  1. PMAS cold air intake install

    I'm not trying to take a stand either way on aftermarket mods. But if anyone thinks that a 2% variance on a sample of 1 with the test run 1 times means something, then they do not understand engineering and design or verification. Minimum, run before and after tests multiple times on each of...
  2. Payload #'s

    Times are changing. Look into the growth of factory and aftermarket Solar Panels and Lithium Batteries for RVs, people are spending big bucks to not have to find a power pedestal. RV'ng west of the Mississippi you have at least a night on the road coming and going (more likely 2 or 3), just...
  3. Payload #'s

    Completely agree with the rest of your response. But on the first paragraph (above), is where I think FORD missed the boat. The PB EPA rating does the most ever for bringing them up to meet CAFE when selling F150. So more PB the better for them (at 24 mpg). So give us the payload and market as...
  4. 2 Weeks to fix Windshield Recall???

    My experience on my 2015 F150 (still waiting for my 2021 sitting in a Detroit parking lot for 2 months), on a recall (the master brake cylinder one), is that my local (large) Dealer/Service has NO loaners, as they usually put a number of XLs into loaner service and sell them used the next year...
  5. Payload #'s

    I agree with you that expecting to tow (in all conditions: altitude, grade, crosswind) right at the tow limit is a recipe for potential disaster. But I'm talking barely able to "legally" tow 50% of the tow rating. I also understand the typical answer is move up to SuperDuty, which of course...
  6. How to temporarily disable Auto-Hold

    So when you are stopped at a red traffic light on a busy highway, you can remove your foot from the brake pedal and the brakes stay applied (i.e. Auto-hold)? If so do the brake lights stay on by themselves, so approaching traffic knows you are stopped with your brakes applied, even though your...
  7. Active Air Dam Issue

    Since a number of different people are reporting (and the pics look similar), my guess is something to do with the tie-downs during rail or truck transport, or the ramps to get vehicles into place on the rail or truck transport marginally violate the approach angle max, on some of the transport...
  8. Payload #'s

    Yes, that chart was put together by someone working hard from data he could gather. I'm basing my statement on the actual Ford spec publication. Page 34 of the 2021 F-150 Weights & Specs document. However that post may be correct, as it's hard to tell whether PB automatically get the HPP frame...
  9. Payload #'s

    Your point? No one, including Ford, markets them as "1/2 ton". And if 1000 lb was the payload, then even with a single 200lb driver the trailer would be limited to 5300 to 8000lb (15 to 10% tongue weight). Yet they market the F150 as "up to 14,000lbs". But that was not even my point. Ford knows...
  10. Payload #'s

    There has been some previous "post your payload sticker" threads, but always good to revisit, as I believe Ford is making a major mistake, particularly with the PowerBoost models. F-150 max GVWR is 7850 on those special configs (Long Bed) and XL/XLT, with the HDPP. You can't get PB on those...
  11. 5/3 Build Week Club

    Apologies in advance....as this is May the Fourth... be with you. Oh Padawan, you have so much to learn about the dark side of the For(d)ce! Sorry ;-) , but yes Window Sticker is good, assume you got it from Shop.Ford site, and can now do like the rest of us and refresh twice a day seeing if...
  12. Current Pricing in this climate?

    Think we have the same: KR, 6.5', PB with every option (including stuff like Tow Mirrors, and Rapid Red paint charge, spray in, retractable tonneau, etc, only thing I didn't get is the engine heater), MSRPs at $80.395k. X-plan (basically the same as invoice) is $74.9k. So you did good! If you...
  13. Tow Package Breakdown For 2021 F-150

    The numbers I was quoting was from the 44 page "2021 F-150 Weights & Specs" from the section "Actual Regular Production Option Content Weight". It literally list everything, like the power adjustable brake and gas pedals are 7lbs.
  14. Guide to reading the Ford F-150 Vehicle Order Tracking website

    palsapp.com should tell you some of the transit status.
  15. Power Running Boards "Out" Setting Not Working

    All of the power running boards controls/settings are for when the truck is stopped. Think of OFF more as Clean (i.e. in a position so you can clean them). They will retract when moving... why?..... because they tend to stick out further and down lower than regular running boards, and if it hit...
  16. Tow Package Breakdown For 2021 F-150

    Small point, but I keep seeing people referencing the Moonroof as a 200lb adder. The Ford specs has it at 64lbs. Basically 33lb on front axle and 33lb on rear axle. Not sure where the 200lb number is coming from. Think about it, there wasn't a hole there, there was a metal roof. For the...
  17. 20" Tires for Towing???

    So the 18" and the 20" refer to the wheel diameter (wheel is the metal part, some call them rims). You could put a really "tall" tire on an 18" and a really short one on the 20" (and vice versa). In general there is a certain total diameter of the wheel plus tire (tire is the rubber part). And...
  18. F-150 Adds Class-Exclusive Payload Estimation, Trailer Towing and Smart Suspension Damping Features

    Anyone know/speculate the underlying tech and manufacturers? For both the weight (scales) tech and the suspension damping.
  19. Box Plate?

    In theory it's a "universal" mount, as far as I know Ford only has the cleats, and also the bed divider uses it. Other products (sometimes called etrack) are straps, lumber divider holders, etc.
  20. Report from using 7.2kw ProPower generator at campsite without shore power

    One question I have, don't think I have seen it answered elsewhere. Can you remotely (i.e. while in bed in the RV) with the Ford Pass app start the generator mode? Scenario, I'm thinking of, is boondocking. Have RV fitted up with good lithium batteries and solar for recharge during the day...
