So you enjoyed the adaptive cruise but did you try the intelligent mode with the speed tolerance? I use that all the time. It is so nice to get to a town and have the truck automatically slow down to the posted speed.
It is kind of frustrating when it sees the 45mph sign on the frontage road...
On January 31st I got a message in my Ford app stating there was a Service Engine Soon Warning for "The powertrain control system has detected a software error with the vehicle option configuration". This is accompanied by a code P160A-00 "Control Module Vehicle Options Reconfiguration Error"...
Oh I also just had to take the front right caliper off and scrape 15 or 20 pieces of gravel out. It was making awful noises. Even though this truck has the FX4 package it doesn't seem like they planned for people to off road it. I guess I will be testing the limits repeatedly.
During the heavy rain a couple days ago I parked a little off the driveway to get something past the truck. Needless to say it sunk in the mud. Luckily in mud and ruts nice I was able to get out without hitting anything. I did apparently catch the fiber under cover on something and ripped it at...
Sorry to say it, but looks like you got stuck with a dealer mark-up. You can get this one at Cabelas for $259.99.
But maybe it is lower in price because the pictures show it as a Lariat Platinum version.
Even though it is the 4x4 instead of Fx4 it apparently still has good off-road...
I find both ways are fun in different situations. If you want to get a little loose, put it in sport, hit 2H and turn off traction control. If you want acceleration, put it in sport leave 4A and debate on Traction control or not.
I have the 3 inch Rough Country lift with 33" tires. When on dirt road with small wash board the back axle can completely loose connection with the road at 50mph. Then when you take turns it will slide out in the back. It makes it very inconsistent and dangerous feeling.
Nice looking truck. Fellow Leadfoot here with the PB onboard and the trailer option.
My truck is modified so I have to think about it the entire time to get above 20 mph. But when I am in sport mode the truck sure is a lot of fun to drive.
I have the Rough Country lift and 33 inch tires...
You could just think of it as getting 430 hp with the PowerBoost instead of the 386 hp of the ecoboost.
I have the powerboost with the 3 inch Rough Country lift. I have 33 inch tires but the wheels are offset out so they rub in reverse at full lock.
I designed and 3D printed a pull handle for mine the other day.
That handle looks good, but how in the world do you get the seat unlocked without it? I can't get my hand anywhere close to anything back there to unlatch.
Has any one else had the intrusion detection system go off because you got a flying bug in the truck.
We are camping this weekend and when we got back to the campground and we're unloading the truck a bug flew in. I tried to get it but gave up and didn't think anything else about it. Then...
Another option that might help you is to renter different types on rvshare.com or outdoorsy.com then you can try different types out and see what features you need and what you don't and most importantly want size is right for your needs.
