According to everything that I have read, the 2011 models had a fair number of issues with them--failing turbos, broken engine valves, etc. I would look at a later model to limit the amount of...

Seriously doubt that it damaged the motor in any way; more likely it did a faster break-in than most see. If they were not towing and were simply climbing, it should not be a blip on the radar for...

I am running the stock 20" Michelins (which I despise--3 out of 4 have been replaced due to defects) with 65PSI in each one. No modifications, but I am running a NAPA Gold air filter instead of the...

I think they are close or maybe even the same--I have the "short" bed version with 4x4 and 3.55 gears.

I am in the Houston area as well and "in town" I usually average about 17.9, but it can drop to 15.x depending on traffic. I have managed 23.2 on the open road, but there are lots of variables that...

Thanks everyone for all of the information and the tips. Moral of the story (at least for me); ALWAYS manually lock the hubs and you leave nothing to chance.

Thanks for the input. I would have thought they would have locked in on the drive to our parking spot, but perhaps not.

Please send me the test process.

E-locker was on. I guess (unless there is a bigger problem), the hubs did not engage.

Thanks both. I have not had that happen before. Is this a normal occurrence or just something that happens randomly? I switched to 4x4H several miles before I was stuck.

Stuck in sand yesterday--4x4 did not seem to work

Thanks for the thoughts. I will likely post it at 50K and allow for some wiggle room, but the warranty alone is worth quite a bit--including piece of mind for the new owner. But, I will keep it...

I think we both know the answer to that one. Blackstone estimates fuel dilution based upon flashpoint and that test is highly subjective because it is read by a human and if not read at the correct...

I have not seen a bottle of T-6 in the wild that has the new Ford specification listed on it nor have I found a PDS on the Shell website that has the new specification.

Have you found this?
