on to off
added seat a/c and heat to home screen
Added distance warning system in bottom center of info screen.
Set parking lights with halos for running lights, but did not like it so turned it off.
Changed screen logo to Performance just for fun
A few mods are defaulted on my model, so I left them alone, even though they showed off.

Yep. But this "needless" thread has revealed several changes I was unaware of! I doubt I'll mess with them even if they're available on my 2017. I got the items I wanted

Wanted and changed:
1. Set the LED fog lights to run as DRLs.
2. Leave the fog lights on with the high beams (Bambi mode).

Fluff:
Engine hours on dash.
5 flashes on lane change.

I'd like several of Big's changes and several of Joe's wish list. :)
