Thanks for your input.

And I fully realize what I've done and I'm not proud of joining the ranks of yuppies driving a luxury 1/2 ton crew cab grocery-getters. But I also don't understand the...

It is annoying (and it happens every day) when someone gets on and says "My truck won't start". We then ask, well what do you drive?

"A 2011 F150". OK, that doesn't help much, we to know what...

I didn't realize Ford ever offered the old limited slip diffs in this generation F150. Next time the clutches go out you should have a True Trac installed, it will last the life of the truck (and...

Putting in better halogens will help some, but will probably leave you disappointed compared to the LED lightbar you already have. My truck came with the HID’s and they are indeed impressive.

The brake system is designed for the weight and potential towing load of the truck, so it shouldn't take any more force from your right foot to stop than it would if you were driving a civic. If you...

You certainly won't hurt anything by letting the truck idle for a few minutes, but our turbo's are water cooled and the system is valved so that coolant can still circulate and continue to cool the...

Maybe, but at least some opinions can be backed up by facts.

A blanket statement like "ecoboost will leave you frustrated and 5.0 will give you better ownership experience" really is a bs opinion...

Regardless of the lug nut design, it's always a good idea to use a socket that fits! I once twisted a lug nut on my Grandpa's Dodge Ram quite a bit with a regular depth socket when trying to remove...

Either way you need traction. I've seen a truck with a winch try to pull another truck out of the mud but instead ended up getting dragged towards the stuck truck. Straps actually have a slight...

It annoys me too when folks claim new rotors "aren't much more" than turning. The parts store 2 miles from me charges $15 per rotor and it takes them about an hour.

Also, breaking in new pads and...

I'll echo the other comments, 4X4 should only be used in low traction like snow and mud. Using it on pavement can stress the drivetrain, which leads to that hop feeling you describe as the tires...

If you have any interest at all in these 2 engines you should go test drive both. The better reliability of the 5.0 is purely speculation at this point as there isnít enough real data to say one is...

For the basics I'd start here, you've listed the 10th-13th generations.

I wouldn't worry about the engines in any of the trucks. What I would worry about is smaller parts nickle and diming you in the 2015 and possibly a 2016. With it being a new model year, Ford spent...

One thing that hasn't been mentioned is your truck's configuration makes a difference. A crew cab short bed will do better without weight than a regular cab long bed. Still though, I like to add...

I'm happy with the 5* on my 2014 EB. I got the 87 perf/tow, 89 perf/tow, 93 perf/tow, and 93 performance. Right when I got the tuner I spent a month driving on each tune, working from lowest power...

Out of the 4 tire's you listed, I'd go with the BFG's.

If you open it up to other choices, I'd go with Michelin LTX A/T2's. They aren't quite as aggressive off-road, but they are stellar on-road.

What? I can scoot along all day and keep in front of traffic and never have to dive very deep at all into the throttle to do so.

I'd say it's the opposite, with a NA engine you need to get in...

If you can be happy with a 6 cylinder, go that route. 9,000 more miles really isn't that much to get into the newer body style and lighter truck (that will help fuel economy that much more). I'd...

Is this a fiberglass cover? Not sure if that would fit, but my 2014 has a Extang trifecta hard cover from a 2015+ and it fits ok.
