Default rnlcomp: Modifying Your Own Door Check Assemblies

When we first started this project, I attempted to modify the stock door check assemblies on my own.

The challenge was achieving the same depth, angles and surface finish of the factory molded part in order for the new detent to have the feel, operation and dependability of the original.

That's why we chose a precision machine shop with five-axis CNC capability to place the new "Just Right" detent accurately on the door check assembly arm.

We machine the new detent cut, and also drill a small locating hole at the base of the detent (just like the stock arm) to engage the spring-loaded followers in the door check assembly body.

Like most F-150 owners, we've spent quite a bit modifying our truck for improved performance and appearance. DD3.0 helps maintain my truck's appearance by keeping it dent free in parking lots or in the garage.

As we say around the lab: "If it prevents one ding...it doesn't cost a thing!"

Thanks for your interest.

Default HardcoreFX4: Shipping to Canada

With our Father's Day deal....shipping in the United States is free...so we are offsetting the additional cost to ship to Canada by the amount to ship in the US.

Canada shipping is normally $19.95, less $5.80, your cost $14.15.

Thanks for your interest!

I have my truck a month and it has been pissing me off since day one, especially when im parked at home cause my driveway is on a hill. Kudos for doing something about a shitty design from ford! I'll be purchasing a set as soon as the 4 door kits are ready.

How many of the hundred of thousands of '09 and newer F-150 owners participated in the survey? Just curious.

I've got one of these trucks and so does my wife, both supercrews, and have never noticed this issue, but I don't park in tight spots either or live in a giant city with 7'x12' parking spaces, although they are still not truck friendly parking spaces here.

Just got done putting mine on, took about 3 or 4 songs (how I measure time in the garage). Easy to do, didn't wear gloves and still didn't lose any blood, and I didn't throw any tools or yell motherf***er loud enough for anyone else to hear. As others have mentioned, getting the rubber/plastic plugs back in was the hardest part.

Default fordfan77: Survey and Original Thread

Since we started the original thread, "Just Right" Detent: Possible Mod, over 42,000 views and 370 replies have been recorded on this forum.

It was this level of interest by fellow F-150 fans that encouraged us to invest the time and money to develop Door Detent 3.0.

When we were about ready to launch, we sent our survey to a database of forum members who expressed interest in the product. We wanted to share the website, installation instructions, manufacturing process and learn what other mods f-150 owners have made or plan to make.

The responses confirmed our decision to make the front door unit and, now, develop the rear door unit.

So, to answer your question, we don't have hundreds of thousands of responses, but there are clearly enough F-150 owners who see this as an issue with their trucks and value the DD3.0 solution.

Thanks,

Peter
