  1. Bike Rack Setups - Show Yours!

    Oh - this is a good tip on the spacer. I'll have to order those since I have same setup with retrax xr and rhino rack and the handle catches. Otherwise liking this setup, though I think going to grab different racks for on top as I have Yakima High Rollers and they are sort of a pain in the ass...
  2. State Farm Monster Loss Announced ~Insurance

    I was listening to Bloomberg Odd Lots the other day on an episode about property insurance and they also said that in that market at least (probably also for auto) insurers issue a lot of bonds also as part of their financing structure and so a lot of insurers are also getting slammed by higher...
  3. Replaced my battery with an H8. My observations:

    I finally replaced mine with an H8 (AC Delco AGM Gold for $180 on Amazon) on my 21 and so far it’s amazing. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had a fully functioning battery - I think this is the first time I’ve had auto stop start work consistently I’ve been getting updates every few days (I...
  4. Got 2 updates for n 2 days

    I finally replaced my battery that has been preventing updates since probably October or November and have been getting an every 2 to 3 days but i’m still in the 23 update era
  5. GM to add supercruise hands-free driving on rural roads

    Let’s hope though not sure I’m holding my breath… We twice a month drive down to our cabin and the drive is 145 miles of mostly straight 2 way 65mph roads and even though I’m sure would still mostly rest hand on the wheel (as I end up doing on highways anyway with BC) this would make the drive...
  6. Roll-n-lock A XT VS. RetraxPro XR

    I just put a retrax one XR on last week after 3 years with some $150 Amazon roll up cover. Was easy to install and way better than the roll up since it actually stays latched and doesn’t have a big gash where someone cut it open a few years ago. After some crazy wind the other week blew it up...
  7. How big is your garage?

    Street parking here. If we had a garage would rather use the space for a workshop than a house for a car.
  8. Horrible MPG?

    Are they load rated with the HDDP? Mine is 35psi for all 4. If they are how much do they weigh? That might be a big culprit
  9. Horrible MPG?

    I have a 21 3.5L 501A with max tow and get around 22-24 highway (generally keep it under 70 occasionally get up to 90-100 when passing but very short periods) with Michelin Defenders and about 1 mpg less with snow tires. Don’t do a ton of driving around town but it drains gas since the auto stop...
  10. 4A vs 4H Snow driving

    I’m not sure steering angle is an input so much as it just works like any AWD system in that it reduces power to automatically to keep wheel spin constant. There are mechanical fluid based AWD systems that manage this without additional “inputs”. While im sure this electronic im guessing the...
  11. 4A vs 4H Snow driving

    I live in CO and have snow tires (Bridgestone Blizzack) and use 4A in the snow 99% of the time. I only use 4H getting up our driveway to our mountain house which has a steep 90 degree turn and sometimes snow up to 8 or 10”. like most things with 4wd/awe the benefits are low speed for the extra...
  12. 87 octane fuel requirement

    Look you can visit just drive 5 over the speed limit like you would anywhere else. That is my only request.
  13. 87 octane fuel requirement

    This thread has definitely taken some turns and so my apologies if this has been addressed already but… I live in CO where 85 octane (NOT E85 that is 85% ethanol and can handle higher compression but do not use unless vehicle designed for it) is “regular” - I have been advised by people who...
  14. Ford Power-Up 6.1.0

    Update: Ford Pass tells me two updates happened last night about a half hour apart. Haven’t been out to truck to see what they were but this is since the 6.1.0. Will update if/when I get more info.
  15. Ford Power-Up 6.1.0

    Also got this today after 4.2.6 earlier this week. Hadn’t received an update since July but two in 3 days!
  16. Who is running 20” Goodyear Duratrac’s?

    I bought a pair of Duratracs when I bought my truck in Jan 21. Took them off last year after two winters of not being able to make it up our driveway if more than an inch or two of snow without putting on chains. Put in Blizzaks for winter which was world of difference and then summer I’m now on...
  17. Car Wash drive thru or at home?

    I typically go the middle route and take it the self wash car wash (but also don’t have a garage and street park so hand washing not really an option). That being said it’s been 6 months since I last washed the truck and I’m starting to think I’ve been too precious so will probably start just...
  18. 4.3.4 power update

    Thank you much! Super simple will give this a try today.
  19. 4.3.4 power update

    How does one reset the bus? I think mine had always been jacked up. Eventually updates install but it usually requires a 3+ hour drive to get to a point where it will. Another symptom of this is my auto start stop almost never works since it is always on battery charging. My truck was built...
  20. Long term review of Goodyear Wrangler Territory AT factory tires after 40k+ miles

    Yeah - I always loved cruising up the mountain roads during a storm with my old GTI with Blizzaks passing trucks/Jeeps/Subarus etc stuck sliding off the side with all season tires. The problem with that was I more than once high centered it in deep snow. Prior to putting Blizzaks on the truck I...
