  1. How are they on icy roads? I've had Michelin x-ice on my previous trucks and they are excellent on icy roads.
  2. From the manual.... Before Driving Off-Road Remove any underbody air deflector, if equipped. Re-attach the air deflector after off-road driving. To gain more ground clearance if needed, it may be necessary to remove the front fascia lower air dam. However, driving without the air dam reduces fuel economy. Caution Operating the vehicle for extended periods without the front fascia lower air dam installed can cause improper airflow to the engine. Reattach the front fascia air dam after off-road driving.
  3. My best ...25 MPG over 250 miles, hand calculated. Average speed probably in the 65-70 MPH area. 6.2 liter engine.
  4. Best reading was about 25 mpg US/ 30 mpg CDN on a 250 mile trip. Average over 7500 miles is 20.5. All numbers are hand calculated. I use the Road Trip app on my iphone.
  5. I've had both, a 2014 5.3 and now a 2017 6.2. US MPG averages are 17.5 MPG on the 5.3 over 18,000 miles, 20.3 MPG over 6,000 miles on the 6.2. All averages are hand calculated. So for me the 6.2 is about 15% better on fuel mileage compared to the 5.3. So the only downside is the cost of the engine which for me was about $2k. YMMV
  6. Live dangerous. Press the blue button, it won't bite! See where it takes you.
  7. Just a cautionary note. The manual states you should not tow a trailer during the breakin period (first 500 miles).
  8. It also has the 4WD indicator. The only reason I use it is when I'm in 4WD as a reminder to me to be sure that I take it out of 4WD when I no longer need it.
  9. Are you kidding me...If my wife said I could get a Raptor, I'd be at the Ford dealership to order one before she finished the sentence.LOL
  10. They must have downgraded the wipers for 2017. Mine lasted 2 months, I went back to the dealer and had them replaced at no cost to me. I said to them that wipers should last more than 2 months and they replaced them - no problem.
  11. I have a question. Why do you tint? Does it keep the inside cooler or is it for looks only?
  12. I use fuelly to track my mileage, see my sig.
  13. JMO but I don't see the value. You still need to get out your key to start the dang thing.
  14. When she gets out of the car with the FOB you should have heard a really loud annoying BEEP BEEP. Consider this BEEP BEEP an early warning. Loud enough to wake the neighbors at 4 AM in the morning. Ask me how I know. (Hint it was a Ford F150 with keyless entry/start).
