This sure sounds fishy to me... maybe it's true? But I'd tend to doubt it.

Special order sales are super easy for dealers. It's a guaranteed sale and they get the full hold-back as the truck...

I think it might be helpful to look at the gear ratios of the 10-speed transmission vs. the old 6-speed.

I tow a 6000# boat a few times a year and my 2010 5.4L crew cab pulled it just fine. I have to imagine my new (to me) 2015 3.5 ecoboost crew cab is going to pull it just...

Zack @ Real Truck set me up. Great price, super quick shipping, and great customer service. Love my new tonneau.

Would recommend, and will go here first for accessories in the future.

Are you planning to get a 4x4? If so, the Lariat will also have the 4A option, if that's a factor for your decision.

I'm not aware of a decent comparison tool. I ended up familiarizing myself...

FLXLT's got a great point - the transmissions do go through an initial learning phase.
I'm not sure how long the learning phase lasts, but it's free to try.

Plus, there were a number of TSB's...

Not sure if other shops will do it. I'd likely defer to a dealership to do the transmission reprogramming.

However, if you're out of warranty, I think a number of tuners will modify the...

Just traded in my 2010 crew cab 5.4L lariat... was also thinking the same thing as you - would drive that thing into the ground.

I did the work myself, so no labor.

The dealership I go to charges near list price ($72 or so) for the part, but I found it online for around $50.

It turns out, somewhere along the way, the...

Lots of folks have said this... if you get lots of ice and snow, get dedicated snow tires. Not A/T's, but real snow tires. They do make a difference.

Get some practice. Just like with other...

I use a 7-pin to 5-pin adapter and my integrated brake controller doesn't "see" the trailer.

There's a way to go to advanced mode... I think you hit the sync button and say something like "interaction mode advanced." This turns off most of the sync prompts and repeats.
