  1. Post Your List of Repairs/Failures (Warranty, or otherwise)

    Hey @Ford Motor Company I just called customer service and they said they would do NOTHING in compensation for my truck being in the shop more than a dozen times in my 1 1/2 year ownership. It’s currently in the shop without a rental or anything. Thinking about ordering a giant “My Ford is a...
  2. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    The shock load theory cooked up here may have some teeth to it. Consider how many times the differential is changing output side to side for inner/outer wheels when turning and cornering. How many times does a wheel have no traction on ice/grass/wet pavement then suddenly have grip and the...
  3. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    Dimensionally yes, there’s also a thickness = spring force ratio considerations, out of my realm but we use Fastenal(bolt suppliers…. Really good ones) up here in Canada, pretty sure it’s an American outfit. They really know nuts and bolts.
  4. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    Sudden shock load on the bolts? 🤔 Interesting thoughts gents. Would it help if one applies buffer material between the washer and bolt as suggested…. Maybe the use a spring washer taking some of that sudden load out of the equation:
  5. 2022 - Bilstein 5100 possible steering issue?

    This generation is know for sticky IWE’s, there’s a few more posts on here regarding it, they’re all electronic now, no vacuum actuated garbage of yesteryear. Try starting the truck and trying the axle moving with the wheel on both sides. I would go back to easiest things first, front - back...
  6. 2022 - Bilstein 5100 possible steering issue?

    Jack it up and turn the wheel 🛞 , check if the axle moves with it, if so - look at the EWE’s.
  7. Adding a Winch

    That looks awesome, was that a custom mount or is someone making that commercially? I did a quick google and couldn’t find a winch mount option like that one, pretty much exactly what I’ve been looking for.
  8. WDH advice

    I love my Blue ox… Propride is the best but I’m not spending the money they want for one.
  9. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    How does one fix a misaligned axle shaft inside of tube with two sets of bearings locating the axle shaft? How is this misaligned in the first place? Just all that movement front the hub assembly Bolted on the outer axle tube??? so many questions on this, hard to wrap my non engineering brain...
  10. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    snake, totally agree with the “experimentation” belief, in fact your knowledge based implementation of a harder bolt and with less torque stretch on the threads is a great idea I’m interested in reading how this pans out. I also wonder what Ford has dreamed up, and if it’s hindering any testing…...
  11. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    They gotta do something with all those leftovers lol. I also think mine is starting with the light clicking, rattle can noise especially next to a wall at a drive thru. 27k miles, towed lots with it, 5.0 so obviously has less torque than the equivalent powerboost models which may have made it...
  12. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    My .02$ on this is that the implementation of this 3/4 floating rear axle has been a fail in engineering. I think the simplest fix is not to pour more money in that engineering failure, rather replace it with a known working rear axle setup, my hope would be the full float from the <9800lbs...
  13. NHTSA Safety Recall (23V-896) on 113,000 F-150 Trucks with Trailer Tow Max Duty Package

    Careful @Snakebitten Ford engineering may steal your idea for the 2nd 1/4 remedy 😂
  14. Ford Responsiveness

    It’s sad because I’m just old enough to remember good quality customer service. You call the Ford Motor Company now and get someone, a human, on the phone to have a conversation with and they may as well be an AI bot, scripted, uniformed, uncaring, completely powerless to actually help or solve...
  15. PowerBoost Creek Crossings

    Article from overseas says 600mm (23” in freedom units) for standard 4x4 F150, probably a bit higher in the tremor with lift and tire size. It’s a 4x4 tool, treat it as such, some folks need to cross rivers and others need it to crawl the mall’s on Saturdays.
  16. Ford ESP Extended Service Plan offered @ dealer cost (by Granger Ford - February only special)!

    Hey @Granger Ford ,I just purchased my Premium Care using my US address, added the Lighting and First day rental as others have wisely suggested. Thanks for the discount, I certainly appreciate it!
  17. 1988 Police chase -- Cars were such turds

    Hey! there was about 300hp in that video… if you combine the two police cars and the suspect vehicle could have been damn near close to 300hp. 😂
  18. Post Your List of Repairs/Failures (Warranty, or otherwise)

    Dealer advised bad manufacture of the pack. From my compliant was rattling and clicking over bumps, going from reverse and drive rear end clunk, dealership determined leaf springs and it fixed the issue 100%. Mileage was about 5000.
  19. Post Your List of Repairs/Failures (Warranty, or otherwise)

    I think of note it appears to have been going on for some time, at least two generations of trucks, my dads 2016 F150 had identical electrical issues, trailer connector/module problems, and his 2019 F350 had one bad leaf pack, bad rear differential almost immediately off the sales lot and SAME...
