  1. Powerboost Overheated while Towing

    I've had my 21' Lariat PB now for just over 6 months. I haven't towed too much with it yet, but I have pulled a couple of different things. First was my 23' 14k tilt deck trailer hauling my T770 Bobcat. 12,000+ pounds. Pulled it on short (10-15 mile) runs around the farm in the late fall...
  2. No electric Super Duty Lightning in Ford's current plans

    I have little doubt that, at some point, there will be an EV version of everything that Ford currently offers. But...it won't all happen overnight. Charging Infrastructure/tech, battery tech...we just aren't there yet to just flip a switch and have everything jump to EV's. Granted...
  3. Weird Random Sync/iPhone Behaviour.

    Has anyone had something like this happen to them? Every once in awhile, I'll start up my truck and plug in my phone with one of the USB-C ports. At that time, sometimes completely randomly, the Sync system will switch from playing the regular radio to run the iHeart Radio app on my iphone...
  4. Powerboost obsession

    That makes sense. I've heard of people that had issues with Tesla's actually losing their charge overnight in very cold temps even while plugged in on the "slow" 110v charging.
  5. Powerboost obsession

    I was pushing low 23's until the temps dropped. Now I'm closer to about 20 mpg. Driving to work each day taking the same route...strangely, my PB isn't going into EV mode as much as it did when it was still a bit warmer. It is roughly a 24 mile trip one way, and before it started cooling off...
  6. How quiet is the cabin?

    My 502A, under normal driving conditions, is so quiet I can't honestly tell you if the engine is on or if the truck is running on electric only unless I watch the tachometer. I do not have a moon roof though. I'll never have one of those again after the last truck. Over 2k to replace the...
  7. New Chargers Can Fully Charge the Lightning in 15 Minutes?

    I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure if the battery in the lightning doesn't support whatever system this is that charges in 15 minutes...it just won't charge that fast. I have been seeing news clips about newer battery tech (solid state, iron battery's instead of lithium) that will allow...
  8. Anyone get a problem free 2021 F-150?

    Yes, I know this. What I should have said is "Sometimes when I press the brake petal and hit the start button, it only goes into accessory mode until I hit the brake petal and press the button again."
  9. Anyone get a problem free 2021 F-150?

    FX4 Lariat Powerboost, ordered March 1st, finally got it July 22nd. Sitting on about 2500 miles so far and about the only gripe I have so far is that sometimes when I "start" the truck with the push button... it only goes into accessory mode until I hit the brake petal and press the start...
  10. Weak center console armrest spring?

    Thanks. I searched for the center console, but I guess I should have searched for the actual armrest instead.
  11. Weak center console armrest spring?

    Does anyone else have a center console that doesn’t keep the armrest up when you open it? When I open mine, it drops almost all the way back down to an inch or two from closing. This is a non-workspace armrest, if that matters.
  12. It’s HOT OUT! Battery powered A/C!

    I had someone that wanted to go for a ride to see what all the fuss is about this “hi-bred” truck. We both jump in and he immediately starts saying “get this thing started and crank that AC, it’s hot as h@#l out here!” I told him that I already had, he looked at the dash and pointed out that...
  13. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    What I'm saying is, if you are adding up what you plan to spend on a vehicle, then there is already an "X" amount that you intend to spend. So if you get an option on top of that amount that gets you better fuel mileage then you will be saving money on fuel so at some point the fuel savings...
  14. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    It also depends on how long you own the vehicle. On a longer timeline, it takes less to cover the extra cost. My current plan is to run this truck long enough that EV batteries have improved enough to increase range and charging availability has considerably matured.
  15. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    Finally clicked off 600 miles so I should be getting good and broke in now. Going to work, about 13 full or near full stops and roughly 27 miles total…24.5 MPG. Roughly 24 miles on gas, the other three on full electric. Coming home, 16 near or full stops (damm stoplights) and the same 27...

    Yep. :) Grats on your truck arriving BTW.
  17. 4/26 Build Week

    Oh, I'm not going anywhere. I'll still lurk here. :)

    I figured I'd sign off this thread a little differently than just by posting a few pictures. So here is a short little video...shot in 4k 60fps. :)
  19. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    Well, my last truck nuked an oil seal in one of the turbo's on the first day I had it after I put my foot all the way down. I'm going to let this one get a few miles on it before I really wring it out.
  20. What kind of MPG mileage are you getting with your Powerboost?

    I'll be the one to ask...did you really take a picture running 106MPH? I'm not sure what I'm more impressed with...taking a pic while running over 100MPH or that the truck is only running 2600 RPM's while doing it. I just got my Powerboost yesterday and I haven't rolled over 100 miles...
