  1. I have 18” rst rims and I’m in Putnam. What are you looking to spend? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The f150 feels very torquey right away. Pulls nice. The 5.3 isn’t thattt bad. It picks up when you get on it. If you’re not concerned with how quick you could box someone out on the highway the 5.3 is more than fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I would love to hear how it would sound without the flapper on the highway. The gm performance exhaust deletes the flapper. Also, the flapper is a big choke point/restrictive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Did you remove the flapper valve too? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m looking at the borla pro xs muffler 40359. I’m in the same boat as you. Just too busy right now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I wasn’t a fan of the new model either. That’s why I first began looking at the 18’s. After seeing all black 19 with black bumpers my mind was changed. Looks mean Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I wonder how plasti dip would hold up on them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. $50 and under modifications

    I haven’t gotten around to it yet but was looking at the borla pro xs # 40359. I would like to cut out the flapper but haven’t heard someone post a video on highway or any of their results on a 5.3l. If you decided to bite the bullet please post a clip. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I thought your name looked familiar. Seems like you’ve had your fair share of bad luck. Like others have said, test drive em. I test drove several 2018’s and some felt different then others but had similar options. I test drove the 19’ and knew I was done. Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Welcome to the club. Ford bought my 2018 f150 back and I went and got a 2019 Silverado rst z71. Btw, couldn’t be happier. Never going back to ford again for many reasons Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Does anyone else have this problem? I brought it the dealership and they said all was ok. I thought it was gone but it’s not. Also feels like it takes a second for my brake pedal to return. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4qu8s1dpi3v3mep/IMG_4268.MOV?dl=0 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks. That looks about right Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Lets see if I could remember them all. Let’s start with vibration, ohh the vibration. They couldn’t figure that out. They checked my drive shaft, suspension, new tires, new rims. I told them to check the rear diff from the start and they never did. The rear diff was also leaking. I said that’s the perfect time to check it because they’re gonna have to re seal it. They never did. Yes, dealership was incompetent as well. Continuing, multiple sensors failed and had to be replaced. Parking brake stopped working. Had issues with four wheel drive not engaging. Rear brake lights stopped working. Once, driving down the highway with cruise control on, I hit the brakes and cruise control wouldn’t turn off. That was scary. Had to pull over on the highway, force it into park and shut the truck off. Had fluid leaking from my driveshaft. Alignment was terribly off which was fixed three separate times. Ughhh, the list goes on. And get this, they denied for a buyback twice. Passed me off to six separate case managers and two separate regional managers and played many many many games. Thank god I documented everything. Even the gm of my dealership told them they should buy it back. I met all my state requirements for a lemon law and ford kept denying me. I took them to arbitration with my attorney general. A week before my date they called me up and said after reviewing your case we would like to settle out of court. After all that, I would never ever go through ford again. I know there are bad apples. However, the way I was treated or mistreated I should say was horrendous. Just to give you a time frame, the truck was bought in May 2018. By June was in the shop. By August I already met my states requirements and opened my first buyback case. Didn’t settle til end of February. Which got me here, purchasing a Silverado a week after receiving my settlement check. Woooooo that was long winded Edit: I also forgot to mention my brake booster was replaced multiple times due to failure and my pedal assembly replaced because it freaked like an old barn door and they couldn’t fix it.

  14. I had a 2018 f150 crew cab Stx 2.7l with 3.55 elocker. I currently own a 2019 Silverado rst z71 5.3l with the 3.23. Both are crew cabs. Let me start off but saying ford bought my truck back. That bad. Anyway, I am very pleased with the Chevy. I’m averaging the same mpg with the Chevy which I was shocked. I thought it would be a little less. The ride quality is much better than the ford. Yes, my ford was a lemon bet in terms of handling the Chevy takes turns much better whereas the ford felt more like a work truck. I do have to say the fords tt 2.7l was fast or at least feels faster. Otherwise, hands down the Chevy feels so much better in every way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
