  1. That would be chassis line 5. It's not so much moving backwards, it's more that the skillets don't get turned around to move forward.

    Question About Production Cycle

    Nope. Everything comes down the line at the same time time. I may be wrong but I think we build them in the order the orders come into the plant.

    FRAP workers told to walk off line at 10 hours

    The new Bronco/Ranger/MAP thread

    So, a two door expedition then....cause thats what they are...just with an independent rear suspension instead of a solid rear axel. The Bronco never died...it morphed into the expedition...Thats why I think the new Bronco will be mid-size or smaller. I have a feeling that what ever comes out of MAP will be compact. I'm still leaning towards transit connect based, only because I think Ford needs somewhere state side to build them...But these are just my opinions and opinions are like....
  6. I think we (DTP) are the only one producing the Platinum and I'm not sure if KCAP got any King Ranch production back. Last model the Platinum/Raptor were DTP only and the King Ranch was KCAP only (as well as all 8' boxes) who knows the mix now...All I know is there are a lot of high end trucks rolling past me every night...
  7. Trust me...We are all like "WTF???"... And we started running regular cabs again this week.

    IIHS Crashed 2nd F150 Bodystyle

    If its the bars I'm thinking of, they are not welded on and I think they are just for the 4X4.

    the bumper is put on by a worker with a hoist before the body is dropped. Its secured by automation after the body is on. ^^^^ This right here...
