If my trail boss has a telescopic steering wheel your at4 should as well.

Maybe I haven't figured it out.  How? Thanks.

Pull the lever down under the steering wheel then just pull the wheel towards you.  Mine was a little tight but it def moves in and out.

Pull the handle all the way down under the steering wheel and pull out...

Yeah the AT4 has a telescoping steering wheel, but it doesn’t telescope far enough IMO.

Yes it worked, I just needed to pull harder.  Now it's even better. Thanks.

The AT4 definitely has a telescoping steering wheel

 

In terms of KO2 vs Ridge Grappler - all else equal it would be a toss up in my opinion. The KO2s weren’t available in the size I wanted so the decision to get the Ridge Grapplers was easy. I can’t compare the ride between the 2 - the KO2s were on 20” wheels with an aftermarket level and the Ridge Grapplers are on 18 wheels with a factory lift

 

the KO2s do run a little small so the width looks a little wider on the Ridge grapplers even though they were both 285 width

 

edited to add - on my old truck the 285/65/20 KO2s were noticeably better riding than the 285/60/20 Duratracs they replaced. I loved the look of the Duratracs but they rode harsh and made a lot of noise after about 30k miles. I replaced them at 57k miles and they still had tread left. The KO2s were at 30k+ miles when I traded the truck and weren’t even noticeably worn

OP, not trying to get into your deal, but can you post the MSRP?  I have not built one on line because I just figured they were way over my in my head limit of $55-57,000 MSRP.

As spec’d on GMC website it was $64k on the nose

 

i paid $31.5k out the door and that included $26.5k for my trade. 

 

I felt like a got an ok deal not a great one. The truck would have sold within a day or two off the dealers lot

 

if you go 5.3 instead of 6.2 and trim some options you’ll be in your range. Of course the tires and tool box were an incremental $2,000

You can always use Waze or Google Maps for traffic. The lack of adjustable pedals and the steering wheel adjustment does suck.

I traded my 8 month old 2018 F150 Lariat for my 6.2 AT4. Ford really dropped the ball on the new 5.0L.  and their 10spd.

I've owned a lot of Ford trucks and this one was the worst. So far I'm lovin this truck. The CAI and catback is just loud enough. Thought the tailgate was a gimmick until I used it. Great feature.

Yes sir.  I hear ya on that one.  We’ve had a 5.0 Ford xlt extra cab 8’ box and that transmission drives me nuts.  Also used a lot of oil first month of driving.  Spent a month at dealership and was told it’s normal.

Great breakdown of pros and cons. Here are my thoughts...

 

Additional Pros:

 Cup holders for rear seat on back of center console

 +3" of rear legroom vs k2xx

Full rear bench without cutout in center seat vs k2xx

Heated steering wheel turns on with remote start

 

Additional Cons

Larger exterior dimensions vs k2xx

No adaptive cruise (Available in 2020)

I have yet to see the heated steering wheel come on with the remote start but it's been warm here since I bought the truck. Gonna have to wait for that! I hope it's true!

I can’t believe there isn’t a hack for the “fogs with Intellibeam” issue.

Additional con - no auto wipers
