There are no real downsides to 4X4.



They cost a bit more initially, but retain their value better over time. A fellow can spend a lifetime buying and trading up to new/newer trucks and spend...

My cap, topper, whatever you call it, has a plastic lip molded to fit the top of the 2011-2014 tailgate. It just bolts on to the window. It appears the rest of cap is the same. It MIGHT be possible...

Running in 3rd, or even 2nd gear pulling heavy loads up inclines is perfectly normal. Personally I find the trucks to work better if I manually downshift BEFORE the truck starts to strain under a...

For the money Coopers are never a bad choice. I have 50K on a set and could get another 10K and still be legal. But I'll replace them in October or November before winter snow or driving in mud...

It's your money, but I'd leave it as is. I've owned a lot of trucks over the years with rubber floors and never seen one damaged. It is just one more thing to cause problems. My brother has a...

There may be times where allowing it to be locked at higher wheel speeds would be nice. But I think Ford is doing the right thing by having it unlock above 30 mph. In the long run it would do more...

It is generally a good idea to have all 4 tires the same with the same miles on them. You can get some funky handling even unloaded. If you properly rotate them they'll all wear out at the same...

That is about $20-$25K less than a comparable new truck and only 3 years old, almost 4. I'd rather have a 4 year old truck with 200K on it than a 10 year old truck with 100K on it. High miles in...

Some tires can go longer. If you have a more aggressive tire on a 4X4 rotation is much more important than street tires. If you let them go too long then a wear pattern develops and it just...

Yes, it can be locked in both 4X2 , 4X4 hi, and 4X4lo. It will disengage above a certain speed, about 10mph I think. I don't know about all vehicles, but I also own a 2007 Tacoma 4X4. The 4X4...

Just a couple of months after I graduated from HS back in 1976 I bought this 1968 IH Scout. I paid one months pay in cash for it and about another weeks pay for the wheels/tires. This is what I...

The truck will pull 12,900 lbs, but your suspension isn't designed to hold more than 7050 lbs. It is the suspension that will limit how much you can tow. The max combined weight of the truck and...

As long as you get 3.55 or lower gears the 5.0 won't have any problems with that load. The 5.0 with 3.31 or higher gears struggles. Nor will the 2.7 EB. The 3.5 EB will certainly pull it with ease,...

The Raptors are set up for extreme off road driving, they are not good tow vehicles.

The 2.7 wasn't an option when I bought my truck. I didn't need the 3.5 EB and the 5.0 does what I need. Fuel mileage is at least as good as the 3.5 and the truck cost less. But when the time...

Over inflating tires will give you better fuel mileage, but could lead to uneven tire wear.

You could spend several thousand dollars experimenting with different fuels trying to determine how...

If you have CPO the powertrain is covered 7 years or 100,000 miles. Paying for any additional warranty is a waste of money.

They do think it bad to tow in high gears. Older Ford trucks, and most other manufacturers do lock out OD when in the tow mode. Newer trucks will rarely let the truck shift into the highest gear...

Ford would have replaced the 1st one, and this one if they had done the 1st. This was likely installed improperly and is not Fords problem now. I'd be calling the company who installed it.
