  1. Makes me wonder if I’m missing anything not having the “Off-road” mode? My brain says I’m not because I don’t go off-road. My heart says I need this feature just in case.
  2. So the built-in Google Maps won’t work if I use my hotspot on my phone to give the system a data? Edit: Never mind, I think I read it too fast. Seems like it is any data plan, a hotspot from the phone or Onstar.
  3. Good to know hotspot works. I have a 2019 RST (old Global A) and when I hotspot from my phone, the Weather app works but the Chevrolet Maps+ doesn’t. It says I need a Onstar plan. I use CarPlay so I don’t care. Good to see the 2022.5 works with hotspot. I’d still like to see CarPlay be able to take up the full screen, like the built-in Google Maps.
  4. So you can use your phone’s hotspot to use the built-in Google services without an Onstar data plan? I’ve seen conflicting info as to whether it would work via a phone’s hotspot or not.
  5. Give this a try. https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-Aluminum-Filter-Wrench-Removal/dp/B0732H789H/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?crid=WAQQQ5F7VL74&keywords=uxcell+918&qid=1667158356&qu=eyJxc2MiOiIwLjAwIiwicXNhIjoiMC4wMCIsInFzcCI6IjAuMDAifQ%3D%3D&sprefix=uxcell+918%2Caps%2C171&sr=8-2
  6. Not sure how bad North GA gets (Canadian here) but I would say adjust your speed accordingly in icy conditions. Even with the best snow/ice tires you can slide around if there is significant snow/ice on the ground and you are going fast enough. Black ice is a thing and dangerous. Sometimes it can be hard to spot it or “feel” it as you drive, so take it slow. Accelerate slowly from a stop and give yourself plenty of distance to brake slowly. In my teen years/decades ago, when I was unsure of the road conditions, I would take a step or two on my residential street (no cars around) and judge how slippery it was or if black ice was present. It doesn’t mean all the roads would be the same. The salt trucks would have probably taken care of the main roads here but it never hurts to get a feel with my boots before I got in the car. Good luck and be safe!
  7. I was told something similar when I had my sprayed by my local Line-X shop, along with the comment above about the lack of adhesion if they sprayed it. I guess the way it’s molded, it is the same thickness as if it was already sprayed. Don’t mind that it’s plastic, easy to swap if damaged and lightens the tailgate for the Mrs.
  8. If I had to guess, radio stations are stored in some sort of NVM. And the time is probably quickly sync’d via GPS on startup.
  9. He has a rear plate. He just photoshopped a black rectangle to cover it. Zoom in.
  10. Honest question because I’ve never seen the F150 cushion. Wouldn’t be the similar foam material to a Silverado/Sierra except it’s thicker?
  11. I need to do a little repair on my leather seat, just the driver seat. I want to remove the seat and be able to torque it back to spec. Anyone know the torque spec for the 4 torx bolts? Looked everywhere and couldn’t find anything for the 2019 and up.
  12. Good stuff. Following for a possible 8 speed vs 10 speed update at a later date.
  13. I ordered a new drain plug (5.3 2019) because mine was becoming a little rusty. So I ordered 1 new plug and 1 washer. But when I got the plug it seems like it comes with a blue washer already in place. The old plug only used the blue washer. So am I using only the 1 blue washer only? Or was there originally a blue and black washer used together and some how got lost during my free oil changes? Watched a few YT videos but couldn’t make out what people had, 1 or both washers. I know for the oil filter you have to be careful not to double gasket. So I assume the same rule apply with the oil drain plug but I wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing anything. As you can tell, I’m stating my self-oil-changing journey. Never done it before.
  14. I was under the impression the ‘19 - ‘22 LTD you couldn’t get the 2 speed transfer case with the 2.7. Maybe I was wrong. So I had to ask about the Refresh.
