It sounds like that is not too far from you...I'd be tempted to go for a drive.

Issy, as you say, is probably a couple miles further down the road than the truck is in Seattle from Kent. But at least I can get there.

So I downloaded the Ford pass as suggested by the dealer so that Monday it goes quicker. All you need is the vin#. Then it prompts to start the truck to activate it, but obviously I'm not there right now so I can't. 10secs later it says its activate and all the info on my truck is there. I wonder if they started my truck at same time as me trying to connect? Either way it already has 41kms on it, less than half a tank and it's got good tire pressure lol. And I can see its location.

Maybe you could try the same, might get lucky

I downloaded the app a couple weeks ago and plugged in the vin # but didn't activate it. Well I did this morning. Since the vehicle is not in my possession I have no way to start the vehicle and accept whatever is supposed to pop up on the screen. Hopefully whoever starts the vehicle will hit accept.

If not I hope something doesn't get screwed up. I haven't even paid for it yet.

Default Tracking rail shipment

My truck was built in Kansas City on Sept. 10 like the window sticker indicated it would be. I was able to track the shipment to the rail yard via palsapp. Is there a way to track the rail shipment?

Text from salesman this morning. 4.5 hrs ago, my truck was passing through cumberland md heading to the jessup hub. Which id say its prolly there by now. Dealer is only an hr from there so we will see how long it takes to get there

There are a couple of threads for tracking your truck via train a quick Google search of "train tracking F150" should get you the info you need.

Just got her a few hours ago, pretty happy with it, dealer didn't clean it as well as I would have but no big deal. This little 2.7 sure is something.

Very nice looking truck, probably feels good to have it finally show up. How are you liking the Tow Mirrors? I have them as well (well will have if it ever shows up)
