  1. Prototype Raptor Grille at Night

    I know this was time/labor intensive and I think it paid off. It looks really good and is unique, currently, on a 2021. I read that the engineers/designers were very intentional about styling the front end of the new Raptor (and if I am not mistaken, the Tremor) in such a way as to virtually...
  2. Has production started for V6 Diesel F-150 for 2021?

    Yes, there is at least one, likely more, members here who have their 2021 Powerstroke trucks already. I don't know when they started production on the diesel, but I think @Ford 3.0 Diesel took delivery pretty recently.
  3. Electric F-150 Prototype Caught With Large Mach-E-Style Infotainment Screen

    I'm not going to speak for the PB guys, but this PB owner likes the screen in my current truck and would prefer that they stick with that. I like the tech of the touch screen, but I also like physical buttons. The 2021 has a good mix of both. They can say what they want, I don't think Ford is...
  4. Lariat Sport 502A, 2" Level, 285/65 R20 KO2s + Mods

    To back up what @SuperClyde said above, I am also running 285/65-20's on my truck. I have no rubbing issues, I did not have to trim anything, and lights/camera's/proximity sensors all work properly. My Yokohama's are on the bigger side for a 285/65 at 34.8" x 11.6". BFG A/T KO2 runs 34.5" x...
  5. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    I think you are spot on, to tell the truth. I didn't want to come across as bitchin' about the mileage. I expected it to take some time to get to the mileage numbers I think it can do (even with the level and tires). I think it could be 3,500 before the truck shows its true colors. I just wanted...
  6. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    Yes, I have a 2" level and 285/65-20's on the truck. I expected to a loss in mpg with that setup, for certain. I don't think the truck is done giving me better MPG, but only time will tell. The first tank was, again, almost exclusively run on the interstate. I picked it up, drove it 45 minutes...
  7. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    Tell me about it. I am going to keep tracking it and see if I see improvement over the next few tanks. When the dealer rep walked me through the truck, he made sure to warn me that it would not get the stated mpg's until the truck was broken in. The owners manual says the same. I am just over...
  8. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    The drive mode thing should be set it and forget it. At the very least, it should prompt you, without fail, when you start the truck, asking if you want to return to "insert mode". I use Eco Mode 90% of the time (the other 10% I forget about it) and I think in 1,200 miles and over 100 start ups...
  9. Input on Trim Decision, please? (Lariat v Platinum)

    As a side note before I talk trucks, the iPhone 12 has issues (according to my conversation with Verizon and Gear4) with wireless charging through a case and sometimes without. If yours works well everywhere else, your ahead of the game. Back to trucks,: I'm biased, I suppose, because I bought...
  10. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    I have been driving my truck in Eco Mode approximately 90% of the time. I don't always remember to select it and it doesn't always prompt me to either. But, I am trying to maximize as best I can to see what I can get it to do. I am easy on the throttle and tap the breaks on downhills to get it...
  11. Down payment for ordering?

    My dealer asked for $1,000 and gave me back the deposit check when I picked up my truck. As @BLoflin said above, it typically goes in the sale folder and is never touched again until you are there to pick up the truck. At this point, I would think any dealer would take an order without taking...
  12. Fred beans in pa

    My suggestion, go onto the Ford site and build the exact truck you are looking for. Submit it to 3 or 4 dealers in your area and see who comes back with the best price. I don't know beans about Fred Beans, but I think you will find that some dealers want MSRP, others want Invoice, and there may...
  13. Why are dealrs quoting base price $500 more than Ford web site says?

    Finally got to the answer. Ford raised the price of the truck by $500 and it is not reflected on the Ford Website. Below is a window sticker from a Lariat that is currently for sale at a local dealer. The new base price of the Lariat 4x4 is $50,980.
  14. Is this a good deal?? X Plan! W Window sticker - Lariat 5.0 Sport Pretty loaded

    I did some digging and it is up to you if you want to challenge the dealer on the fees. It seems odd they would charge a Doc Fee and then tack on additional charges for each doc (basically) they process. Anyway, read the links for yourself and make your own determination. Dealer's Inventory...
  15. Is this a good deal?? X Plan! W Window sticker - Lariat 5.0 Sport Pretty loaded

    Here on the Ark (Arkansas) I paid $129 for the doc fee and $180 to the state for all the registration fees. That included the new $100 hybrid registration fee they now impose. Remember when you got a tax break for buying a Hybrid? Now they tack on an additional $100 per year for the pleasure of...
  16. Why are dealrs quoting base price $500 more than Ford web site says?

    What is the exact specs you went with? I have not been able to find a SuperCrew 5.5' bed, 4X4 for $50,480. Before adding the 5.0L the Ford site shows an XLT is $46,145 and a Lariat is $52,820. Love to try to help. Have you asked the dealers to send you the quote. You should be able to match up...
  17. SMOKED QUARTZ F-150 (2021+) Club

    Gratuitous SQ photo...just can’t help myself. My dealer said he sold 3 trucks based on buyers seeing mine in the delivery vestibule. I believe him! Love this truck!
  18. Parks Ford of Wesley Chapel (Florida)

    I do not know anything about this dealership, however, I do have experience buying a vehicle in Florida as an out of state customer. The law may have changed since 2017, but Florida law required out of state buyers to pay taxes in Florida on the purchase of a vehicle if that vehicle is driven...
  19. Is this a good deal?? X Plan! W Window sticker - Lariat 5.0 Sport Pretty loaded

    I appears that you have been quoted at or near invoice, which is a pretty solid deal, especially as stingy as some dealers have become with limited inventory. What made me recoil is all the fees. Holy moly!
  20. Motorweek to show off 2021 F-150

    I agree with @texag, I don't think you can make any claims about the luxury aspect when you are testing the XLT. Nothing wrong with the XLT, certainly not a slight, but my assumption is that John Davis is not referring to a comparably equipped Ram (Tradesman or Big Horn). Apples to apples, I...
