well, if I recall, the " e model" came about around the Round Table when people were crawling all over one another to buy ANYTHING electric...a nod should be given to the Media outlests for prortraying anything BEV as the next coming. BEV was promoted as being a HUGE part of Fords future if not its entirety....I know our principle was shit scared of missing "that" wave...and understandably so given the craziness that was BEV in its infancy. As , I think is somewhat obvious, I didnt buy into the frenzy and veiwed that as somewhat of a mistake...but I cannot in any way blame the Dealers that committed given all the hype/ propoganda.....Ford did EXACTLY the same with Lincoln if you recall, promised outrageously good and exciting ( read PROFITABLE self selling market leading) product IF Millions of diollars were invested in the Dealerships presentation and facilitiy upgrades. If you didnt, you werent going to get the product that was going lead to Lincolns resurgence ...kind of shitty to the dealers that had substandard product for so long and were surviving on their Used Cars to survive.
twist words much? it may seem I feel that way sometimes, but I have never said anyone was or should abandon anything...slowing down, yes, and rightfully so....abandoning no...its a reality check....pretty much something Ive said from the get go...
Most folks probably like the center console. I prefer the bench seat with a small storage in the armrest and a small storage under the seat. That way the grandkids can sit next to me - or my wife.
We're had several F150 and one F450 with the power running boards. They're awesome. But, now Ford says you can't have them if you opt for the bench seat. And I really don't like the cavernous hole of the center console. My wife's F150 has that and it just fills up with stuff and a lot of stuff just gets buried and never seen again.
If I order another F450 with bench seat is it easy enough to add the power running boards? They are way cost prohibitive to buy from the parts department but I'll be glad to source some from a junkyard. Installing them doesn't look too hard. Does anybody know what it takes to activate the logic?
