I'd argue that it's priced based on an insurance ri$k assessment.
So if they designed it to be exactly what you describe, it'd just cost more to reflect it.
Or put another way, the price for their 10 year ESP coverage is very likely how much a 7 year extended warranty that you describe would...
First I've ever heard of an oem F150 described as riding like a stiffly suspended SuperDuty.
I've always felt they come way underdamped, even for a fairly lightly sprung truck.
Aftermarket shocks are the lowest hanging fruit for an F150 ride, in my opinion.
Just goes to show how subjective...
I have to backup about a 100 yards when I'm leaving the tiny house.
This feature now requires me to keep mother nature pruned much better than in the past. :)
I keep a pair of hedge clippers in the SideXside these days so that when I check the mail or fetch from the delivery box up front, I...
I am slow and deliberate with the console shifter. It's now a habit to be so.
I remember the first time I ever used it I didn't get the feeling that it was robust and could take much abuse.
So I can teach an old dog new tricks. :)
I'm 65 years old.
I have a 2 post lift in my barn.
I didn't even go through the effort to use the lift.
Admittedly my belly had me entering either behind the axle or in front of it, as I attached everything. (loosely, before tightening everything down)
I am not able to easily slide under...
Takes 2 minutes.
It doesn't hurt anything.
Just pretend that you have analog adjustable shocks and you got out and dialed them all to firmest setting. Because unplugging one of these electric ones is doing just that!
Yes. I unplugged the driver's side rear shock. And just as the service manual described, the system defaults all 4 shocks to maximum damping.
It would be similar to having analog adjustable shocks and dialing them to max. Although, in my opinion, my Fox 2.5 DSC setup on my 2018 F150, when...
I have a FANTASTIC relationship with a few people at a particular dealership. So much so that I have purchased my Fords from them for just short of a quarter of a century.
But the service department?
I don't trust them one bit.
They lied straight to my face once just to sell me an air filter.
Lots of threads regarding adding in the feature(s) for either trucks that came without, or trucks that had factory deletes.
So you don't have Adaptive Cruise Control? Although Ford leverages many of the various modules to support multiple features, that radar sensor primarily is what enables...
You must know how I feel about that.
It's absolutely ridiculous.
It's making up rules that impede the ability to provide customer service without ANY logical or defendable reasoning.
It's nothing short of arrogance and abuse of imagined authority.
They wonder why the relationship is...
A bit confusing:
The system is designed to help reduce the impact speed by
preparing the brakes for rapid braking. The system does not automatically apply the brakes. If you press the brake pedal, the system could apply additional braking up
to maximum braking force, even if you...
