  1. SMOKED QUARTZ F-150 (2021+) Club

    @allJUMPstyle - Just be thankful that the last leg of your trip (mine was 16 hours), when you were the most tired, wasn’t through New Jersey and New York City! Worst drivers in North America … and I’m from Massachusetts!
  2. SMOKED QUARTZ F-150 (2021+) Club

    I applied a ceramic coat on my SQ Powerboost after taking delivery in the summer. Last month, I added a topcoat sealant as a sacrificial layer in preparation for the coming winter snow and salt here in New England. After I’d finished, my neighbor came by with his black lab who started barking...
  3. SMOKED QUARTZ F-150 (2021+) Club

    Same here! I had intended to get mine in AMB but once I saw the SQ live, there was no question in my mind.
  4. SMOKED QUARTZ F-150 (2021+) Club

    That’s more than 400 miles more than I drove back home to Boston after picking it up in Charlotte!
  5. 2021 Leadfoot PowerBoost Lifted on 34s

    @Joe T - Is your rig a Powerboost?
  6. Texas KO2's 275/60/20

    @adder1221 - These look DRAMATICALLY better than the stock tires. I am thinking of getting KO2’s as well. A couple of questions: Q1: What is your opinion on noise and ride quality? Q2: Aren’t 275/60R20’s the same size as the stock tires? (These look bigger!) Q3: What size level did you...
  7. 2021 Lariat 2.5” Leveled

    I like the look of these 35’s (I like to round up)! Hi
  8. Oil changes (3.5L EcoBoost) - first change and subsequent intervals?

    @jmacd - I am with you. I changed my oily to full synthetic at 5,000 miles and will continue to do so at that interval despite the longer recommendations.
  9. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    @Josh35 - There’s a bit of a trick to it, in my experience anyway. After cresting a hill and getting up to speed, I tap the brake (as long as no one is behind me) and coast for 1-2 seconds. Realizing that there is very little power required, the ICE shuts off and the truck goes full electric...
  10. 8/2 Build Week

    @Fquinn47 - I applied a ceramic coating (Carpro cQuartz UK 3.0) when I got my truck back at the beginning of June. Yesterday, in prep for the winter, I completed a wheels-off cleaning and applied a heat-resistant ceramic coating (Carpro DLUX) to the wheels, the calipers, and all exterior...
  11. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    That mileage is pretty low. Am I correct to assume that you're pulling a trailer much of the time?
  12. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    Apologies; I was only teasing. I have noticed my mileage improve since the break-in period, perhaps 0.5-1.0 mpg. You're right, that mileage generally goes down as the weather cools. 'Sorry you're not getting the mileage that you expected. I drove a couple of tankfulls without trying to...
  13. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    You’re only getting 19? Is that in Gallons per Mile or Kilometers per Litre? ;-)
  14. Anyone get a problem free 2021 F-150?

    @Diceman - I think it’s probably the nature of this type of Forum. Pre-availability, lots os speculation and excitement. Then a shift to customers boasting about various improvements and mods. Finally, most remaining posters are motivated because they have something to gripe about. As...
  15. Crew Cab - 5.5 vs 6.5 box resale value

    First, I agree with diesel97. But what you want - especially since these trucks are so expensive! The longer bed is more versatile, no question, but it won’t fit into many garages. It’s a toss-up.
  16. WiFi Hot Spot Hack for always on?

    Yes! That’s the reason those folks in Texas were able to power their homes during last winter’s massive power outages. I used it on Saturday to program my coffee maker set it to brew espresso shots for my softball team between morning playoff games. It was on for ~2 hours with tailgate and...
  17. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    @ricko24 - That is very good. I've also noticed that my mileage has improved a bit over time (about 6,500 miles to date). I've filled my tank about 10 times, now. For my last fill-up, I decided to try to drive in Eco Mode and keep my speed down to see what kind of range I would get on a...
  18. The problem with long distance purchasing

    @Jloyd98 - ‘Sorry to hear this. I fears this might happen so I cancelled my own order back in May. (Truck had already sat 2 months with many to go). I went on a broad search and found a pre-delivery F-150 in my preferred spec and color (Platinum Crewcab Powerboost in SQ, Special Black...
  19. Cowl Discoloration

    @ RogueProeliator - This sounds like an interesting solution to faded black plastic. That you’ve personally done so, says a lot. I’ll take note and file it away for future reference. Intrigued! In this situation, we’re not trying to address UV fading. Many of us found white marks on the...
