Added a little bling to the Platinum

You can download the sections of Google Maps to your phone (that are not likely to have cell coverage) prior to the start of your trip. This way your map will always have data.

Not sure what being a woman has to do with this. But anyway, I found my 2015 does not have near the tight turning circle my 2005 had. Part of that is likely the longer cab that affords more rear...

I don't mean to impugn the deputy, but for all we know he was some rookie and this was his first crash scene. I'll bet my 2017 salary that the OPs truck was not hit at 55 MPH while stationary. I...

Thank you. Worst crash I ever handled was a DUI in a brand new Nissan 370z. 45 MPH zone, TCR estimated his speed at impact to be ~60 MPH. He was approaching a red light near our industrial park at...

Sorry, no. Not even close. Here is a controlled test showing what a collision at 50 MPH looks like. Granted, these vehicles are not anything similar to a F150, but then the weight of the F150...

Mine did the same at first, with the recommended wiring from Putco. The turn signal problem I've been having seems to be going away- maybe a loose wire? Anyway, with the hazards now the bar will...

This thread has pictures of a 40 MPH rear end crash into a truck. This is consistent with what I would expect to see at 40 MPH. Even if the Outlander went under the rear bumper of the OP's F150,...

I'm a LEO and investigate crashes all the time. A 55 MPH crash causes MUCH more damage than that. Just my 17 yrs of experience talking, FWIW. I've no doubt he's just relaying what the deputy on...

Just installed mine last night. I found holes in the outboard side of each frame rail that were relatively close to the mounting hole for the clevis. I'm not sure why people are having trouble...

Even with better mileage, you have to add the cost of DEF, assuming that Ford uses it to control particulates. Considering that, and guessing that the diesel will cost more than the 3.5L EB, the...

You can dispute physics all you want, but you would still be wrong. BTW, you don't have to be an ass to make a point, but in your case it's clear that's it's the choice you prefer.

Normal. Nitrogen fill is snake oil. Nitrogen follows the laws of physics (Boyle's Law, Charles' Law, Gay-Lussac's Law) just like every other gas. In fact, our atmosphere is already 78% nitrogen.

Long enough for me to plug my phone in and buckle my seat belt. In any case, nearly every major system should not have a simultaneous failure, no matter what.
