  1. Trying to find the light at the end of my tonneau search

    I have done it twice in using them on six pickups. It isn’t really designed for regular removal. It can be done but becomes fragile when off, requires two people to put on, take off, or move around. Only takes five minutes because all adjustments remain in place. There are drain tubes that go...
  2. What’s the biggest tow behind camper you would pull with your F150?

    The factory tire are not actual truck tires. They are optimized for mileage, not heavy use. For real towing, you need a high-ply, heavier, real truck tire. My OEM tire had less than 100 miles when I swapped them out. Also lost about 2 mpg - but THATs the trade off for real capability vs...
  3. What’s the biggest tow behind camper you would pull with your F150?

    I traded the truck in July for the new Lightning, but the system was great, did a lot of towing. I had an equalizing hitch, so it wa likely overkill, but did guarantee level, stable ride all the time no matter what was back there. With full payload, I would use up to 40 psi (with the car...
  4. Severely mistreated, criminally insulted, completely frustrated- an update to my saga

    I had many of the same issues - similar script - multiple service trips, Job 1 PowerBoost in the shop for two months, updates never stuck or operated correctly. The Ford customer care rep also suggested initiating a buyback and I was close to doing so in July when my new Lighting came in. The...
  5. So when does the big dump begin?

    This is one of the more absurd threads ever on a forum. I just traded my 12,500-mile 2021 PowerBoost King ranch F-150 two weeks ago for my 2022 Platinum Lightning. Paid MSRP for the Lightning and received $2k more than I paid for the '21 PowerBoost from the original selling dealer ($69k trade...
  6. So when does the big dump begin?

    Then you don't know me and LOTS of Tesla owners who hate the direct-to-consumer model. My Tesla sales and service experience (4x) has been dismal, much prefer the dealer model where you can actually work with a human, both in sales in service. Direct-to-consumer? No one there. Ever. By...
  7. Blue Cruise Not allowing hands free

    If I tell them that they'll know what it means? Or should I just let them buy the truck back? My Lightning Platinum was built last week...
  8. Blue Cruise Not allowing hands free

    Ford initiated a buyback on my Project One truck today after six+ weeks in two separate dealerships that tried module updates, no success. VIN 1FTFW1ED6MFB43838
  9. Upgrading to Blue Cruise & First Major Road Trip w/ Blue Cruise

    My truck has been at two Ford dealers who attempted to get Blue Cruise updates downloaded without success, one in Delray Beach for a month, with huge amounts of Ford tech support, and then two weeks at the Ford dealer in Melfa, Virginia, also with Ford tech support. It is also a Project One...
  10. Dealership is unable to activate Blue Crusie

    Same issue here. My truck has been at the dealer for ten days and counting. I can see that they are working on it, but today they called and said there is a software download problem, the tech is working with Ford to resolve, may be another week.
  11. Bluecruise OTA Status?

    My truck is at Grieco in Delray Beach now for the BC install. It was built May 7, 2021 in Dearborn. They say it is an 11-hour job, with at least eight module updates, maybe more. They have a specialist "expert" trained in using the FDRS system. They have asked me to leave the truck there for...
  12. Lariat Power Running Boards

    Power running boards are no longer a 2022 option. If you want the credit, must delete. I just did so on my Platinum today.
  13. Could a Platinum (or Limited) be Ordered without Power Running Boards?

    I've had fixed and moving. Power running boards are the best feature I've ever had, right up there with tailgate bed step because they put the step right where you can actually use it, and get out of the way when you don't want it. But you can remove them easily and replace with trouser...
  14. Will max towing option improve Lightning's range?

    You can now add power running boards as an option on the Lightning. I had my dealer do it last week. This may delay delivery.
  15. How do you plan on charging your lightning

    You make an excellent point. Many people try to "force" solar because they want it for reasons other than the true numbers. Emotional and green objectives aside, half the homes in the U.S. have improperly oriented roofs for solar (east/west, or northerly exposures), or are shaded part of the...
  16. Study Finds Greater Greenhouse Gas Reductions For EV Pickup Trucks Than Light-Duty Vehicles

    100% correct. But that's not the point. You MAKE my point. Solar generation and EV driving are two, separate and completely unrelated things. People with both (like myself) have a tendency to pontificate and self-congratulate, feel all smug about their carbon footprints. When in that mode...
  17. Study Finds Greater Greenhouse Gas Reductions For EV Pickup Trucks Than Light-Duty Vehicles

    Are you serious? Have you paid, like zero attention to Dem party objectives and position statements in recent years? It is a gradual process, not overnight, but it is assuredly the objective of the left. And it is killing this country. From the first link: "Biden has set a goal of...
  18. Study Finds Greater Greenhouse Gas Reductions For EV Pickup Trucks Than Light-Duty Vehicles

    Semantics and self-congratulatory rationalization and confirmation bias. I'm sure you tell yourself, friends and family that you charge your EV with your solar panels. I have my solar panels and EVs and choose to not lie to myself and others. I also understand and teach economics and have VERY...
