    2020 Raptor Order

    No....No....and NO again. This truck is truly going off-road. I didn't want the extra weight, nor the loss of cabin rigidity. Already looking at adding the various back frame and bed supports by RPG and others. The simple fact that they leak and rattle all the time wasn't even a concern...

    Halogen vs LED OEM headlights? 13th gen owner input?

    Found this extensive comparison video on YouTube between the Morimoto and the Alpha Rex NOVA. Alpha Rex for the win in this particular comparison. What you can't know obviously is to what level both sets of headlights can be adjusted to correct their shortcomings, and how they might actually...

    2020 Raptor Order

    With all of the uncertainty surrounding the 2021 Raptor, I decided to pull the trigger on a '20. While we've already passed the cutoff date to submit custom orders for the '20s, my local dealer was able to get into the system and modify the order of a truck that they'd submitted just before the...

    2022 Raptor F-150 Likely (2021 Model Year In Doubt)

    Just got a VIN # assigned to my 2020 Raptor. Build date July 24. Deal closed. Just not ready to deal with the potential delays and unknowns surrounding the '21 Raptor.

    Digital Gauges / Instrument Cluster Display in Action (2021 F-150) [Video]

    <lol> 5 POINT 1 (5.1) mph while rock crawling would be aggressive in many cases.

    Halogen vs LED OEM headlights? 13th gen owner input?

    So, in researching the strengths and weaknesses of the 13th generation of F-150's (2015-2020), I've read over and over how horrible Ford's OEM headlights are with regards to light intensity and beam pattern. I haven't been able to confirm for myself if this perceived weakness is limited to just...

    Trailer tow mirrors with BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) vs Standard Mirrors

    Trailer tow mirrors for the win, hands down. Will actually be trying to add these to the Raptor when it comes in.

    Digital Gauges / Instrument Cluster Display in Action (2021 F-150) [Video]

    Well, if you want me to get all technical... With the 40 degree incline (pitch) that the gauge is showing, coupled with the 19 degree roll also being indicated, you would need to steer right (into the roll or up the grade if you prefer) in order to track a straight line across any surface, in...

    Onboard Generator (Pro Power Onboard) - Specs & 5 Fun Facts

    I would imagine that you'd have plenty of power for that. Just note how long they said the truck could actually run on a full tank of gas pulling that full load however. You'll be burning through a lot of gas, though in all honesty, all generators burn through a lot of gas if you run them...

    Reclining rear seats?

    There isn't much room between the seat back and the rear wall of the cab. IF they can recline at all, it won't be much, and I doubt that.

    Onboard Generator (Pro Power Onboard) - Specs & 5 Fun Facts

    That depends on what you're trying to run, specifically, the AC unit is going to be the biggest single current draw in most houses. I run a 10 kW (12 kW Surge) Generac to power my house when the power goes out. I have a 5 ton AC unit. When it kicks on, my Receiver kicks off (receiver provides...

    2021 F-150 order guide?

    They aren't retooling now. Retooling is a much shorter period of time that you might suspect these days. With '21 production beginning on 12 October, they'll probably build '20s right up to the end of September.

    2021 F-150 Grilles (All 11 Unique Grills) Comparison

    I count 5 different grille options, excluding simple color changes of the outer surround, cross-bar or insert. XL, XL Chrome, XLT, XLT Chrome, XLT Sport are the same aside from a color change on one of the three grille segments. Same surround, same cross-bar, same insert, only the colors...

    Semi let down at the reveal

    Did anyone else note in the pictures that all of those grill options that they spent so much time discussing during the reveal are really just a couple of grill options with either black or chrome coloring on the various inserts ? Probably actually fewer real grill options than in previous...

    2021 F150 Towing Capacity and Payload

    Most of the discussion regarding towing now is touching upon the fact that the tow numbers are already so high that you're towing more than 2x what the truck its self ways. To do much better, safely, you're going to be forced into a super duty just to have a heavier, more stable tow platform...

    Ford Confirms 2021 F-150 Raptor Is Coming!

    If the dealer can get me the '20 that they already have in the system, get it configured the way I want it, I'm going to carry on and close that deal rather than wait to see what comes next. I've been waiting to see what comes next for too damn many years already.

    2022 Raptor F-150 Likely (2021 Model Year In Doubt)

    Ok, where to begin... I just spent the past 2 hours sitting across the table from one of the sales managers at my local Ford dealer, discussing the 2021 Reveal and 2021 Raptor. As we all know, nothing at all was mentioned about the Raptor during the Reveal, and after a 2 hour conversation with...
