Has anyone else noticed their hood flexing and fluttering at highway speeds? The truck I upgraded from, a 2013 Platinum, did not have this issue at all. I know older models had adjustable rubber bump stops for the hood so I assume 2021's have the same. That'll be the first place I start my trouble shooting.

Absolutely love the truck otherwise!! Just wondering if anybody else has had the same experience.

I haven't noticed it yet in my '21, but it's pretty obvious on the '17-21 Super Duty. Ford said don't worry about it. It never actually caused any problems in the four years I had the truck.

Thanks guys. Good to hear it's not a major concern. I've given the hood a good slam to make sure it's indeed closed so hopefully adjusting the bump stops does the trick. Just a little nerve wracking rolling down the highway and watching your hood do a little dance.

Adjust bump stops under hood. Quick fix

No flutter here. Mine is leveled.
