  1. Alternative “carrying capacity” options to Canopy topper

    Now that I have a tonneau cover, the next mission begins: racks and extra volume for larger trips. I recognize that a topper with rack above will solve this. But …I just have a mental block about having a topper on ALL THE TIME. I foresee I would use the rack (for paddleboards) weekly when the...
  2. Adarac bed rack feedback/comments?

    My next mod is to add a rack system. Like tonneau covers, its quite the rabbit hole! I have a Tonnopro roll-up cover (inside-rail system) which I've researched SHOULD not interfere with stake-pocket systems like the Adarac. I plan on getting a full-height set of racks (for SUP, kayaks...
  3. BuiltRight rear seat latch

    Super easy mod and one I was looking forward to. Easy to order and deliver to Canada. If I didn’t stop to take pictures, would have probably taken 5 minutes to install. As others have said, re-latching was a bear. I almost blamed Buiktright but obviously their device doesn’t affect anything...
  4. First truck EVER - 22 XLT 5.0L

    So! After over 2 yrs of searching, researching, asking questions, used vs new, Silverado vs F150, I made the commitment: flew an hour out to Vernon BC to pick up a new truck from Watkins Motors. (Who is apparently the oldest ford dealership in Canada). Overall experience was good - at this...
  5. Easily removeable rack options

    Looking at a few options for rack/tonneau/softopper. I foresee that I'll LIKELY only need a rack one day a week and only need a softopper (with and without rack above) a few times a year. The rest of the time I'd prefer the rack off. Will likely keep the tonneau cover on all the time that...
  6. Autotrader price scores

    Not sure where to put this thread but here goes… Ive put my goal of “new vehicle”on pause (for variety of reasons) and have been looking at used cars. In Canada, autotrader seems to capture a pretty broad market (new car dealers, used car dealers, private sales) but I’m curious how the “cost...
  7. BC Ford dealers

    Given the prices of an F150, I’m more than happy to venture off-island. I’ve been chatting with Prince George Ford so far, but shot-in-the-dark request to see if there are other BC dealers that are recommended? And has anyone bought from one province to bring to another? thanks!
  8. Canada vs US build options/differences

    Since Ford.ca has severely limited their "Build Your F150" website (to really only the major option, trim, and engines, plus some minor things), I've been dabbling with the US site so I can see what goes with what, what's incompatible, and rough $'s. Does anyone know of a link/info on...
  9. F150 vs Silverado/Sierra

    I've been spending quite a bit of time researching F150's and am pretty sure I'll (eventually...!) go for one ($ & availability pending, lol). Likely it would be a 4x4, SCREW, 5.5 bed, XLT-level, likely the 2.7L or MAYBE the Powerboost (mostly because I have an illogical dream of boondocking...
  10. Ford.ca “build your own” website changed?

    I went back to try out a few different options on a build and a whole slew of option/packages are no longer showing up. Like, under Packages, you just get the 2-3 choices for options; no off-road, towing, appearance options show up. Some Exterior options remain (wheels and tires, but a lot of...
  11. New vs Used vs SUV

    Hi all, Fairly new to this forum and trucks in general. Talk about drinking from a fire hose (my last vehicle was a 2010 Sienna whose sliding doors are now manual and also have a used 2004 Honda Element in 2006 whose locks no longer work, to put things in perspective). I realize a “Gen14” forum...
  12. Giving up on a LIGHTNING order

    I jumped on the reservations as soon as I first saw them available (in Canada) and got the call a couple weeks ago that they’d start taking orders. But after some soul-searching and honest questions to myself/family, I’ve decided to pass on this opportunity so thought I’d share my thought...
